Designing 6 Homes of Over 20 Years

Colleen Hanna
Project Date: January 1996 to Present

Kitty has been my designer for over 20 years lending her expertise to over 6 homes where I resided. She takes the time to get to know your style and works in your budget. I have had several realtors tell me that the reason my home sold so quickly was because of the interior paint, furnishings and layout that Kitty produced. I would never think of using another designer as each time I come home, it is a joy giving a feeling of warmth and love thanks to Kitty. Can’t say enough good things!!

Custom Master Suite

Project Date: March 2016

Kitty & Company provided design consulting and plans for our master bedroom remodel project. Kitty was extremely helpful in achieving an exciting new look while creating a more efficient design. The plans were clear and concise and we would not hesitate to hire Kitty and Company for future projects.

Complete Basement Remodel and Master Bathroom

William McPherson
Project Date: July 2015 to Present

Kitty & Co took a difficult basement finish-out and turned the space into an attractive, comfortable environment. Ceilings were low, the only outside light was from ceiling level glass block windows, and the stairs came down the center of the space. Kitty recommended a palette of colors that enhance the limited natural light and look great with the LED ceiling fixtures. Her selections for floor coverings are both attractive and functional.

Because the bath would be both guest bath when entertaining and personal bath the rest of the time, we asked Kitty to develop an upscale look with designer plumbing and hardware, but with a modest budget. She accomplished both and our guests’ comments are usually in the “WOW” range. Kitty was timely in preparing her recommendations, flexible in working with our preferences, and patient in explaining the basis for her designs. Because of that we asked for further assistance with creating a color palette for the upstairs that opened and warmed the space.

We’re finally getting everything out of boxes and will be seeking her assistance with mixing existing decorative items with new items to create the “look and feel” we want for our home. Great to work with – highly recommend Kitty.

The ¡Amore! Kitchen, Bathroom, and Family Room

Colleen Haley
Project Date: May 2015 to Present

Kitty worked with us to completely redesign and remodel our kitchen – she came up with a creative and functional design that met all of my expectations. Kitty understood our needs, our style and was open to our input. The project was challenging because I was out of the country 75% of the time – but Kitty was always flexible and responsive. We could not be happier with our new kitchen!

Apple of My Eye Kitchen

Project Date: December 2014

We enjoyed working with Kitty on our remodeling project. She was easy to work with and provided a thoughtful, imaginative and practical design that addressed our need for more space and an improved floor plan. She guided us through the process, so we knew what to expect, and even found us the perfect granite! Now we have a beautiful kitchen that fits our personality and lifestyle.

Remodeling Historic Home in Ann Arbor

Robert Fouser
Project Date: April 2014

Kitty was critical to the success of this project. She was excellent in understanding my needs and coming up practical yet attractive choices within my budget to meet them. This is the second time that I have worked with a designer on a remodeling project, and Kitty compared well with the first experience because she avoided trendy “overdesign.” I always felt that she had my needs at heart instead of her own portfolio. I recommend her very highly.

Kitchen Consulting

Project Date: June 2013

We hired Kitty to help us pick out custom tile for our kitchen backsplash. She worked hard to get us exactly what we wanted. She made repeated trips to the tile supplier and brought multiple samples until we found the perfect match. The end product is perfect!

Contemporary Kitchen

Patty A.
Project Date: December 2012

Kitty & Company provided a design for our kitchen and dining room that transformed not only the space but also how our family uses and enjoys the space. Kitty & Company provided us with four very different options to consider. The plan that we selected totally transformed the space providing light and room we never imagined could exist. Kitty & Company also provided us with finish options that provided us with that new and unique look we were seeking. Throughout the process, Kitty & Company was very responsive to our priorities, tastes, and budget. Our new kitchen and adjacent spaces are everything we hoped for and more.

Portfolio Photography

Angela Brown Photography LLC
Project Date: April 2011 to Present

Kitty is a wonderful, collaborative interior designer and I love working with her. I first hired Kitty in 2001 when we were building our custom home. She was involved with floor planning, paint, flooring, cabinetry. Her recommendations made a positive difference in how our home was done, as we had a difficult lot on which to build and therefore a limited footprint. She also provided a design concept with furniture, color scheme, fabrics, etc.

Over the years I contacted her for several other projects – usually once a year or so, and they encompassed such things as repainting, drapery design and coordination with seamstress, wall art layout, more furniture, bedding/bedskirts, furniture layout, accessories, etc.

Kitty is amazingly easy to work with. I have had experiences with two designers in the past where the designer forced ideas on me that I ultimately did not love. Kitty understands my design style and “gets” what I like in my coastal-style home. She is thoughtful, kind, collaborative and organized. She works around sentimental items that I have rather than turning her nose up at them. My home has Kitty’s stamp all over it. I have referred her to others and she will be my designer for life!

Various Upholstery Projects

Jason Um
Project Date: 1996 to Present

Most designers have a keen eye for color and aesthetics…that’s what makes them designers. However, the ability to seamlessly overcome challenges during a project sets Kitty & Company apart from other design groups. We all know that issues will arise during a project and clients do not want to be bothered with those issues. Kitty & Company works hard to magically make those obstacles disappear, more often than not, without the client even knowing the issue existed in the first place.

Their professionalism, courteousness and delivery makes Kitty & Company a true pleasure to work with! I look forward to working with them as a client someday!

Framing Artwork

Tony Truchan
Project Date: 1996 to Present

I have known and worked with Kitty Golding (Kitty & Company) well over 10 years on various projects. My services I provide for her and her clients include, custom picture framing, custom mirror framing, installation of framed items at the project site, and design consultation for various framing projects. In all my years working with Kitty I have found that her attention for perfection is in high regards to her clients needs. Kitty is very thorough with her instructions and design request making my job much easier and more importantly a satisfied client. She is very pleasant to work with and has always given me ample time to achieve the project deadlines. I have a busy schedule, sometimes it prohibits me to meet at normal working hours. Kitty has always been willing to meet or talk with me during off business hours. I always look forward to a text or email from Kitty asking me for help with a project. I know that it will be an enjoyable and satisfying experience for both me and her client.

I have known Kitty for over 25 years, and cannot recommend her highly enough. We have worked together professionally, and I am constantly impressed by her talent, integrity, and focus. She has a natural gift for putting her clients at ease, understanding their needs, and transforming their environments into something extraordinary. This is all done with a gentle humility that is rarely seen in our profession.
