I have to take issue with the review posted here by Jennifer C. KT recently completed a five-month design project for my condo and she was not only a great designer, she was a true professional and joy to work with. Before beginning the project I asked KT for a few references. She gave me the contact information for seven former clients - they ranged from a young couple just getting started in their first house with a very small budget to people who I would guess spent more money redoing their living room than I spent on my whole condo. I contacted all seven hoping to hear back from two or three within a short window. EVERY single one of them either called or emailed me, or both!, within 24 hours and they all said the exact same thing - you will not only love what she does for your home, you'll love working with her. All of them went on and on about how highly they thought of her. I almost wondered whether these people were for real...but after working with KT I can tell you first-hand that they were absolutely right.
She was both creative and resourceful, identifying the things that were worth the extra money and the items that we could frankly get at IKEA that would be just fine. She regularly showed me different versions or ways of doing something and never pressured me to go above my budget. (Full disclosure: I went over but that was my choice.) KT also hired the carpenter, painter, flooring contractors, etc., that worked on my condo. They were all folks she had clearly done multiple projects with before. Not only was she professional and ALWAYS on time (not something I can say about myself) but she made sure all those she hired were professional and on time. And when they didn't finish a project to my (or her) liking, she always made sure it was redone...and never was that an extra cost to me.
I'd like to be able to include a negative trait here about KT so that anyone reading this review wouldn't think I was just blowing smoke but I'm not going to make up something that isn't true. I would hire KT again for any design project and I would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone who was looking for an interior decorator and/or someone to manage a design project for their home.
It's unfortunate that Jennifer didn't ask for references from people who have actually worked with KT. I would have told her how many times KT worked around my schedule, how often she went above and beyond to make the process easier for me, and that she was one of the most honest and up front people I've ever met. I love, love the new look of my place and would be happy to show anyone considering KT as their designer my before and after photos - and to answer any questions about what it was like to work with her. Add me to her already long list of very happy customers.
