Cathy saved me from living for the rest of my days in a sea of colour chips and random colour samples on just about every wall.  She is a wise guide through the labyrinths of decorating indecision.  Thanks to Cathy we now have a great colour scheme for our little space - it is classic, warm, and just right for us.  I thank you Cathy for your professionalism, your talent, and for your ability to get things done quickly.  And of course your sense of humour. 
With heart,

We have known Cathy for several years - having been a customer at her retail store in St. Andrews. As customers, we always found her to be very pleasant and knowledgeable. We recently were clients of her decorating business. Having known her from her retail business and seeing her talent in action, we had no hesitation in going to her for advice. Cathy assisted us in decorating our Living room/Dining/Kitchen (great room). She made recommendations for paint colors, selection of drapery materials, accessories, hardware and also furniture arrangement. She shopped, found material, had draperies made and found hardware. Also her husband, Tom, installed hardware and he was very meticulous. Cathy is very professional, organized and works quickly. She always seems to have good taste and is very resourceful She is conscientious of her client's wishes. We were very pleased with her work and we are very satisfied with the atmosphere she created in our home. We highly recommend her.

I had never worked with an interior decorator before I met Cathy, so I was unsure of what to expect and nervous of what she might suggest. My fears were completely unfounded - she made me feel so comfortable, gave me many choices, and did most of the leg work of finding suitable fabrics, accessories and furnishings. She pulled everything together! A room that had looked mismatched and out of style, now looks like a million bucks - and for a very modest sum of money! Cathy is a creative force, and a delight to work with!

Walking into Ivy Lane was at once fascinating and rewarding. Cathy's taste of both simple elegance and refined timeless beauty made it easy to visualize her merchandise right in my own house or in the homes of friends for whom I would buy gifts. Both practical and affordable, Cathy's ideas are fun and easy to incorporate into a variety of interior design styles. We are indeed lucky to have such a class act in our small town.

Cathy has an innate ability to achieve an ideal balance of colour, warmth, comfort and function.  The outcome seems perfect and, as a result, her homes are most desirable!  I highly recommend her to help prepare your home for sale or to simply create a whole new look for you and your family.
