I’ve highlighted feedback from my previous clients that you, as a potential client, might find useful when deciding who helps you design your home. (From Google and Houzz.)

I am SO grateful Kami was referred to me by a fellow realtor. She was an absolute dream to work with from the moment I met her to project completion. Quick to respond, immediately knew what we were looking for, and made the process of moving homes so easy!! I always wished I could live in a home that I absolutely loved and was proud to show off, and thanks to Kami now I do!! Just two days after closing on our home, we walked into a fully furnished (pictures even on hung on the wall) dream. Nothing is over the top, everything is just simply beautiful. Thank you Kami for creating a space of beauty and peace for us to come home to every day. We love it and you!!! I will refer you to everyone I know!!

I LOVE Kami Gray! I have had the good fortune of working with Kami many times over the last 6 years and recommend her fabulous work without hesitation. I initially met Kami many years ago when she helped me with a wardrobe makeover, have since used her to help furnish my home and referred her to many friends. Kami is efficient in her work, collaborative and most importantly has a great eye. I have complete trust in Kami and feel very fortunate to have her by my side when making any style choices. She is amazing!
I recently hired Kami to help me put together my bedroom and to hang art throughout my home. She was the best! What I loved most was that she listened to what I wanted and allowed me to be the one to make choices, while she made sure it all worked together. She gave me a nudge here or there when I felt unsure. We worked with pieces I already had and added to them. She was great at finding things throughout my home and re-purposing them to make them sparkle!
Her eye for design is more than making pretty things go together, her people skills and intuition make it so that your space reflects who you are and what you are about. The process with which she works makes it easy and fun to work with her. She communicates costs clearly and sticks to the budget so you know what to expect. I found her to be extremely generous with her time.
She helped with more than my bedroom and hanging art but also with shelves in a few different places which has made things way more functional. She is the perfect combo of having an eye for beautiful brilliant design, and practical, everyday function. I absolutely love my bedroom and all the art throughout my home. I love being in the space. After my work day is over, I can’t wait to get home! I highly recommend working with Kami. I look forward to having another project so I can work with her again.
My favorite pastime is watching HGTV, perusing home decorating magazines and scouring online websites dreaming of a day that I can tackle a large home project. Well, that day came and it was much harder than I originally thought. We purchased a 25 year-old home and needed to outfit a living room and dining room combo. I visited every furniture store in the area and just couldn’t see the vision for the room. I wanted to make sure that our room was unique but timeless at the same time.
In walks Kami Gray…I saw her website and really liked her portfolio. Sent her and email and she responded to my inquiry quickly. We set up a time to meet and look at my space and the rest is history. Her pricing is very reasonable and probably saved me money in the long run by not purchasing the wrong items. We met a couple times in person to shop but we mostly communicated by email and phone. Kami is very responsive and so easy to talk to.
She created a room that exceeded my expectations. She just has a knack for putting things together. Every time I walk in the room I feel like I’m in one of those home magazines. Pinch me, I think I’ve gone to home decor heaven. Thanks Kami!!
After moving from our starter home to our second home, my wife and I finally found ourselves in a position to build our dream home. We knew what we wanted the home to look like roughly, but had trouble verbalizing it. When a friend recommended Kami and we met with her, we knew that we had found the key to unlocking the process. Besides being a ton of fun to work with, Kami was able to get a feel for our style and help our home to take shape. She liaised with our architect and was always available to give us advice or respond to potential items that might fit our dream home. Highly recommended!

Kami designed our basement, living room/dining room on a shoestring budget and it looks amazing! She came up with tons of options for me to choose from and was fast! She couldn’t have made it easier. She also designed our entire house on the coast and it was a huge project which she tackled seamlessly. The end result is beautiful and I couldn’t be happier. While she doesn’t specialize in budget decor, she really stuck to the budget and came up with creative, cost-saving ideas which were beautiful. She is fast and knows her stuff. I’m looking forward to finding another project for her to take on!

Kami decorated and furnished an apartment for us in the Irvington area. We had a moderate budget and a short time frame within which to complete the project. Kami was amazing! She worked with us to understand our design preferences and then developed a plan including style, colors, furniture, and furnishings. She completed the project ahead of time and on budget. We love the results!

Kami Gray is an amazing casserole of talent, insight, and professionalism. All this goodness comes in a very down-to-earth package. Kami is funny, easy going, and efficient. She designed our combo living room and dining room, a uniquely shaped space. She defining spaces with just-the-right size furniture, lighting and art. And the plan was completed very fast.
On July 14th, 2015 I became a homeowner. I’ve got to start with that as it’s a hurdle I never anticipated being able to leap. It is something I have always dreamed about, but in that la-la land fairy tale way. So imagine my surprise at my complete and total designers block once I was in my house. I’m finally living my dream, yet I can’t figure out what to do with it. I couldn’t get my dining room to flow into my kitchen, my basement remodel left that space completely disjointed from the 1941 elements I loved about the main floor… and I have a thing for galvanized piping.
I came to the realization that I do not have the know how, or bandwidth, to search out design solutions and implement them. I needed someone to propose solutions, manage the purchasing and deliveries, then to install in entirety. Enter, Kami. Introduced to me by my realtor, she came highly recommended for her sense of design, creativity, and — if you meet her, you’ll get this — fantastically quirky attitude.
We walked through my house together — top to bottom, then bottom to top — discussing things I liked, loved, and those I disliked. Kami asked how I used the spaces. She asked how my daughter used the spaces. Then she asked how we used the spaces together. From here we took off on the adventure of redesigning my entryway, dining room, kitchen lighting, kitchen nook, and basement bathroom.
There was a lot of communication. At minimum, daily updates on ideas or timelines. Budget was reviewed each time a new piece was considered, added, or removed. On install day Kami and her crew arrived alongside my deliveries toting power tools galore, garbage bags, lots of coffee, and got to work. About six hours later Kami took me for a walk through, similar to the one we originally did — top to bottom, then bottom to top. It’s an amazing feeling to experience my house turning into my home.
I cannot recommend Kami more highly, she made my la-la land fairy tale a reality.
Kami was amazing to work with. She really listened to my needs and the end product is fantastic. I love her process and her ability to mix and match materials, colors, and textures for a result that we all love. She is easy to work with and is a great communicator. I have already given her name to others and I look forward to my next design project.
