ACCOLADES

“We used Catherine to help us remodel a kitchen and update the first floor with new wall colors, new mantels and surrounds for the fireplaces, and new window treatments. Working with Catherine was an incredibly positive experience. She took time to get to know our color and design preferences then brought her wisdom and design skills to the table offering suggestions and guidance. She has excellent resources, but was also open to exploring and using a couple of resources we had. She has an eye for detail and made sure the work was meticulous through every step of the process. Cathy was on schedule with her work and was always responsive to our communications. We are thrilled with the finished project and will definitely use her for future projects.” – Julie & Rich Milne

“Designers with merely an excellent eye may satisfy some homeowners.  Cathy Schager possesses not only state of the art vision that will give you a beautiful home but the ability to both listen to your lifestyle needs and adhere to your timeline and budget as well.  It was truly a pleasure working with Cathy.” – Susan Ardell

“We engaged Cathy to assist our opening of our new corporate office.  Cathy made the entire process seamless and has given us an office that we are proud to show our clients.  She met with our associates to make sure she included their ideas and work habits and was able to make a space they will enjoy working in for years to come.  We still plan to pull Cathy in as we begin plans for our employee kitchen and the associates are now looking forward to what she will do for us next.” – Don McKevitt, President, Thirteen Pillars

“We retained Cathy to help us with our master bathroom remodel. We already had a basic plan, but needed Cathy’s expertise to put the design to paper – and to scale. She had excellent ideas, improved upon our plan  and stayed within budget. Our end result is beautiful!  Thank you, Cathy!” – Catherine E. Goldhaber, Esq.

“The truth is, in the 30 years I’ve lived in this house I’ve spent maybe the total of one full day in this room.  Now I spend most of my day here.” – Miff Ardell

“Cathy did a wonderful job with the remodeling of two bathrooms, a bedroom and stair case. Her vision, creativity and efficiency saved us considerable time. She was respectful of both our taste and budget. We are very pleased with the end result.” – Margaret H.

“Cathy recently helped me redecorate our living and family rooms, and I couldn’t be happier with the results. I especially appreciated how well Cathy listened to my ideas for these rooms and then applied her creativity (and persistence!) to translate my vision into a beautiful reality. Cathy also has great communications skills and was sensitive to our budgetary needs.” – Trish W

“I am lucky enough to have worked with Cathy on a number of projects and continue to be amazed by her creative talents.  Not only can she create a beautiful scheme, but her diligent project management ensures completion on time & in budget.  It’s always a pleasure to work with a true professional who is personable, likable, and above all, talented.”  – Justin Oliver, owner of Justin Oliver Inc., maker of fine, handcrafted custom furniture and cabinetry
