I WHOLE-HEARTEDLY recommend Kathleen and the Tower Design team. Several years ago, I moved to Mill Valley from Boston after a divorce and needed an entirely new set of everything for my first solo home in decades. I appreciated Kathleen’s careful listening regarding my tastes and my budget, her collaborative approach to finding beautiful furniture for every room, and most of all, the final result. My home quickly felt like MY home, and it looked terrific. Kathleen created an elegant, artistic, and completely comfortable space. You would do yourself a huge favor in working with Kathleen and her team.
I really enjoyed working with Kathleen and her team. Kathleen really stretched me in ways that I felt at first nervous around, but then embraced and I am so glad that I did. She is a wealth of knowledge and experience, and she has so many helpful contacts and resources. This is in addition to her exquisite taste and uncanny sense of space and color. She really is a master. Kathleen went above and beyond to make things right for me; she was dedicated to my happiness and to pushing some boundaries around my normally very conservative tastes. My once traditional home is now so interesting and unique, yet livable and fabulous. Once we set the budget, she consistently checked in with me about where I might save to counterbalance a splurge. She also made me aware of lead times, so that I had realistic expectations about the timing of my project. She is professional, and it was clear that our Contractor respected her and appreciated working with her. She is a truly great designer with an amazing breadth of knowledge in both design and in the purchasing of art. She convinced me to purchase some pieces that created a wow factor that I never expected.
Tower Design worked with us on our weekend retreat in Ojai and did a masterful job. We are so pleased with both the results and our ongoing relationship with Kathleen. We were seamlessly guided through the process of design, drawings, construction, interior furnishings and lighting and the placement and purchase of art. Kathleen’s sense of design and color were spot-on throughout the entire process. As we continue to develop the project, we know that we can count on her for her wisdom, and her ability to create a truly sacred living environment for our home. Her design is unique in that she is intentional in the cultivation of a sense of peace, love, and the power of place throughout the design process. Importantly, we feel seen, heard and that our vision is expressed in a powerful way in the results so that it reflects who we are.
Working with Kathleen was FANTASTIC! I knew the “feeling” I wanted in our home, have but I didn’t know how to get there. I had previously worked with another designer who tried but kept missing the mark. Once I started working with Kathleen, I knew that she would be able to create exactly what I was looking for within the confines of our space. As part of the project, Kathleen designed a wall of built in cabinets complete with window seat and a custom bed. In addition, Kathleen was so easy to work with. I had a lot going on and Kathleen’s patience and support was invaluable.
I initially hired Kathleen for some fill-in items for my house. But more importantly, Kathleen designed our high end, historic, fine dining restaurant, Watermark on Main in Ventura, CA. She also designed the 3rd floor W2O 3rd Roof Top Lounge floor has a completely different style with a casual, ocean theme. Kathleen was resourceful and knowledgeable and created two one-of-a-kind, landmark environments. What I like most about Kathleen is that she listens to her clients and communicates well. She has no ego so it is comfortable to tell her you don’t like an item or need to change direction. As a designer she is professional, efficient, and a visionary. As a person, Kathleen has integrity and is fun to work with! I highly recommend Kathleen for any project!
Kathleen and her team performed what could only be described as a series of miracles with the interior design of my San Francisco 1880s Edwardian. From floor to ceiling, living room, dining room, bedrooms and bath were transformed into exquisite environments, tasteful yet totally livable and enticing thanks to Kathleen’s keen eye for perfection. She and her organization,Tower Design, are not only artfully professional but prompt, well worth the price and efficient beyond words. I can’t recommend them highly enough! You will not regret your decision to hire these interior design experts!
Kathleen did the interior design for my home in Los Angeles, and I could not recommend her more highly. I love the look and feel of my new living environment—and it really does feel like home in a way that I never expected or could even imagine on my own. Kathleen honestly has a genuine sense of who I am and what I’m about, and expressed that with grace and style in my decor. I became noticeably happier, more creative and more productive living in the space that she and her team created for me. She works magic. She brought my project in on budget and on time.
