My design work is based on refining key elements of scale, color and texture to create warm, comfortable, ambient spaces. Being a Libra, I migrate toward symmetry and balance and clean lines, however, I often like using big scale in architectural elements, furniture and patterns to create drama or alter visual proportions. I also love to introduce sophisticated color palettes and sumptuous textures on walls and fabrics to add richness to a room.Christy Kohler is a Philadelphia-suburb native, currently Principal and Visionary of CK Design Inc. and married to Kevin Kohler, Chef-Proprietor of Cafe Panache in Ramsey , NJ. Christy holds a Bachelor of Science from Southern Methodist University and an Associates Degree from New York School of Interior Design.
I work hard at the beginning of a project to learn the details of how the space is used, both commercial and residential. I key on levels of formality, practical use, resale considerations and (of course) budget. My design terms can be versatile to fit the project, anything from hourly consulting to renovation or construction management. The best rewards of my profession are to see people "happy" in their homes or work spaces and know that my work helped create that feeling.
"Being designers ourselves we were hesitant to work with an interior designer. Christy was able to capture our vision while simultaneously bringing her own talents to the table, which enhanced our vision even further. Our office feels like home and looks incredible because she worked with us. Everyone who comes into the space loves it just as much as we do. Christy’s work speaks to her personality; caring, very attentive to each detail and completely committed. She really puts in the effort to stay within the budget while producing top quality design work."- David Annunziato, thinkdm2
