Dear Kathy,

Well, once again you out did yourself. The bathroom is beyond belief (and J…and I are the only ones comfortable using it as it was intended). When we finally do it, our bedroom is going to be a knock out.

Thank you for taking care of us and guiding us. You must bring [others] by to show off your work. Another great year! Thanks.

Dear Kathy,

I have enjoyed working with you and I am very comfortable with our relationship. I appreciate your patience and flexibility. You seem to understand what I want and like with my limitations. Thank you.

Dear Kathy,

I heard that you were responsible for the lovely interiors at [one of the homes on the Virginia Beach Garden tour]. I especially enjoyed the décor there. Keep up the good work. I always love your window treatments.

Hi Kathy,

I want you to know how much I appreciate your efforts in remodeling our home! You are a wonderful designer and you have great instincts & taste. I already knew this ( since your name starts with a silent “K”) but seeing the granite & floor & cabinetry come together today is a wonderful illustration of your skill and eye. As I am sure you know, I would never have picked that slate floor without your encouragement & I thank [you] for finding it for me. It will be a great centerpiece for our home, I think. I can’t wait for it to all come together! I really think it will be worthy of a spread in Southern Living! Thanks again! Hugs!

Thanks for being so on top of this [house renovation], you are awesome!…Liked the paneled rooms, thanks for sending and giving me the visual. The kids saw the house yesterday and said “I am so glad I saw the before. I can’t wait to see it after it is” Knack attacked”. I am so glad to have you assisting on this project.


Kathy has great ideas. She helped us renovate our family room which had paneling and wall to wall carpet. She suggested preparing the paneling for grasscloth wallpaper and replacing the carpet with hardwood flooring. She also suggested facing our brick fireplace with natural stone. In addition we closed in a set of patio doors with a triple window, and replaced all other doors and windows which gave the room a more sophisticated appearance. Her assistance in selecting fabrics and rugs was invaluable. She has exquisite taste, a great sense of humor and unlimited patience. Her “Knack Attack” added to the ambiance of the room with selections of lamps, pillows and occasional tables. She is the best!!
Thanks for you help!
