Katie Hunt

What is your business called and what does it do?

I have two businesses, Katie’s Wallpaper Installation Inc, we specialize in luxury wallpaper installations. And REMIX Walls is my wallpaper collection.

What made you want to do this work?

I’ve always been fascinated by design, but travelling started it all! After staying at a 5-star hotel for a week and coming back home (over 12 years ago), I felt like my house was boring and needed some life. Adding wallpaper to my house added warmth and interest to my walls. Once I wallpapered my whole house, I was hooked on the transformation, and Katie’s Wallpaper was born.
