TESTIMONIALS

Dr. Patricia Hudgins MD

Emory University | Mayo Clinic

Over the past 15 years Kathy has helped me with 5 renovations...Kathy designed a state-of-the-art kitchen that connects to a beautiful sunlight filled breakfast room.  She helped me update a family room that now includes a stone fireplace, vaulted ceilings and a built-in bookshelf.  She designed a screened in back porch, taking a rotting old deck to essentially another room.  She helped me transition to the Master-on-Main concept...updated a connecting bathroom...and a boring foyer.  Kathy respects your budget....I have learned to take a leap of faith when working with SUNDOG DESIGN STUDIO...while I often can't envision the end product, I trust her completely.  She took time to learn about my family, our tastes, lifestyle, and what would work for us...with her affordable design, our living area is now breath-taking, and makes a statement.  This home is now contemporary and classy, with a warm, peaceful feel.

Robert Woods DDS, AAID

Smilescapes Dentistry
I've learned how important it is to have a professional like you help in the entire process of a project.  From design and construction all the way to completion.  The little things make all the difference...
Then there's the time savings...Redesigned the space to be functional and aesthetic...Managed the project from start to finish, allowing me to continue seeing my patients, uninterrupted, during the entire process.

I appreciate all the help you have provided on the projects you have done with me.   I've been told by dental reps it is the nicest office they have been in and the patients love the place.

Debra Byrd | Tom Sukalac

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
We had some very vague ideas about renovating our kitchen and living room and knew we needed professional help.  Kathy asked all the right questions to understand how we wanted to live in our space and guided us to making decisions that were right for us.
The design plans she developed were absolutely incredible.  The overall functionality of our space has been increased exponentially.

​I had the privilege of working with Kathy on the award winning Center for Women and Newborns at Brigham and Women's Hospital.  Her design leadership included great analytical skills, problem solving creativity, and extraordinary communication skills.  Kathy is very talented, client oriented, operates with the utmost integrity and most importantly - is fun to work with!

Sharon and Todd Cohen

Kathy designed our basement and kitchen.  We have started with the basement and have loved working with Kathy.  We worked with her to select all the materials and finishes for our construction project.  She was very helpful in facilitating all the decisions we needed to make in regards to flooring, plumbing, tile, paint, countertops, etc.  We appreciated her efficient approach to the process and gained trust in her very early on in the process.  Kathy did a wonderful job at embracing our tastes and needs as a family.  Our basement turned out better than we could have imagined with the help of Kathy!  We can't wait to do the kitchen.

June Fischer

The Art Institute of Atlanta | Barnett and James Luxury Properties

My association with Kathy was while she served as a faculty member in the Interior Design Program at The Art Institute of Atlanta.  During the time she taught classes, her attention for detail was demonstrated thru course content, projects, and dedication to help students achieve their goals.  Kathy is a great listener and will give you more details than you really want to hear, but that is the quality that makes her the designer you want to hire.

Dalit Gal

Kathy's creative mind was exactly what I needed for my new kitchen.  She listened to all of my ideas and worked closely with me to make sure I got my dream kitchen, all while creating designs I could never think of on my own.  She occupied every inch of the space perfectly and knew exactly where to place everything.  With Kathy's help and sweet personality I was able to get the kitchen I've always wanted.
