CDA Interior Design


Business Description
Creating spaces that combine beauty and function is the focus of Catherine Dolen’s work as an interior designer. Her personal design philosophy is as follows:

“We are all bombarded daily with the stresses of life. An individual’s surroundings, whether at home or work, should not contribute to that stress. I believe that every space should nurture the people that use it and provide a source of serenity, enabling each person to make the most of living. Space, light, texture, color, and all the other principles and elements of design are the tools that I use to achieve that goal for each client and project.”

Catherine’s credentials and experience guarantee the highest quality of design expertise. That fact, combined with her commitment to the well-being of the client, assures that each project will have the best possible result.

Thanks so very much for your prompt answer! We are constructing a unit made from drywall on a 16' wall (12 doors). We'd like to be able to occasionally serve on the unit (extended lower cabinetry). We're leaning toward a quartz or laminate top. Hence, my question. Again, many, many thanks for your response.

Yes, can you email me a quote & measurements of the rug. Also, how much is that ottoman with measurements. I like the size in the photo.

Oh thank you for responding. Painting four walls dark gray is different from painting just one wall dark gray! The room is so inspiring. I love the yellow pillows against the gray!

The desk chair is a vintage patio chair purchased at an estate sale. Something similar could be found at a resale or consignment furniture store.
