About us

Decor You Adore is the collaborative effort of Jacki Poovey and Catherine Shireman and is based in the Raleigh-Durham region.

The glamorous life of a decorating diva!  Yes, that's a wagon--with accessories.

Jacki has always enjoyed making a house into a home that her family can LIVE in.  She and her husband Patrick are parents to three, active t(w)een boys.  Patrick reluctantly tags along as his wife dreams up carpentry projects for him to make their home more fabulous AND functional.

Jacki holds a B.A. in Communications from Elon College.  After enjoying a successful career as a technical writer, she is now a stay-at-home mom.  The four boys are keeping her VERY busy but she finds time to squeeze in some interior design for real life--hers and her clients.

Apparently this is how I look a lot.  Gotta say I do love the iPhone!

Catherine caught the interior design bug from Jacki (watch out--it IS contagious!)  She and her husband Bobby are parents to two young children, two dogs, 1 cat and a bird (the hermit crab didn't make it through 2012).  Since she lives in a virtual zoo, it is imperative that her adorable decor is functional.  And since she has champagne tastes on a beer budget...it must be frugal as well.

Catherine holds a B.A. in Political Science from UNC-Chapel Hill.  In her spare time (ha!) she enjoys fundraising for St. Baldrick's Foundation.  She's also squeezing in some interior design for real life and blogging about it!

Both of us are nuts for BUNNIES! Real ones, stuffed ones, concrete, paintings and the like, bunnies are just daaaannnnngggg cute. Who can resist floppy ears? Our personal decor always includes bunnies.
