We are pleased to showcase our friend and designer Catherine Sprod this week.
Catherine Sprod is a professional home stylist who understands that builder-basic homes don’t need to be ordinary. Designer kitchens and custom renovations are things that many of us dream of, but they are not necessarily the things that make a space exceptional.
We have had the opportunity to work with Catherine and gain some insight to her process, and how she tackles each space.
How do you ensure success when taking on a project?
"I ask a lot of questions,” says Catherine, about her initial meeting with clients. “I don’t work for people; I work with them. Finding out about people’s personalities, style, and routines is an essential part of helping people create beautiful and functional spaces."
What is the secret for changing a home from ordinary to extraordinary?
“Any space has the potential to be a great space - the key is to make it work for the people who live in that home. The things around them, the furniture layout, where and how art is hung – it’s all important – and making all those things work together is the key.”
And what does Catherine love most about her work?
“The greatest joy is visiting a client in their fresh space and seeing how perfectly comfortable they feel. I know it the minute I walk in the door!”
Catherine lives in a builder-basic home with her husband and Kate, their 11-year-old lab. She is working on a website relaunch to showcase her small space along with product resources and style tips.
