Since 2005, interior designer Cathy Tonks, owner of Designs With You in Mind, has specialized in luxury design-build projects in the greater Sacramento area with projects ranging from kitchen and bathroom remodels to new home construction and furnishings.

Cathy proudly runs a small team of women whose mission is to design signature spaces that bring out the best in you, reflect who you are, and how you live. We strive to provide highly personalized solutions that exceed your expectations and leave a lasting impression. From the initial spark of inspiration to the final design, we guide you through every step of the journey.

From her studio in Granite Bay, she is able to provide clients with the finest material options from the best brands to make your home truly unique. To keep her collection up to date, she holds a monthly vendor day to consider the latest product lines including hardware, carpet, tile, furniture, cabinets, fabrics, window coverings, soft furnishings, and bedding.

In addition to owning her own business, Cathy has owned Distinctive Design Group, a collaborative designer buying group since 2009 where she has the opportunity to mentor members and encourage them to grow their own businesses.
