Why Choose Us?
What makes us different
Well-made home furnishings that are beautiful, functional, in your desired materials/color AND fit your exact space are impossible to find ready-made. We’re here to make sure that your space is custom-made just for you from start to finish… that your space truly reflects you.
Custom home furnishings utilize techniques that are tried and true. We are educated and well-versed in quality fabrication techniques. The details aren’t just the details- they’re everything.
We have excellent client satisfaction. Our clients return to us time and again for a reason.
We’re here to make the process easy and enjoyable.
We are professional. From start to finish, you will be treated with respect and kindness. You are our priority. It’s as simple as that.
We are committed to bringing you the best available materials and design options. And in order to do that, we continually pursue the latest educational opportunities as well as memberships in professional associations. Our professional development brings better options, better skills and better connections to you.
Our process begins with a phone consultation to get to know each other as well as to determine your needs and wants.
We meet with you in your home for your convenience. We also need to measure your space- whether it’s your windows, bed, shower, etc. Exact measuring is critical to a great fit!
This is also the time to ask questions and get to know each other- to find out if we’re a good fit. We’ll further discuss what you’d like to see. We’ll listen to your needs and wants, offer professional recommendations and return to our studio to draft up a plan that meets those needs and wants.
Designs and Fabricate
Once you’ve approved a plan, we’ll begin fabrication. And we’ll provide weekly updates so you’ll know where progress on your project stands. And of course, you’re always welcome to reach out with questions in between progress reports.
Install day is always exciting! It’s the icing on the cake. And I love a reveal!
Installation does, however, take a little bit of time. There’s take down of existing window treatments and other soft furnishings as well as pressing, dressing, etc.
And installing window treatments is a profession in and of itself. You want to make sure the hardware installed lasts. That takes education, skill and practice. Our installer accompanies us and completes all installs that include window treatments. He and his team are conscientious and extremely careful.
What They Are Saying
Two and a half years later and one cross-country move, each piece is still a part of his room and in great condition. Our favorite piece, Beckham’s little man tent, serves as a great hide and seek corner, reading nook, or just fun spot to cuddle with stuffed animals. It is definitely a must-have item!
Donna and I have worked together for years, spanning 7 rooms, Christmas tree decor, and other side projects like weddings and baby showers. We have moved from little girl baby accessories for my two and onto to “big girl rooms” that they can grow up with. She repurposed my girls baby crib bumpers into the most gorgeous coverlets and made accompanying curtains and pillows. The work itself along with her eye for details are fabulously original and sentimental. A beautiful and heartfelt combination for little girls turning into little women.
Her most recent work was a quilt of shirts from my late Father, a treasured Christmas gift to my Brother. To have someone with the ability to envision a project THAT close to your heart, and make sure each stitch is perfect is immeasurable in both words and cost, and she embodies that with every project she does.
Donna Johnson of lulu kate designs is a master of all things sewing! She made our new cushions for our outdoor furniture and we absolutely LOVE them 🙂
Donna was informative from the choosing of the fabric through to the design process, Our cushions are a perfect fit, and thanks to Donna, we are enjoying our ‘Happy Place’ outdoor patio every day😍.
I would trust her with any of your decor project needs!!
Donna recently designed and created an amazing bedroom and bath for my 14 year old son. She listened carefully to what my son wanted and with thoughtful planning came up with the perfect design for a young man coming of age: classic bedding with masculine accent pillows along with a cozy weighted comforter and duvet; our family crest embroidered on his shower curtain: and an electronic bathroom shade! All of which gave him a place that is truly his own and so comfortable!
He was so pleased with the finished product and very proud of his new room that he now makes his bed EVERY DAY- I consider that a decorating miracle!
Donna is truly excellent at her craft!
I worked with Donna on a pillow design for a nursery. I provided fabrics in the colors I wanted to use and showed her a picture to take inspiration from. She created a couple of designs that I could choose from. She then did a sample and we tweaked it a little. The final design was outstanding and more than I could have hoped for.
Donna was so professional and easy to work with. She is so creative and really has an eye for good design. I highly recommend working with her on any embroidery project you might have. You will be totally pleased.
I have worked with Donna Johnson of Lulu Kate Designs for over three years on numerous projects with my clients via long distance.
I have chosen to work with Donna exclusively since the quality of work is better than anywhere else I have sourced embroidery work. While I may not be familiar with embroidery work to say what the difference is specifically- it is evident when you see it. We know high-end quality when we see it in this business.
The distance has not been a problem. Donna has a system and current software that makes it very easy to communicate and verify you are getting what you have designed for your client. Shipping costs have been minimal considering the quality I have received with Donna. Without hesitation, I can say Donna is the best for high-end custom embroidery.
Donna is extremely passionate about the details. Of course, her work is always grand and beautiful, but her eye for the small, intricate and seemingly subtle details is what makes her work shine– or in her words, “pop.”
It could be a covered button on a curtain, a piece of detailed piping in “just the right shade” or some flare or fringe you didn’t expect to like originally that becomes your favorite part of the finished project. I always, always, always trust her advice and have never been disappointed.
I am a soft furnishings designer and fabricator. Over the years, I’ve had embroidery done for some of my client projects. Once I met Donna Scott Johnson of Lulu Kate Designs, I knew she was special.
Her mind sees and creates over the top embroidery designs like none I’ve ever seen before. Not only does she see the designs, but she is also able to then digitize the designs to then embroider these on fabric.
To call her creations embroidery is an understatement. Donna creates works of art with her embroidery designs.
