As the busy proprietor of her own company, Katy Sullivan believes in efficiency — an essential practice for someone always on the go. It’s a trait that also manifests itself in her work. Katy’s thoughtful approach to design is clean-lined yet approachable, modern yet classic, bold yet sophisticated. She loves to use chic color palettes and surprising pattern combinations but always keep true to her mantra “less is more.”
Katy graduated from the University of Kansas with a B.F.A. in textile design then immediately moved to New York City to pursue her life long dream. There she designed for Groundworks a high-end fashion forward division of Lee Jofa, attended Parsons School for Design and founded her interior design firm in 2006. Five years later she relocated her company to Kansas City and almost immediately won “Home of the Year, Best Custom House Silver Award” from KCH&G ($500K-$750K), received a feature in The Kansas City Star and her own home received a pictorial in Small Room Decorating Magazine.
Katy has worked with spaces as small as 450 sq. ft. and up to 5,000+ sq. ft. She believes each project presents its own challenge but the work is always equally exciting. To her, every client and home is unique; the end result should be a reflection of the homeowner’s personality — not the designer’s.
