• "Working with Kathleen was beyond a dream. Her clarity, creativity and efficiency was only outdone by her taste and eye for beauty. She pulled my entire home together in a matter of weeks and below budget. I often sit in my home in awe of well it suits me and how elegant and functional it is. I love so many of the fun, unusual pieces but it was how she effortlessly brought it all together, including ensuring that everything was delivered and perfectly executed. If you want a designer who will hear you, get you and magically translate your thoughts into a stunning design and more, Kathleen is your gal."

  • "It was a sincere pleasure working with Kathleen. She has an artist's vision, which comes from not only her formal educational background, but also from her work as a fine artist. She has a sense of integration of style and color that followed through all phases of our remodel from planning, design, construction, and furnishings. She listened to what my husband and my desires were and was sensitive to our needs. Our project was a fairly large one that lasted over a period of two years, so her organization and connection to sourcing and her dedication to our project helped us make the right decisions for our home. We appreciate all her help and have maintained a friendship since our initial introduction as client and designer."

  • Kathleen performed what could only be described as a series of miracles with the interior design of my San Francisco 1880s Edwardian. From floor to ceiling, living room, dining room, bedrooms and bath were transformed into exquisite environments, tasteful yet totally livable and enticing thanks to Kathleen’s keen eye for perfection. She and her organization, Tower Design Studio, are not only artfully professional but prompt, reasonably priced and efficient. I can't recommend them highly enough! You will not regret your decision to hire these interior design experts!

  • "In the course of our 18 month 'from the ground-up' remodel, Kathleen Coady has been our inspiration and our guide. During the early construction phase of our project she helped us work with the architect to formulate both space and multiple layers of aesthetic resonance with our site, our art and our lifestyle. As our home emerged from a vague intention for something we termed 'zen modern'; with her sensibilities and masterful sense of form and color we built a working partnership that has given us a profound sense of ownership and pride while also giving us confidence in the quality and beauty of what we created. In the later stages of the effort Kathleen's network of suppliers also opened possibilities we had not even imagined possible. Unlike so many others we've known over the years who speak of their experience of 'barely surviving' projects of this scale, we loved every moment of the journey - in large part due to Kathleen's tireless commitment to excellence and her unflagging spirit and passion for her work and for our unqualified satisfaction.

    She is the best and we cannot recommend her highly enough."

  • Kathleen with Tower Design Studio was awesome in helping us to really create a great design for our home. She worked with us from the time we were evaluating architectural plans to the finishing touches and there were many things she helped us to see during the design process. I especially appreciate the laundry/mudroom she helped us create with great lockers for our four boys and good flow for all the movement that happens in that area of the home. Also, we have received many compliments on the solar tubes she suggested to bring in natural light and create a feeling of spaciousness in areas that would otherwise feel a little dark or closed in.

    Kathleen's use of color and texture really helped bring the natural world to the interior of our home and she created a stone fireplace with a natural wood mantel that is very unique and undoubtedly the heart of our home. She sourced tile, wood, stone and other materials that helped us stay within our budget, which were beautiful, ecological and practical for a home with children.

    Also, I would also have to say Kathleen and her team showed great skill in working with us as a couple and even though my husband and I have very different styles, she brought our vineyard home together with an organic elegance that both my husband and I love!

  • "Kathleen and her team completely transformed our home and our lives in ways that are so numerous that it is hard to recount them all. Her knowledge and resources are vast, her use of color and furnishing combinations are always the perfect design solutions and her willingness to push to find the right solution is always impressive. I am always amazed with her sense of color, form and space planning. Our kitchen and bathroom remodels are flawless, functional and beautiful, our furnishings are so comfortable and stylish, that I love living in my home! Kathleen is by far the most talented Designer that I have every worked with. As a business woman, she is a great intuitive, listens well, she is fair, stays on point with the budget and is prompt, responsive and professional. She worked extremely well with our contractor and brought my husband and I together on difficult decisions with grace and ease. I am truly amazed with her sense of artistry and the important details. In fact, her beautiful painting occupies an entire wall of our living room and I am blessed to have worked with her."

  • I WHOLE-HEARTEDLY recommend Kathleen and the Tower Design team. Several years ago, I moved to Mill Valley from Boston after a divorce and needed an entirely new set of everything for my first solo apartment in decades. I appreciated Kathleen's careful listening regarding my tastes and my budget, her collaborative approach to finding beautiful furniture for every room, and most of all, the final result. My condo quickly felt like MY home, and it looked terrific. Kathleen created an elegant, artistic, and completely comfortable space. You would do yourself a huge favor in working with Kathleen.

  • When my husband and I decided to completely remodel our house, the design possibilities were overwhelming. Paint colors, tiles, granite, appliances, furniture, artwork etc. I had a style in mind and so did my husband, but we were having trouble blending our ideas. We hired Kathleen and her team at Tower Design. Kathleen really listened to us and took the time to get to know us. She brought in beautiful options for us to choose from and was very conscious of our budget mixing affordable with more expensive items where needed.
    She and her team did a wonderful job blending our tastes and using some important existing pieces we had. The end result is exactly what we wanted, even though we really didn't know exactly what we wanted when we started. But what we have is a beautiful home that feels like us. Bravo Tower Design!

  • When we hired Tower Design to renovate our office space, it was in shambles. Many prior occupants had hidden or defaced historic elements and much of the space was covered in panels and dust. Kathleen and her team provided vision and practicality, along with space planning and furnishings that created an efficient and extraordinarily beautiful space to work. The remodel created unexpected spaces that are key to our workflow. A great bonus is that offices that we had not envisioned and other surprising elements provided us with comfort and joy. Needless to say, we are extraordinarily happy.
