I wholeheartedly recommend this brilliant designer. I hired Kathy to spruce up our main living and dining spaces as well as our wrap-around porch as we are getting married at our house later this year and wanted that “wow” factor when people stepped foot into our home. Kathy has impeccable taste and is extremely reliable. She is an absolute pleasure to work with and was instrumental in understanding the vibe we were going for and then taking it to a completely higher level! It was such an effortless process with zero stress attached.
Kathy was very communicative, keeps appointments, and is always on time, which I appreciated greatly. One of her many strengths is her sense of color and her ability to create a beautiful palette. She uses the right amount of pattern, color, and accents to create a palette that “pops” and flows well. I get compliments all the time on the spaces she designed for us.
10/10 recommend to anyone looking for an interior designer who brings creativity but designs spaces that fit YOU and your style. I could go on and on, but we will definitely be back as clients of home by red door! What Kathy has created in the many services she offers is truly something special.

I know how many boxes I’ve packed for past moves and not reopened for months…Had they magically disappeared, I’d have been just fine. This was my situation when I learned about home by red door. I called Kathy looking for some magic. She delivered organization which is even better.
Kathy sorted through all of it with focused kindness and discretion. Did she notice that I have far too many black blouses & dresses? Sure, but she calmly sorted them out creating my pack, store and remove (sell or donate) options. And those indispensable newspaper articles from 1998 that were in archival boxes in my offices? Sorted into keep, recycling and shred. We laughed about some things realizing which were truly important and which could move on.
What did I learn? I learned that it’s not all or nothing, I learned how to fold a fitted sheet (interesting, but unlikely to ever happen again). I realized that I didn’t have to completely Marie Kondo everything to make a big difference and that partnering on it with Kathy made it achievable. Mimosas were not required, but we’ll be toasting the renovation completion in a few months without using any magic at all to make unwanted stuff disappear.

Through both experiences she was so pragmatic, thoughtful, empathetic and patient. And wow!! She has an eye for designing the most effective use of space. Loved working with her and can’t wait for our next project. Loving simplifying my life and creating amazing spaces with her. Call her now. It will be the best thing you’ve done for yourself.

Kathy was amazing working with our daughter too in organizing all her clothes and closet. Hands down she’s the best!!!

We were preparing to list our home to sell, when we enlisted her help to organize our kitchen and prepare it for staging. Our kitchen is small, and it was always cluttered and as the heart of the home, it was frustrating at times trying to cook and bake for my family. She came in with a plan and a vision, and was able to maximize the kitchen space to its fullest potential. She was a delight to work with, my only regret was that I didn’t reach out to her SOONER!

Kathy has been helpful in recommending next steps and ideas for our office space which will help us maintain a more organized system for filing and getting rid of paper or unused items in this area of the house.

We also had spaces that we were not able to access due to typical aging challenges. Kathy took the time to help us prioritize where to start, focusing first on what would be the most impactful for us on a daily basis. She recognized we had a threshold for how long we could be on our feet and when we were mentally drained, and took care to ensure we had breaks and clear stopping points.
We first tackled the kitchen and were able to donate and recycle several items which cleared up space for what we use most. We also went through old spices, unused recipe books and plastic containers to declutter and create usable space. We now have a more effective and visually appealing kitchen that we are excited about using!

After a house move and renovations, the thought of decorating a room from scratch filled me with dread. Kathy knew just what to do. She was patient and started at the beginning to understand my style. From there she provided expert guidance and direction to keep the project on track. She was also very conscientious about the budget and always provided multiple options. She was thoughtful on where to spend and where to save. I appreciated how she also incorporated items that I already owned in order to save money and bought consignment/vintage to further stretch the budget.
Kathy truly took on the heavy lifting (literally!) to make the room come together. From the paint, to hardware, to furniture and accessories, it is now one of my favorite rooms in the house. I highly recommend Kathy for your interior decorating or home organizing project!

Kathy at home by red door transformed our living room into the most comfortable living space – better than we could have ever imagined. Having downsized, we were in a smaller space with unique challenges. We had never worked with a designer before, and she provided options that met our lifestyle and budget. The investment was well worth it, and we would highly recommend her to others. Her expertise clearly showed throughout the process and our experience working with her was effortless. Thank you, home by red door!

I had no idea how to make it work for my family. We wanted to use it as a multifunctional space but couldn’t figure out how to do it. I reached out to home by red door. Kathy came out and gave me her ideas and then a plan on how to make it work. I purged a lot of the items we no longer needed, and Kathy came back and went to work. She organized, cleaned and most importantly, made the garage functional! It’s so awesome! Everything has a home that makes sense, we have space for our gym, and we can now park both cars in the garage. I highly recommend Kathy and plan to use her again for other projects around my house.

Kathy, with home by red door, designed and decorated two rooms for us. We moved into an older, unconventional home. Kathy designed our family room, choosing uplifting colors and developed a vision that transformed the outdated room. I especially liked that she was able to incorporate much of my current decor and bought new pieces to create a modern look. We gather in and enjoy our family room every day.
Kathy also created the design for our loft, which was previously an outdated sitting room. She created an office and retreat with a sleeping area that I enjoy all the time. Kathy did everything from the design, picking out the paint, ordering all the furnishings and placing every piece in the space. She also brought in pieces from my childhood to make the loft extra special for me.

Kathy was such a professional. Not only did she help us organize our over-packed garage, but she also gave us great ideas for storage that saved us lots of money. Our goals of parking our cars in the garage along with room for a workout area were met. She was punctual and efficient. She finished our garage with time to spare so she looked at our pantry to give us product recommendations and ideas.
