“My business graduated to a brick and mortar location and Kory was there every step of the way. She helped me understand the process and guide me through all the design elements. What I had dreamt up originally manifested to so much more and I was so proud of the space we built when I cut the ribbon on opening day. Thank you, Kory!!”

“Kory was a huge part of the team. As first time store owners, we had a vision, but needed help executing it. Kory understood our vision right away and worked fast and furiously to help execute. Eight weeks later we had a beautiful store that we can all be proud of!”

I wanted to extend a sincere thank you for your contributions to our company. The opening of iNDO could not have gone any better, and you had a huge part of that. From assisting us with design decisions to helping us pick up merchandise from stores and making sure they perfectly fit with the concept — Kory, working with you was nothing short of wonderful. You have expert taste and a good eye for beauty; that is evident throughout the interior of iNDO. Additionally, you continued to offer assistance throughout the production and implementation of the designs you recommended and were always only a phone call away if I had any questions, or needed an opinion. Not only do you have a creative mind, but you are also professional and courteous. I truly enjoyed the work we created together, and your input made iNDO nothing short of incredible.
Thank you again for everything you have done for us and iNDO restaurant.

“We are so fortunate to have Kory guide, consult, and most of all tailor our children store. From the moment we met her to talk about our concept, Kory immersed naturally and we immediately gained confidence in her taking on the project.
She is like a sister who understands our busy lifestyles and has a special way translating unfamiliar information into something we were able to relate to.
I am deaf and a mother of two young children. It was such a relief to have Kory’s expertise in tackling projects and making it fun. Kory is a gift that keeps on giving. She goes beyond with her designs and is always helpful when in need. Opening a children store takes a lot of consideration on safety and with her creative passion she made the experience colorful.
Thank you Kory for your passion, patience, and for nurturing our seed into life.”

“Working with Kory to design Honeycomb was something I will never forget. She is such a brilliant, empowering and creative woman.
The entire process from beginning to end was handled with professionalism and attention to detail, from store design, interiors, and project management.
From the moment Angela and I met Kory we felt such a connection with her and really made working together one of the most fun, exciting and rewarding experiences of my life!”

“Before I started my project I wasn’t sure that I could afford to hire an interior designer. I soon realized that Kory is much more than that and I couldn't afford NOT to hire her!
She kept my project running smoothly while I was working my full-time job. Kory was my middleman during construction and intercepted any problem or hiccup. She already researched potential solutions before I even knew there was an issue.
I was able to continue running my business and balance my family life smoothly because of Kory and that is priceless! My salon is more beautiful than I ever could have hoped for. She did an amazing job bringing my brand and vision to life and she was an absolute delight to work with. Hiring Kory was definitely one of the best investments I have made in my business.”

“I was looking for a special gift for my then fiancé, now husband, as a present for our wedding day. We have a small space in our basement that he had wanted to turn into a “Man Room,” but also utilize part of the room for storage. It was going to be a difficult task due to the size of the space and the fact that the room was divided by a large furnace unit and water heater.
Kory was the perfect person for the job. She was able to visualize the best way to use the most amount of square footage.
Kory is a color genius. She utilized art we had collected over the years to create the color scheme of the room, keeping the room personal. In the end, Kory created the perfect space for my husband to relax and have a beer with friends while organizing a section of the room for storage and tools.
Kory works hard to get to know her clients and is knowledgeable in her field and beyond.
She has become a good friend and I can’t wait to enlist her help again with future home renovation projects!”
Kelly Stoll / Webster Groves
“Kory has a unique combination of creativity and resourcefulness to deliver space that’s beautiful and functional.
In the commercial real estate industry, it’s rare to find a designer who can manage a project so well from start to finish.
Running point with the general contractor, she managed construction costs and delivered the space to my client on time and within budget.”
RYAN PENNINGTON / Savoy Properties
“Kory was integral with helping us weed through all the (seemingly) 1,000's of tiny details that went into the finishing of our beautiful new office space.
Her approach brings confidence, experience and calmness to the chaos of a renovation — plus, she’s just such a joy to be around.
In other words, if you’re considering it, just hire her already!”
Christopher Thiemet / Circa Properties
“Kory was a pleasure to work with and a central figure of the construction team. Her design plans were organized and detailed in conveying the client’s wishes. Kory was always ready to assist in any capacity of the project to ensure it was a success for all involved. Hope to work together again soon!”
Melanie Volk / HBD Construction
“I found The Hair Lab as they were transitioning into their new space that Kory was designing. To say that I am blessed to work in an incredibly beautiful space she designed is more than I could have ever envisioned for myself! She was so thoughtful about bringing to life a space where we can express our creativity, along with great function. Bravo Kory, bravo!! ”

”Kory has proven to blow our expectations out of the water! She’s extremely detail oriented and has created the perfect salon home for us and our guests.“
Nina Stebernak / The Hair Lab
“The Hair Lab is truly the most beautiful space I have ever worked in. Kory exceeded my expectations, and she really put together a space that exhibits beauty and simplicity. From the black wall our stations are set up at, to the lovely pink wall in the bathroom — it’s really a space that makes me happy to work in! Not only does she have a creative eye, she also is one of the nicest people to work with.”
Kellee Jacques / The Hair Lab
“I can't say enough great things about Kory! She was absolutely amazing.
I was in the process of rehabbing my building for my business and I had no idea where to start with design and decor. Kory swooped in and helped me narrow down paint colors and gave me the best design ideas for the space. She provided excellent examples and sources for the entire design process from beginning to end. Kory has such an enthusiasm and genuine love for what she does. She was a pleasure to work with. I would recommend her over and over again!”
