The Mira Jean Story

Kate Hougen launched Mira Jean Designs in 2014 to bring together her passion for design with her love of nature. As a former Director of Marketing at the Nature Conservancy, Kate blends inspiration from nature, her children and loving memories of coastal vacations to create luxurious textiles by the yard, wallpaper and home decor products on 100% GOTS-certified organic fabrics that are made in the USA. Every product design begins with a painting, and every painting begins in nature.


Mira Jean Designs has been featured in Traditional Home, The Washington Post, DC by Design, Pattern Observer, Fast Company, Home & Design, Alexandria Stylebook, Arlington Magazine and more. In 2017, Kate was a featured speaker at the DC Design House. In 2018, she began offering interior decorating services, and loves every minute she can spend helping people to refresh their homes and interiors.


When Kate's not designing or decorating, she enjoys spending time with her husband and two children, and taking her beloved Bernese Mountain Dog for long walks on the trails near her home in Arlington, Virginia.
