With decades of residential construction experience, whether a simple bathroom update, a kitchen expansion or remodel, or a new-build home, The Interior Design Group by Kathleen can accommodate any size project from start to finish.

IDG has a fine-tuned process to stay on a strict construction schedule for all projects. Our clients are aware of the start and completion date of all projects and all contractors are solely dedicated and accountable to your project.

All financial aspects of the project are extremely organized utilizing financial statements which reflect the initial estimate, any changes made to the project and states all payments made and balances due. Lastly, our project approvals indicate a firm payment schedule to eliminate any final surprises.

Each new client is provided with a customized IDG folder that outlines every aspect of the project from the design process schedule, to an outline of your selections to your financial documents.  Throughout your entire “active” home project, Kathleen is available for all daily communications and consultations addressing any needs, changes or concerns.

Quality workmanship is the cornerstone of our philosophy. After apprenticing under Master craftswoman Stella Staccone, Kathleen and Stella created drapery for 100s of house including custom homes in New York, New York, Atlanta, Georgia and Boca Raton, Florida. Together they were featured in National publications such as the New York Times and Metropolitan Home. Kathleen has since created a renowned Drapery and Upholstery studio comprised of only top textile artisans. Not only does IDG provide custom handmade textiles for their clients, but is considered an industry resource throughout the area for other Interior Design firms and builders. Textile services include Draperies, Valances, Shades, Swags & Cascades, Sheers, Table covers, Bedspreads, Duvets, Pillow Shams, Dust ruffles/Bed skirts, Headboards & Bolsters, Throw pillows of every size and shape, and Upholstery. From the fabric to the lining, to the trim details, every window treatment is constructed using time-honored old world craftsmanship to 1/8″ tolerances. Installation being the final crucial element of every drapery fabrication, we only use highly trained, experienced professional installers.


Home staging is the art of making a home look polished, stylish and inviting to a potential buyer. It is the essential first step in selling your home. IDG will help you discover where the problems and solutions are for your home staging needs. It may be anything from a little closet thinning and tidying up to a major furniture and design overhaul. We will apply simple, effective techniques to help a home stand out amongst the crowd. When staging is successful, a home will leave a lasting impression on the buyers and they will feel they can make your house their home. Staging can include accessorizing, rearranging furniture and streamlining the overall home design. Together, we will reach the common objective of selling your home at the best market value.

Designing interior spaces of log cabin homes, utilizes finishes that reflect the natural surroundings of the home. The design, furnishing and accessories incorporate the essence of nature through natural materials and exemplifies the true beauty of the structure.

Nothing customizes a room more than custom designed furniture. Each piece is specifically designed to meet the function and aesthetics of the intended space and use. This includes the size, scale and proportion of the piece along with the selected wood species, stain, color and applied accessories. Some examples of custom wood selections include: Wenge, Acacia, Tiger Maple, Quarter-Sawn Oak, Curly Maple and Cherry. Each unique piece is hand drawn, refined to your style, built by local craftsman/artisans and finished with the highest quality level of professionalism.

Developing a balanced color scheme that is suitable for the style of your home, considers the selection of textiles, pattern, color and your personal style. Color is one of the most important elements in the overall design and is crucial in uniting all the design elements.
