Design With Intention
- Sandy C.
When we were entertaining the idea of a kitchen renovation I knew we would need expert advice due to the fact that our son is in a wheelchair and he enjoys cooking. We hired Kate to begin the journey of designing a handicap accessible kitchen that not only would be functional for my son but also beautiful to the eye. It was the smartest investment for this project. She came and watched how we live and operate in our kitchen so she could better access the needs of our whole family. We literally gutted the whole kitchen down to bare floors, moved walls and the island and made it completely barrier free. Kate heard all my concerns and needs and she more than met them. Her warmth of personality combined with her honesty of how something may or may not work is so refreshing. She always had a solution and she made sure it was 100% what I would be happy with. The end result has been absolutely perfect. I can’t think of one thing that I would change or wish I would have done differently. The whole thing was a complete success and the most beautiful kitchen ever!
I’ve worked with Kate a few times over the past two years. She is super talented, has an amazing sense of style and a very good eye for design. She is also very professional and solutions-oriented. Kate was able to help me quickly arrive to decisions - saving me a ton of time and stress. She has also provided me with solutions that I never would’ve thought of...solutions that saved me money.
Kate helped my wife and I redesign our kitchen. We needed an expert to make sure we captured style and function all together. The project was completed just this week and it looks fabulous. Kate was available and involved through the whole process talking with both my wife and our contractor. This was really big project with moving walls, doors, windows, cabinet replacement, flooring etc...….We would highly recommend Kate and will use her again when we renovate our master bath.
Working with Kate on this job was one of the most pleasant kitchen remodels I’ve completed. She is very detailed oriented, and organized. All of this while designing with the customer. If you are wanting to remodel in your home and drop peoples jaws at the completed project, Kate is who you should call.
The idea of an interior designer always seemed indulgent to me. I know what I like and don’t like, and I have my own interests in art and design and creating a home with pretty things. However, I found myself feeling stuck in lots of places in our home where I didn’t know how to put my ideas into reality. Kate has truly changed our home in amazing ways from including designing an awesome built-in that spreads across two rooms, to helping design a complete addition/renovation. Kate has help change the feel of our home to be a better, more inspiration and organized living space!
If you are interested in, or even the slightest bit curious about, interior design services call Kate. I was lucky enough to meet Kate last summer after having moved into a new house. I was clueless about interior design, if it was up to my husband and I our house would still look like a dorm room! After chatting with Kate we hired her to design our living room. She was super easy and fun to work with, she incorporated my ideas and wishes for the room design with her own incredibly unique ideas and the room turned out better than I could have ever imagined. She made a potentially complicated and overwhelming process very manageable and enjoyable. She is truly awesome and I highly recommend her!
To be honest we were a little hesitant to hire an interior designer but had been unhappy with the layout of our long and thin living room since we moved. I learned about Kate and she came over for a consultation. Needless to say we hired her and couldn’t be more glad we did. Our living room looks fantastic and is very functional (with two kids) at the same time.If you are looking to freshen up the decor in a room or in your entire house, give Kate a try. She is friendly and easy to work with.
First of all (and this is a good thing!) Kate is not your mom’s Interior Designer. She is intuitive, Creative to the max, friendly, open and insightful. She doesn’t “know best” but instead encourages the client to explore how they would like their space to feel and function. Kate listens well and is a quick study to the client’s overall personality and what that means to designing the space.We felt that her services have a great ROI (in strictly financial terms); however the best gift is her ability to make your space a home.
Kate was fantastic! We were thinking of a kitchen remodel and sat down with Kate and we knew right away that she just got us. We love our kitchen now - she took it way beyond anything we could have done on our own. We loved it so much that we hired Kate again for our basement remodel. She worked with us a lot ahead of time to make sure we got all the functions we wanted to fit into our small space and once again she hit it out of the park. It is fabulous!
Kate knows her clients!!! Due to personal circumstances, I needed to do the vast majority of my consultation work with Kate long-distance. While working by phone, FaceTime, and email, she was able to capture and understand my personality, needs, interests, and living environment preferences. I sensed this during our meetings, but it was clear when her recommendations (4000 sq ft interior paint and a few rooms of furniture/furnishing selection and placement) were implemented. It’s one thing to be a personable and engaging individual - which she also is! - but it’s essential to be able to learn your client if you plan to deliver for superior client services - which she obviously does both in my experience!
We really loved the eDesign package, decorating ideas and how Kate put the room together with furniture, accessories and color scheme. She is great at summarizing our needs and taking the guesswork out of decorating a room!
My kitchen is the favorite thing about our house
My husband and I were building our house from the ground up in Alaska! Such a project is very intimidating considering our limited experience. We wanted a simple yet stylish design. Kate provided fun and interesting solutions for our unique floor plan as well as creative uses of materials and surfaces. She helped us keep the larger picture in focus as we explored the details. Kate knows design and helped us accomplish…a rustic yet chic, cozy and contemporary space.
Our experience with Kate was amazing! We recently worked with her in for a Designer in a Day package, and we’re already planning on working with her again in the future. Kate was 1) so fun, and 2) SO TALENTEDShe spent time to get to know us and truly reflected our personalities into our home. Within a few hours, she helped us develop a vision for key rooms, and we’re still talking at length about how great the experience was. Her work will transform our home into what we always dreamed of and wanted. I can’t recommend her enough - thank you, Kate!
Kate was absolutely wonderful to work with! She helped us transform a kitchen that was outdated and not very functional into one that we now love — it is open, warm, welcoming, modern, and totally functional. Kate understood that we wanted a kitchen that would fit well in our 1926 house but would also have modern touches, and she did wonders with our very our small space. She was also a delight to work with personally. I can’t recommend her more highly!
My home felt so disjointed it was stressing me out. We had kid toys on every shelf, and even when we tidied it never felt put together. I knew I needed help, but I wanted a designer that would embrace my casual, down-to-earth, practical style. Kate was perfect for us! She took the time to get to know our family, how we live day to day, and how we wanted our home to make us feel...relaxed, comfortable, and inviting. And what we got was just that!We love our new living area so much that we hired Kate do our master bedroom, too! It’s great to finally feel relaxed in my own home. We would hire Kate again in a minute!
Kate was able to perfectly capture my vision but with her own beautiful twist. The final product was more than I could have hoped for. Kate and her team were professional, delivered on time and, most importantly, a joy to work with. I am already dreaming up my next project with her and her team!
