Montague Design was a pleasure to work with, understanding my goals and budget completely. We remodeled two secondary bathrooms. They needed to be updated (20 years old) but because they were not on the main floor and not often used, we were conscious of our budget. Catherine had ideas that never occurred to me on how to update, upgrade. (She saw the bathrooms as part of the whole floor so coordinated colors and style to match the rooms nearby…great idea.) She had great sources, too. We kept both floors but the one was mauve ceramic (yes, mauve) and I never thought we’d come up with a design to keep it. It looks fabulous…. It may now be my favorite room in the house. Both bathrooms were transformed into lovely, updated spaces with eye-catching features. I would definitely hire Montague Design again.

Catherine has a fabulous eye for design but always keeps the budget in mind. She has the ability to take a complicated process and break it down to help her clients understand the options and make educated decisions. Her interior design service has proved its value on several of my projects over the past few years, saving me time and money. Catherine listens to the client first and foremost then brings your vision to fruition with a much better end result. As a business owner, one of my projects was refreshing my home office with new touches, which resulted in better workflow and increased productivity. I wouldn’t consider starting a new home project without bringing in Catherine’s excellent eye and services!

As a Design/Build remodeling contractor in Southwest Florida, we have been very fortunate to have Catherine. We have found her to be one of the most talented designers we have worked with. Her eye for style, color and texture is exceptional. We have found her to be very honest, forthright and fair. She listens to her clients and tends to their wishes without compromising the aspects of design. We would recommend her, without hesitation to anyone desiring her services.

DESIGN & ORGANIZATIONAL EXCELLENCE
I have worked with interior designers that are known around the world for excellence in their arena. The things that set you apart from all that I have worked with are your organizational skills and your humility in addition to your design excellence. You have the ability to work not only with the owners, architect and builder but with the trade contractors as well. You were instrumental in creating a multi-million dollar project that not only had finishes and design that are second to none but you have the ability to understand the processes involved to make the construction phase efficient. Your ability to make decisions, coordinate details, and most important your written follow up was instrumental in the success of this project.
