Dawn Kacey Design

Dawn Kacey transforms spaces of all sizes to meet her clients' desires and needs.  Her work delivers outcomes that leave her clients extremely pleased, while she makes the process stress-free, on time, on budget and most of all .......fun!

Transforming your space can be as simple as a fresh coat of paint or as involved as a full gut and re-build. No matter how big or small your renovation or staging plans are, I have innovative ideas and resources to help you get your home where you want it to be.


Our collaboration begins with a complimentary meeting which lasts about an hour. At this time, I listen to what your wants and needs are then discuss what I think would be our best approach in working together. At the end of the consultation you can decide whether or not you want to commit to beginning your project at that time or wait until you have a chance to think things over and perhaps talk to my references.


• Design, Space Planning, Decorating & Staging
  My rate is $95 per hour which I bill at the end of each month. A retainer fee of $285 is due upon commencement of your project and is credited at the final billing cycle. Payment can be made by check or PayPal.

• Quick Consultation
  Just need a few ideas or a sounding board to get a project rolling in the right direction? Call me. I can come by and spend as much time as you need brainstorming your dreams. The fee for my time is $240 for up to two hours of consultation. Any time over the two hours will be charged at $95 per hour. This fee is due at the end of our session together. Because you only pay for the short time we spend together and do the legwork yourself, it's a smart way to get a transformation started in your home while staying on your budget.


The fact is, even the smoothest renovation project runs into snags. And nothing takes the fun out of a project faster than spending a lot of time and effort smoothing them out. That's why it makes sense to hire me. By paying a small fee, you can eliminate 100% of the hassles. Thanks to the wonderful relationships I've developed with contractors, plumbers, electricians, handymen and more, I can coordinate everything that needs to be done from start to finish. And when those inevitable glitches crop up, I'll be there to resolve them. That means you'll get to enjoy all the fun of the transformation process with none of the aggravation!

My goal is to help you achieve your dreams and help you do it in the most comfortable and affordable way possible.
