KATHY OVIATT- Owner, Lead Designer

With over twenty five years of experience, Kathy still finds every project unique and continues to enjoy demystifying the design process for her many wonderful clients. Rather than focusing on a particular trend or style, she works to create casual elegance and individuality - while maintaining close attention to detail.

Working with clients' values, lifestyles, and expectations, her objective always revolves around creatively-designed, warm, environments with touches of glamour. Kathy seeks out opportunities to bring in elements that add an unexpected personal touch - making the space pop with color, reflecting the distinct style of a client, or in some way defining the space as something special. The end results are timeless spaces that possess the essential feeling of livability.

While her focus is on residential spaces, Kathy’s broad range of design projects include many commercial projects as well: retail stores in Park City, day spas, a spa-like medical wing, orthodontists and other medical offices, executive headquarters, and a large family house boat - among other projects.

As a long time member of the American Society of Interior Designers, Kathy maintains high levels of professionalism and credibility. Kathy has continually pursued design courses focusing on the most current design and business information. 

Paired with her creative energy, Kathy's excellence and passion for design are what draw clients to her work. After many years in the business, Kathy says she continues to find the design process a most rewarding experience.        



LAUREN OVIATT-  Senior Designer

Lauren has always loved interior and landscape design, floral décor, and all things beautiful! Having lived in the South, and also on the west coast, her design instinct combines traditional elements with updated style and current color palettes. She is constantly looking for ways to infuse glamour and individual charm into her projects - with a fresh perspective and an eye for tasteful, classic design.

After completing a degree in public relations and pursuing a career in corporate public relations and wedding planning, Lauren realized her true passion and returned to school for a second degree in interior design.

As a regular contributor on KSL’s Studio 5, Utah’s NBC affiliate, Lauren discusses innovative design trends and current applications. She enjoys being able to step outside the day-to-day and share her expertise and views on design. 

Most of all, Lauren loves engaging her clients in the design process.

“The best feeling is knowing that the clients are as excited as I am about the creative process and are eager to see each new element come together. There is nothing more rewarding than helping clients achieve beautiful spaces that are welcoming and genuine, remembering that design is in the smallest of details…adding just a little something extra.”


Lucky to have some of the best and brightest working in our offices each day - our design assistants and administrative staff make it possible for us to keep creating!
