This is how I see a home — the design waiting to come out is a unique combination of the bones of the house and the personalities and lifestyle of the people who live in it. I also believe that everyone has a style and a particular look that they love. Many people wouldn’t know how to express it (that would be like asking you to speak in a language that you haven’t learned), but you know it when you see it. My job is to help you discover this through the collaborative design process.
I truly enjoy getting to know my clients and understanding their needs. From hourly consults to major home makeovers I work on projects big and small and budgets of all sizes. As an MBA I work carefully with clients’ budgets and timelines for project management. I also have a penchant for finding great deals, and have a fine art dealer father and other connections in the art and design worlds.
I’m so lucky to have the most incredible people from all walks of life as clients— from attorneys to physicians to creative professionals, technology and business people, and educators I get to work with such interesting people. I’m also extremely fortunate to have incredible and inspirational colleagues in the industry.
My biggest goal isto create spaces that help people enjoy each day to the fullest. I take pride in designing beautiful spaces for clients as well as providing them with an optimal client service experience.
Here are some reviews from clients:
“I am so happy that we found Larina to work on our sitting area. We moved to the area a year ago and were stuck with what to do with a small space within our family room. Larina transformed our previously unused space into a beautiful, functional space that works perfectly for our family, as well as for entertaining. As soon as Larina saw the space, she quickly came up with a number of unique concepts. She worked within our budget and found us great pieces. In addition, Larina was always unbelievably quick to respond to any questions or concerns that I had. Larina has also provided us with several names of contractors and plumbers for home repairs. Everyone she has referred to us has been reliable and provided excellent services.
Larina is a wonderful and talented, designer. She is so friendly and easy to work with. I couldn’t recommend Larina more highly and look forward to having her work on future projects!”
– Erin G, Berwyn PA
“Larina is very knowledgeable about design and was able to use that knowledge to help us design our 2 rooms in our home. She was extremely responsive to our needs and respectful of our opinions and budget constraints. Very helpful with ideas but not pushy at all. A pleasure to work with.”
– Emily B, Wayne PA
“We recently partnered with Larina to design, fabricate and install a custom drapery project. She had designed the beautiful room and called us to help her realize the vision she had for the drapery.
Larina has discerning taste and a unique design aesthetic. Her personality is so cheerful and approachable, traits that are key to building relationships with clients and colleagues.
We had a great time from concept to installation and the result perfectly complimented the room. We look forward to collaborating with Larina again. She is an amazing interior designer on so many levels!”
– Claudia Clobes, Urban Loft Window Treatments Philadelphia
“I recently did an hourly consultation with Larina Kase, she provided so many good ideas about where to move things, what to change and not change, and color schemes. Great follow up as well, sent me a document with all of the ideas presented in a great, easy to read way.”
– Joelle M, Wynnewood PA
“Larina Kase was an absolute pleasure to work with. She recently designed my living room and we couldn’t be happier with the end result. She quickly understood our style and came up with a design plan that was fresh and elegant yet practical.
Larina was mindful of our budget and offered a variety of choices for our consideration. She helped us add personal touches throughout the room which, in the end, made a stunning difference. She was professional and confident in her design recommendations, yet approachable and willing to work with some of our suggestions. We are thrilled with our new living room and would definitely recommend working with Larina.”
