Go For Launch!


Some of you know this. For those who don't, I have been in the process over the last few months of developing my own design studio after having been the Senior Designer at another firm for the last 10 years. This process is so exciting, I cannot express it! I have been wanting to broaden my horizons for quite awhile now. And I have to say blogging has been a huge part of the process. It has opened up a whole new world of possibilities: networking, friendships, camaraderie, sharing inspiration. It has been such a wonderful way to connect with people all over the world.

I want to say THANK YOU for all of you that have been such a support along the way, and to all who read katiedid. I appreciate you all very much and look forward every day to your comments and thoughts.

So.....I am excited to say, with the help of a very understanding and wonderful website designer, Katherine of BKB Design Group, I have finally launched the

Katie Denham Interiors website!

It will be an ongoing work in progress as I am able to add new and better photos of the Katie Denham Interiors Studio work and more.

A very exciting aspect of the site is the e-decorating service I am offering called "kd space" . It is an Internet design consulting service I will be providing for anyone who needs a bit of design consulting to pull things together, but who may be out of the Northern California area or who is a great do-it-yourself-er.

I will be writing more about the site in future, but I wanted to let you all know that the website is up and running! I hope you have a chance to check it out.

Thank you all again!

Katie Denham, Principal of Katie Denham Interiors

I have never commented on your blog although you are on my favorites list. However when I realized you were a Pasadena girl I had to change that. Your website is fantastic and what a extremely talented designer you are. I would love, if ever in Pasadena that you would come by and meet a fan. Located at the Pasadena Antique Center.

Thank you all so much for your support! It is nerve wracking putting a website together and starting a business expecially in this economy, but so far I am busy! I think the thing I am most nervous about is the lack of photos that I really love for the portfolio section. I hope to have a better selection soon....but one has to start somewhere, right? I just want to say thank you again for all of your very kind words and thoughts.

Dear Katie,

I am also a 'silent' visitor/subscribee of your blog. I have seen your interests, your designs over time. Now, this is a moment I can not stay silent. I have gone thru the same situation; I was also on the pay roll of a design company. Since 8 years now I am my own boss. I can only say, I should have done so earlier. You will say the same thing in a couple of years! If you keep quality high and your designs fresh, there will be work out there. Speaking on behalf of the European design community -that read your blog- I congratulate you on this major step!! Looking forward to seeing you progress!
Take care and all the best,
Ron ( empelcollections.com)

Katie — congrats! The Web site is elegant and easy to navigate. And the kd space concept is superb. I salute you for putting prices out there; it's a bit scary to do that, I'm sure. But it will help all of us who might be interested, but are afraid to ask because that seems like too much of a commitment.
