Interior Design - finishes, colour, furniture and art selection. 3,500 square feet.
Olive Penthouse - Hyatt Regency, Seattle. Washington.
This penthouse condominum in downtown Seattle was new construction with beautiful views of Seattle, Mount Rainier to the south and Lake Union to the north. With 20 ft high windows the rooms were bright and open and void of furniture. Interior design and decorating tasks were to create elegant and livable rooms. Wall covering, paint color and lighting selections created the backdrop for the furniture and accessories that were selected to complement the existing space and aesthetic appeal of the clients.
"We hired Kim to design and furnish a new condo after talking to a number of designers. We were fortunate to find Kim. She is so creative that the first time she walked into the space, she gave us ideas for paint colors, the lighting and how the furniture could be arranged. Others talked mostly about their portfolio and their rates!
The next time we met, Kim had a detailed plan and the hours it would take to implement. Kim has a passion for design and an amazingly good taste. Her plan for paint colors, lightings and window treatment was methodical with attention to details, practical and cost effective. She very quickly sensed our preferences and designed accordingly. Several choices of colors and styles were always presented. She works very well with contractors and some came to us with proven results from Kim’s past projects. She did not exceed the budget, would not mark up her cost of furniture and we ended up with an elegant collection of pieces that were acquired at a lower price than what we could purchase on our own. We were especially impressed when Kim would propose a different piece she had found after we had approved the purchase of the furniture and her new choice was indeed better-- at no additional design fee! A perfectionist, she was always thinking and forwarding new ideas, yet sticking to the original agreement.
Her passion for excellence and her artistic talent are evident in the transformation of our condo to an elegant, cozy and beautifully balanced space filled with unique yet functional furniture. The project was completed on time and on budget. We highly recommend Kim and believe she has the talent, passion and the experience to tackle a design project of any size".
