As a creative type, I get real nerdy real fast about colors and patterns and how they can tell a story or present a perspective. This can be a real plus when helping people make decisions that can seem daunting.
ensures the entire process is influenced by the client's needs in addition to their unique style perspective.
I studied fine art and design and have a M.A. in asking people open ended questions and assembling all that info into reports. There is a fancy name for it but more importantly that skill set coupled with my artistic background comes in handy when working with clients. Ensuring your needs get met is my way of finding your design story. We all want to live in spaces that speak to our own unique perspective and also be comfortable in the places in which we spend most of our
As long as I can remember, I have LOVED ART and artful (often functional) objects. I found an natural outlet
for my visual passions when I designed the complete remodel of my own home for my family. I went onto help others and found making spaces feel like the reflection of the people living in them is a true joy.
Finding creative design solutions with the an emphasis on function is my definition of
AND since I'm the mother of 3, I also understand the necessity of a strict budget. I love the challenge of making a project feel complete and personal within the reality of not being able to live in a reproduction of Oprah's guest house.

Color & Pattern

My initial consultation was a pleasure. Kim intuitively understands color and space as they relate to function for my family. She has taken an overwhelming job and broken it down for me making it fun and exciting. With her eye on my budget and my wish list I know I have found an interior designer I can trust to guide me through the building process. Thanks Kim!
I spent weeks carting home sample after sample of flooring, tile, paint, cabinets and pulls but the more I looked, the more confused I became with the myriad of choices. I called Kim to help me pull all the pieces together. Within 2 days of our initial meeting, Kim zeroed in on the perfect combination; blending old with new while still keeping the integrity and charm of our 1930's Bungalow. She went shopping with me and provided us with a 2-D vision of what the completed project would look like. Kim's enthusiasm to create a kitchen which is uniquely ours was infectious! Not only is her eye for design and her ability to see color amazing she is also a hardworking, trustworthy individual. Thank you Kim, you will definitely be involved when we move into the next phase of our remodel.
Kim is a natural at home design - she has such a great eye but also tons of experience to back up her talent and artistic skill. Kim's knowledge of home design goes far beyond just design but she also understands home construction and stages of home remodels so her recommendations are based on what is possible and what would be most effective. I highly recommend her!
Kim took the time to listen to what I liked and worked in our home as well as what I wanted to change. She has great ideas, vision & decisiveness while still being approachable & flexible. Kim's talents & excitement for my project were contagious helping me shift from ”analysis paralysis” to action. Thanks Kim!
Kim is so gifted in what she does. She has such an “eye” to put colors and decor and even furniture together to create a space that is individualized to fit what I wanted. She helped me redesign my office space for my counseling practice and designed a setting that is soothing, inviting and warm to help my clients feel safe and relaxed. She is such a joy to work with, and is so dedicated to finding the “just right” pillow or plant or basket to accessorize the space. Plus, she is very diligent about keeping within the budget, which is important when you own your own business. I highly recommend her to anyone I know and my clients have said nothing but amazing things about the change to my space. Thank you Kim!
