Client Testimonials

Working with Kim was transformative. She not only honed in on what my aesthetic likes were, but really tapped into what I responded to on a visceral and emotional level. The decorative items and pieces not only looked beautiful in my home, but more importantly inspired me and brought me joy.

In addition to making my home look chic and hip, Kim’s comprehensive knowledge of Feng Shui also ensured that every piece in my new place was positioned in the right spot and also that that before we bought anything we were aware of the energy that the object would bring to my space. Working with Kim and her approach to design was a fun, creative and extremely rewarding process.


My place is fabulous! Every time I walk into my house I feel at peace and thankful for all her incredible hard work, creativity and impeccable taste.

Kim designed my store on Robertson blvd. Gorgeous and ethereal, with incredible attention to detail, she captured the essence of my brand while giving my clients an ambiance that was truly magical. I am currently working with her on my house and am just as happy and excited for the results.

It looks so amazing. I can’t believe this is my house!

Lisa & Tyler Bates

Composer/Music Producer

I undertook a top to bottom remodel and hired Kim. She is incredibly personable and she really took the time to get me and find a design that inspired me. Although her experience seems to be more in the area of contemporary design she was more than willing to go exotic, Moroccan, as well as industrial chic.

She pulled off an amazing fusion of styles that completely captured my aesthetic. My house is a gem, my friends all rave about it, and I’m planning to build a guest house on the property. Without a doubt Kim will be designing that as well.

I can’t even tell you how blown away I was by Kim’s vision. She is so good at what she does! She worked with pieces I had and moved them so they made more sense and the pieces she added I loved. She listens to you and almost channels your vision, but sees things you would not have thought of. She is a great talent and has great ideas and she is a delight to work with. I always recommend her to anyone that is looking for a interior designer with a little something extra!

Pam Froman

Owner, Pam Froman Jewelry

I can’t tell you how THRILLED I am about the design you created. It is better than I imagined. It is truly beautiful! I can’t wait to get in there every day to just be in such a gorgeous environment! You truly captured the essence of what I was envisioning. I hope we get the chance to work together again!

Gail Pekelis

Owner, Woman's Physical Therapy - Beverly Hills, Santa Monica & Encino

Kim and I have successfully worked on several projects. I believe this reflects her integrity and personal ability. She knows her stuff, always has lots of fresh ideas and really gets the feng shui flowing. She goes the extra distance to do a complete and thorough job. It’s been a while since I had my home refurbished with Kim and I still love all we did. More recently we have been working with my new design studio. I feel fortunate to know Kim all these years.

Melissa Robke

Owner, Hairlo Inc

Our living room is AMAZING. Everybody says our place looks like a tv show gave it a makeover – so that makes me very happy!  Kim is really so gifted. She gives personalized attention, is a great listener, a perfectionalist yet flexible, and has a great sense of style.

Jodi B Wise

Clothing Designer/Actress

More than just a surface remodel, what Kim does is trigger awareness of something that before you didn’t know how to get to – awareness of your space. Then awareness is backed with functional, doable, ‘get started’ plans – like a doctor saying, start by eating more vegetables, tomorrow, and then get more complex from there! Kim’s talent is to gracefully bridge the functional and the personal, helping a client discover that relationship between their self and their space. That is how homes become beautiful and magical.

Amely Greeven

Co-Author of the book “Clean”

Kim’s approach to space revitalization was a truly wonderful process of discovery. She came up with smart solutions that would generate better harmony in our home. She really takes the time to get into one’s psyche, targeting certain objects from the past that can inhibit one from moving forward to achieve feeling more grounded, focused and above all, inspired. We are grateful to her.

Meredith Roberts

Owner, Art Is In Food

I was astonished at how different the room felt. Thanks so much. Your generous gift far exceeded my expectations.

You have a wonderful combination of design, understanding of energy in the home and how that all impacts a person, home and our family. I think that you came up with beautiful plans for every aspect of our home today. It is clear to me that it will be what we wanted, and more!

Ron Hamad

The Feng Shui class was beyond what I was expecting. The depth of information from many different perspectives I believe makes this a unique, insightful and powerful course. Kim did an excellent job of meeting me where I am with my knowledge and learning style. I love the flexibility of the course and hands on approach.

Elizabeth Shopland

Owner, Nature Inspired Living , Certification Residential Feng Shui Student - BC Canada

I absolutely loved the balance between science, design and metaphysics…between cerebral and soulful. I appreciate the balance between things that can be flexible and elements that must be addressed. Kim is a wonderful instructor – freely flowing between conversation and instruction while keeping all the content educational.

Hillary Metz

Owner, Blythe Projects, Certification Residential Feng Shui Student - Los Angeles

Kim’s knowledge of feng shui is extensive. She has an intuitive way of working with people to help them make changes they weren’t able to imagine before. I am also enjoying our class. I am learning so much.

Dr Bonnie Tauber

Clinical Psychologist, Consultation Client + Certification Residential Feng Shui Student - Los Angeles

I loved the personalization and the transparency of the class. The incorporating the body parts related to health and home was an additional bonus. The shamanic astrology was an unexpected surprise as well. The reference notebook shall be treasured. Overall I am very satisfied with the course and look forward to potential teachings from Melinda Joy (Kim’s mother and founder of Shambhalla Institute).

Kristine McCraren

Interior Designer, Certification Residential Feng Shui Student - Michigan

Kim has worked on three of my spaces. Her feng shui and space planning skills are exceptional. Her work has changed the quality of my life and helped my business grow. Her sense of style and creativity are inspiring.

Suzana Palaic

Interior Designer, Consultation Client - Los Angeles

I was amazed at the power of their feng shui. I tend to be a skeptic, but first having Kim come to my home and do a consultation and then taking her class has made a marked difference in the way the space feels, how I feel, and how my life has shifted. As a student I learned an array of tools. The class gives you the knowledge and the opportunity to better your life and others.

Tara Platt

Actress, Author, Producer, Consultation Client + Certification Residential Feng Shui Student - Los Angeles

I didn’t want to repaint my walls or even move much furniture. The changes were subtle. The house almost immediately felt better to me, also a number of people who had no idea that I had done feng shui commented that the house just felt more inviting. There has been a noticeable bump in my business. I decided to work with Kim and have her design a bed. The bed made the room (I love that bed). Simply put, I can’t recommend Kim enough.

Mark Halper

Photographer, Consultation Client - Los Angeles

Kim has helped me shift the energy in my life and two different homes. Her intuitive insight has helped me make changes in my life both great and small which I will be forever grateful

Dana Congdon

FIlm & TV Editor, Consultation Client - Malibu, CA

During the time of construction Kim made sure that all the color choices and room layouts were harmonious. Kim and her mother, (founder of the Shambhalla Institute, where Kim teaches feng shui) are full of guidance and inspiration. They provide many ways to improve your life and your space. Through taking workshops or private sessions you will tap into emotions and creativity that can help you become the person you want to be.
