For over ten years I have worked with many different clients all over the Central New York area. Window treatments, furnishings, color choices and accessorizing is my specialty. Every client has been unique and very special in some way. Whether you have five kids and no time, you are an empty-nester looking to simplify, or just need a little change, we have no stipulations, price minimums or binding contracts. I love what I do and so does the team I work with.
If you are starting new, I am happy to sit with you and the builder and create a design concept and layout that works with your lifestyle, budget and taste. I have designed, help build and furnished commercial buildings and over 50 homes in the last ten years in the Central New York area.
Staging with Kate
I have always had a passion for design. From an early age while "antiquing" with my mother across the country, I was always imagining how to repurpose furniture and artifacts. I had various collections from sterling butter knives, white iron stone, amari, and unique glass stemmed sugar goblets that I use to this day for wine glasses!
I was able to put my skills to use as a sales associate and associate manager at Pottery Barn. While I have no formal training, I have an innate ability to understand a clients needs and taste. I love all design which allows me to be flexible with my craft and appreciate a clients taste. If I had to describe my style in a few words it would be a mix of old, new (traditional or modern) with a touch of organic, bringing in the outside! I love color but also appreciate monochromatic schemes. I could get lost in the beauty of wallpaper books and feel paper and natural wall coverings can enhance the beauty and interest of any room.
I am always shopping and looking for interesting pieces from unique sources all over the country. From antlers straight from the national elk refuge in Wyoming, to the French craftsman of the la forge francaise and their famously exquisite iron work! I love meeting other artists as their work inspires me daily! I would love the opportunity to meet with you and discuss what I can do to help bring your design project to life!
