Organic, Rustic Style Interior and The Blue Moon Trading Company

Katie Gagnon is the owner of The Blue Moon Trading Company, a designer and stylist with a penchant for organic pieces. Katie loves natural materials and this shows in her company's range of products, many of which she has enlisted artisans to work with materials such as re-purposed barn-wood, zinc and concrete to create her signature pieces. 

Blue Moon Trading Company based in Tampa, Florida, also offer a design service for their clients where Katie can advise on paint colours, upholstery and sourcing and placing of furniture. Katie has a unique style with a penchant for organic materials and as soon as I saw her Bay Shore project, I was smitten. Katie's eye for detail shows not only in her product design but also in her home styling. Her pieces have an organic, rustic charm and Katie cleverly combines classic and French style furniture with organic, to create her signature look.

 Below are a few of her unique pieces...


  1. I quite like this, the naturalness of it all, not sure i want a tree trunk in my room, but i do like the natural fabrics.

    1. It is definitely more suited to a beach or coastal home. I think the tree trunk table base is really clever. I don't think it would be so effective if it wasn't bleached and faded but the bleached, driftwood appearance looks fabulous. This is not a look that would suit every home or personality but I love it for its simplicity and the boldness in combining such opposites.
