A native Oregonian, I started my Interior Design career as a Design Associate for Neil Kelly Company in 1991 and specialized in cabinet sales with their Signature Custom Cabinet line.
In 1995 I became a Certified Kitchen Designer with the National Kitchen & Bath Association.
I’ve had three kitchen and bath designs featured in The Street of Dreams and Tour of Remodeled Homes.
Check out Hamilton’s Appliance, 19790 SE McLoughlin, Gladstone, Oregon 97027, and you can see four functional working kitchens on display that I designed.
My name is Susie Buchanan and I am an interior designer and have worked with Carol on numerous design projects for cabinetry and layouts for kitchens and bathroom spaces. We have been associates and friends through NWSID for over 20 years. She is an amazing designer and is so great to work with! She listens well and is always accommodating no matter what the project entails. Her resources are always great and she always stays on top of her people she works with to help make the project happen.
We often reflect on our past projects together and continue to work and grow nicely together. My clients always so appreciate her and enjoy getting to know her as one of my teammates. I highly recommend her to anyone that is doing a kitchen, bathroom remodel, or fireplace wall with cabinetry. People like her, are what makes my world go round and helps me to achieve all my goal for my clients. She is Awesome!!
Celeste Le Duke, owner of Designing Women, has been creating beautiful spaces for a wide and diverse clientele for over 35 years. She enjoys each and every project — from a simple color consult to working on large projects with CEOs.
"I look back through all the jobs I've done, and all the people I've had the blessing to work with, and can't think of one that wasn't special," she says. "When you work with me, you're going to enjoy the trip!"
Fun, confident and professional, Celeste puts her big personality into guiding her clients toward expressing their personalities through their living spaces. Designing Women believes in designs that are not only beautiful but also practical, and should uniquely fit each client.
Celeste's exacting vision comes from a harmony of experience and intuition. "When I get goosebumps, I know I've made the right choice," she says.
Designing Women celebrates the home and all of its new and traditional uses so that Celeste's diverse array of clients feel secure and comfortable, and aware of all of the opportunities their home has to offer. "Interior design is not only for people with a lot of money," Celeste says. "Sometimes just a little color consultation can transform our environments."
