Splendor in September

Mansion in May Designer Showhouse and Gardens is the preeminent fundraising event of the Women's Association for Morristown Medical Center.

This was our second project with Katja and, like the first, it was completely stress-free.  This time, she handled our kitchen refresh project, from design to execution. On an extensive project such as this, it’s hard to know what the next step should be or who to rely on to do the work, but Katja makes it all happen seamlessly, and her connections to top-quality craftsmen are invaluable.  To say that we are pleased with the experience and our new kitchen is an understatement.

 We worked with Katja and her team on our much needed kitchen, home office and laundry room renovation.  She completely transformed our space in ways we couldn’t have imagined on our own. It now feels so much larger and brighter AND we have all the storage we desperately needed. Her attention to detail made the entire process as stress-free as possible. The rest of her team; from the contractor to the cabinet maker were a pleasure to work with and shared the same professionalism and attention to detail.   We couldn’t be happier and look forward to working with them all again on future projects.

“As an architect, working with Papyrus Home Design has been a pleasure. Katja is a team player with incredible ideas and excellent taste. My clients love her relaxed, fun, and inspiring approach to design and detailing.”

“Katja has a gift for learning just enough about who you are to help you define how you would like to experience your home.  She then applies her creativity and her expert understanding of design and layout  to  help  you discover possibilities you would never see otherwise.  Once we decided  to purchase our home,  engaging Katja to help us maximize its potential was the most important investment we could have made.  The challenge  we face now is deciding where to sit at any given moment, since every corner of our house is so inviting in its own way. Katja has helped make our home the place we most love to be! ”

“Hiring Katja was the best money we ever spent”

  Kim and Brent B., Morristown, NJ



First time I hired a designer... best decision ever! Katja asked me to trust her... well, that's hard for a "type-A" person like me, but I'm so glad I did. Not only did she and Nicole create something beautiful, they made home renovation such an enjoyable experience. I really appreciate their expertise, patience, and fun spirits. Looking forward to doing more together.
