The Courts project was a total update and renovation on a home the client had recently purchased. The client was a young family with a modern aesthetic which we highlighted with structured art-deco pieces and bright whites. For this design we channeled a turn-of-the-century modern design. We wanted the home to still feel livable because of the client’s two young children, so we warmed up the space by incorporating a blend of warm neutral tones and cooler pops of color.
“Katie took care of every detail from consulting with contractors and picking out paint colors to hanging pictures and finding unique accessories. My family lived in our house throughout the entire renovation process, and Katie always worked with me on the best times to do certain projects to make sure we were inconvenienced the least amount of time possible. I would recommend Katie to anyone! She is nothing short of amazing and I can’t wait to work with her again in the future.” - Amanda Keith (homeowner)
For this project, KGD partnered with the homeowners about two months into their new construction. We came alongside the homeowner and builder to help them finalize the details of their new home. We assisted them with picking out finishes, as well as helping guide them through the remainder of the process. KGD incorporated traditional elements and textures to make this kitchen timeless but still unique to the homeowner.
CARTER LANE REMODEL
The Carter Lane remodel was a continuation of a project that we had previously worked on. This design focused on redesigning the kitchen and the master bedroom to make it cohesive with the light and airy feel of the rest of the home. The color palette for the house is soft and natural tones which are accentuated with the wooden accents. However, the fixtures and furnishings bring a youthful modernized approach to what would typically be traditional in style.
“When we decided to remodel our kitchen and master bedroom, we knew we wanted to use Katie! She had previously helped with our entry, living room and dining room by bringing new life to a dated space. We loved not only her ideas, and her style, but also how she guided us through the decision making process of the remodel project. Our new space is better than we imagined!” - Angie Alexander (homeowner)
BEAU VEU PROJECT
The Beau Veu Project was a new construction which gave us flexibility with design and architecture. The clients had a traditional yet contemporary style goal in mind that was brought to life by the cabinetry, fixtures, and color palette of watery grays - which also gave it an updated modern touch. This complimented the warm colors found in the wood floors and furnishings, as well as the few brassy fixtures found amidst the house.
“When starting a building project, details can be quite overwhelming but I never felt the typical stress & anxiety that comes with new construction because I had Katie & her expertise from the beginning! From our first plumbing decisions to the final finishing touches, Katie shared my vision & creatively executed a cohesive style for the whole house. It was an honor & pleasure to work with such a talented designer & my husband & I often remarked how grateful we were to have her throughout the entire process. The collaboration resulted in a house that reflected our needs & lifestyle, was traditional yet inspiring, & instantly felt like home.
I can confidently recommend Katie Grace Designs to anyone knowing how adept she was at working within our budgetary guidelines & utilizing technology to enhance communication. Ultimately, Katie's exquisite style & "Grace" have provided us with a home our family will enjoy for many years to come!” - Stephanie Moore (Homeowner)
CLEAR CREEK DESIGN
KGD helped them from the ground up with this design project. Helping them adjust floor plans to become more functional and overall brought together a cohesive style that blended their flair for the modern/mid century style and also their desire for the farmhouse/industrial elements. Katie and Corrie walked alongside the homeowner in meetings with every trade to bring together beautiful selections in each and every room.
“We had already started our project when Katie came on board. She immediately understood what we wanted and got to work! Katie and her team took care of every detail from changing the original floor plan to better suit our needs to consulting with contractors to picking out hardware, lighting, paint colors, etc!
It was my first time working with a professional designer, and I couldn't have been happier. From beginning to end, it was clear that Katie wanted to deliver not only a beautiful home but also a functional space for me and my family. She was patient with my questions, reliable, and such a pleasure to work with! She truly cares about her clients, and I couldn't imagine my house being as beautiful as it is without Katie and her team!
She is extremely talented and I am honored to have her name on my project! I would definitely recommend Katie to any prospective client looking for a designer! “ - Courtney Armiger (homeowner)
For the Coleman project, we teamed up with the owners for a redecoration project. The goal of our clients was for their home to remain functional for their children, while showcasing their traditional but polished design style. KGD achieved this look by changing basic things like paint and light fixtures - paired with furnishings to match. In the master bedroom, we complimented the clean decor and furniture by installing a grass cloth wall covering. For the furnishings we pulled warm and natural colors to go along with the tonal style of the home.
When the homeowner contacted KGD for this project we were starting with a fresh new construction that was already completed but was a blank slate in need of new furnishings and details to fill the space. The couple desired a thought out, cohesive design concept for each room in their new beautiful house. We took each room and styled and furnished it to be functional and sophisticated for this hardworking couple with young kids. Pops of subtle color, one of a kind textural elements and a touch of whimsy was key in making this vision come to life.
“Working with Katie Grace Designs has been a great experience. Katie and Corrie initially helped us with a few main rooms in our new house. We loved their work so much that over time we asked them to help with most of the other rooms, including our new outdoor space. Each room is individualized and amazing, and they all flow together so well. Katie’s style is creative and innovative. My family and I appreciate all of the thought and hard work that has gone into making our house a home. We strongly recommend Katie Grace Designs.” - Jenny Campbell (homeowner)
STEAM ROLLER BLUES
For the Highlander project we channeled a contemporary design concept with hints of modernism by bringing in structured silhouettes with pops of color. Functionality is always something we like to incorporate, and this project was no exception.
”Katie was wonderful to work with - she really got to know my personality and lifestyle before working on my house. I loved her out of the box ideas. Every single morning I truly think about how much I love my house and what she did with it!” - Pamela Rees (homeowner)
SHERRILL HEIGHTS REMODEL
Katie Grace Designs teamed up with Will Mark Homes to completely gut and renovate an existing home in Little Rock, AR. Not only were all the finishes changed in this project but there was a second story addition and the entire floorplan was rearranged to accommodate this growing family.
Throughout the design process Katie lead the homeowners through each decision and detail to create a customized modern, fresh and unique finishing design. Katie and her team worked with builder to keep on budget and schedule.
“KGD completely surpassed our expectations. We were expecting our second child when we started our home renovation journey, so we were on a major time crunch. Not only did Katie take care of our needs, but the minute one task was complete she was onto the next.
We were the type of clients that were not sure what we wanted. We were able to describe specific things that we liked about certain spaces, and she took the reins from there. I appreciated that Katie lead with our vision, but she guided us to taking risks and choosing special details that we would never have had the nerve to choose on our own.
I constantly hear horror stories about peoples’ experiences with building or renovating their homes, so was a little nervous in the very beginning stages of our project. I can proudly say that we are not able to add our story to that pile. From the moment we had our first meeting, it was smooth sailing.
We could not have chosen a better team and are SO PROUD to show everyone our new home. If we could do it again, we wouldn’t change a thing.
