Welcome to KADU Designs

Creative Consulting

About Us


I am very excited to be back in my hometown of Marquette, Michigan, with the opportunity to offer my design services to this vibrant and changing community!  My studio is located on the historic east side of Marquette. While I have added my creative touch to my building, I have tried to maintain the integrity of the original architectural elements. I love an historic project and hope to be able to help restore and remodel some of the east side homes. There is so much potential in this town!  

KADU Designs

will offer consulting services - interior and exterior residential, and light commercial. We are also proud to offer custom furniture and cabinetry made from reclaimed barn wood, as well as custom cabinetry made in the UP! Other products that will be available at KADU include ceramic dinnerware that is made in Michigan, area rugs and runners, made in the US, custom drapery, decorative ceramics from Door Pottery, out of Madison, Wisconsin, dried floral, art tile from Sporck Tileart, in Leelanau, MI, and colonial reproduction throws. I will also offer select faux finishes, landscape murals, and staging services.  KADU will be partnering with Creative Business Interiors for any commercial design and furniture needs.

Katherine DuVernois has a real flair and wonderful talent for designing spaces that create flow and balance. The real standout is her ability to boldly and creatively use color to bring spaces together beautifully. Katherine began working with me to select wall colors for my home remodel, a process which quickly developed into a long-term agreement to consult on all aspects of the project.We were able to communicate ideas well, and she was respectful of both my time and my particular needs. The whole process was an education in the subtleties of design, from carrying through shapes, patterns and colors, to smooth integration between different areas of the home. I am a very satisfied customer who has referred  her to other potential clients.

I hired Katherine DuVernois based on her creative mailings and her verbal exploration  of what might be best for my space. We eventually created a warm, masculine environment that meshed well with my tastes and previous acquisitions. Katherine is charismatic and I have never seen her in a bad mood. She lives creatively, on the clock and off. What struck me most, was her ability to see a color, and then match it from memory, months later! She is versatile and facile with local styles and resources, and was always prompt, kind and inventive. I feel confident in her success at basically any artistic endeavour.
