Copeland + Co. is a full-service interior design and home staging studio based in Portland, Oregon. What started as a wild idea over brisket hash and too much coffee quickly grew into a full-time, full-on obsession. While many things have changed since this venture began, our philosophy remains constant: Home is the place that reminds us of who we are. It’s the place to let it all go, to recharge, to surround ourselves with people and things we love and that make us feel loved. It’s walking into the kitchen to endless possibilities. It’s crawling into bed at night for true rest. It’s the stories we tell and the secrets we keep. We take it with us when we leave and we make it when it’s missing. Home is not always where, but what.
KATHERINE MAUND, Founder
Kat is an ice cream fiend, oversharer, and the founder and creative director of Copeland + Co. She used to tell big brand stories in a promising advertising career, but after spending years of lunch breaks poring over design websites, decided to change career paths and has never looked back. She obsesses over the details that turn a house into a home and has no intention of giving up her search for the perfect chair. She thinks that all conversations should be had over a tasty treat (cookies, please) and that laughter is the best medicine.
MATTIE TIEGREEN, Partner
Mattie is an Oreo enthusiast, serial idea-er, and partner and design lead at Copeland + Co. She’s spent the past 5 years designing strategic branding and websites for fierce female-run companies but after moving to Portland, longed to immerse herself in the design community and work physically alongside a team. She believes that good design outlasts trends and reflects not only a client’s visual style, but also (most importantly) the way they live and operate in their space. She also believes her daughter is the cutest human on the planet but she knows she’s biased, so we’ll let Kat confirm.
JESSICA ASPEN, Staging Design
A styling force de majeure and general get-stuff-done’r, Jess came to us by way of Instagram. She’s regularly fueled by the best coffee Portland has to offer and can be found (off-duty) in her beautiful home herding her three feminist sons.
