As Nina had worked with me previously I knew she had an understanding of our needs so I hired her (for a good price!) to manage our office relocation from the town centre to a rural stately house. I asked her to use a combination of good interior design in conjunction with her feng shui expertise. She used her common sense and showed awareness of budget constraints. She organised the project so that timeframe were adhered to and the deadline was met. Nina has a flair for design and suggested unique ideas whilst keeping everything in tune with the surroundings. She has a hands-on approach and is friendly, approachable, reliable, professional, and handled everything in an inclusive way. She was also always available on the phone if needed to discuss any issues.
Ita Horan - CEO County Enterprise Board (Tipperary)
I saw Nina’s web site on the internet. She was excellent in recommending colour schemes to fit in with the existing building and with the local environment. However, what I found most helpful was her ability to suggest and recommend styles and products which are unlikely to go out of date. Nina can offer an ‘all inclusive’ service right through from design stage to placing furniture. She strongly believes in getting the best value for money for her clients and insists on top class workmanship. She has experience and knowledge of all aspects of building and in fact I would be very confident in having Nina supervise and design a project from beginning to end.

INTERIOR DESIGN PROJECT
Nina was recommended by a friend. I didn’t have to agonise any further about what matched what, and she saved me some money by avoiding buying the wrong things. Nina added the feng shui element as well as being excellent with colours, textures, shapes, materials. Also, I liked that she used my existing furniture and rearranged same. She has a sense of humour and she needed it! She nicely and politely suggested to me that some ‘naff’ stuff needed to be done without! She was very reliable - she never cancelled. She has excellent good taste. She was patient with me too as I couldn’t download a reference web site and she patiently sent it to me a few times. I found her to be a sympathetic co-ordinator of household effects.

BUILDING PLANS DESIGN AUDIT
I was looking for an interior designer experienced in feng shui to give us guidelines for renovations and extending our house. I found Nina on the internet and was very impressed by her portfolio and experience. Her insight and guidance enabled us to gain clarity in how we planned the project in terms of layout, use of space, lighting, etc. This was very useful both before and after our plans were drawn up and helped us in working with the builder, kitchen and bathroom suppliers. We are certainly looking forward to the finished article. We cannot compare Nina to anyone else but found her to be very friendly, efficient, practical and helpful and we no doubt will have a few more conversations before the project ends.
Aine & Tim H (Dublin)
FENG SHUI CONSULTATION (HOME)
I checked online for feng shui practitioners in Ireland – Nina’s web site was very striking and the testimonials on the web site were very positive. When I spoke to her on the phone, she was very approachable and sounded kind! As well as the feng shui tips Nina offered around the house, she gave a lot of practical suggestions which have all made a big difference. Many changes were subtle and I could make them straight away – I like how the house feels and the energy in it. She also provided many contacts and information which saved a lot of time. I think Nina is very personable and engages very well with people. She also reads people very well and I think she tailors her advice to suit. She’s also very helpful long after the consultation and has provided a lot of follow-up assistance via text/SMS. Gentle, energetic, positive, relaxed – the hours passed by very quickly during the consultation, it was informal and made the discussion very comfortable and open. Nina had suggestions for even the trickiest aspects/angles of the house. She brings a fresh mind-set and ideas. She is an energetic, kind, caring and talented feng shui consultant who does her utmost to obtain results.
Paula K (Westmeath)
INTERIOR DESIGN PROJECT & SHOPPINGI did her interior design course and loved it! I was convinced that good interior design at the start was a means of not making mistakes that proved costly with the interior design of my own first house. In classes, Nina showed passion for interior design and I could see that she was going to do a good job. I could see after the classes finished that it was going to be a worthwhile expenditure on design services to help me with my new build. I received good training on the interior design course, and regarding design services I trusted Nina as she understood my needs and use of space very well. I felt I could leave it all to her! Nina took account of my budget, tastes and needs. She is a very professional lady. Her price was reasonable and I was easily able to see how this paid off in getting my house designed. I’ve very few regrets thanks to good planning. In terms of appointments Nina was flexible to suit my needs regarding work and family. She was willing to make site visits en route to other appointments. She gave me plenty of tips and didn’t waste time and equipped me with ideas. I also enjoyed our shopping trip.
Carol O'D (Waterford)
BESPOKE DESIGNI had attended Nina’s interior design classes and was most impressed with examples of her previous work. I also felt that Nina had an innate ability to understand what I required and desired, and to incorporate both into a unique design. Working with Nina was a very relaxing experience. I also felt that she was open to individual input from the household, and dealt with any changes quickly and effectively. I could not have expected anyone to formulate a design as appealing to the eye or as unique as Nina achieved. I would also like to highlight the amount of time Nina spent outside of office hours to ensure that the design was executed with precision by all contractors on time.
Joan H (Tipperary)
FENG SHUI CONSULTATION (HOME)I was very interested in feng shui but I felt I needed an expert on the subject. I wanted to enhance my living space through this fascinating practice and Nina was my first and only choice. Nina’s advice ensured I reaped the benefits from applying corrective measures to my living space. She was very personable. She was also ‘present’ which I am only now realising. She is very passionate about the subject. She has a wealth of knowledge about feng shui and interior design. She was extremely professional and spent a lot of time with me. The process was fascinating, thoroughly enjoyable and fun! Nina gave me some very sound advice on how to deal with these. She was like a life coach and agony aunt rolled into one. It was a most illuminating day. I felt a great sense of relief and joy and I feel things are going to turn around in a powerful way. It was a great pleasure to meet Nina and she is probably one of or even the most important investments I’ve made in all the years I have been on this earth.
Niamh G (Co Louth)
INTERIOR DESIGN PROJECT & SHOPPINGI was looking to update my sitting room and bedroom without spending a fortune. I didn’t know where to start so I contacted Nina as I had attended her class and really liked her style. Everything she has suggested for my home is truly amazing. Nina gave my sitting room and bedroom a whole new dateless update. She picked out colours, curtains, carpet, furniture, lighting, etc. and saved me so much time and money and looking around. She is like a one stop shop. It’s amazing what she can do with a few subtle changes and the difference it can make to a room. I felt Nina worked with what I had and what I wanted. She listened to my suggestions, took my lifestyle into account and didn’t impose her ideas. She spends so much of her time putting plans together for a colour scheme. She is definitely the best and I would highly recommend her without hesitation.
Ellen K (Waterford)
BUILDING PLANS DESIGN AUDITI had been to a workshop that Nina gave and found it very interesting, and I was very interested in using the principles of feng shui in our home and as we were building onto our home it seemed like the perfect time to start. We had plans drawn up for the extension on our home by an architect. We showed the plans to Nina and she pointed out some different ideas and changes that we made to the plans. Looking back we are so glad we made these changes. Also, she planned out the rooms on paper and it has all worked out so well. Her ideas on the layout of the room made the flow in the room very easy. We had two different architects draw up plans for us before but they never went into the detail that Nina did with us. She gave us great advice, right down to appliances and where to get them. She understood our needs more than anyone we had spoken to before and was able to transfer our ideas onto paper.
Trish & Joe B (Tipperary)
BESPOKE DESIGNI met Nina when I attended one of her feng shui classes. So when we decided to redecorate our bathroom we called Nina in. Nina did such a super job that when we decided to redecorate our living room we just could not go ahead without her expertise. On both projects we were more than pleased - she gave us two rooms beyond our wildest dreams - superb. Nina put the schemes together for us from start to finish. She introduced ideas we would never have thought of and she worked with our likes and dislikes. Nina gives you all the time you need to make up your mind and she doesn’t mind some chopping and changing. We brought Nina in again - this time to makeover our kitchen and we can’t believe the results! I have no hesitation in recommending her as we were and still are more than pleased with our new look.
Kathleen H (Tipperary)
INTERIOR DESIGN PROJECT & SHOPPING
I was in a rut - I knew my sitting room and kitchen needed a re-vamp, but where to start? I had heard about Nina and decided to give her a go. The best call I ever made, and when you only have 2 weeks holiday.. Nina got so much packed into a day. I would never have had the time. Nina was a treasure. She saved me so much time and money. A real treasure - she made little changes that made such a difference; moving a table, rearranging pictures and just super at picking perfect paint colours. Nina really listens and gives you great suggestions without taking over. I feel I am finally on my way to having a home for me, and I now look forward to coming home. Thank you Nina!Breeda M (Tipperary)
FENG SHUI CONSULTATION (HOME & BUSINESS)
We have had a number of unfortunate/unlucky events occur in our lives. Having moved into our current house approximately 10 years ago, it constantly appeared as though we were pushing water up a hill without much luck. We knew we needed to change the energy in the house. Nina explained to us in very reasonable terms that there were energies in the house that were working against us. She then explained and gave us direction as to how to correct so many different areas. Things have begun to change already. Nina has a very non-judgemental attitude. She was very confident in her ability and therefore gave us complete confidence in her to help us. This enabled us to have a clear vision of our course of action. Nina had a wonderful way of explaining things to our children which ensured they were on board with everything that we needed to do, and this made the process so much easier. I felt relief, vindicated, empowered, as well as in control and that a weight had been lifted off my shoulders. We have run into hiccups with changing our home but Nina had thankfully explained that this was more than likely going to happen which made us so much more determined to get the job done. She really explained the process so well to us. For me at the time I met Nina, she was a life saver! Thank you Nina - I hope this meeting will have been the first of many.Elizabeth C (Dublin)
DESIGNER MAKEOVERI felt that Nina really listened to me and therefore was the right person to advise me. I liked the idea of combining interior design and feng shui, and just had a gut feeling that she could help me to achieve a stylish home. Nina had so many simple ideas about switching around furniture and curtains, which made a huge difference and items already in my house were moved to other areas where they had more impact - and there was no expense involved. Talking with Nina that day made me think about interior design in a completely fresh way. I’m now making changes to the décor of my home (with feng shui in mind) as the budget allows, and adding personal touches. Her knowledge of feng shui and her advice will remain with me always. After her visit, I have a notebook full of her ideas and am constantly referring to it. Nina is a perfectionist and very professional. She has great design knowledge and is aware of budget restrictions. I would recommend her in a heartbeat!
Annemarie C (Co Louth)
INTERIOR DESIGN PROJECTSWhen I visited the show houses I was most impressed with one in particular. It turned out to be the one Nina designed. As it happened she was there also that day and I was introduced to her. I asked for a ballpark figure of the likely cost to fit out a house to a similar standard. I got a forthright response and was impressed by her obvious professionalism. Nina had done an amazing job on the show house so I thought if she could do the same again I would be more than pleased. Nina dealt with all aspects of the project. The experience she had working on RTE Show House was invaluable as she knew all the pitfalls. She was able to make improved design changes to the construction of the house. She prepared all specifications for joiners, tilers, electricians and plumbers. In addition she designed the layout of the en-suite bathrooms and the kitchen and the positioning of all light fixtures throughout the house. She ensured that all work was carried out to the highest standard and to specification and made the contractor redo work when necessary. Nina sourced all fixtures and fittings, including bathrooms, kitchen and lighting and all flooring, tiles, window treatments and furniture throughout the house, and made certain that the best price was achieved. I felt Nina was very much in tune with my requirements and her experience on similar projects could not be overlooked. The unique perspective brought to the project by her extensive knowledge and experience of interior design coupled with her understanding of Feng Shui has resulted in the creation of an amazing home where the emphasis is on relaxation and rejuvenation.
Paul K (Waterford & Dublin)
FENG SHUI INTERIOR DESIGN
You transform people’s lives. Your confident presentation of suggestions/ideas helps people to see consider things they never had considered before – and then as you walk them thru the changes and assist and guide and ask every step of the way, it’s easy to take your ideas on board – and be pleasantly thrilled at the “transformation”. You often give new life to things discarded in a box or considered “junk” and also help people get rid of things they’ve ignored or had around for a long time that don't serve a purpose. Most importantly, you ALWAYS find a home for items that people truly value – often for sentimental reasons not monetary value – even if it doesn’t really “fit” into the look/result you were aiming for. The changes you help them make leads them to want to do more. It’s an evolutionary process. You get great value when you shop (or bring people shopping with you). You get quality at a good price and you don’t spend for spending’s sake. For instance, something that can be bought at TK Max rather than Brown Thomas and still hit the mark perfectly. You do the same type of shopping for your well-to-do clients as for the ordinary ones like me! The comments from my friends on the ‘before’ and ‘after’ and their reaction to the transformation is more of a head swivel than for those of us that go thru the process. They see the before/after and are astounded! Not only by the better look of the space, but the FEEL of the place. The effect of decluttering has to be felt to be believed!!! It is SO transformational.

FENG SHUI CONSULTATION (HOME)
Tired of being in a rut, smothered by my personal junk and possessions, exhausted from trying to find the right remedy for me, I finally found my answer - Nina Kati. In one consultation she waded through my house, knee deep in both personal and material clutter, helped me formulate a plan that helped me to identify what it was in my life and home that needed to be stripped away, disposed of, appreciated, or highlighted. In a very tactful and kind manner, she pointed out what was good in my life and what was holding me back. Together we worked on a plan that would release me from the weights in my life, replacing this with clarity and direction so I could happily move forward and live the life I wanted. This plan of action applied to my home and to me personally. I now have a home that I can enjoy living in the short term and I now know what to do with it in the long term. I also now know myself and what I really want out of life and how to achieve it. Nina's most powerful tools are both her personal approach to the task in hand as well as to the overall situation, and how she translates feng shui principles, making them simple, easy to understand and to straight forward to apply. In summary, Nina helped me to transform my life. Her experience, wisdom and guidance left me in a better place. With the added pressure of the recession and all the associated negativity, I’m relieved that I met Nina when I did and her guidance has been an invaluable tool since.

INTERIOR DESIGN PROJECTS
We commissioned Nina to work on several projects. One of which was our kitchen, a room that was very drab and dark and was badly in need of updating and brightening. We called Nina in as we had used her expertise with great satisfaction for other areas. Nina transformed our kitchen beyond our imagination! It is now an awesome bright contemporary kitchen, where we spend much of our time. We just love it, and it is all and more than we could have asked for. Our latest project was the transformation of our hall, which was dark and dreary with a big Georgian staircase taking up too much space. We had an idea what we wanted to achieve but needed assistance with a design. Nina arrived and gave us options that we would never have thought of. We now have a spacious well-lit hall with a magnificent contemporary stairs. We are so pleased - thank you so much Nina!

INTERIOR DESIGN PROJECTS
Nina helped us to convert our kitchen into a bright, sophisticated, comfortable, functional space. She also worked wonders in renovating our holiday house. She made it into a relaxing, happy seaside home. It has been a huge hit with our guests. We also commissioned Nina to work on another coastal property where she converted what was a difficult space into a most charming and (more importantly) a functional home from home.Catriona (Co Galway)
FENG SHUI CONSULTATION (HOME) We found Nina in the Golden Pages and as we were very interested in feng shui, we decided to give her a call and make an appointment. Nina is quick to observe the layout of a house and gives expert guidance. She offers a variety of easy and practical tips. Her pleasant, calm and patient approach is very reassuring and exceeded our expectations! I would have no hesitation in recommending Nina for whatever task is required. She brings positivity to those she helps and has certainly brought an abundance of good luck to me as well as other family members. Mairead and Family (Cork)
INTERIOR DESIGN CONSULTATIONWorking with a new build is very difficult as sometimes it’s hard to know where to start with colours/fabrics. Nina took the stress out of the situation because of her vast experience in feng shui and interior design. She is very straight forward and if I were to give her a job title it would be ‘Working Wonders’! No-one else could do the same for me as she did because she combines feng shui with interior design to find the perfect balance. There were no hiccups and she was always willing to take a call after the appointment to lend her advice.
Liam P (Co Louth)
INTERIOR DESIGN PROJECTS AND SHOPPING Nina brings balance and harmony to a project and is extremely sensitive to the needs of her client. Nina was totally focussed on the need to prepare our house for sale. The first lady through the door bought it immediately she viewed it. Nina brought such professionalism, dedication, talent and sensitivity to the project. Her application of relevant interior design and feng shui principles was outstanding. Only Nina could have a vision of the final result and have transformed a cluttered 35 year old bungalow into an amazing home which we were very reluctant to part with after her extremely efficient guidance.
Riona G (Tipperary & Galway)
INTERIOR DESIGN PROJECT AND SHOPPING I hired Nina because she was the most local interior designer to where I am located. She saved me time and money, and helped me avoid mistakes. She made me aware of all the options available, gave me the confidence to proceed with decisions, and she helped me choose items to suit the overall look. She gained my confidence and trust and she understood the overall look I wanted as well as what I liked.
Catherine N (Waterford)
INTERIOR DESIGN PROJECT & DESIGNER MAKEOVER Nina was recommended to me by a friend as I was finding it difficult to manage the decoration of my home. She has put the heart into my home. The décor is subtle, pleasing and homely. She understood how I felt about my house and the difficulties I was experiencing in bringing the house together into a pleasant living environment.
Catherine D (Tipperary)
INTERIOR DESIGN PROJECT While standing in a square room 14 x 14 and not having an idea of what would work well, a friend walked in and said you should ring Nina. From our point of view she was thinking outside the box. Great ideas and suggestions that we would never have thought of actually now seem obvious. There was no need to look for anybody else. We are extremely happy with the service provided.
Mag G (Waterford)
INTERIOR DESIGN PROJECT From our initial meeting with Nina we were impressed with her professional approach to advising us on the new sitting room scheme. Nina guided us through and assessed the choice of materials and colours available through her trustworthy suppliers. The room’s décor was changed from dull and dark to a timeless scheme and a relaxing place in which we enjoy spending time. From her first visit to our home we have enjoyed Nina’s friendliness and looked forward to her return visits. Through her professional advice and services she has enriched our home.
Stella & Eddie C (Wexford)
INTERIOR DESIGN PROJECT I chose Nina because having discussed with her the problem areas in my home that needed fixing I felt confident in her abilities to come up with creative and practical solutions. Her confident and professional approach to the projects, and she brought about great changes and enjoyment in the adjustments carried out. One of her many skills is that she spends time getting to know her client’s style, tastes, needs, etc.
Anne D (Waterford)
INTERIOR DESIGN PROJECT I was impressed with what I saw when Nina was on RTE’s ‘Show House’ programme. Nina greatly helped us with her guidance at a point when we were struggling to make correct design decisions and as a result our indecision was stalling the project. She provided a well thought out comprehensive service suited to our taste and aspirations and also kept in mind our budget. I can’t say if no-one else could do the same. However, Nina combines her knowledge of feng shui with interior design and I appreciated this informed advice and guidance. Her calm and efficient personality was also a joy.
Cathy O (Offaly)
INTERIOR DESIGN PROJECT Having taken part in a course on interior design directed by Nina, I was greatly impressed with her innovative approach to the entire spectrum of designing a room taking in every aspect of same. She also consistently displayed tremendous enthusiasm and interest in the subject. Her suggestions on colour schemes, texture, lighting, flooring, etc. proved to be very harmonious and peaceful. She left no stone unturned to ensure that the clever use of light and blending of colours resulted in a very satisfactory result. Nina has obviously built up a very extensive portfolio of knowledge and expertise in the area of interior design.
Vivien McA (Tipperary)
BUILDING PLANS DESIGN AUDIT I met Nina at an exhibition in Waterford some years ago. She was friendly, informative, knowledgeable and really enthusiastic. A perfect combination! Nina brought a different but well thought out coherent perspective to the projects we have worked on; her input seriously enhanced the projects. She possesses a self-belief and conviction that is refreshing and heartening. Her dependability is reassuring.
Liam Ryan-Architectural Service (Laois)
DESIGNER MAKEOVER I recently retired so I was going to spend more time in my home and I knew I needed an interior designer because I had areas of my house that were not working for me and I needed to get the whole house to work as effectively as possible as a complete unit. Nina has a professional eye with lots of experience to see beyond the problem areas. She listened to my particular wants and needs and she had the knowledge of where to look for the required items to update the house and make improvements to it. She has accumulated experience and an eye for detail.
Clionad B (Kilkenny)
FENG SHUI HOUSE DESIGN & SHOPPING Nina was recommended to us by a friend in an arts centre in South Tipperary who said she was a really lovely lady! We had some previous experience of Feng Shui and felt it would be good to have someone to help us from the very beginning before we even started the building of our house. We are so glad to have had Nina from day one to help us in the design itself and the interior décor including soft furnishings, paint colours and lighting. She offered fantastic information that really helped us create a relaxing, functional and beautiful home. Through her service we saved money, time and unnecessary design and selection mistakes. She is confident and good humoured, and her service is professional and incorporates practical aspects too. Her warmth, friendliness and honesty are all part of her desire to do her very best for us. She has skills and knowledge in so many areas, from Feng Shui to interior design, to all aspects of health. She is also extremely intuitive and respectful of people. She is not pushy and is very understanding of human nature. Also, her practicality is invaluable.
Maggie & Paul M (Tipperary)
FENG SHUI HOUSE DESIGN I had an interest in feng shui and wanted to create as much positive energy in my life and my home as possible, so when I heard of Nina from a friend and the positive effects she had on his life, I chose Nina. She gave me lots of good practical advice and lots of tips to be aware of when undertaking a building project. For my home she was able to combine appropriate design with a positive flow of energy. Others lack the knowledge of feng shui. Nina is very professional, readily accessible, very obliging and always pleasant.
Eileen G (Tipperary)
FENG SHUI GARDEN PROJECT
I wanted to improve the relaxation area of my garden by introducing feng shui elements which enhance meditation. Nina helped me select suitable plants as well as give me design advice. Nina has a great sense of humour and is extremely knowledgeable in her field. She is easy to work with and wonderfully patient. She takes great care to ensure everything is perfect for her clients. She is professional and caring, relates well to her client, and has a marvellous sense of design and dedication. There were no hiccups as everything was done in a planned way professionally at each stage.
Brendan McG (Co Wicklow)
FENG SHUI CONSULTATION (HOME & BUSINESS) I chose Nina as she was the first person to return my phone call. Nina has a good eye and feel for a room. With a few very simple changes the area became more user-friendly and became more pleasant to live in. I am a complimentary therapist working from home and my clients have commented on how relaxing the room is – all thanks to Nina. Following my very positive and very successful experience with Nina, why would I look for anyone else?
Leslie C (Dublin)
FENG SHUI CONSULTATION (HOME) Nina was recommended to me by a good friend who has a holistic centre in South Tipperary. My life literally took off in a new direction i.e. health, relationships, work. After the Feng Shui consultation, which was quite personalised, I gradually began to feel that things were working for me rather than against me. It is obvious that Nina puts her heart and soul into her work - you know that she is very focussed on your issues. In my case some of the important things she said would happen actually happened!
David C (Tipperary)
FENG SHUI CONSULTATION (HOME) After researching many sites on the Internet, I came across Nina’s. The site and what she was about really appealed to me. It was very clear and I was also impressed by other people’s comments. Nina began the process of obtaining balance within our home. She took time to go through each room and each individual and gave very clear and simple remedies to correct situations. Having only met Nina for the first time on the day I was so touched by her kindness and empathy. She took a holistic approach to our home and if I won the lotto tomorrow I’d hire her for a month!! She is well worth the investment.
Martha H (Waterford)
FENG SHUI CONSULTATION (HOME) I was told about Nina by a friend – I knew very little about feng shui but I had the interest to find out more. I found feng shui really amazing. Nina shared the principles with me and I discovered how something as easy as moving my bed to my best direction could make such a difference. I learned about which things to do and at the right time, how to attract the best energies, and how to live a richer life. Nina is the only person I know who does authentic feng shui.
Mary D (Galway)
FENG SHUI CONSULTATION (HOME) I read about feng shui and knew the key components for successful feng shui are balance and harmony. I looked up the Golden Pages and found Nina. She helped to bring more balance and harmony to the home through the family’s best directions, elements, Chinese animal signs and weakest organs. We discussed this and then rearranged furniture, reviewed colour schemes and changed the front door to the house. Nina was the only feng shui consultant and I am glad I found her. She understands what I want, she listens, and I feel very comfortable in her company. Well done Nina!
Mary F (Kilkenny)
FENG SHUI CONSULTATION (HOME)I became interested in feng shui from reading articles and books on the subject. I decided I would like a professional person’s advice on the subject. I rang Directory Enquiries and they gave me Nina’s phone number and when I rang she was helpful and encouraging. She helped with the layout of my home. This included putting in a back door and changing bedrooms. My house is more inviting and comfortable. I also got advice from Nina with regard to cooking. This new practice has brought more peace and harmony to my daily life. Nina is very knowledgeable and professional. She inspires trust and her advice is always beneficial. Her friendly, genuine personality is reassuring. If I was to move or build a house I would want Nina on board. I know she knows her stuff.
Yvonne R (Tipperary)
FENG SHUI CONSULTATION (HOME) I saw Nina on ‘Room to Improve’ – she made an impact. I’m in the market for a new home. I am interested in and believe in feng shui principles. Nina came across on the programme as someone I could easily relate with, understand and work with professionally. The consultation focussed my attention by ruling out what I don’t want in my new home, and cleared heavy energy in my existing home. Sleeping patterns for my daughter and I improved tenfold, my daughter no longer complained of a sick tummy in the mornings, and communication between my daughter and I is much easier, more open and loving, and is without effort. Nina is a very warm and gentle person, and easy to connect with and to understand, yet she is also focussed, accurate, intuitive and passionate to the task at hand. As a result, she covers a huge amount in a short space of time and gives 100% to her client. Her feng shui horoscope gave a clear, accurate description of my style of communication and interaction. She helped me to clear energy blockages to get things working again and my point of view has changed as a result of the process. Miracles occurred - for example improved and effortless communication with certain personalities. There were numerous issues in my present home that Nina recommended I work on and with her encouragement and explanations of each issue I was happy to tackle them as soon as possible. It became obvious very quickly the negative impact these issues were having on both my family and my health and well-being. It may sound extreme but the job description ‘saviour’ comes to mind when I think of Nina’s feng shui service. Not alone has Nina made a positive transformation of our health and well-being, my energy levels have increased, my memory has improved, I am more at ease, and I am more confident house-hunting. I even have more money in my bank account! Margaret C (Co Meath)
FENG SHUI CONSULTATION (HOME)I rang two people after an internet search for a feng shui consultant and Nina sounded lovely over the phone so I booked her. There were many benefits to the service I received from her; simple things like the door I use to leave the house every day which has lifted our spirits. I love the new layout of our living space – Nina helped sort out what should go where. I don’t know anyone else with feng shui skills but Nina is very good at what she does. Nina is enlightening, very interesting, and practical. She helped figure out what rooms my children should sleep in and what direction they should face. She is an all round home and family improver!
Olivia McG (Co Louth)
INTERIOR DESIGN CONSULTATION & SHOPPING (HOME) We heard about Nina through locals who highly recommended her. When I spoke to her on the phone I was struck by her confidence and found myself wanting to book her immediately. Her ideas were modern and simple, yet classy. She has a natural flair and a great eye. She listened to us and knew exactly what we wanted and liked. We believe there is nobody out there who is as good as Nina at her job. She knows her products and where to find them, saving time. She has great know-how, and is very decisive and confident. She knows what will look right in a particular space and gave us fantastic advice. She worked with ease and confidence, and was efficient and friendly. I remember her saying to me prior to our shopping trip that I would learn so much and this was true – I learned so many little tips on the outing. Even though I felt overwhelmed Nina was great to reassure me. Thanks to her help, guidance and advice we now have a beautiful new home. Brid B (Co Waterford)
FENG SHUI INTERIOR DESIGN CONSULTATION (HOME)
I met Nina at a house expo in Dublin and attended the talk she gave which really interested me. I spoke to her afterwards and liked her manner, and also loved the astrology. We were looking at renovating the house and Nina gave us good ideas from a feng shui perspective. She suggested we reposition the kid’s beds in their bedrooms and our own bed. It has made a huge difference. We also got rid of the bunk beds. I liked Nina’s manner and the astrology/feng shui mix was really interesting. Whilst working with Nina she covered directions and layout relating to each room, made sure headboards were not against a toilet wall, told us to keep doors to bathrooms closed at all times, and advised us against using too much glass in our proposed extension (which we had intended doing) for both design and feng shui reasons. She explained about energy flow through the house, door and window positions, positioning of cupboards over the head of a bed, issues concerning bunk beds, etc. She correctly pinpointed why we were so tired all the time and defined our personalities to a tee! It was particularly difficult for us to reposition our bed to face the right direction in our master bedroom as it has a lot of eaves, so Nina suggested creating an artificial wall on which to position it, creating a wardrobe area to the back of it. I think Nina was amazing, and although I would describe her as an interior designer, a feng shui expert and an astrologer, I think she could also help me reorganise a wardrobe full of clothes as she would be brilliant at choosing the right colours and styles to suit a person.

It is a year now since I bought my house. Before I bought it I asked Nina to have a quick look at it for me. She did so happily I bought it. Nina went through all the good and not so good points of the house with me, and gave a to do list which I followed to the letter. I am very happy to recommend Nina's expertise to anyone - which I have already. The peace, prosperity and balance in my home is more than I can ever imagine and that is thanks to Nina for putting me on the right track.Carmel H (Waterford)
FENG SHUI CONSULTATION (HOME) & BUILDING PLANS DESIGN AUDITNina is an absolute pleasure to work with! Professional, knowledgeable, efficient, empathetic, savvy, warm, engaging and intuitive. I found her services over and beyond anything I could have imagined. She gave me sound advice on every area of my life, not just feng shui and my home. Her counsel crossed over home, personal, family and business life. Since actioning her recommendations, I have a lot more peace of mind across a lot of areas in my life. I genuinely feel I have received my investment back beyond measure. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to create change and harmony in their home, life and future. Rosie G (Co Galway)
FENG SHUI CONSULTATION (HOME) From the moment Nina arrived to our house, I knew my life was going to change for the better. Nina had a subtle approach - she educates and suggests changes which are up to you to take on board. Once you start to incorporate these changes, be prepared for what will unfold. For me and my family we have seen such fantastic positive changes. What seemed like significant changes at the time happened effortlessly. Nina was also part of our recent decision to extend or move house. With her help and advice, we were able to make an informed decision for our family with amazing results. Eve J (Dublin)
FENG SHUI CONSULTATION (BUSINESS)
Nina Kati is my “go to” feng shui design consultant. Nina has supported me on 3 projects - a renovation, a refurbishment and more recently on exploring a new space for a business idea. I can’t imagine not having Nina in my life. She has helped me create harmonious and balanced homes that fitted my personality and budget. She is passionate about her craft and she is authentic in her delivery. She spent time understanding me and guiding me to make clever choices. Investing in Nina saves your resources on multiple levels. She is just fabulous, and I can highly recommend her services. My advice: engage Nina first before you engage a builder or architect.

PERSONAL POSITIVITY & VITALITYIt was such a pleasure to work with Nina. She is extremely professional, knowledgeable but also relatable and a great friend to have.
She gave me the most wonderful advice and direction in a time where I needed it the most. I would definitely recommend Nina to anyone.Ciara R (Cork)
INTERIOR DESIGN CONSULTATION (NEW BUILD)I consulted with Nina during the design phase of my build.
I'm genuinely glad I've done so. She was very informative, clearly very well experienced, and I found her very personable and generous with her time long after our consultation had ended (via text messages and emails etc.). I would very strongly recommend giving Nina a call for her Feng Shui expertise. Even more so if you are in the very early stages of designing a new build. My house won't be ready to move into until early Summer 2019, at which time I intend to re-engage with Nina regarding my interior design options. A truly good soul to deal with. Dave H (Waterford)
BUILDING PLANS DESIGN AUDITFrom the moment I spoke with Nina I knew she was the right person to help with the design of our new home. She grasped my needs instinctively and her knowledge is endless and so valuable. I love how it was so important to her that all members of our family were catered to according to their needs. I could not recommend her highly enough and hope to work with her again soon. Grainne O'G (Co Cork)

From the moment I spoke with Nina I knew I had found a gem. As soon as Nina walked through my hall door her knowledge came into play. She views and scans your home with her astounding knowledge. Because of the many restrictions as my property is rented, I didn’t think Nina could do much with my place. Instead, she came up with one super solution after another. I did everything Nina advised and I can’t get over the difference in my place now. After spending time with her, I wouldn’t dream of buying, renting or selling a property without Nina by my side. A superb investment indeed!

INTERIOR DESIGN PROJECT (RENOVATION)
Nina did a wonderful job in suggesting ideas that would rejuvenate a tired rental property. Nina pulled the various rooms together using new colour schemes and sourcing items of furniture and fittings to create a new look and feel, while keeping within a tight budget. Should problems arise, Nina was on hand to problem-solve and assist at all times. We are delighted with the new and fresh look of the property and we would be delighted to use Nina's services again in the near future. Lynn McN (Dublin)
BUILDING PLANS DESIGN AUDIT (NEW BUILD)
I have hired Nina Kati Interior Design Feng Shui twice since 2004 to guide me in creating a stylish home. I found Nina professional, knowledgeable and thoughtful in her approach each time. She is very personable and easy to work with. On both occasions Nina provided me with a highly detailed plan for my home which catered exactly to my family’s needs. I would highly recommend Nina as an interior designer.

Nina was absolutely brilliant to deal with a true professional, who gave us a very detailed walk through of our house and made some great suggestions which we followed. We can not recommend her highly enough.
Jim D (Dublin)
Such a pleasure to work with Nina, she was inspirational in helping me discover the true potential in our home. She helped me adapt our living room to accommodate adults and teens, provided design and storage ideas for teen bedrooms and helped get a new look for a dated kitchen. Nina is hands on helping make the very best of what you already have. Working with Nina feels like a true partnership, she listens, is authentic and highly committed. Nina is highly considerate of budget and really helped us to get the very best value for money.

Nina reviewed our house and basically turned it into a home for us. She was so respectful of our wishes - listened to my kids' ideas, and was completely in tune with the family straight away. She changed big and small things that have made such a huge difference. She is so polite, kind, friendly and a pleasure to do business with. Thank you Nina for all your hard work!

I have had the pleasure of having Nina provide her Feng Shui expertise in our home. She is an absolute professional, who excels in her field. Her advice and skills have made our home so much calmer and her interior design is incredible. I would highly recommend Nina to anyone looking to improve a few rooms or their entire home.

STAGING TO SELL
I recently contacted Nina as I needed her help in getting my home ready for sale. Lots needed doing, including decluttering, rearranging furniture and buying a few things that were necessary too. Nina got stuck in and wasn't afraid to get her hands dirty. She's very creative and could make a palace out of a hut. The end result being that my home looked perfect when the professional photographer came.
Anne O'S (Tipperary)
Well I heard of Nina from a tv program and then met her at a self-build show nearly 3 years ago. Our house drawings were near completion when we met and after this initial meeting I’ve met her so far 3 times and probably not finished yet! Nina’s influence, thoughts and ideas have brought our project of our new home to where it is today. The only downfall is the meetings don’t last long enough! Nina gets me and know what I and my family want in our new home. She is full of enthusiasm and there is nothing that can’t be achieved. If there is an idea you want, Nina will do her best to achieve this for you. I have never found her to be negative, don’t think it’s in her! We’re two months from moving into our new home and the kettle will be on for Nina’s visit, I can’t wait for her to see our dream home!’

CUSTOMISED CONSULTATION (Home)
On meeting Nina a few years ago I found her to be vibrant, positive and energetic and her philosophy on healthy living was very appealing as I knew this would have a very positive and uplifting impact on me at this phase of my journey in life. I most especially liked her gentle approach and I knew she would take into account my own individual style and taste, and this made me feel at ease inviting her into my home. Nina was very encouraging and generous of her time and had a wealth of knowledge about much needed general maintenance and improvements around my home. She opened my eyes and gave me a vision and a plan which I have worked from and continue to work from with the help of the reliable and trustworthy trade contacts she gave me during the consultation. In Nina I have found an experienced and knowledgeable Feng Shui expert in interior design which to me is someone working in health and wellbeing, an essential compliment to every home as this makes it our very own sanctuary of rest and rejuvenation to come home to. This is especially needed in the time we are presently living, helping to move energy to ensure it flows into all areas of our lives to help us more during this time. It was a pleasure to have Nina's gentle approach and we are delighted visitors have felt the results when they come to our home. She rearranged furniture and paintings, and encouraged a more positive flow of chi energy to complement each of us. Nina is an attuned Feng Shui Interiors Consultant who deals with holistic living.

BUILDING PLANS DESIGN AUDIT (Extension)
Nina has worked on my home twice, more recently in relation to a home extension. She quickly understood my family's needs and designed a vision for our home which was exactly what we required. Her understanding and knowledge of building, interior design, etc. is immense, sensible, inspiring and up to date. Nina is relaxed, positive and friendly to work with. Its always a pleasure to have her in our home. Our home always benefits from her visits. Her professionalism and insight leaves our home beautiful, organised and welcoming. I would recommmed Nina Kati as an interior designer for all design projects, big or small.
Anne A (Co Laois)
A shop I visited recommended Nina to help me makeover an old farmhouse. Our first contact was warm and friendly, as if we knew each other a long time. Nina gave me lots of ideas as my house was in a bad way, and she worked long hours to make my new home lovely and homely. She is a very caring and patient person and her service is wonderful. In today's modern world of computers there's nothing like the personal touch, and Nina was very personable. Working with her was a great experience, she gave me more confidence, and she brought life and warmth to my home. I miss her company - I feel as though I hired a friend - keep up the good work Nina!
