My approach to interior design is influenced by my experience in fashion design. I equate a room with a stunning outfit. The furniture foundation, like a suit, should be lasting, and the accessories, like the jewelry, should be on-trend to give the room its personality. I do not use a cookie cutter approach. I do not re-source products that I have specified for someone else in your town.
As your designer, I will work with you to bring out your personal style. Although my “look” leans toward transitional, I have worked with many design influences from old world antiques to post modern vibe. I believe that good design should not be driven by fads. Conversely, it should never be taken too seriously. A balanced mix of traditional and contemporary pieces makes a room vibrant and I strive to find one unique piece that brings it all together.
My style is evolving as I work with different people. It is important to me that I discover your style rather than treat your space as my personal showroom.
"Kate is a wonderful designer and a class act in every sense of the word. After raising our family in Texas, my husband accepted a position in Boston. We purchased a home under construction, and were so lucky to find Kate. She helped us every step of the way, from making the selections for our builder, to choosing a color scheme, furniture and accessories. We changed our look for this house, and Kate was instrumental in making our wishes a reality. We have built several custom homes over the years, and this was the least stressful project I’ve ever done. Kate deserves the credit for that. In addition to all of her design talent and skills, she is organized, thoughtful, punctual, and joyful! She is very flexible and doesn’t push a certain style or look. Rather she took the time to understand what we wanted (as best we could explain it) and then added her impeccable style and flair to make it gorgeous and just what we wanted. She has an amazing talent for choosing the right colors to achieve the result we desired. I loved every minute working with her, and we love our home. We recommend Kate without hesitation." Susan T.

"Working with Kate MacPherson was a pleasure. My husband and I wanted to update our kitchen and she helped us immeasurably. We had some ideas of our own yet her insight and design experience only enhanced our vision. In addition, she added several great improvements that we never would have dreamed of doing. Kate brings a wealth of creativity and knowledge to the table. Her sense of style is fantastic! Kate has an incredible eye for blending colors and neutrals and her sense of space, function and design are second to none. Kate made the process fun and stress free. She is professional in every sense of the word. We were absolutely delighted with our finished product! I highly recommend Kate for any large or small job you may have in your home or office.
