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 the furniture retail showroom and interior design studio Urban Dwellings Design. This business experience provided the foundation for a new business model with a more clear and refined vision. In 2012 Jaclyn closed Urban Dwellings and founded Coveted Home with the belief that she could enrich others lives by helping them incorporate beauty, comfort and individuality in their homes.
Jaclyn is known for her modern sensibilities and creating masterful mixes of styles and time periods. Blending feminine and masculine qualities, modern and rustic, creating tension that gives a space interest and verve has become her signature look. 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.

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
