Authentic Home did an amazing job turning my daughter s nursery into a magical girl s room which will grow with her. Kathy did a great job engaging my daughter throughout the process and giving her appropriate options from which to choose.

We hired Kathy to help look at how we might update the carpets, window coverings, and furnishings in our living room and dining room. We love the results! This is the 3rd time we have used the services of Authentic Homes, and we have always been pleased with both the process and the end product. Kathy is a pleasure to work with—she’s professional, organized, a good listener, and very able to help clients clarify what they need and want. Her services saved us countless hours of wading through…

Kathy Banak of Authentic Home was referred to me by my business partner who was thrilled with Kathy s paint choices for her home, so I scheduled Kathy based on her recommendation when I was ready to choose paint. I, too, was thrilled with the awesome results! Since then we had Kathy select paint colors and carpet for our offices, and the result is truly stunning. We have received many compliments from client visitors on how nice our office looks, and even a request to give them the name of the c…

After almost a year of trying to choose interior colors for my home and not having any luck, a friend referred me to Kathy at Authentic Home. After just an hour, I had several unique colors chosen for every room in my home that not only reflected my own personal style but complimented the character of my old home. Frustrated with the many color swatches I d painted on my wall, I was days away from going completely white. After an hour with Kathy at Authentic Home, we were able to find some ama…

I ve used Authentic Home on two projects and have been absolutely thrilled with the results. Kathy is a talented designer, accountable consultant/contractor and a complete pleasure to work with. The first time I worked with Authentic Home, it was to update interior paint + add new baseboard and crown molding. The new color palette and molding completely transformed our living space from plain to vibrant and inviting. The workmanship was high quality and completed on time. My friends and family w…

After several attempts with other companies to create window treatments for our living room and master bedroom, I was lucky enough to find Authentic Home after reading an article in a local magazine. They came into our home and helped us not only with window treatments but also exterior paint colors. Both rooms now look finished and they are warm and inviting, exactly what we wanted. We can t wait to paint the exterior of our house in the spring with the colors they helped us choose.

Kathy did a great job in helping us design our master bath. She saved us from quite a few bad decisions had we been left on our own. The bathroom turned out really fabulous and all the parts (tile, cabinets, paint, granite, closet, windows, etc) fit together really well. She was easy and fun to work with and adjusted to fit our taste. When we get around to doing our other bathroom, I will be giving Kathy a call!

Authentic Home was recommended to me by a friend when I bought my house in May 2011. I worked closely with Kathy Banak from May 2011 to December 2012 on transforming my home. Everything from paint colors and lighting and window dressings, to transforming several rooms with new layout shelving and new Carrera marble fireplaces, to complete home furnishings for a 5 bedroom home. We even installed a new water softening system sourced by Kathy! Kathy s eye for color and subtle variations of color …
