Testimonials

Invite Kendy into your home if you don’t have any decorating ideas OR if you have too many ideas. I’ve been in both of those situations and relying on Kendy’s creative inspiration, advice and expertise takes away the frustration of not being able to make confident, final decisions on my own. She is a pleasure to work with.

what could be done to realize the potential of their space.  

Although I started with an Interior Design program in college, I ended up with a Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration/Marketing and a minor in Graphic Design.   I spent several years in the radio industry selling and creating advertising.  I then took a position with an investment firm as a Marketing Coordinator.  That position evolved over time and I became more of an Office Manager/Compliance Coordinator.  During those years, the office underwent three different remodels where I got a chance to revisit my design roots and help coordinate the finishes and décor selected and the overall work space design.  

Over the years, I have built two homes of my own and helped a variety of friends and family build and remodel their homes.  I have

a passion for design and love the challenge of putting things together to create the desired outcome.  Happy friends and family are the best reward.

Having bought a 10 year old house to remodel and flip, we hired Kendy to help us with design and decorating recommendations.  Staying within a given budget, she provided coordinated selections of interior and exterior paint, flooring, tile, counter tops and fixtures.  Because of her magic, the house attracted multiple prospects and sold for the asking price in 10 days.  Needless to say she's helping us on the next project.
