Success Stories

Kelley Grimes In Truth and Beauty cr It was such a joy to work with Catherine redesigning my art studio. I had tolerated an overflowing, disorganized and cluttered space for way too long and it was negatively effecting my desire to be creative in my studio. Inviting Catherine into my space encouraged me to start letting go of things I no longer needed and she was so skilled in designing the space so that it is now organized, spacious and beautiful!

She gave me a list of things to do after she left so I could continue the improve my space, including bringing in plants, creating a beautifully decorated bulletin board over my desk and hanging prayer flags to separate the studio from the garage.

My space feels transformed and I am now excited to create my art and tools for self-nurturing in my studio. I even have invited clients out to my studio which never would have happened in the past! Thank you so much Catherine for your amazing expertise, loving support and helpful accountability!

I asked Catherine to update our cavernous and cold space that, while designed for function, looked like a high school locker room. I wanted the rooms to be warm and inviting and the space needed to be flexible enough to feel intimate with a quartet yet not crowded when all of the choirs and orchestra gathered together.


Catherine worked within our budget using color, rugs, existing furnishings and accessories to update the space and make it feel more inviting.


Not only did I have a much more sophisticated office space, but also Catherine updated the music library, so that a completely underutilized space is now another peaceful place for people to gather. Our musical community looked forward to rehearsal time and I enjoyed having a space that reflected who I am spiritually and as a musician.

Catherine M Avery Catherine brought my office to life – adding functional organization, as well as personal touches, art and accessories. Now, I can’t wait to get to work. And I feel confident that my office space reflects my role as my clients’ trusted advisor.

Our office space in the Burr Homestead was historic but unfurnished, unpainted, not functional and had no style. It needed to work both for an administrator during the day and our board meetings in the evening.


Catherine created a welcoming office with an efficient desk area for our administrator and a conference table and chairs. With the addition of warm color, Catherine turned our space into a big wow. Our board members enjoyed having a comfortable space to meet and plan.

Mark Glidden When I significantly downsized my office space, I was concerned that I still have access to what I need but not feel crowded.

Using a creative combination of color and furnishings, Catherine pulled off the miraculous. My patients were pleasantly surprised at the comfort of my new space and I received several referrals.

Catherine takes the time to listen to her client’s needs, nailing down exactly your vision and turning it into reality, not wasting unnecessary time and cost.


She is dedicated to hitting the mark; marrying your ideas and her finished product. I recommend her

I wasn’t the type to hire an Interior Designer, but Catherine is so down-to-earth and enthusiastic I took the plunge anyway. I got great advice, understanding of our needs and timely service.


Pat C. – New Canaan, CT





I wanted my environment to look and feel like a home for my teen children and me quickly and affordably. Catherine understood what I was trying to accomplish in my home and guided me through establishing color, creating floor plans and selecting furnishings, accessories and window treatments with great success. I look forward to working with Catherine on my current and future projects.


Mike J. – Stamford, CT





I was looking for a new change after struggling with my own likes and dislikes. Catherine brought in new colors to my living room and kitchen that I would not have thought of. It changed the whole look and made our home a more comfortable place.


Janice S. – Stratford, CT





Working with Catherine has been such a positive experience. She is extremely professional, knowledgeable about colors and space planning and knows just where to go to get the right thing. I have worked with Catherine on several design projects and would highly recommend her.


Betsy J. – Fenwick Island, DE and Bradenton, FL and Manhattan, NY





Hiring Catherine was the best thing we have ever done. Changing our playroom into a home theater/family room turned out to be much more than we expected. My husband wanted one thing and I wanted another. Catherine listened to both of our needs and created a true living space that will make us both happy – and still fit our adult children when they visit!
