"EK Designs has become an integral part of the building and decorating of our homes. Emmy Kolovic has the talent required to make a home out of a house.
Included in the work EK Designs has completed for us since 2016 is:
-She orchestrated the condo gut rehab in our first Chicago unit
-Her designs were so outstanding…which encouraged us to have her do our Florida guest house.
-Emmy has accomplished ongoing design in our New Buffalo, Michigan, home. Even after the project was completed, she kept that property in mind when she discovered an art piece that would complete our main living space.
In all of the design projects, Emmy has done it all with exquisite taste, including, Floor planning, Furniture selection, Shopping for accessories to complement each room and Closet design
"EK Designs takes the time to get to know the client and their taste…within the budget proposed."
Still in keeping with the clients’ favorite décor, Emmy is confident enough to suggest a new design or idea for your consideration. She has introduced beautiful pieces that stand out in our homes!
Lastly, Emmy is a hands-on person and accomplishes every inch of the project herself….which takes a lot of uncertainty and stress off of her clients.
No matter where our next house will be, EK Designs will be involved from the first planning stages.
- Michael & Karen L.
"Thanks to Emmy's expertise and attention to detail, as well as the outstanding level of service provided, our new living room is now beautiful, comfortable, and inviting space. Thanks Emmy!"
."..its exactly what we wanted!"
“We recently decided to have some remodeling and painting done at our house and found Emmy K Designs. Emmy looked over our place and made many suggestions for updating the look of it without having to go through a complete rehab. She was incredibly meticulous and thorough and didn’t miss a thing when going over her designs. Her husband and contractor, Peter, was also fantastic. He and his crew executed her vision perfectly. Even when we changed a couple things mid-way, they didn’t even blink an eye and took care of it. All in all, they were a joy to work with and their vision and craftsmanship were top-notch. We couldn’t be happier with them and would work with them again in a heartbeat!
