Motifs for the Home Store Interior

Services We Provide

Design Consultation

We are not interior designers, but we have an eye for putting rooms together. If you are redesigning a room or looking to refresh a space, let us help you. We come to your home, bringing some pieces of furniture you have expressed interest in, and help you put the room together. It may be as simple as rearranging your furniture for better flow or adding accent pieces. We truly enjoy helping you fall in love with your space.

Baby Registry

Oh how we love baby stuff! We don’t have a complete baby department, yet…However, we can put together a great registry of items you are going to want for your new little bundle of joy. All brands have been tested by our owner with her little one and most of our clothing is organic and made in the USA.

Of course, we gift wrap for free and if at the end there are still things you need to complete your baby shopping, enjoy a one-time 20% off discount.

Bridal Registry

Congratulations you are getting married! Time to start your home together and what better way than with unique custom touches. We carry linens, towels, dishes and many other great pieces to help start your new life together. We have you and your significant other set up a time. At your appointment, we will enjoy a few drinks and appetizers, while discussing every room in your home to help you pick what you need.

We keep detailed records so that you won’t receive the same gift twice. Plus, we gift wrap for free to make it easier on your guests. Finally, after the wedding come back in and pick anything up you still want off your registry and receive 20% off.

Please note, we don’t carry everything you may need for the kitchen, but we suggest our good friends at Pizazz to help fulfill your kitchen needs.

History

Motifs was started in late 1997 by Karin and Mark Striepe. When it originally opened, it had an emphasis in home décor and beautiful bed linens. In early 2014, Kattie Meyer approached the owners with the dream of purchasing the store from them. At that time, Motifs had expanded to much more than just a home décor and linen store. It was carrying crystal, jewelry, bath, stationery and many other unique gifts.

After months of working out the details in May 2014, Kattie began putting her own personal touches on her store, Motifs. It is her dream to continue the evolution but to not lose the roots of the business. Motifs still carries great furniture and beautiful bed linens, but is expanding the baby, jewelry and gift departments. The focus will always be on the customer and their wishes of what they would like to see in the store.

Owner Profile

Kattie Meyer

My journey to this point has been an interesting one, but I wouldn’t change a thing. And I feel so very blessed to be living my dream. I was born and raised right here in Great Falls. After high school, I headed east and went to school in the Twin Cities at the College of St. Catherine. After graduation, I stayed in Minneapolis working as a private event coordinator for Rock Bottom Brewery. Upon moving home, I was able to work for the C.M. Russell Museum in their marketing department before going to work as the General Manager for the Great Falls Voyagers. I was one of only four female General Managers in all of minor league baseball, which consisted of 160 teams.

Motifs had been owned for seventeen years by Karin and Mark Striepe. I came to be friends with Karin and knew she might be looking for someone to buy her business, so I went out on a limb and approached her. Roughly four months later, I was the proud owner of Motifs. I am in the store most of the time, so please take the time to introduce yourself, I hope we can become dear friends and Motifs becomes your first thought when it comes to gift giving and home decorating.

At the end of my blog posts you will see “Tink! Tink!” which is what my husband and I do instead of cheers. I hope when you shop or read my posts, you will feel like part of my family and this is my way of raising a glass and wishing you well.
