Jaclyn Joslin, Founder & Designer
Jaclyn attended design school in Southern California and was greatly influenced and inspired by the casual, eclectic and glamorous lifestyle that is ubiquitous of California. In 2008, she moved home to Kansas City and opened her first furniture retail and interior design showroom, Urban Dwellings Design, in the historic River Market of downtown Kansas City. In 2012, Jaclyn closed Urban Dwellings and moved her business across town founding her second interior design & home decor boutique, Coveted Home. Both businesses have given her an outlet to help others by enriching lives through incorporating beauty, comfort and individuality to her clients homes.
Jaclyn loves getting to know her clients during the design process. Figuring out what “lights them up” is a key element for her in designing successful spaces that will be lived in and loved for years to come. Always mixing styles, layering, adding texture and rhythm, designing for others is what makes her “job” so fulfilling. A thoughtful and well planned design approach that is executed in a concise manner by Jaclyn and her design team is the top priority for providing her clients.
“My goal is making sure that the design process is as pleasurable as the outcome with the ending result being a home that clients will love and their guests will covet.”
Melanie Clouser, Creative Director
Growing up in Kansas City, Melanie reflects on her childhood as the main inspiration for her design aesthetic. Frequenting antique malls and flea markets alongside her mother, Melanie’s appreciation for the “history of things” began to take shape. While studying art at Park University, she was introduced to the local vintage furniture and home decor community. After graduating with a bachelor’s degree in ceramics, she curated a space of her own for five years at Good Ju Ju in the West Bottoms, a well known KC hot spot for vintage furniture and reclaimed oddities. It was here along with her experience of sales and merchandising at Anthropologie that she developed a well trained eye as well as a talent for visual display.
Melanie believes that design is not only an outlet for personal expression, but a way to tell a story through environmental connection. Using artistic elements such as weight, composition, tone, and texture, a space should reflect one’s true individual style.
Simone, Shop Greeter
Simone, a Brussles Griffon, was born on a farm and raised in a furniture store making her the embodiment of the perfect dog. She is passionate about her role at Coveted Home and greets most visitors with a few kisses. She always offers up a spot next to her on the furniture and happily welcomes you to rub her belly while you take a seat.
When she is not hard at work Simone loves to go on walks, frolick in the woods and take naps. Her true joy is being around people though so stop in and say hi.
Whenever I'm in or around Corinth square, I make it a point to stop by the Coveted Home. I'm always very excited to see what new & interesting pieces they have in. I'm glad they're here, I can't think of another store like it KC.Regina Daughtry

Jaclyn’s design expertise was very important in our family’s newly renovated home. She designed a plan for our living room with helpful suggestions for layout. When I expressed my preferences she readily made changes to accommodate. My husband and I love the stylish “liveability” of our new space!Joni Friedrich
Jaclyn is a clever designer with limitless imagination! She transformed my home into a comfortable reflection of my family’s essential style--warm and inviting, yet vibrant and fun. Touches of whimsy and statement pieces blend together to create a home we love.Kristin Stinson
