Katy has guided me through 2 large projects and I am more than thrilled with the results. She did a great job repurposing some of my existing furniture and coming up with great ideas and solutions that I had not previously considered. She has made my home more comfortable, functional and enjoyable. Great work!

We worked with Katy based on the recommendation of our property management company and are so happy to have found her!  We bought an oceanfront condo in Mission Beach that really needed updating.  Katy transformed our vacation home into a beautiful, classy and comfortable space.  We love the redesign!  Katy thought of every detail in terms of making the home comfortable and beautiful and really delivered a luxurious beach house.

Katy managed the process very well.  She was organized, positive and fun to work with.  She met the budget we had agreed on and delivered an exceptional result on a short timeline.  She worked with me to understand my preferences and what I was looking for in terms of style and functionality, then she did the legwork and brought us some great options to choose from.  I felt that I was involved enough to be part of the fun of choosing some of the main design elements, but Katy took care of everything behind the scenes and made many design decisions and furniture and decor choices on her own to create the overall look we were seeing.  We live abroad, so we communicated mostly via phone and online.  When we arrived for our summer vacation we walked into this amazing redesigned home.  Katy and her team did a fantastic job!

Katy also has a great network of service providers - painters, contractors, carpenters, etc.

I would highly recommend Katy and her team to anyone looking for a redesign - big or small.  While I feel that our vacation house reflects my style and taste, I could never have made it all come together so perfectly.  Her design expertise really made the difference!

Katy helped me do a complete remodel of a home in Del Mar. She was phenomenal at listening to my objectives and providing ideas and solutions in a very cost efficient manner. I like service providers like Katy who put their clients first and don’t try to push their vision onto you.
She worked seamlessly with my contractor and enabled me to spend less time overseeing the project. Everything was done on time and within budget. I have no hesitation recommending Katy to anyone.

Katy has quite simply changed my life for the better. I was amazed at how quickly she was able to come in and assess exactly what was need to turn my home into a comfortable, useable and stored space that I love coming home to. Before she even left I implemented some of her suggestions and found that everyday tasks like doing the laundry were so much easier. She really listened to what I was looking for and in a short amount of time created a custom design that we fell in love with. She provided us instant accessibility to colors and furnishing that fit our budget and style. My only regret is that I didn’t hire her years ago. I could have spent all those years loving my space.
