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.
Meet The Team
Founder & Creative Director
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 couldn’t deny her passion for interiors after many lunch breaks spent in design school. 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 and that laughter is the best medicine.
Mattie is an Oreo enthusiast, serial idea-er, and vignette queen. She 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 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.
Though she be but little, she is fierce. Erica loves a good challenge- whether it's skiing where she grew up in Colorado, surviving toddler life with her two little boys or remodeling her 100 year old home in Portland. She believes cozy is a lifestyle and loves bringing warmth and personality to a space to truly make it feel like home. Erica first met Kat while producing in the fast-paced advertising world and the love of all things details and design has now reconnected them years later.
A styling force de majeure and general get-stuff-done’r, Jess came to us by way of Instagram. She’s a master of floor plans and styles all of our staging projects. 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.
Hillary has managed some of the most famous (and delicious) restaurants in Portland. She’s an operations wizard who sweats every detail and is the go-to for all staging matters. When she’s not slaying spreadsheets or shooting the proverbial sh*t with clients, she can be found at the local swimming hole with her two daughters or dreaming of her next tattoo.
