all about the owner

Sup, future friend!

My name is Katie Lyons-Church, and I am the owner of this little dream space called MODRN GR.

The thought that I could make my hobby of DESIGNING AND STYLING spaces into a career took roughly 30 years for me to figure out. SO I’LL START THIS INTRODUCTION WITH SOME UNSOLICITED ADVICE… YOU ARE DOING OKAY, TRUST ME. EVERYTHING FOR ME HAS BEEN TRIAL AND ERROR AND THINGS ARE JUST NOW STARTING TO FIT TOGETHER. Something I have come to realize is that life has to position itself in juuust the right way in order for things to fall into the right place, TIMING IS REALLY EVERYTHING. Everyday I walk up to the shop and put the key in the door, I get a wave of emotion. This life experience is really beyond what I ever expected and I will be forever INSPIRED BY IT.

SELLING “THINGS” ISN’T THE PURPOSE FOR ME. MEETING MY COMMUNITY AND HELPING THEM CHOOSE THE MOST PERFECT ITEMS FOR THEIR FORTRESS OF SOLITUDE IS MY “WHY”. I REALLY LOVE MEETING NEW PEOPLE AND LEARNING ABOUT THEIR STYLE AND WHAT DOMESTIC DREAMS THEY HAVE. COME TO THE STORE, LETS MEET.

Just a few things about me…

I am married to the love of my life, Mike Church. He inspires me to be better in every single sense of the word, and he keeps everything in my HEAD + heart in motion. When you see him next, give him a high five because he really deserves it! He sacrificed a lot for me to be here, doing what I love.

My family means absolutely everything to me.

I think that if butter and salt didn’t exist, I too, would not exist, because what’s the point then?

I’m not much of a planner, more of a “fly by the seat of your pants” kinda gal.

My favorite thing to say and motto for life is, “we’ll figure it out” and really, we always do, one way or another!
