CDKD Inc. is a small boutique firm for kitchen and bath design, and other living and storage needs. I specialize in individualized design, customer service, project management, and custom cabinetry -- all with a focus on casual elegance for busy families. Serious cooks are welcome.
I’m really interested in what the client’s needs are and how to take them where they want to go. Some designers offer a “look”, but I like to find new solutions to the old problems, to create a space that is uniquely right for each client. The range of my portfolio demonstrates that commitment.
Getting the details right, avoiding mistakes in the field, takes planning and support systems. I walk my clients through each stage of the process, from initial layouts to elevations, to showrooms and stone yards. When needed, I streamline the process for busy clients, doing the initial research and sending them pre-selected choices for tiles, stone, fixtures. I enjoy a well-earned reputation for organization and thoroughness.
I studied art and art history in college and have been a life-long architecture buff. After college, I worked as a painter and illustrator before landing in kitchen design. Like most visual artists, I love to cook and so kitchen design was a natural step for me to take. I know I bring the depth of my art and design knowledge to each project, and my painterly eye to its form and color. My work has been featured in Women’s Day, HGTV Magazine and other publications.
What I most enjoy is the happiness of a job well done, when client tells me how much they love the space, how great it is to have a place for everything, how much fun they’re having cooking with the kids or having friends over. I once asked a client why she hadn’t put a table and chairs in the kitchen we did. She said, “If I do that, we’ll NEVER leave this room.”
