Adaptability in each project and a genuine relationship between designer and clients sets Katie Grace Designs apart
For Katie Rees, her career inspiration began with her Aunt Faith, a talented designer in Kansas. Katie calls her “the spark that lit what was always inside me.” That spark eventually led to Katie Grace Designs in 2011. Exclusively working in Northwest Arkansas for the first five years of business, Katie recently expanded her clientele to central Arkansas and across the state.
Katie Grace Designs is often noted for its adaptability to each project and client. With her work varying from partnering with architects in the initial design stages to one-room remodels, Katie highlights how every project is unique. “Every contractor and every client is different, and each new project requires that I adapt my style accordingly,” Katie says. “One of my primary roles, and differentiators, is collaborating with each in a way that ensure the client is comfortable and stress free.”
Katie emphasizes the significance of the relationship between her as a designer and her clients–one that goes beyond a simple contract. “After a year of collaborating and working to help them script some of their most intimate spaces, the relationship oftentimes morphs into a true friendship,” the designer says.
