3 Reviews for Kenneth Brown Design
I have used Kenneth Brown Design for two residential projects. The scope of work for the first project was to furnish a 4500 sq. ft. house, select finishes for cabinets, counter tops, and flooring, select drapery style and fabric, design two fireplaces, and to design four bathrooms. This was an oceanfront property, and it turned out amazing!! It was a warm, modern, organic design that co-existed beautifully with the sea. Kenneth understood the importance of letting the furnishings be a backdrop for the panoramic ocean view. All the fabrics somehow reflected the surf and sand, and the end result was spectacular. The second project encompasses furnishing a 5500 sq. ft. house overlooking a golf course in a Spanish/Mediterranean subdivision. Kenneth immediately knew the look I wanted by asking one question!! His ability to zero in on a client's vision is a gift he brings to every project. Kenneth brings a project in on time, and is always budget conscious. His personality is such that he gets along with everyone, and is a pleasure to work with. His knowledge and ability to combine different period styles are priceless. I love his innovative use of color - his color combinations are unique, and it's so refreshing. Thanks to Kenneth, he has made my home my castle, a place to relax, unwind, and re-energize. I can't wait for our third project!!!!
When Kenneth signed on to help with my house in Tucson, the house was still in the design phase. He oversaw the construction, design and installation, while adhering to sometimes changing budgetary guidelines. Kenneth is especially adept at managing disparate groups of people and being professional and diplomatic with everyone. I always tell people that one of his best skills is his ability to take someone's vision and help manifest it in the best possible way. Finally, he is extraordinarily talented, and so much fun to work with. I recommend him, and his team, without reservation.

I have had the pleasure of working with Kenneth for over 15 years. His creative eye for timeless design, color palettes, budget sensitivity, and knowledge of construction are only a few of the reasons I work with Kenneth on every project. My partner and I are serial remodelers and have completed over 12 projects with him. All of our homes have been published in local or national magazines thanks to Kenneth's talents. He's ability to listen to our wants and needs respecting budget constraints is superb; always leaving his ego on the porch. His southern charm and contagious enthusiasm for good design make working with Kenneth a joy!!!! Lorrie Webb Homeowner and General Contractor
