I have the fortune of having met Kate personally, and am finding great joy in getting to know her. Aside from being beautiful inside and out, she is an amazingly gifted woman who is down-to-earth, has a fantastic sense of humor and is extremely well-rounded. She holds a Masters in Business Management, a Bachelor's in Psychology, as well as Certifications in Design. And if that wasn't enough, she's also served her country and is retired from the military.
Kate has a love for what she does, and it shows in her work. The upscale looks she creates are clean and elegant as her Design Portfolio shows.
In her words:
The redesigns I do in homes is essentially recycling, repurposing or up-cycling. I use what the homeowners already have to give their home a new look while updating their designs and maintaining their own personal style in the home. In some cases, I will bring in new items if the home needs it, but in most all my designs, at least one piece is given a new purpose or a new look.
Here are some examples for the upcycling/repurposing that Kate has done (click on the picture to go to her blog for more information on these projects):

And look at this master bedroom chandelier that was created using parts and pieces of broken chandeliers and a frame from a broken mirror!
I'm so impressed with Kate's vision and creative talent! I hope you take the time to check out her other projects on her blog, and if you have a space that needs some help, give her a call.
