A CALGARY INTERIOR DESIGNER AT HEART

Ever since childhood, Cat has been interested in interior design and decorating; arranging furniture, painting walls and re-decorating her own rooms. Growing up in Finland, she is inspired by simplicity, but with a major focus on functionality. "I am guided naturally by practicality," says Cat. I like Scandinavian design and the use of white in the home, it is calming (I love colour too). I am not a minimalist, but I try to encourage clients to de-clutter by getting rid of things not in use, and especially things you don't really like."

Cat is a certified interior decorator (CID) and a certified Interior Refiner, trained by Lauri Ward, founder of Use What You Have Interiors® in New York. 
 

Most important to us was Cat’s demeanor. She is personable, considerate of our time and very patient. We initially hired Cat to decorate a few rooms; we have now used her for every room in our home and are very pleased with the end result.
