The element of color comes into play in almost every decorating decision you make. From walls to windows, all vertical and horizontal surfaces interface with light and each other. If you ignore this, at some point, it becomes obvious that your inspired project doesn't feel quite right... too bright, too blah, too sharp too something. Your room isn't singing to you, or if it is, after all the labored investment of time and money, its still slightly out of tune.
An ARTFUL LIVING consultation is much more than choosing wall colors.
In all design projects, one wants to achieve a space that is attractive, comfortable, dynamic, and fits the way you live and work.
Many of you have fabulous ideas but simply need an editor, a sounding board to integrate or expand your vision. While the contractor is dealing with the bones of your project, the design expert focuses on the finish materials and furnishings. Your vision can then come into form, thus creating a space that you, your friends and families or clients will enjoy and appreciate in the years to come.
A trained eye from the onset, can eliminate costly mistakes and provide the comfort and confidence to move you forward with your decisions. Most of us find things that we love and find beautiful but are challenged by what to say no to and what to say yes to.
My individual approach is this. I marry practicality with beauty and function. With a background in feng shui, I am keenly aware of balance and fluidity but not misled by superstition or hype. I work with a broad range of projects. No matter the size, each space has its own blueprint for being more than what it currently is. Interiors should match your life. As you change, bring your interior along with you! Our services include:

- QUOTE: Gabe Gesmer/Kentfield “ I give Keatin credit for the quick sale of my home for asking price. I will continue to recommend her”
- QUOTE: Janine Higgins of Corte Madera - “From a large Tiburon home to a hillside condo, this was not an easy transition. Thanks to Keatin, when my boys returned from college, they said this place felt more like home than any other house we’d lived in. I agree and now love the NEW FIT of my new life!"
- QUOTE: Edie Block of San Francisco - "I recently moved from San Diego to San Francisco. I downsized from over 2000 square feet to 900 sq. ft. My new apartment needed to be totally renovated from the walls being smoothed and redone to brand new flooring everywhere. The bathroom had to be totally gutted. Keatin was introduced to me by my daughter-in-law. Keatin is terrific with color and expertly supervised the entire project from paint, to lighting fixtures, to vanities, to flooring, window treatments, down to details like draw pulls and closet handles. I am totally pleased with the space she helped create. Keatin is a pleasure to work with. She made a project that was almost impossible to do long distance, feasible. I absolutely love my new home."
A Chinese geomantic system used to determine the beneficial or harmful nature of land or buildings on humans. Although the Chinese form of feng shui has been most popularized here in the States, all cultures practice their own form of geomancy. Feng Shui has taught me to approach space with new eyes and a much bigger breath; a tool I carry with me everywhere.
