Kate's passion for design and ability to understand the specific style of each client while weaving in the fresh, clean Kate Marker Interiors look. The result: a home that is not only inviting and approachable but, most importantly, feels like home.

How do we work with you?

Please fill out the form on our CONTACT US page, but note we are not taking on any new projects until 2020 to be fair to our existing clients under contract.  Should your timeline of desired start date be beyond that, please reach out!  When we are taking on new clients, we will discuss your project, style, scope, design needs, budget, and timing after receiving your information form.  


What size projects do you typically take on? 

We are a full service design firm and typically request that projects include 3+ rooms with furnishings, flooring finishes, lighting, and accessories.


Do you travel for projects? 

Yes! We love getting to know clients from different areas!  We are open to a limited number of out of area projects if the scope and timing are a good fit.


Do you do e-design? 

We are hoping to expand into e-design in the coming year but are at capacity currently with our other clients. We will provide updated details when we begin e-design services.


I saw something I love on your Instagram....can I order through you?

Often times, yes!  Please be as specific as possible as to what product caught your eye and we will provide dimensions, pricing, and lead times.  Most of our vendors are to the trade and do not ship to residences with the exception of lighting, wallcoverings, and a few select products. Should you be interested in ordering something that does not ship directly to you, we will need to identify a receiving warehouse for the product to be delivered to and then tax, freight, and delivery fees would apply.
