Kate Thode is a professional interior designer with over 15 years’ experience across a wide range of residential interiors – from small to large, heritage to contemporary. Kate has not sought a ‘signature’ style; rather, she works closely with each client to develop a design aesthetic unique to them, creating personal interiors that will be loved for years. For spec developments, such as show homes and apartments, her approach is contemporary and refined, producing warm, modern interiors appealing to today’s design sensibilities.
As an established New Zealand interior designer, Kate can negotiate competitive trade discounts on specific areas of the design process, resulting in significant savings for her clients. Based in Parnell, the centre for interior design and design products in New Zealand, Kate is close to her network of textile, lighting, and furniture suppliers, and is supported by an established list of reputable manufacturers and installers. She not only designs beautiful interiors but has the experience to manage a complete interior project, from concept design to signing off the last supplier invoice.
