Katie has been using our showroom as a resource for one of her projects in Chicago for the past few months. Each step of the way has been a fantastic, exciting, creative experience. She has an extremely keen eye for design, carefully picking out the perfect accessories, artwork and pieces of furniture that she knows her client will absolutely love. I was thrilled when she shared pictures with me of how the project was coming together and I am so happy that I could be a small part of making it happen! Katie is extremely polite, organized, works efficiently and is an absolute pleasure to work with. She is certainly among the top designer clients that we have had the privilege of working with! I highly recommend her.

My husband and I recently purchased a condo that was painted in very dark, saturated colors. I knew that we wanted a lighter and brighter space, but was having trouble identifying the right colors for the space. We asked Katie to help us with a color consultation and gave her very loose parameters: we wanted to paint our rooms in shades of true gray and the trim/doors/ceilings in a warm, but bright white. Katie let us know that some of the shades we gravitated towards would end up less gray and more blue or green, depending on the natural light we received in each room. At the end of the consultation, Katie had created a color palette for our condo that was exactly what we had envisioned and referred us to an excellent painter. The project is complete and our new home is airy, bright, and exactly the neutral gray we asked for!

I hired Katie to completely design my new condo and I really wanted everything asap. Katie had some amazing ideas that were unique, punchy and the final result looked incredible. Katie did everything from choosing paint colors, lighting selection and installation, furniture, rug and accessories sourcing and handled the full project management so I didn’t need to do anything. The results of her hard work were spectacular and she did everything with confidence, professionalism and speed. Everyone that has seen my home is flawed and asked for her coordinates right away – she really is the best and pleasure to work with!

I purchased a new condominium in Chicago in May 2015, and had little furniture that was suitable for the new space.
Based on recommendations from condominium owners in my building, I interviewed and chose Katie Bridgman (from Katie Charlotte design) to help me select new furniture, lighting, and floor coverings for the new space.
Katie took time to establish my tastes and preferences, and provided me swiftly with high quality and suitable choices in each category. She was quick to revise her recommendations and suggestions when initial choices did not appear to work well. Although our decorating activity was interrupted by my frequent absences linked to international travel obligations, we were able to make highly suitable selections swiftly, and once installed, they worked superbly.
I would be delighted to work with her again should the need arise, and would recommend her highly to others seeking simple, elegant and cost-effective interior designs.
I commend her highly.

Working with Katie Charlotte Design was an absolute pleasure, from beginning to end. Katie Charlotte worked with me to create a warm, cozy nursery for my newborn son. I had an idea for a tropical theme, and Katie Charlotte proposed several ideas about colour scheme, wall décor, and accent pieces. I loved them all, but could choose only one!
Katie Charlotte Design was a true professional, answering all inquiries promptly, and keeping in touch on a regular basis via email and telephone. I never second guessed that she was working on my nursery project with enthusiasm and genuine interest until we were both able to enjoy the finished project.
A few months ago, we welcomed a young baby boy in our family and wanted to create a comfortable and warm nursery for him by converting a guest bedroom. We asked Katie Charlotte Design to help us with the process. Katie immediately got involved by meeting with us to discuss the conceptual design. She worked with us to create the design, helped source and buy certain pieces and some wall art, coordinated the paint selections, and more. All along, she kept in touch with us through fast response emails as well as face to face consultations. The experience was delightful and the results excellent. We would highly recommend Katie for any interior design and decoration project!
