A home is measured by its ability to restore you.

About Cathy Chalfant

I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t doing something creative. As soon as I was old enough to put crayon to paper, I was in tune with my surroundings and felt an innate desire to make everything beautiful, functional and organized.
My family lived on Taft Street in Muncie, Indiana.  In 1974 my parents gave me the greatest gift ever… my own house!  Well appointed and constructed of cardboard, it was conveniently located in the basement across from the washer and dryer. That house was my first interior design project and the inspiration for my business name.
Over the last two decades, I’ve worked in homes of all sizes from 700 – 14,000 sq. ft.  The majority of my time was spent in Naples and Tampa, Florida until I returned to Indiana in 2016.  Carmel has become my home, and I’m proud to serve my community as an Associate Member of ASID, IDC, and the NKBA.  It’s an honor to work with home owners, real estate professionals, and retirement communities.
Today I still love every home as much as the little cardboard house.  At the beginning of each project, I’m reminded that every home is measured by its’ ability to restore, refresh, and uplift the client. No project is compete until I’ve accomplished this.

“I met Cathy in 2016 when she partnered with Artichoke Designs. I’ve continued to work with her as she formed Taft Street Interiors. As the owner of a construction business, I’ve trusted her with my home and business needs. She’s handled our exterior color selection and interior decor. She’s met all deadlines within budget, sourced high quality furnishings, and tailored every selection to match my personal style.  Cathy loves her work and makes me feel as though I’m her only client.”

“Cathy is a great lady. My wife and I asked for her help when we updated our home, and Cathy gave it a whole new life. She has a peaceful heart, she’s always willing to help others, and she’s determined to provide the best work for every client. We highly recommend Cathy.”
