We're a boutique interior design studio, located north of Boston in Newburyport, Mass. We offer full-scale interior design and decorating services for residential builds and renovations.
Where practicality and beautiful design come together, our process is incorporated to create a space that is functional, aesthetically pleasing, and designed to last. We strive to intentionally craft spaces to adapt with the seasons and grow with your home.
KSD is a trusted source when embarking on a home renovation or room redesign. We are sincerely eager to work with you as we bring your dreams to life.
From transitional redesign (using old elements with new concepts), to full-on remodeling, and adding or upgrading of existing structures, we've got you covered. We can take a mixture of the traditional and modern styles and balance with luxury, comfort, and functionality.
Together we work with your lifestyle, personal style, and unique taste to develop the visual appeal you're dreaming of. Whether you're needing a refresh in your home or you're in need of a stylized look for potential buyers
Using Sketch-Up, we can draw up custom shelves, cabinets, mouldings or any details you can name. As this software is the industry standard, you can share these plans with multiple contractors to gather quotes. We are also more than happy to help you find the right contractor for your project!
We have comprehensive experience in lighting design and layout. KSD can assist with locating high hats, light switches and outlets all the way through picking out statement chandeliers or table lamps. Our strong relationships with vendors, contractors and electricians across multiple communities mean we can take your lighting project from start to finish seamlessly.
We have extensive knowledge in window fabrications and treatments with sources for high-quality brands to bring both beauty and quality to your space. Our custom fabrication partners can also make one-of-a-kind treatments. When it comes to flooring, we have resources to provide extensive material selection as well as custom installations. We can also help source the dreamy vintage rug you've been waiting for!
Our wholesale accounts mean we can specify and select fabrics with ease. Close industry partners enable us to source any plumbing fixtures, tiles, cabinetry, stone, or other materials your project requires.
We use AutoCAD to create professional, scale drawings to plan your spaces during the construction stage. We can take walls, furniture and sizing into account for existing rooms, new builds and everything in between. We can work alongside your current architect, consult on existing architectural drawings, or even recommend an architect when the need arises.
We have an extensive list of accounts and resources you won’t find anywhere else. Our relationships with fabrication workrooms mean we can design fully custom pieces or adapt existing items seamlessly. We can also honor your existing pieces and work in beautiful vintage touches.
Sometimes it's the special touches that bring a space together and make it one of a kind. Our workroom and resale relationships mean we can craft or source the accents to perfect any interior. We can incorporate your existing pieces while helping you find special items to make your home feel as unique as you.
From drawings to styling, if we can imagine it together we can make it a reality. We work in AutoCAD and SketchUp to draw your kitchen or bath from scratch while planning your spaces to take both form and function into account. We’re happy to consult with your existing kitchen cabinet supplier, or offer recommendations.
Here at KSD we offer a variety of services that help you create spaces you want to come home to. Our design process is a multifaceted 4 phase approach that is thorough and easy enough for us to navigate your project together.
At the start of each project we have a meeting to go over your space, desired goals for use of the space, vision on the aesthetic and must-haves as well as your planned investment.
Our goal is to help you get a clear vision with where things are headed and the scope of work that will be undertaken. We share sketches and renderings of options for the space along with initial suggestions for design direction. If you have a contractor or architect, we work alongside them to measure and discuss layouts, permits and structural changes. We also go over estimated timelines for the project and discuss finishes, furnishings, and fixtures.
Signing off on the final design is the start of your project. Plans and selections are finalized and this phase now enables us to start the ordering process. We track the purchases, ensure correct placement of materials and make site visits to ensure the vision is executed.
Upon completion of construction, our team comes in and brings the vision full circle by installing furnishings, furniture, home accents and accessories. We then coordinate and execute a client walk through where any concerns and discoveries can be discussed and the solutions to solving them. We finalize the project with photography.
We believe wholeheartedly that your home should reflect you while setting the stage for your family and friends to gather and create lasting memories together. Your home should be comfortable and functional while beautiful and enjoyable.
Our style is natural, modern, and organic, and there is a special place in our hearts for blending old vintage pieces with new designs. Inspired by art, travel and telling your story through your home design, we are excited to learn about you and how we can craft your space to be balanced, refreshingly modern, and endlessly classic.
With quality and craftsmanship, we bring beauty into everyday spaces. Our experienced team of designers will inspire you to live well and intentional.
Every project we begin here at KSD begins with an in depth consultation where we assess your needs, discuss the project scope, and is also an ideal time to learn all about you while we discuss your lifestyle and to see how you utilize your home.
“In many of my previous homes, I have tried to buy pieces that achieve a vision I had in my head. Even with multiple iterations, I couldn’t accomplish the look I was going for. Kate digested my style goals and how my family needs to use each space and was able to help me create a ambiance that was exactly what I was always hoping for- even leveraging some of my favorite pieces and family air looms! Kate layered in character. Great furniture along with texture, wood work, cabinetry, fabric and lighting. ”
