We were lucky enough to work with Pat recently on a full bathroom redmodel in our 1910 Seattle Arts & Crafts house after a recommendation from a friend. My husband & I SO enjoyed the process of working with her - from her great sense of style to her historic/international knowledge & sensitivities- that the end result is an intimate yet wow-inspiring room. (many friends have threatened to move into the room...) Getting creative with sliding shojis instead of doors in two places allowed us to max out our potentially limited space. As a result, we continue to consult with Pat for furniture, paint and lighting consultations throughout the house and we have even ""branched out"" into the backyard!
I know that I do alright in the style category, but I also know that bringing Pat in on these projects to add her many-layers of creative expertise to it has given us immeasurable added value & joy!

I've used Pat for two projects - my loft in Chelsea and my home in East Hampton. She also redid my sister's bathroom in an art-deco, pre-war upper West side co-op and it turned out beautifully. She has a fabulous sense of color and design and yet is very practical. Whenever anyone visits my home in East Hampton, they always comment on how peaceful it is. I really owe that to Pat as she has been instrumental in creating that space from the very beginning. I have a good idea of what I like and want but have realized how important it is to work with someone with the highly-developed sense of color and design that Pat has. I would have chosen colors way too strong and it would have been a disaster ! I have a huge amount of granite in my East Hampton kitchen and once again, the wrong choice would have been expensive and awful. She was great to deal with and came up with granite that I've not seen in anyone else's kitchen and everyone (including me!) absolutely loves it. It has made the kitchen. In addition, the tiles that she presented to compliment the granite could not have been more perfect and once again, I've not seen them anywhere else ! Both the loft and the house have a beautiful sense of drama and flair and I owe that to Pat. I highly recommend her and the work that she does !
