I initially entered the design arena in the Bay Area by "renewing"
residential interiors. This service utilized the homeowner's
existing furnishings and accessories which were then rearranged
and displayed in an aesthetically-refreshed and spatially-organized
floor plan. This included identification of design deficits
whereby suggestions were outlined to complete the space.
I eventually returned to my hometown where I founded Kate
Crowston Interiors and have been operating as a design consultant
for over 15 years. I've been involved in many projects
around the state as well as assignments in the Bay Area, Reno,
Las Vegas and Seattle. I participated in the first Spaces.now
Decorator's Show Space in the historic 19th-century
Voorhies Mansion which I project managed the rejuvenation of
the dining room.
