1: Ever since I was a child, I have had a love for making things more beautiful. While lots of little girls were styling Barbie, I was redecorating her house and making furnishings and accessories with anything that I could find. I believe that because we did not have a lot of material things when I was growing up, I was encouraged to use my imagination and creativity to design what was in my head. This turned out to be a tremendous blessing. I was "green" before it was cool to be. As I grew older, I developed a love for interior design. My design philosophy is quite simple; use what you have when you can, but make it unrecognizably fabulous when you are done. It is such a thrill to transform something plain and ordinary into something magical and useful. It is also essential that one's personal space be organized and purposeful, as well as aesthetically pleasing. Any home or business renovation can be intimidating and overwhelming at times. It is my goal to make the design process as enjoyable, exciting and valuable as possible. I pride myself on being budget-conscious and work hard to pass any values that I find on to my clients. I thoroughly enjoy working with and teaching my clients. It is a great privilege to be part of making one of their most valuable monetary investments, their home and/or business, not only more beautiful, but more personal, functional and enjoyable. | my design philosophy | Kathleen Hildebrand Interior Designer/Visual Artist
