Name: Katie Zamprioli
Location: Sunland-Tujunga, California
Size: 1,222 square feet
Years Lived In: 1 year, owned

Katie Zamprioli (or @katiemackmusic as she’s known on Instagram) didn’t set out to make her home Insta-famous, but once she began posting photos of her candy-colored desert-meets-jungle interior, the fans came pouring in. In just one year she has transformed her Los Angeles-area home into a fully decorated oasis, where every inch is worth a closer look.

Katie’s passion for design coupled with an insatiable need to perpetually rearrange things has provided her (and her followers) with an endless amount of ever-changing content to ogle. With 97 plants and a constant flow of beautiful pieces going in and out of her home, there seems to be a lifeblood streaming throughout the space that gives it a peaceful energy, despite its maximal aesthetic. Perhaps it’s this peaceful lifeblood that keeps her minimalist husband, Mirage, from wanting to constantly declutter.

Having a 4-year-old son and a 12-year-old Brussels Griffon hasn’t stopped Katie from collecting a wide array of pieces, including handmade breakables and one-of-a-kind vintage pieces. She doesn’t believe in being too precious with her material possessions, and that’s what keeps her decorating process fun and upbeat. It has also taught her 4-year-old son, Sebastian, to be able to exist among delicate ceramics and luxurious fabrics—an important fundamental skill.
