Meet Campbell & Co. Home / Katie Campbell Interiors & Design
Get to know the people behind your favourite places & spaces in downtown Burlington! We’ll be introducing you to new owners & businesses throughout the year!
1. Why did you start/open your business?
I started my residential design firm in 2014. I wanted to own my own business to have flexibility as I started my family (instead I learned that I work 24/7 and my company owns me haha). In 2020 when we had to temporarily close our doors and could no longer enter client homes during the pandemic, I needed a way to diversify my income, so I started our home décor and lifestyle shop online. I sold online for almost a year before opening our first Brick & Mortar. Now in our new location we have finally found home and look forward to growing in this amazing community.
2. Tell us a little bit about yourselves and your business.
I love homes. I love what home means to people, and I love that what we do changes how people live and improves their quality of life. From a very young age I rearranged my own bedroom weekly (at a minimum) and understood the impact that even a small change could have on how you view and use your space. On top of our full-service design offering, our retail shop offers a designer curated selection of home goods and lifestyle products. We offer bundles of products that are made to assist with gift giving and simple vignettes, taking the guesswork out of decorating. We also offer fresh plants and flowers!
3. What made you choose Downtown Burlington?
I live in Burlington myself and love what our downtown has to offer. It is a vibrant and diverse community full of amazing and supportive small business owners. We have felt very welcomed by our neighbours here and love the many events the downtown puts on to support their business owners. We specifically chose the Village Square for our shop and design firm because of the charm and character – we wanted a very warm and home-like environment and this feels very special.
4. What other downtown businesses do you frequent and do business with?
I love supporting our other local businesses (and definitely do my fair share in lunches alone haha). To satisfy my daily coffee addiction, I frequent Lola’s and Tamp Coffee in the Village Square for a vanilla latte. For lunch I often treat my staff to Mikado sushi or Son of a Peach pizzas and garlic knots. I often meet a friend for dinner at Burro Tacos on Brant…noticing a theme here? I also love supporting my friends at Waves in the Village and White Coconut for a wardrobe refresh.
5. If you could help someone famous style a room … who would that person be, what room would you choose to style and why?
I would LOVE to style Ina Garten’s East Hamptons kitchen. Honestly, that woman needs no help from me but any excuse I could get to meet her, walk her gardens and taste her food – I am in!
Please give Katie and her team a warm Burlington Downtown welcome and say hi to them the next time you see them in our Downtown. You can follow these awesome businesses on Instagram at @campbellcohome & @katiecampbellinteriors
