Ursula at Square One came into my life over a decade ago and I am so glad she did. She is the ultimate professional and a wonderful spirit. I have moved several times over the years and her wisdom and creativity always made the houses into homes. Her ability to listen to what I want and then translate that into something totally unexpected and terrific is her greatest attribute.
Work done over the years:
Complete remodel of my Kitchen, Master Bathroom, and Dinning room. ( I don’t know what I would have done if she was not the project manager on these. She was phenomenal when dealing with all the contractors and suppliers. She kept the project on time and within the budget. How many people can say that about a major renovation?)
Interior design on 4 houses including all furnishings, window coverings and rugs (her taste is impeccable and she really set my homes apart from any I have ever seen).
Art Acquisition (This can be a tough area to match up your taste with you hers but she does it beautifully. Again, she always seems to find something special that you never knew that you just had to have).
I promise you that should you choose to do business with the awesome designer you will be in for a great experience!! I know that I will turn to Ursula for many years to come.
Ursula is the EPITOME of what an interior designer should be. I started the planning stages of the remodel of my San Francisco loft last year. I went to several design showrooms and was quickly overwhelmed with the multitude of choices. Ursula of Square One Interiors was recommended to me and when I met her, I was instantly impressed with her professionalism, organization and design sense. One of the many things that I liked about Ursula is how she listened and interpreted what I wanted into reality. The master bath and kitchen were two areas that we instantly collaborated on: she educated me on fixtures, tile and cabinetry that would work best and was spot on, with the results being spectacular. The guest bath was a bit more difficult: I had a vision of “modern” but didn’t know quite what I wanted. I showed her a picture of what I liked and she told my why that particular design wouldn’t work. She then found a patterned tile that was marvelous and then came up with 6 different designs and custom cabinetry that worked out better than what I originally wanted. Not all remodels go smoothly and there were a few hitches in my case, but Ursula dealt with each one and was able to resolve things in a timely manner with a resolution that was perfect. Ursula was always on my side, looking after my best interest, delivering beyond my expectations and with the UTMOST OF PROFESSIONALISM. With the remodel complete, I look around and cannot believe how beautiful everything turned out … it is so beautiful that I can’t believe it is really my place… Thank you Ursula for making the process enjoyable and for making my dream loft a reality.
Managing an interior design project from a bare shell, with the owners always traveling and taking care of every detail (budgeting, proposals, tradesmen, follow up and even receiving your purchases) is a task that not many people are willing and able to do. Ursula of Square One Interiors, San Francisco, can make that happen. Ursula is extremely mindful of your pre-defined budget, always up to date with paperwork and the status of your orders and pending decisions, open to discuss suggestions from you but also able to tactfully advise you about your possible mistakes: these are just a few examples of the skills Ursula brought to our project. Her sense of humor, down to earth attitude, great taste, extensive inventory of providers and the capacity to really understand what we wanted and needed, resulted in a final product that exceeded our expectations and has consistently received praise from others. Her transparent work style makes easy a project that can be nightmare if it is not well managed. We are not just happy with the final result, but also would have no hesitation recommending her to others and of course, working with her again on a future project.
Many thanks, Ursula, for creating a stylish, comfortable and functional home!!!
Ursula, our friends love what you have done to our new loft in Santa Monica. The office and entry are a show stopper. We get so many compliments on our new place. Once again, you have done it. We love this one as much as we did our other houses in Hawaii, Atlanta and San Francisco
We are pleased to have this opportunity to recommend Ursula Kloeters of Square One Interiors in San Francisco to you.
Ursula helped us redesign our entire condo. We, she did the work, but we always felt that we were making the ultimate design decisions. The final product reflects our style. When our wishes exceeded our budget and forced a design change, Ursula reacted with flexibility and creatively reworked the design to our satisfaction. She keeps up on the latest products and trends, but she is practical. She was always conscious of our budget and her accounting was scrupulously efficient and accurate.
Ursula was our top choice among several designers we researched. We were intrigued by Ursula’s originality and creativity, but equally impressed with her professionalism and efficiency. Ursula possesses all the skills you need in a good designer, not just some of them. And she demonstrated these skills throughout the project, from our first meeting to our last. Everyone involved in our project, from out contractor to our cabinet manufacturer to the tile purveyor, praise Ursula and said they enjoyed working with her. She treats everyone with respect, and she knows what she’s talking about, so people respect her. In addition to being an experienced, skillful, innovative designer, Ursula is also knowledgeable about architecture and construction, so she was able to articulate the design to our contractor. She does her job and lets them do theirs.
You would be hard-pressed to find another designer as skilled as Ursula Kloeters.
We heartily recommend her.
We hired Ursula of Square One Interiors, San Francisco, first for our Honolulu property and then for our residence in Atherton. Ursula accurately guessed what I couldn’t articulate well. Her organizational skills are well above average – in fact, probably the BEST I’VE SEEN in the remodeling/building/design field. We are very happy with the result, particularly given our tight budget. And best of all her response time and turn around was very fast
I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Ursula Kloeters, Square One Interiors San Francisco, since the mid-Eighties, when she first arrived here from Dusseldorf. What is most impressive about Ursula is her energy. She truly loves what she does, which she does with a contagious enthusiasm. Her work is meticulous, thorough, extremely well organized. She works well with contractors, giving good direction and making the process of building much easier for everyone. Ursula has evolved a clean, contemporary, International style very much her own. And at the same time, she is able to clearly reflect the personalities and tastes of her clients. She enjoys applying her refined sensibility along with her wisdom, to ensure satisfaction with every project she completes.
I would recommend Ursula to anyone who is appreciative of a high level of service, great ideas, respect for a budget and sure-fire delivery.
Ursula translated my dreams into a beautiful vacation condo in Honolulu. Her organizational skills in regards to logistics and budget are THE BEST I’VE EVER SEEN. She was excellent at listening to my ideas and guiding me through the process of finding what I loved. I would have absolutely been lost without her.
Ursula Kloeters is a MIRACLE WORKER! She transformed a difficult space into a unique media/library room. It has become the favorite room in our home. MAGNIFICENT! I am so glad our friend Bill Gunn referred us to you.
I’ve worked with Ursula a number of times and can’t imagine starting any project without consulting her. Working with her has saved me time, money and the agony of making horrible design decisions that I’d be forced to live with forever.
We had a tight budget for our kitchen remodel and she came up with a design that was not only within the budget, but looked much more expensive.
As a Realtor, I’ve seen enough design work to know Ursula is one of the best. If you think hiring a designer is a waste of money, please think again. Remodeling is expensive and a good designer will save you money and huge headaches.
I would recommend Square One Interiors without hesitation.
