"Working with Amy was an absolute joy! She made redecorating fun and I love waking up every morning to spend another day in my beautiful space! Life brought me to Kansas City even though "home" is Pacific Northwest. Our townhouse in the suburbs is a great location for my family. However our middle unit lacks natural light, and the dated Tuscan colors and decor were dark. As well, the space was open but small, lacking kitchen cabinets, counter top and sufficient space for every day living and entertaining guests which was something I loved to do. Amy did an amazing job transforming the space both functionally while making the space feel uniquely mine, reflecting who I am with pieces of the Pacific Northwest that bring "home" to Kansas city for me! She brought light into the space with light neutrals, reflective surfaces and bright LED lights. She thought of key structural changes, like doubling the size of our kitchen island to add both cabinets and counter space for entertaining. As well she brought creative solutions to enlarge the living space with additional seating for company. All the while staying within our budget and making it worry-free for me. Amy is both an artist and a professional with a critical eye for detail and customer satisfaction. I found the whole experience incredibly valuable and the end result surpassed all my expectations! I am now engaging Amy to help design my mother's flat in Vancouver Canada! "
"Amy Krause provided incredible service to us in the remodel of our kitchen and family room. She guided us from the development of the plan to every step along the way. She went with us to help select items such as the sink and faucets, the new appliances, and advised on paint colors. The furniture selections she identified were excellent but if there something we weren't sold on she was always very open to searching for alternatives. Once we got to the phase of choosing accessories her creativity was impressive and the choices wonderful. We felt like she gave us personalized attention and her friendly and warm personality made the experience enjoyable. We would recommend Amy to anyone considering making changes both large and small. We wont hesitate to use her when it is time to start another project. We are big fans of her work and consider her a friend. Yea Amy!!"
"I highly recommend Amy Krause Design for your interior design needs! Amy does a great job listening to your likes / dislikes as well as providing guidance. She will be very conscientious of your budget. My husband and I have hired her to design the majority of our home and couldn't be happier. We love our space and get so many compliments. Hire Amy Krause Design. You will not be disappointed! "
"I hired Amy to help me decorate my new home. I basically started from the beginning, as the style of my new home is quite different than my previous home. Amy listened to what I envisioned and helped me pull together the look I wanted. She has come in at or under budget throughout the project (and I even added a room not on the original budget). The furniture, rugs and accessories she offers are high quality and look amazing in my space. In a time when everyone turns to design websites and DIY resources to do their decorating, I have found it a joy and a pleasure to have the expertise of Amy's design background and amazing style. You cannot beat the personal attention she offers and the experience of working with a true professional."
"Amy has a great eye for design! She was able to bring great ideas to complex situations. I would highly recommend her!"
"Amy has been a joy to work with. We updated our town home and we ended up replacing all the flooring, painting everything and replacing the furniture. She listened closely to what we liked and didn’t like. What we ended up with was better than we could possibly have dreamed of. Now that the kids are gone we are ready to entertain or just relax In the luxury of what feels like a brand new home. She has the best connections for everything from faux painting a kitchen side board and hutch to the most wonderful place to buy unique rugs for our new hardwood floors. It was Amy’s vision and hard work that made all this possible."
"Amy Krause did a spectacular job with the interior design of a condo conversion project in Westside Kansas City area. A former area supermarket was remodeled into 3 individual condominiums and Amy captured the essence of the neighborhood delivering a hip, urban feel blending the best of the original structural features like 20' ceilings with modern open space design. The minute you walk into the space you are hit with the kitchen as the highlight of the living area. Amy is able to combine the basic technical expertise you'd expect of an interior design professional with a flair for the latest trends in interior design. Amy laid out the entire kitchen workspace complete with a giant island ensuring that workspaces met industry standards for comfort and flexibility. Custom cabinetry was specified that delivered maximum functionality of the space available. By hiring Amy the entire project came together without incident. Everything went together as envisioned and the finished product delivered the WOW factor we were looking for. If you are considering hiring an interior designer you can't go wrong with Amy. She is conscientious, technically adept and has a good vision for what the end product will look like. She is easy to work with and I am quite confident that if you engage Amy you will not be disappointed."
"It was a wonderful experience working with Amy on the interior design of our main living spaces (the living room, kitchen and family room). The project turned out beautifully. My husband and I have different styles and initially found it difficult to come to terms with which direction to go. Amy is very attentive and easy to work with. She assisted with all the major decisions, seamlessly blending our two style preferences. Even when we could not agree on the plans, she was very patient, and provided suggestions that we both were agreeable with. As an added bonus, we were able to incorporate some of our existing furniture into the redesign plans. I really liked that idea. They look great with the new - as if they were special orders specifically for the design. I appreciate her expertise, professionalism and easiness in working with her. We look forward to continue to work with Amy when we tackle the next phases of our projects."
"Amy has helped me think through some large spaces in our church building. It is not easy to be creative on a budget with expansive spaces while tying in themes and feel from other parts of a large building. Amy did a great job accomplishing all of this. She is easy to work with, listens well to the problem, need, or desire, and then finds resources and options to create possible solutions. I will have Amy "on call" for future needs. "
