""Katrina has a true creative gift to see the potential of places and match that almost seamlessly with the client she is working with. She is unique in her ability to both create interiors in an original way whilst responding to the needs of her clients.She is the only interior designer i have met who truly transforms, thus delivering the vision. She is also lovely, integrous and great fun to work with."
Jan Stimpson, Client
"Katrina is a very talented designer with a huge flair for color and style. She absorbs herself completely in her work and gives 120 per cent. I loved what she did with my flat. It is original, thoughtful, elegant and cosy, utterly original and completely to brief. Thank you, Katrina."
Annabelle Heseltine, Client
"In my opinion, Katrina's shop on Portobello Road stands out from the rest. The eclectic mix of unique objects, paintings, jewelry, crafts and furniture she juxtaposes next to (and sometimes on top of) each other is a reflection of her wonderful design sensibility. Katrinahas a great 'eye' and she, and her helpful colleagues, are always on hand to share the story behind each piece, which has made for a fun and interesting experience every time I've stepped through her door. Among other things, I have bought three African primitive stools from Ethiopia from her, works of art in their own right, which I now consider among my most treasured possessions. Knowing now that I have a penchant for African pieces, she will contact me when she gets something fabulous in--that's personalized service. I can see why she's been so successful as an interior designer.
I am looking forward to checking out her holiday displays, which are always a treat, and to my next chat with Katrina, who is a lovely person to boot."
Stephanie Weissman, Client

"Apart from being a brilliant interior designer, Katrina has a gift for sourcing unusual and beautiful things, some can be seen in her quirky little shop in Notting Hill, lots of treasures to be found there :)
Katrina is a very lovely lady, friendly, hard working and often goes out of her way to ensure her clients are happy. She just always seems to know what they want...
Patricia Dubart, Julian Chichester Designs, Contractor/ Consultant
"Katrina has commissioned hand painted fabrics from me for various interior projects. It is always exciting and refreshing to work with her as she has a clear vision that she communicates with passion. She has an eye for the unusual and the bespoke and values the work of artists like myself."
Melissa White, Melissa White Designs, Contractor
"Katrina runs a beautiful shop on the Portobello Road which sells amazing objects for interiors and architectural salvage from around the world. She is also a talented interior designer, and asked me to wallpaper a loft apartment for a client of hers in Notting Hill: two huge central corridor walls from the doorway to the reception area, in a lovely Elitis wide wallcovering, with subtle shadows of hand sized leaves. The effect was very dreamy and transporting, and a good use of poetic pattern to lift what would otherwise have been dead space forced by the layout of the new build apartment.
Katrina was a very pleasant and professional designer to work for, with a clear communication style and high standards.
I would not hesitate in recommending her design services, and her shop!"
Yair Meshoulam, Business Development Manager at Mylands of London, Contractor
"I have known Katrina as a customer of ours for many years and have always found her very easy to deal with. She clearly understands her clients' needs and is professional in her approach. Recently I have had the opportunity to work with her on site and have been impressed by the way that she runs her projects. Her shop is a treasure trove and a definite port of call for anyone decorating their house."
