hello & welcome

I’m Carrie Koehmstedt, the owner & designer of Carrie Loves Design Studio.

I started out blogging on a Blogspot blog in the Spring of 2006 (Carrie & the Koehmstedts) as as a way to keep in touch with my family in California. I quickly began designing and re-designing my own blog and in the process discovered I really enjoyed the creative process of customizing a website. I have always had a creative soul but never would have thought that I would call myself a website designer, be running my own business, and working with wonderfully talented people from all corners of the world!

I am so happy I get to do something that I truly enjoy – helping authors, creatives, and self-starters like yourself make your slice of the internet look & feel as special as you!

Why WordPress?

I specialize in designing websites for self-hosted WordPress.org sites. Technology grows and changes rapidly, day-to-day, and the world of WordPress is no different. I’ve worked with many themes, created child themes, and yes I do have my favorites!

More often than not a WordPress website would work for you & your brand!  Please feel free to contact me any time with questions you have (or a quote) regarding your design project.

"41% of the web uses WordPress, from hobby blogs to the biggest news sites online."

My Studio

I work from my home in a small town south east of Raleigh, NC. Whether you’re a local and we can chat at the coffee shop, somewhere across the USA, or even on another continent we can hop on a Zoom call and talk about what you need – I’m here to help you succeed!

I work with creatives both established & just getting started, and I know you fit in there somewhere! Take a look at some of the reviews I have received over the years. Ready to get started?
