"Here’s what clients & colleagues are saying..."

"I have known Mia and Cate for years and they have proven to be experts in their field; marrying form with function and creating beautiful, comfortable homes as a result. They consistently go above and beyond to turn their client’s vision into reality. Not only are Cate and Mia true professionals, but they are fun to work with!"
Thom Filicia (Interior Designer)

"Mia and Cate are creative, patient, great listeners and very easy to work with. Whether we brought them in to re-do a playroom, tweak a kid’s bedroom, or pick out every fixture, paint color and flooring for a newly-gutted house, they were true partners in helping us figure out, and achieve, exactly what we wanted. Even better, they were geniuses at giving us things we didn’t even know existed. We now have a beautiful, warm, inviting house that we love coming home to, a house that can host a crowd for a fund-raiser or a pack of kids for a birthday party or extended family for a holiday dinner. We love it here, and we couldn’t have done it without them!"
Jennifer and Bill Syken (Client)

"Kass & Associates Architects has worked with EM Interiors successfully on a number of projects. Our collaborations with Cate & Mia extend back to their work with their mentor Ellen Magen, who had also assisted Dian Boone on some of our early work.  EM Interiors adapts to both modern and traditional settings with equal ease and sophistication. We have worked in both urban and country settings. Their method is calm yet assured. It is always a pleasure to work together, with the satisfaction that the results are better than each of us might produce individually."
Spence & Laura Kass (Architects)

"Cate and Mia brought a spot-on sensibility, a much-appreciated playfulness and a meticulous attention to detail to my move from a Center City townhouse to a newly constructed condo building. They listened to my dream of a warm and inviting home in the very contemporary space. They offered ideas for how to repurpose my existing furniture and sourced unusual accessories that are a delight. The result is an exciting blend of old and new in a space that freshens my art and collectibles. Importantly, I was able to be away for extended periods during the move-in process, knowing that Cate and Mia were on top of the myriad of details that demanded tight coordination with the contractor, building manager, and moving company.”

"In the capable hands of Cate Lownes and Mia Miller, downsizing to The Barclay on Rittenhouse Square didn’t feel like a compromise - just a chance to invent.”
