My Philosophy

My team and I approach the design process by creating unique custom concepts for our clients’ that fit their lives and reflect their personal style. We offer full design, construction and project management services. We achieve a successful installation by offering and implementing our specialized design process with built-ins and custom furniture options. In addition, we offer a complete drapery workroom with a full array of fabric selections that are current with the industry.

We provide clients with the highest level of service for all design or remodeling projects while keeping your project on time and on budget.

Working with a design professional can take the uncertainty and stress out of planning a remodel project. Consider your designer a partner who can envision and prepare for possibilities that won’t occur to you and manage dozens of technical details. If the countless door styles, fabrics, and hardware choices seem overwhelming, imagine how the load increases when you add measurements, ordering and installation into the picture.

CLIENT TESTIMONIALS

Kathleen has been working with me for the past seven months decorating my new home. She has listened carefully to my needs, helped me think things through in ways I wouldn’t have and added her own refinement. I love the whimsical touches in every room and her extraordinary fabric selection. Kathleen was always prompt and responsive to my needs and a joy to work with.

Patricia S, Rochester

Kathleen has renovated my kitchen, two bathrooms, and my office. For each project she has been nothing but professional, organized and attentive to quality and beauty. She works with a team of crafts people that strive for excellence and Kathleen has an active role in each project from beginning to end. I would not hesitate to call on her again for her skill, I just need to find more rooms!

STEVE C., Rochester

Ours was a small kitchen project — about $25,000 — with a number of moving parts. Kathleen treated the small project like a large project; once engaged, she moved everything along on schedule, ensuring that appropriate materials were selected, and that workmen were scheduled in the proper sequence — and actually showed up. Kathleen was repeatedly on site, ensuring that the work was going as planned, and that we were satisfied. Moreover, she returned our phone calls and texts promptly, even while on vacation. “Change orders” that included a new bathroom floor and office window treatments were taken in stride, and accomplished timely and professionally. And while we had a very good idea exactly what we wanted to do with our project, Kathleen made a number of experience-based suggestions that we readily accepted, and that materially improved the final product.

Marie & Gary, Rochester

Kathleen and her staff are professional to a tee. When it all came together, Kathleen’s color coordination and the accents she personally shopped for, were above and beyond what I was hoping. Her ideas were very intuitive to the flow of my home and the look I was trying to achieve. She takes the time to get to know and understand her client. I will definitely be using Kathleen for all future designing.
