Kathy’s love of interior design was predestined as a child. Kathy combined her love of sewing and science and graduated from Cornell University, Ithaca, NY as a textile major. She married fellow Cornellian, Steve Cragan, and after the birth of their two daughters, Kathy completed an associate degree in interior design at night. A resident of Wilton, CT since 1982, Kathy has worked not only as an interior designer and principal of her own firms, but also as a community leader for organizations such as Wilton Children’s Theater, The Ridgefield Civic Ballet, and the local PTA. She chaired her 25th and 30th class reunions for Cornell. Most recently, Kathy has helped raise funds for various organizations fighting cancer: the Melissa Bambino Sun Run for melanoma awareness and the American Skin Cancer Association, Spin Odyssey for breast cancer, and Relay for Life.
Kathy has built a trusting relationship in the last 30 years with an expert team of building contractors, carpenters, painters, drapery installers and other trades people that help ensure her projects are most successful.

Kathleen Cragan is an absolute pleasure to work with. Not only does she do exceptional work, but she is someone who takes the time to really get to know her clients so that her design is beautiful and functional for the client’s lifestyle. She has renovated our master bath and designed a warm, welcoming and timeless space in our living room. Now we are moving on to the family room and we wouldn’t attempt it without Kathy taking the lead! I highly recommend Kathleen Cragan Interior Design.

Kathy has been a delight to work with in transforming my house from dated and dark into a vibrant and beautiful place. It makes me so happy! She listened to me and she captured the look and feel of what I wanted. I cannot imagine how much time and money I would have wasted without her. I recommend her for any project because the process of working with her and the result will be very satisfying. She has the vision and talent and a wonderful team to support her!
