March #mycovetedhome round up: New Friends and Familiar Faces

It’s one thing making friends with so many great and inspiring accounts on Instagram. It’s another to watch them grow and blossom into their own successful lives and projects.

That’s why this month we’re focusing our attention on New Friends and Familiar Faces. Checking in with those who have been inspiring us since the beginning and those who are new to the scene. 

Here are some of our favorites (all tagged #mycovetedhome in the month of March) listed in chronological order of us connecting on Instagram, from oldest to newest. The variety of styles is what we love most about this roundup, from trad to mod to glam and add a dash of boho, there’s a little bit of everything. 

And as always, remember to tag us at #mycovetedhome for a chance to be featured!

February #MyCovetedHome Roundup: Our Favorite Gallery Walls

As always, the #MyCovetedHome hashtag was brimming with excellent and inspiring moments this month, but what really got us going were the following spaces featuring everyone’s favorite trend that we hope never goes out of style: the gallery wall! While each of these were exceptionally personal and unique, they had one thing in common; absolutely gorgeous pieces that became something so much more when hung together.

 

This space by @studioplumb is just absolutely, jaw-droppingly good, and brimming with enviable style. From the eclectic gallery wall, to the jewel-tones and sculptural plants, this is one grand gallery wall. 

From @k.laingdesign comes this light and bright gallery wall, replete with a living element, mirror, tribal art, fur, and a kitty portrait. The sculptural bench, fabulous pillows, and shaggy fur take this space to the next level.

This inspiring gallery wall, courtesy of @emilygradydodge, is a personal, fun and eclectic example. We love the basket, the pair of prints, and especially that gorgeous taupe vase below! 

For a totally unexpected but VERY chic gallery wall, @tinkerabout hung books with their pages open to create this stunning moment. We especially love that clock and the antique card cabinet–that shade of blue is absolutely perfect. 

 

As always, keep tagging #MyCovetedHome to show us your own take on inspired interiors and for a chance to be featured. Thanks for sharing!

We are the Coveted Home

gift certificate gift card

We are Coveted Home

The Coveted Home team is a small group of enthusiastic individuals, who possess an array of expertise and talents and share a common goal. Our goal is to help people better design their lives. We do this by providing  high-quality, unique furniture and home accessories and outstanding service to our customers and clients. Kansas City has not always been on the forefront of the design world. However, it is steadily growing a reputation for being a fashionable, innovative, and creative hot spot. We’re excited to be on the front line of the design revolution that is happening in this city.

Our clientele is intelligent and discerning. They are not satisfied with the generic products or impersonal service that they find at chain stores. Our customers want to shop where they can find something new and original. They want to talk to real, knowledgeable people who care about them and the community. Without trying to sound too self-congratulatory, we are proud of who we are, what we do, and the products that we carry! Without further ado, these are the people who make Coveted Home, Coveted Home:

Jaclyn Joslin // Owner + Interior Designer

Jaclyn Headshot2 (1)

Jaclyn’s style: modern – organic – comfortable

“Jaclyn is one of the most original and stylish women I know. Her incessant hunger for the new and the intriguing inspires me every day. Her spaces are the embodiment of comfortable, tasteful, livable design. Working for her is the best hands-on education I could ask for.”  – Addison

Jaclyn is the heart and soul of Coveted home. It’s fascinating to watch her seamlessly handle the ins-and-outs of owning a successful retail and interior design business. She is continuously seeking out new products and methods in order to offer the best goods and services to our clientele. She also has an ability to find and foster her team members’ talents. Jaclyn became interested in interior design while working towards a degree in the Humanities. She had a natural aptitude for design, and eventually went back to earn an associates degree in interior design. When she’s not at work (or working from home), Jaclyn can be found “laying low” at home with Simone and her boyfriend Nick, going on walks or hikes, and riding her bike. She also enjoys hanging out with family and friends and traveling.

“I love creating solutions for people’s design problems. One of my favorite things to hear is “I love that idea, I would have never thought of that.” I know I’ve done something good when a client makes a comment along those lines. I also love seeing clients rooms transformed, the before and after thing is pretty awesome. ” – Jaclyn

Addison Ford // Sales Associate + Stylist

Addison’s style: warm – sculptural – austere

“Addison has an uncanny knack for uncovering the most obscure and interesting design artifacts and collectibles. His passion for all things design related is admirable and contagious!” – Jaclyn

Addison was exposed to design and collecting early; he attended his first auction at six weeks old! He says, “design piqued my interest as a way of integrating the disparate eras and contexts I adore, and objects I’ve collected, into a cohesive and beautiful finished space”. We are all in awe of the breadth of knowledge that Addison possesses in regards to all things design and especially vintage design. He gets excited about helping customers select the perfect pieces for their homes. When he’s not at Coveted Home, Addison can be found antiquing, out and about with friends, or relaxing at home with his partner Nicholas and their Russian Blue cats.

“The best part of my job is helping to give our clients and customers the most inspiring, unexpected and beautiful place to shop for their homes in Kansas City. Another favorite part is the non-stop learning process that happens when any group of creative and talented people work together for a common cause. A very real sense of family, not just within the team, but with our customers and clients, means very much to me.” – Addison

Rachel Kauffman // Sales Associate + Social Media Specialist

Rachel

Rachel’s style: juxtaposed – relaxed – Collected

“I so admire Rachel’s ability to troubleshoot situations. She doesn’t give up and is quick to learn how to remedy any issue. And her eye for vintage is fantastic!” – Melanie

Rachel joined the Coveted Home crew shortly after our move to the Plaza. Like many of her co-workers, her love of interior design was sparked by her interest in all things vintage. Her educational background is in sociology and psychology, which she finds useful in her day-to-day work. “Interior design is a multidisciplinary field; it combines art and design, ergonomics, psychology, and history. It’s important to understand the aesthetic intention as well as a room’s purpose and the people who are going to be using it”. Rachel usually spends her free time hanging out with her husband, son, and pets. She can also be found thrifting or at home working on her mid-century ranch.

“When I’m at Coveted Home, I’m surrounded by good people and beautifully curated objects; honestly, it doesn’t even feel like work. I get to help others improve their quality of life through good design and learn something new every day.” – Rachel

Simone is a Brussels Griffon and has been with Coveted Home for almost eight years! She has grown up in the store and loves the shop dog lifestyle. She is a total extrovert and enjoys meeting new people and other dogs and getting lots of attention. She also enjoys sunbathing and going for walks.

“I am so honored that each of these talented and beautiful people have chosen to be a part of the CH team! “ – Jaclyn
