Chelsea helped me through my remodel. Kitchen, bathrooms, whole house, paint colors, flooring, carpet, light fixtures, backsplash, and even window treatments. There are so many decisions to make, I recommend having an expert to help you make the right ones. Chelsea has an amazing eye for color and design. I am terrible with colors and decorating so I explained to her what I wanted and she helped me achieve fabulous results. I love my remodeled home. Thank you Chelsea!
Chelsea is extremely professional in her work and her experience in both interior design and construction makes her a well rounded professional. Chelsea focused on the clients wants and needs and customizes each project to deliver the best results.
I have worked with Chelsea on several occasions and she is definitely one of the most attentive interior designers I have met. Chelsea really takes the time to listen and incorporate the interests and character of her clients into her planning and as a result she is able to create interiors that are unique and personalized.
Chelsea is a pro. She came into our space and after only moments of consideration, she had 3 ideas of revamping that ranged from easy and inexpensive to more work and more money. She was focused on OUR needs, and goals. Chelsea has amazing vision, and gorgeous taste. She is very well connected with suppliers and contractors and her people skills are exceptional. I HIGHLY recommend Chelsea for any job big or small.
We have hired Chelsea for our Real Estate team that produces a high volume of sales, and she not only can keep up with your production at a quality level, she does an amazing job with our sellers getting our home prepared for pictures. She has made every one of our listings sparkle even more and has definitely helped us sell more! We would highly suggest her for any project big or small she can do it all! You won’t regret it.
Chelsea was professional and honest. Her ideas were spot on and saved us a small fortune by seeing the big picture better then we did.
Chelsea helpfully guided us through the pre-work of listing our house for sale. She told us what needed to be done, prioritized the tasks by area, and ensured that our home would shine in the photographs and open house. We’ll take all her advice!
Chelsea helped me with my office remodel project, picking out paint colors, carpet, art work, furniture, and the like. She has an amazing way of connecting with the client to be sure needs are met. I couldn’t be happier with how my office turned out.
As a construction contractor we do a lot of work with Owner’s Reps/Designers. While this relationship is one of the most important to the entire process, it is also one of the most potentially tenuous. In speaking to other contractors, we occasionally hear complaints about the designers on their projects. Whether it is their ineptitude, their capriciousness, or their attitudes, some are viewed more as a punchline than a partner in the process. This partnership is so very important, however, to not just the process, but the product, as well.
I am grateful to say that on a recent residential property that we completed, we had the rare honor of experiencing this relationship as it ought to be. Katherine Gardner is an Owner’s Rep/Designer who performs both duties well. She was far more than just a go-between and interior decorator, though. She took a project that was fraught with issues, most of which were caused by the initial contractor who had to be replaced mid-stream, and she did more than just salvage it—she nailed it! Along with the logistical problems, there were numerous budgetary challenges that came with the mismanagement of the previous contractor, which would have handcuffed many in that position. She did a wonderful job of honoring the owner’s need to keep the costs down, while at the same time designing the house in such a way that it didn’t look like it was done on a shoestring.
She had the current owner as well as the prospective buyer in mind throughout the process. Katherine has an extensive, real-world knowledge of all of the different finishes and trades, so when she called for various specs, she was not just ordering in a bubble. She had implementation and installation in mind, not just pictures in a catalog. That is so very valuable to contractors as well as sub-contractors. She was intimately and intelligently involved in every aspect of the project. Outside of the daily logistics of the project and the working relationship, Katherine was a joy to work with personally. She was gracious, conscientious, and communicative. Because of her personality and approach, she made a potentially difficult job that much smoother and more enjoyable. I look forward to the possibility of working with Katherine on future projects!
