I was feeling stressed and overwhelmed with making decorating decisions at my house. Having Cate come in provided me with a whole new, fresh perspective! We made changes right away by moving around furniture and tweaking accessories. Cate’s direction and encouragement gave me decorating confidence! I can’t wait to implement her ideas.
