"Kate is amazing! She prepared our house top to bottom, craftspeople, lighting, curtains, small decoration details and even bedsheets. We were in Brazil and we literally walked into a house we have never been in before, all set up for us. I’m so grateful. She is organized, down to earth, friendly and very helpful."

"Kate worked with me on refurbishing my Victorian flat in Richmond. She was great to work with, responsive and imaginative. She made excellent choices for paint colours, carpet, wood flooring and tiles, that complemented the flat. She worked quickly to help me meet a deadline, and went above and beyond in researching options. I highly recommend her and would definitely use her services again in the future."
- Laura Brash, Houzz
"We would like to thank Kate of Khaya Studio for the interior design of our four bedrooms, lounge and dining room, kitchen and foyer including porch. She designed and project managed throughout the 10 week delivery programme in such a way that all disciplines had hassle less interfacing carrying out their scope of works.
Since the works completed in November 2021, we have had a number of relatives and friends who have commented that who ever did the interior design and delivery must be an expert and very experienced.
The excellent service provided, we would recommend to any one who would like to change their house and make it feel like a home with minimum hassle and within a budget you can afford."

"The ideas and designs that Kate provided were instrumental in deciding how best to renovate my house. The way she showed how the the living areas could use walls, particular furniture, light and specific appliances really helped me consider the options that would work best. I’m an accountant so not having the skill set to properly understand the options was limiting. Kate really opened my eyes to the possibilities and I’ve ended up in a much better place. Highly recommend!"
- Steven Skinner, Houzz
"I would highly recommend Khaya Interior Design. We had recently fully renovated and extended our Victorian property but had not given much thought as to how to actually use the spaces once completed. Khaya gave the rooms purpose and made them function seamlessly into our lifestyles. They worked closely with us in order to bring our personalities into the home and make it feel our own. They were instrumental in helping us choose colourings, floor finishes, lighting, artwork and furniture. The eclectic mix of antique and new furniture is exactly the look we were striving to achieve but couldn't have found without Kate's expertise and hands-on approach. Being time poor, it was also important that the project moved quickly and was managed efficiently which Khaya always ensured - minimising the impact upon daily lives."
- John David, Homify
"Kate gave me some great advice on how to approach an awkwardly shaped, north facing bedroom. This included furniture placement, warming colours, how to draw more light into the room, and other ways to trick the eye into seeing the space differently. I had spent months thinking about how to deal with these issues, yet in minutes Kate gave me solutions I’d not considered. Approachable and professional I’d definitely recommend."
- Alisha Newman, Houzz
"Khaya Studios helped us to bring our ideas to life. Given we were making structural changes to our living area we thought it would be best to make sure that we had a professional eye cast over our ideas. We were so glad that we did! With some small (but impactful) suggestions we will be able to create a beautiful living area."
- Sherileigh Sherwin, Houzz
"I found the process of working with Khaya very inspiring. I had my own ideas for my home but with Kate's resources and input the whole project became far more interesting. I would recommend highly. Respecting the environment is important to me and Khaya are in line with my thinking."
- Lindsay Beaton, Design for me
