Kate has been involved in interior specification & design in the Bay of Plenty for the past 6 years. Her philosophy is simple, to add value to projects through creativity within budget, in close collaboration with the client and the architect. This provides a delivery of service that is independent of the supply chain and results in spaces that are inspiring, comfortable and, most of all, workable.
