    Really communicative and collaborative experience. I appreciate that they worked with my budget and gave me a plan to implement over time so that I can budget.

    Hi Linda, The reason we provide free consultations to our potential clients is because it's important that the relationship is a match for both sides. Designing a home is an extremely personal experience, and a great rapport and shared vision is necessary for the optimal outcome. That being said, you chose not to hire us, so I'm a bit perplexed about the review since we in fact never worked together. If we accidentally created a soil mark on your chair, we profusely apologize. We wish you the best of luck with your future endeavors.

    Kate from Arranging Order is professional, flexible, organized, tasteful and efficient. My wife and I are professionals who recently purchased a house. Kate advised on colors, tile for backslash, furniture and rugs. Her recommendations were not only beautiful and flowed throughout the house, but she was also able to help us find deals and save without looking cheap. She helped us with interior design for the entire house, closet build-out and organization, and office, kitchen and basement organization. We are so pleased with the suggestions she gave - she listens and advises with style. Whether you need interior design assistance or master organization assistance, Kate and Arranging Order is a fantastic choice. We continue to use the company - a terrific value.

    I hired Kate to help me set up my new apartment. I was overwhelmed and needed to stay within my budget. She was able to identify my style and organize the purchases that I needed to make. Kate was able to make a plan for me in multiple stages, so that my apartment could become a real home! She picked paint colors, furniture, and organized each room from start to finish. I would recomend using Arranging Order for any project. Kate is flexible and easy to work with. This process would not have been the same without her expertise!

    I just finished a living room/dining room overhaul with Kate. It was a long process. I have a tendency to vacilate and am never happy with a big purchase, the first few minutes I have it in hand. Kate was unbelievably patient! I am a bit of a drama queen so she had to get me through it.I always adored the pieces, in the end. She taught me so much and saved me many, many dollars by her frugle findings. The result was a collaborative effort and I have a beautiful space that reflects my personality! After all, that is what a designer is supposed to do! Besides that, she is very nice!

    It was a wonderful experience working with Kate from Arranging Order from beginning to end! Kate is professional, personable, listens to your needs in the space and addresses them, and is mindful of the budget that is set. I was blown away by the final outcome! In a few hours, my home and workspace were transformed completely, most with what I already had. Now I feel settled in, at home, and efficient in my workspace. I have a small studio that now actually looks bigger with more furniture in than it did before without those pieces! I highly recommend AO to whomever wants to reorganize or redesign their working and living spaces.

Q&A

What types of customers have you worked with?
I most often work with my clients on "editing." My clients are usually individuals or younger families who have a limited budget. Often they are most interested in paint color selection assistance, or help finding the best item(s), whether furniture or accessories for their space within their budget. I also provide a great deal of organization assistance to my clients. Sometimes this involves buying organizing items to maximize their storage space in a visually appealing manner.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
It's important that both parties feel comfortable with each other. A designer comes into your home or office (such a personal space!) and it's important that their is mutual trust between both parties. A client should be able to walk into their space at the end of the project - and feel like "home." With open and clear communication - the best possible outcome is able to be reached. The perfect design for you and your space.
