Dwelling is a boutique interior design studio located in Jackson Hole, WY, specializing in new construction, remodels, custom furnishings, lighting, and artwork.
Kate Binger founded Designed Interiors, LLC in 2007, which evolved into Dwelling in 2010.
Dwelling’s mission is to fuse fresh, textured design into the homes of the West, while building meaningful, collaborative relationships with clients, design partners and craftspeople. Using the abundance of local heritage and traditional western design in the region as a touchstone, Kate brings a “Mountain Modern” aesthetic to her projects. She eagerly undertakes designing and creating unique spaces that bridge rustic elements of the rugged Wyoming landscape and lifestyle with the contemporary trends of the modern design world.
Developing personal relationships with her clients, Kate draws inspiration from their individual experiences, design preferences, and lifestyle. This collaboration results in a completely customized space, designed to specifically fit each client’s way of life. Through her love of rich textiles, relationships with local artisans and craftspeople, and by focusing on materials indigenous to the region, Kate creates fully custom elements to enhance each client’s home.
Kate strives to create eclectic spaces that grow with and contribute to her client’s lifestyles, incorporating comfort, flow, texture and color.
With a hands-on approach to project management, she is involved in all phases of the design process, from concept to completion. She feels her camaraderie and positive relationships with her innovative design team and skilled local tradespeople are her greatest asset and the key to a seamless project. Whether it is a new build, full-scale remodel or a single room, Kate takes pride in her practice of mindful design and follow through.
Kate’s background includes a BS from Miami University in Art Education with a minor in Fine Arts and Family Studies, as well as a FIDER accreditation from UCLA Interior Design School. Her education, coupled with 17 years of work experience and her passion for travelling and culture, has provided a diverse palette for her residential and commercial work. Kate’s true talent lies in her ability for smart space planning and her ability to fuse eclectic design elements.
Kate happily resides in Wilson, WY with her rescue dog / spirit animal, Vida.
