Kind words from our clients
"Kathryn was such a delight to work with! We were new to the state and also first-time parents and just couldn't find the time or energy to decorate and furnish our home as we wanted. Cue our search for a professional (we had no idea what to expect as this was our first time) to help us obtain the look and feel we wanted as well as stay within budget. Kathryn was the first we contacted and after some preliminary paperwork/questionnaire and our initial complementary consultation, we knew we had made the right choice. Kathryn's DIY Package made the process so fun and simple and helps make the client feel less overwhelmed about their project. Kathryn put everything together in a beautiful visual presentation for us and we are free to implement at our own pace. Also, her A-La Carte option is awesome should you start to feel unsure after you've begun to implement her design and could use a litttle extra guidance and professional eye. We will hire her again for future homes and cannot recommend her enough!"
"Kathryn is super talented and professional. She has a fun loving personality and the energy that goes with that and it shows in everything she does. She is very flexible and was willing to meet with us after 5 pm when needed. If you would like to get a better idea of her work be sure to check her out her website, Instagram and/or Facebook. Kathryn is willing to work with her clients to get the right package based on their needs. She was affordable and created a priority list based on our needs, which she included in our contract. She was able to give us a good layout for four rooms in our house and gave us multiple options for each item to choose from at varying price ranges and at the proper dimensions to go with the size of our home. Thus far, we have bought a new dining room table with accompanying chairs, rug for dining room and an entry way table based on her plan. We have recently purchased two slipcover, swivel chairs for our living room to go with our existing couch. With the plan she prepared for us we are able to purchase the furniture and or fixtures we need as we go and have the paint colors on hand for when we decide to paint the rooms."
"Kathryn has taken a worn out kitchen and home (after our 5 boys - have beat it to a pulp) and created a huge lived in space that Rivals any Magazine design - It was a privilege to see her in action. She handled herself professionally and with great joy... and met all the needs and desires we could have ever wanted and worked within our budget. We not only have a large family - but we have lots of guests and events in our home - and the new space is not only beautiful, but functions for large crowds. Kathryn was practical - created a beautiful design and space and sensitive to our budget. You should have seen her in action when all the contractors were meeting with her - she honored them, made suggestions which they agreed with, and in turn they respected and represented her ideas with joy. All the contractors totally enjoyed working with Kathryn. If you want to see the space - have Kathryn call us and we would be happy to show you the awesome Kathryn LeMaster design. Thanks Kathryn - we love you"
"Kathryn J LeMaster's interior design for my 2400 sq. ft home was spot on. She provided a plan that incorporated new looks with family heirlooms. The end result is a cohesive, tasteful and comfortable home I will enjoy for many years. Her fabric and furniture choices compliment my personality and lifestyle perfectly. She listened to my wants and provided options beyond my expectations. She came in under budget and was always friendly, professional, and respectful. She worked closely with my contractor, the seamstress and other subs and vendors to ensure the vision for my home was meet. If Houzz readers are looking for an experienced, hard working designer, they should call Kathryn, She is the best!"
"Kathryn J. LeMaster Art and Design is an excellent business. Kathryn LeMaster is an extremely talented designer who is very easy to work with. She has an open mind and wonderful and creative ideas. Kathryn really wants the design to reflect you and does a great job of figuring out what that is. As far as the business side, she does great research, keeps in close contact and always does what she says she is going to do. I would recommend her for any job and will be using her again in the future. Her work is wonderful! She has done a kitchen redesign for me which includes fabrics, rugs, art, decor, furniture, sink, cabinetry finish and hardware, lighting and backsplash."
"We highly recommend Kathryn. She listened to us as her clients and executed ideas based upon our design style. We had bought a new house and asked her to help us furnish, design, and style It. We appreciated her detailed drawings and ability to "show" us the vision and plan. She is quick to respond and allows for flexibility based upon timeline needs. Once deciding together on budget, she works toward that goal. She is a lot of fun to work with!"
"We found Kathryn on Houzz and contacted her because she offered so many design package options, including a DIY package, which is what we wanted. When she came to our home, we instantly knew she was THE designer we wanted to work with. Kathryn has such a warm and inviting demeanor and is so easy to work with. Her designs were exactly on the mark – she saw our vision just by asking a few questions and walking through our home! She also has an amazingly organized system and communicates very well. Not only did she bring great designs and samples, she gave us a digital shopping list with links to all the items in her designs! We are blessed to have found someone as talented and kind as Kathryn."
"Kathryn and I met online, and began working on my project for a couple of months before meeting in person. I was amazed by how well and efficiently she could plan out and design my new empty apartment from just photos and skype calls. I went the e-design way, and after taking room measurements, Kathryn produced full details plans of the room, including a shopping list fitting in to the budget. Furnishing 4 rooms at once was huge for me, but Kathryn is a pro at efficiency, technology (made mock up photos of my rooms filled with the furniture we chose), punctuality - fast and always on time, and an awesome communicator. Most of all, the sweetest person to work with! Not only that - she happened to be in New York at the time a few furniture deliveries came, and helped build and place the items. All in all a great service, and highly recommend A+++"
"Kathyrn was GREAT...professional but not stuffy, listened to what I wanted, stuck to the time table and finished under the estimate! I was really impressed with her project presentation. I went with her DIY route, and she made it very easy for me to put together the rooms using what she picked out or using it as inspiration and finding my own pieces. It was obvious that she really paid attention to our style and my seemingly inane ramblings of what I was looking for. Sometimes I wasn't even sure what I wanted, but she managed to nail it. Highly recommend and would definitely call her again."
"Not only is Kathryn a great interior designer but also she is very easy to work with. She recently helped me complete the design for an entryway and powder room that she had previously designed. As some key elements had changed, she incorporated in the new features and listened to my concerns about existing trouble areas. She is responsive in replying to emails, client suggestions and questions and is clear about managing the project time line. She delivered according to the agreed upon budget and guidelines and supplied plans, images and sourcing details which are very helpful. I am very happy with her creative input and suggestions."
"We bought our first fixer upper and found ourselves drowning in great ideas, layouts, and colors. We were indecisive and nervous about making mistakes. We were immediately attracted to Kathryn J. LeMaster's design page and contacted her. Kathryn was very professional in her communication with us. The process was simple and enjoyable. Her expertise in space planning and color selection was very helpful for a project in which we were having a hard time making decisions. She was able to create a plan for us from the mess of ideas we sent to her using our ideabook. Overall, she relieved a ton of stress and now we are able to get started on our project!"
"It is a delight to work with Kathryn LeMaster. She is a good listener who has been able to help us transition into a smaller home while still keeping the essence of our family intact."
"My husband and I decided to update our house focusing on the kitchen and bathrooms. We were so impressed from the beginning with Kathryn! She was easy to work with and took our vision and made it all come together! She was extremely professional and we highly recommend her. Thanks Kathryn!! We couldn't be happier!!!"
"Kathryn assisted me in styling and accessorizing our new home. She nailed my design ideas and style based on the questionnaire and my comments. I was amazed at how she was able to match my style exactly! It would have taken me years to accomplish what she accomplished in one day. I would highly recommend her and look forward to working with her again in the future."
PRESIDENT/CEO, FFO HOME
"I have been doing business with Kathryn for several years, where she had played an integral role to enhance the quality and appeal of the visual impact of our furniture in TV commercial s. She independently picks products that perfectly match each commercial. She is also an absolute pleasure to work with. She is flexible when needed, and always has a positive disposition."
"We asked Kathryn to create sets for a food shoot with multiple items. She created sets with for each dish and had them passed them off with the client who was out of town. She was extremely organized and methodical about how she purchased and approved each set. Not only was her work exceptional, her presence made the client feel at ease."
KEITH & ANN S.
"After living in our home for 17 years we decided it was time to update the main living areas of our house. We searched through various websites and talked with friends and neighbors for recommendations of decorators. After viewing the Houzz website and looking at a number of decorators, we saw Kathryn J. LeMaster’s Art and Design presentation. I sent a request to her briefly outlining my objectives and immediately received a response. She scheduled a meeting to measure, take pictures and make notes and said that she would get back with us soon. Within a day or two, she sent numerous pictures and ideas. We were able to communicate easily on the Houzz site she helped me set up. When she came with her plan, I was amazed that she was so thorough with her presentation. She took the ideas that I had sent her and expanded them in very creative and agreeable way. She wanted us to be thrilled and more than met our expectations. Her artistic eye and ability to listen and communicate enhanced our working relationship. She articulated her ideas but always made sure that we were happy. Her mantra, “You won’t make me mad if you disagree with an idea” relieved any stress that might have occurred. She is an extraordinarily gifted and precise business woman who gives you detailed, written descriptions of her time and expenses. There were no surprises. As one who is very picky, I can, without reservation, highly recommend Kathryn LeMaster to professionally help with any design or decoration project you might have."
