Today on The Lively Show I’m talking with Caitlin Wilson, of Caitlin Wilson Design and Caitlin Wilson Textiles.

Caitlin is a talented interior designer with a popular fabric, pillow, and rug line as well as a mom of three little ones living in Portland.

In this episode, we talk about how she manages her priorities with three little ones (one of which is just three weeks old!), a marriage, and her career.

In addition, we discuss how her relationship to social media has changed over the years, particularly now that she has children.

This episode is perfect for interior design buffs, moms juggling careers, or people looking to have a more balanced relationship with social media.






  • How Caitlin started her career in interior design and eventually landed her first clients.
  • How living abroad in London, Hong Kong, and Dubai influenced her design style and collections.
  • What Caitlin learned from traveling with a baby overseas for the first two years of being a mother.
  • How Caitlin manages her career and parenting priorities with three young children.
  • How being in a marriage with another ambitious person has benefitted Caitlin and her career.
  • What the move from Philly to Portland has meant for Caitlin and her family.
  • The new source of inspiration Caitlin is finding for her upcoming new textile collection.
  • How Caitlin handles social media and “keeping up” with everyone. (~25:30)
  • Why having children has changed Caitlin’s approach to social media and where she draws the line when it comes to sharing about her children online.
  • What Caitlin would tell someone just starting out on this journey.

    Loved hearing Caitlin’s take on social media. It’s easy to forget that we all have the choice to take a step back and decide how much or how little we want to share and in turn, how much we choose to take in. Such a simple thought really! Another great episode Jess.
