Owner Kathleen Bliss Goldfarb, ASID, NE Ohio’s top interior designer, is in a class by herself.

She is the area’s only award-winning design professional with more than four decades of both residential and commercial design experience AND she is also the area’s only owner of the world’s leading decorating and design franchise. Best of all, she is the only designer who offers you this breadth of experience, top credentials and a stellar record of customer service.

Kathleen offers a full spectrum of interior design services throughout the Valley and NE Ohio area, often to elite, clients such as CEOs, healthcare professionals, financial executives, retired military officers, global business consultants and others.

She is proud to have been awarded NE Ohio’s only Decorating Den interior design  franchise. Her affiliation with the world’s largest and longest-established design and decorating franchise enables Kathleen to frame design solutions and concepts from the broadest possible perspective. This saves time, mistakes and money while navigating the best-vetted furnishings options for you among an endless maze in the retail jungle… where daily enticements and urgency abound and hijack the casual consumer’s wallet with oft-regretted “bargains.”

Kathleen has earned a reputation for outstanding customer service, and two thirds of her business continues to come from personal referrals. Many clients have had her design multiple spaces, entire homes and their places of business, serving some of them for decades, including their grown children and relatives.

Clients and colleagues laud her “great passion,” “off the charts diligence, follow-through, expertise and know-how,” and “comprehensive vision and excellent taste.”

Prior to converting her company to a franchise model, Kathleen ran a highly-successful independent design studio, managed the interiors group within a leading architectural-engineering firm and was a successful designer with several major retailers. She has also gained invaluable experience working on commercial projects with prestigious clients as Case Western Reserve University, Goodyear Aerospace Corporation and various banks, healthcare providers, government agencies, accounting and law firms and other professional entities, large and small.

Kathleen, a consistent recipient of numerous design and sales awards, has her photos and articles featured in design publications nationwide throughout her career, within the HGTV enterprise and most recently, her work has been selected for inclusion in “Love Your Home” the sixth design and decorating book written by Carol Bugg, ASID, published in the spring 2017. She is a popular speaker who presents programs and workshops on topics such as emerging trends and materials, home automation, historic preservation and sustainability practices.

A professional member, former officer and board member of the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID), Kathleen has served as a 5-year trustee of the Cleveland Restoration Society and as a former Editorial Board member of Window Fashions Magazine. She has participated as a 4-time Designer of ASID Showhouses, in several local philanthropic benefits and is an International Dream Room winner. She earned her interior design degree from Miami University (OH), receiving NCIDQ design certification in 1979 (National Council of Interior Design Qualification) and regularly attends the High Point Furnishings and other industry markets, as well as many continuing education courses and new product trainings.

The Valley Design Team | Decorating Den Interiors is a proud award recipient of the Best of Houzz 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019 and member of the Chagrin Valley Chamber of Commerce.
