My experience with Cathy Rowe was nothing but positive as she helped me design and decorate my new beach house. She was calm, patient, professional and engaging and always listened to what I had in mind as well as offering innovative designs of her own. She was able to help with everything from interior finishes to furniture plans to the purchase of new furnishings and also helped me coordinate some of my existing pieces into the overall design. Her upholstery and window treatments are particularly magnificent. My family and I are astounded by the beauty of our home and I am grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Cathy!

Cathy designed our basement remodeling project -- a bath with sauna and a guest suite. She did a fantastic job incorporating all our wants and needs in a relatively small space. She also found and managed the sub-contractors -- electrician, plumber, carpentry work, etc., making the entire project easier on us than expected. She managed our budget as if it were her own and helped us make good design choices along the way. The end result is beautiful and functional AND on budget! I would definitely use her again on another home design project.

I had the opportunity to work with Cathy during a redecoration of a family owned summer house (dining room, living room, two sitting areas and master bedroom), Throughout the 6 month process, Cathy was the consummate professional. She listened carefully to everyone’s input, provided options, navigated the opinions of multiple people with grace and equanimity and ultimately delivered exception results on time and under budget. I highly recommend Cathy for her skills, integrity, work ethic and even keeled approach to the decorating process – without a doubt I’d use Cathy again for any future projects!

I highly recommend Cathy Rowe as a designer. She has done excellent work for the the Goodall Memorial Library and our home. She has a terrific color sense, a great knowledge of products and trends, and a creative way of looking at issues that is "out-of-the-box" but not outrageous or over the top. She is timely, professional, and a very nice person to work with. I recommend her without any hesitation.

Cathy provides interior design services with skill and sensitivity to her client's needs. She assisted us in two projects selecting colors, furnishings and finishing touches. Cathy is a real joy to work with.

Cathy was instrumental in designing and facilitating our purchase of furniture for our great room, media room and bedroom as well as the window treatments for our whole house. She was outstanding at generating ideas and also listening to our ideas , so that we ended up with rooms that are a true reflection of us though we could never have attained that same result without her. She has great sources and access to companies, and so was able to advocate for us in terms of time and product. She came to visit some months after out porch furniture had arrived, and she was not pleased with the state of the cushions. She called the company, and they ended up replacing every cushion. That was just one example of her attention and follow-up. If we are ever in need of new furniture, we shall call her without hesitation!
