I am so excited with the results. Catherine provided practical ideas for rearranging my favorite space using my own favorite pieces. She shared her keen eye for colors and patterns that suit my tastes and was extremely resourceful finding very pleasing new pieces within my budget. Catherines professionalism and genuineness in listening to my needs and style preferences made for a remarkably pleasant experience. So, in addition to our primary living space, I asked Catherine to help me with bathroom tile selections. During both redesign projects, Catherine honored my budget and exceeded my expectations for making my home, my sanctuary. I give Catherine two thumbs up. She and her team work very hard to please her clients. She will make your home stylish beyond your expectations.
Catherine did a whole house renovation, as a recently purchased house was stuck in the 50’s. She picked fantastic colors in each room, instead of the boring white I was going to choose. One of the best compliments from visitors to our house is how great the colors are in each room and how warm and inviting our home is all because of Catherine. She has great taste and knows how to stay within budget. Anyone can see her passion and flair for design and expertise in color. Catherine also chose artwork and picked furniture pieces which worked so well with the paint colors. I get many compliments. One of the best things is that she was able to use much of the existing furniture because the budget was tight, but she added a few new pieces that expertly complemented what we already had. Anyone can spend tens of thousands to make a room look good Catherines skill is that she can work within your budget, but make the room look like you spent tens of thousands!! She also picked all of the tile for the bathroomsand even made a special trip to one of her personal suppliers to pick out some unique tiles for the master bath. Her choice in tiles was perfect and so well matched, a timeless design for years to come. I hired her again when I was renovating my kitchen. Instead of getting new cabinets, which would have cost a bundle she gave me the idea to add trim and paint the cabinets-which worked great. She even went to the granite yard to pick out the slab with me and recommended her granite guy for the install which was flawless. A house is not a home until Catherine puts her energy, touch and skills into it. She is fantastic at what she does, is easy to work with and can handle any project big or small. I would highly recommend her. If you hire someone else, you are making a mistake.
Catherine's strength is color and she's fun to work with because she's a skilled listener. I asked her to redesign my entry/ livingroom/diningroom to feel like a well-lived-in home by the sea, the focal point being a recently-acquired new seascape on canvas. I loved the colors and wanted to blend the artwork and a few family antiques with newer, transitional furniture; the style should be relaxed classic - never beachy. Since the space comprises small rooms, Catherine pulled color from the artwork to create flow, changing the wall color to a soft hue to punch up newly-installed crown and fresh white woodwork. She painted a large old cupboard in a deep nautical blue to display an inherited collection of white Ironstone china and added fresh pops of contrasting fabric in curtains, pillows and throws. And to my total surprise, she complimented my large seascape with smaller pieces of artwork, all within the set budget. I am totally delighted with the results! Catherine not only "got my vision" - she enhanced it. I've recommended Catherine to friends and family and look forward to working with her again.Kudos to Catherine!
Catherine did an awesome job on our main floor. She had amazing ideas and worked within our budget nicely. Her sense of color with the artwork she chose was magnificent. She really listened to our passions and chose artwork that was reflective of some of our past travels. Thank you, Catherine
Catherine was recommended to us by a friend for re-decorating and home staging. We are extremely happy with the results. We almost reconsidered selling our home and staying there. Our home was on the water and in great need of a designer's eye before putting on the market. Catherine understood how a buyer would feel upon entering our home. I am a sailor and she emphasized the nautical theme with colors and artwork. Although our home was in a good location, with great views, it needed help. She chose new paint colors which gave an immediate improvement. Then she staged the livingroom and bedrooms using some of the things we already had. She also shopped for new furnishings like bedding, pillows, artwork and plants. Needless to say, our house sold very quickly for more than I expected and I have hired her again to decorate our new home and told our friends about her. Thank you Catherine, we are impressed!
Catherine is incredible! She really listens and picks up on the style you are going for. I would totally use her again!
