Who Says You Can't Go Home?
""For this family," says Watson, "this is their great room. It all starts at the table and emanates out.""
Rhode Island Home and Garden, 2009/2010
" ...Make it cohesive. Don't just paint your walls red and be done. Think about the entire room as a composition. And remember, smaller rooms are easier because you don't have as many things to consider."
Rhode Island Monthly, October 2009
"Unlike so many renovations that err on the side of excess, Watson and architect were careful to revive and rework the handsome house without catapulting over the top. A well-considered wave of shore-like textures - driftwood, grass, rattan, stone - play off the newly added beadboard and paneling in a timeless New England manner. And from the front door to the back, Watson's palette and furnishings are cohesive and appropriate to the home's comfortable easy-breezy nature.”
Renovation Style, Spring 2009
"...Watson replaced the undersized cabinetry and island with her custom designs that spanned the entire space from the floor up. Then, she maintained the open floor plan but refined the boundaries of the room with paint color and lighting."

In Good Taste, Interior Designers at Home
"...What makes Watson's design so extraordinary is her capability to execute a seamless integration of age-old African tribal masks and Chinese statuary amid claw foot furnishings and period details including dentil moulding, bull's eye corner blocks and built-in bookshelves."
Newport Life, 2009 Home Issue
"Watson is known for her problem-solvng abilities, construction and design sensibilities and her very personal approach to interior design."
Rhode Island Monthly, October 2008
"Portions of the structure had not been updated in fifty years. No matter. Watson and a crew of talented local tradespeople pulled it off. Along with a host of structural changes, out went last millennium's carpeting and paneling. In came upscale fixtures and visual plusses like native stone and maple flooring. Every room breathes easier."
New England Home, March/April 2008
"Patti took us through a really great process. She probably asked us fifty questions about how we use our kitchen. What she came back with was not only the cabinets, but the island and a buffet and, from there, the whole place got redone."
Rhode Island Monthly, November 2007
”Watson, in collaboration with the enthusiastic owners, turned the Providence space not only into a chic home but also a fitting showcase. Every detail - from lighting and audio to colors and custom cabinetry - has been meticulously choreographed.”
Residential Design for Aging in Place
by Drue Lawlor and Michael A. Thomas
"Open spaces, common floor materials, and a series of unencumbered windows help to create sight lines that make the space feel larger."

“An area rug is equivalent to the interior architecture of a room - comparable to the millwork in your home. Start with an area rug and build your interior furnishings scheme from there…quite often, the rug is going to be the piece with the most pattern, so start with one you love.”
