"We hired Katie to help us design our retail juice bar location in Durham, NH. We were looking for a fresher look that was rustic but inviting at the same time. Katie listened closely to our ideas and did an amazing job translating that vision into a work of art. We were so happy with her design work that we have now used her on 2 other projects. Her rates are reasonable, she is very reliable and she is a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommended her services!"
–Alex Vandermark, The Juicery Owner, Newburyport MA, Durham NH and Portsmouth, NH
"Katie was absolutely amazing! We wanted to remodel our 20+ year old contemporary and had no idea where to start with design and decor. Katie came in and was so easy to work with. She knows where to find the right products and materials that blend both style and comfort and has an exceptional eye for color. I appreciated how accessible she was and how quickly she responded and rectified any issues, always staying within our budget. We began the renovation with our two living rooms that have been transformed into beautiful spaces looking 2X the actual cost. More importantly, the design she chose will stand the test of time, not going out of style 10 years down the road. Katie made me feel super comfortable even though it was the first time working with a designer. She has great vision and creative ideas. We are eager to work with Katie again on a full basement and kitchen renovation."

"In 2016, my husband and I moved from a 1400 sq. foot apartment in Manhattan to an over 4000 sq. foot home in Portsmouth, NH. Needless to say, we had a lot of rooms to fill! After a brief, disappointing experience with another design firm, we talked with friends and colleagues to find a design firm we could trust. Enter Katie Goodrich of Ivory & Bone Interiors! We don’t have a “style” that is easily categorized but Katie was able to expertly discover the design aesthetic we were seeking. The process was highly collaborative, which was very important to me. She is patient and dedicated to find just the right pieces at the right price point. I’ve sought her input when I’ve found items on my own and that has been invaluable. Katie helped us furnish and decorate 6 rooms and we’re currently working on transforming our outdoor space. I couldn’t be happier with the results so far. I really enjoy working with Katie and highly recommend her."
–Kellyanne McCue, Portsmouth, NH
"Big fan of Ivory and Bone. Katie is a smart designer who did a great job for both of my restaurants in the last two years. Her ideas were in line with my brand and she found really interesting ways to incorporate lighting and texture throughout both restaurants to really make them shine. She is flexible, full of great ideas, helpful, and a blast to work with. She also worked well with several of our other vendors on collaborative projects that were part of our overall design, which was a huge help. Highly recommend her and will definitely work with her again!"
–Deepak Diwan, Owner of WuBurger, Cambridge MA and Woburn MA
"Working with Katie allowed me to take a big exhale. I had a bunch of ideas but I didn't know how they'd fit together or what the next step should be. Katie helped to create cohesive clear vision for our home. She helped me delete projects that would cost more than the value they would add, and to add a few projects that wouldn't cost much, but would make a big difference in the overall feel of our home. She's well versed in how to optimize the look and feel of every space.
We are still in the process. I can't wait to see what the "final" product looks like. An added bonus: Katie is caring, fun, funny, and of course has an innate sense of style."
–Sarah Tacy, Cambridge, MA
"When we purchased our house just over 10 years ago, we knew that we'd eventually want to redo the kitchen. While it was nice, it just wasn't our style - and we spend so much time in it! We finally decided to go for it & enlisted Katie of Ivory & Bone Interiors to help get it just right. Katie was fantastic to work with from start to finish! We had some thoughts on what we wanted & Katie supplied endless ideas as our design evolved over time. She was extremely receptive to feedback & was always conscious of our budget when proposing new ideas. We're so happy with how everything turned out & we're so thankful for Katie's dedication in helping us get our dream kitchen!"
– Jennifer Tramontana, Newburyport MA
"Katie's approach is very creative and incorporated our current home furnishings in a combination with her ideas. Her design services helped transform our home by using furnishings we brought from the West Coast with a fresh, modern look by adding some additional pieces, rugs and carpeting juxtaposed against a blend of different art. I highly recommend Katie."
–Marcia Alden, Charlestown MA
"My wife and I have worked with Katie on two large interior design projects and are thrilled with the results. She has a clear point of view about what a space should look like and how it should function, and she skillfully blends her vision with client input and tastes. She is conscious of budget and transparent in pricing and approach, and is incredibly responsive and available to her clients. Large projects are a significant investment of time and effort for all involved, so at the end of the day, you need to work with someone that is knowledgeable, inspires confidence and is easy and fun to work with. Katie is all that and more. She makes your home more functional and beautiful than you would have ever imagined. Five stars (and more)!"
–Alex Gramling, Newburyport MA and Kennebunk ME
“I was more than halfway there with my paint, lighting, furniture, and accessories but my space didn’t feel quite “finished” –I needed a final step and I knew I couldn’t accomplish what I needed to by myself so I contacted Ivory and Bone for a consultation. My job wasn’t a big one, but Katie and E were so responsive and engaged and genuinely enthusiastic that I felt like their only client! Not only did they make very spot-on and thorough concept boards for me, they were absolutely lovely and professional to work with. I also recommend following their blog for more ideas and just for fun!”
– Erin Lockwood, Newburyport MA
“Katie is so talented – I loved working with her from start to finish. She helped us design a few of our neglected bedrooms and turned them into rooms with personality so fitting for each of our three kids! Throughout the process, Katie was so warm and responsive – whether it was via email, text, phone or in person…she was always there to help. She is so creative and truly has a unique sense of style with an edge. She presents you with a variety of options and ideas at affordable prices. If you are looking for style and creativity you definitely wouldn’t be disappointed!”
– Julie Christie-Padden, Newburyport, MA
“I purchased my first home earlier this year and Ivory and Bone has been absolutely instrumental in helping me transform the house into something that I love. I had never needed to buy quality furniture before and didn’t give much thought to the layout of my previous apartments. Just the thought of furnishing and designing an entire house on my own was daunting and overwhelming. Katie came in, got an idea of what I liked and what I didn’t – and then helped me make that a reality. She’s been involved in just about every single detail of the process – what color paint for each room, what type of sectional sofa to get, ideas for maximizing the back yard. She even helped me with remodeling decisions…before I even moved in. She’s creative, resourceful, responsive and most importantly easy to work with. I can honestly say that without her help, I wouldn’t be nearly as happy as I am with the way everything has turned out. Can’t recommend her enough!”
– Brendan Fitzgibbons, Dallas TX
“In a world with Pinterest, home decor magazines, and plenty of inspiration everywhere, it was great to have a focused plan for our home. We have three competing styles, mine, my husbands, and our Airdale. Katie did a great job in merging those three styles, giving ideas to bring in new elements all while keeping the house streamlined. Now when I am out shopping at a home store or even at a yard sale I now have a sense of what “fits” in my home. That’s a priceless gift!”
– Ellen Fleming Clark, Salem MA
“From the beginning, our experience with Ivory & Bone interiors was amazing! We knew right away that Katie’s Unique style and vibe would be a perfect fit for us. She provided a level of expertise that gave us such confidence in our decisions. She listened to us, narrowed the selections and walked us through the pros and cons of each choice without pressure. The end result of our new home is an incredible expression of our family & lifestyle. We highly recommend her services, we couldn’t be happier!”
– Bryce & Mary Jo Anderson, Newburyport MA
“I am overwhelmed by decorating. Fashion I can do. I can spend hours putting together different looks in my head, but when it comes to decorating…my mind goes blank and I shut down. I don’t even know where to begin! Enter Ivory and Bone Interiors. The incredible interior design team from my hometown of New England. They TRANSFORMED my tiny studio in the West Village of NYC. I am a teacher so you can imagine that I am on a tight budget. They knew all the places to go for a great find without sacrificing quality, I was amazed! We got a leather chair from Urban Outfitters, gigantic frames from Homegoods and a chandelier from a warehouse in the lighting district. I splurged on a rug from Pottery Barn, because like fashion, you always need a good staple! I would say the best part about working with Ivory and Bone was their patience and work ethic. They took the time to shop with me and figure out what I wanted. They helped me find my sense of style and elevated it. They have impeccable taste and aren’t afraid to push you outside of your comfort zone. I can’t tell you how many compliments I get from my friends in NYC. They are all dying to work with Ivory and Bone. Thank you girls for not only helping me create a home that reflects my style but creating a space that I can rest my head after a long day in this hectic city….you are the best!”

"Katie is a pro! Her sense of style and eye for layout and design is exactly what anyone looking for an interior designer could ask for! And on top of it, she's so easy to get along with!"
