Katie Skocik

When Katie Skocik and her family moved into their 1933 Tudor home on Hoodridge Drive in the quaint, historic town of Mt. Lebanon, PA the first thing she did was renovate and redesign. She mixed the natural traditional elements of the home with a crisp modern take. Friends responded with requests to help with their homes. With word of mouth referrals exploding and a desire to fulfill her natural creativity, Katie created HOODRIDGE Design, a curated home design and renovation experience for modern living. Along with Katie's design experience from Ethan Allen and a business degree she has been able to grow Hoodridge Design into a thriving interior design business. 

Katie Nicolotti

Not long after Katie Skocik renovated her home, a new neighbor moved onto Hoodridge Drive. The two quickly collaborated over their love of design and the unique challenge that Mt. Lebanon homes presented: how to modernize an older home without losing the unique charm that each home carries. Soon after, Katie S welcomed Katie N as a designer at HOODRIDGE Design. 

Together they have opened an office in the heart of Mt. Lebanon. The office features a showcase room, material and textile samples, and the office dog, Mo.
