Kathleen Bohlken, a Seattle-based interior and exterior designer with more than 20 years experience, believes design is very much in the details. She specializes in turn-key projects, where she not only does all of the planning and design, but also chooses and purchases everything down to the last detail, including silverware, cookbooks, bedding and even planted pots on the deck.

      This attention to detail has earned Kathleen residential and commercial clients from around the globe including spas and salons, yoga centers, churches and local restaurants. She has completed turn-key vacation homes in Alaska, Sun River, Palm Desert, Manhattan and Japan as well as various projects in Portland and the surrounding Seattle area.

      Kathleen works in styles that range from Asian to contemporary. Due to her background teaching meditation and her extensive work with spas and yoga centers, all of her designs carry an element of spirituality and peacefulness.
