Interior Design

Long hallwayKathy Troiano Borth s a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin with a degree in Interior Design, is a licensed and registered Interior Designer and a member of ASID: the American Society of Interior Designers. She has over 25 years experience working as full time Designer.

Ms. Borth has experience in many areas of both commercial and residential design but now focus's primarily on residential design: both remodels and new construction. Most projects are in Austin and the surrounding Hill country and Highland lakes area. Many projects are vacation or second homes in the lake area. To better serve these clients in the Lake LBJ area, we have an office in Sunrise Beach Texas which is one hour from Austin.

The designer starts approximately 10 new projects per year and is involved in all aspects of the design from the initial consultation and review of architectural plans through the selection of all finishes and fixtures as required and into the final installation of furnishings, window coverings and artwork as required to complete the project. A particular strength of the designer is her ability to communicate with the contractors to insure that finishes and details are installed as visualized by designer and owners.

ThEntry spacee finished design projects always reflect the personality's and interest of the individual clients. Usually the interiors are an eclectic mix of new or newly upholstered pieces mixes with sentimental favorites and antiques. A personal favorite is recycling furniture which might have been discarded by reupholstering and restyling the piece to fit a new home or interior.

Vacation homes are a special interest of the designer and reflect the appreciation for relaxed comfortable interiors. These interiors reflect the casual lifestyle of people who like to gather family and friends for fun in their homes and create memories for a lifetime.

“ My favorite projects are those that allow me to impact the lives of people who reside in their homes in a positive way. I value the opportunity to work with happy, hopeful, enthusiastic individuals who enjoy life and want that enjoyment reflect in their homes. I help people realize their dreams.”

Services: include review of floorplan, lighting plan and cabinet layout. In addition, help determine budget for the project and design with in that budget. Selection and specifications for all finishes, fixtures and documentation of these finishes. Furniture layouts which incorporate new and existing furniture, window coverings, artwork, painted finishes and custom furniture.

Fees: Hourly design fee. Design fee estimated after the first meeting when the scope of the project is determined.
