"Kate did a wonderful job identifying our tastes and style, then incorporating those into our projects. I really appreciate how she listened and took the time to understand not only our lifestyle but also how we wanted to use the spaces she designed for us. She has a fabulous sense of color and proportion; we were blown away by her vision and ideas. Just a joy to work with, she made the process effortless and fun. Thank you so much Kate!"

"It was a pleasure working with Kate—it was the best decision I ever made.  We were working with an architect on our new home, and Kate was a valuable partner who filled the gap between architect and builder.  She was able to help me decide where to place furniture in the new house before construction began so that we could make any needed adjustments to the floor plans.

Kate helped me blend our antique furniture with contemporary pieces for the modern look and feel we wanted for our new home. Kate has a great eye and really cares about helping her clients achieve the look they want.  She always had my paint colors, tile samples, and swatches in her basket, so we could choose what we needed, keeping with the architecture and to ensure that styles were consistent and colors flowed beautifully throughout the house.

Not only is Kate a talented designer, she is fun to work with—always upbeat and positive.  She kept track of the budget, looked for ways I could save, and helped me decide which things were worth going over budget to get.  I still call Kate to come by and have a look when my house needs a little boost, and she gives me ideas for small changes with a big impact.  Thank you for everything, Kate!"

"Working with Kate has been such a fulfilling experience.  Kate and I discussed my ideas and with her knowledge and experience, she made it come to life...literally to the last detail.  Her attention to detail is exceptional. She truly thinks of everything...those little details that make a room or home feel "finished".  She also presented ideas and concepts that made me go out of my comfort zone and I was thrilled.  She is able to combine traditional and ccontemporary in a way that makes my home feel balanced."

"Working with Kate from Kate Abt Design has been a truly exciting and wonderful experience.  Kates superb sense of style and knowledge is visible in everything she creates.   From the beginning Kate incorporated my taste and ideas into the process.  She also showed me new styles and trends and which ones would be a lovely addition to the space.  The result was not only a beautiful room but one that made me feel at home.  Kate is always positive and kind and I enjoyed every moment that I spent with her. She shows up prepared with fabric, tiles, and paint samples, so that we were sure our decision would work.  I am grateful for the way she approached every challenge, helping me enjoy the building process. Kate has a wonderful eye for the detail and it was amazing how happy I was as each room was completed and I loved everything, the way the room looked and the way it made me feel.  Kate has respect for the budget, never compromising style, helping me know where to spend and where to save.  I found it easy to trust her insight to produce something really special.  I recommend Kate to everyone and they'll love her as much as I do."

"Wow, I am not sure where or how to begin to explain the depth of gratitude we owe to Kate.  We tackled a total home renovation and Kate was with us from the very beginning.  Kate assisted in every aspect from electrical and lighting layouts to space planning, from flooring and paint colors to furniture placement and interior decorating. Her taste is exquisite. It is such a sense of confidence when faced with so many decisions having Kate there to give her honest and professional opinions.  Kate is a truly knowledgeable designer and knew exactly the vision we had.  Our furnishings are almost complete and what a comfortable, inviting and welcoming home she has created for us.  It is better than we dreamed it would be!"
