Kathy comes to you

Kathy is an award-winning interior designer and is equipped to help you determine the products and design that work best for you within the colors and lighting of your surroundings. Since meetings take place in your home or office, she’ll work with you to help visualize a design solution that aligns with your individual style. Her personalized approach ensures that everything she recommends will fit perfectly within your existing furnishings and space.

Initial consultation

We know every project presents its own unique set of circumstances. After an initial phone conversation to discuss the basics of your project, Kathy will set up an initial design consultation at your home. She will take the time necessary to help establish the scope of your project and the style you desire. Most of our clients spend time making their homes neat and tidy but we would appreciate seeing your home or business in its natural state. Our interior designer will be interested in seeing any problem areas you need addressed such as storage or traffic flow. We will be interested in everything!

What to expect

Our first appointment will last about an hour as Kathy gets to know you and assess your lifestyle and design taste. She will be asking questions to find out how you use your space, and who lives in the home. At this first meeting we will get to know each other and you will have the opportunity to ask questions, discuss the timeline and budget, and talk about your expectations. We will set up a second appointment, usually in two to three weeks, which gives our designer time to create a design plan, pull together the products for your home, and create a design presentation. On our next meeting we will present a variety of design and product options all personalized for you. We will work with you from the idea stage all the way through delivery and installation.

The budget

People are often shy to discuss a budget but for both parties it is by far one of the most important aspects of your initial consultation. You may not know how much things cost and we can work with you to determine a budget that accomplishes your overall project goals. You may choose to work on one room at a time or the entire home. The investment in your home will determine the products your interior decorator can include in the project. Fortunately, we have a vast array of products at different price points to help fit in your budget.
