Our Approach 

Working with Harrop & Company to design your home is a fun and exciting experience.  Our process takes you through a collaborative journey of exploring concepts, considering spatial arrangements, selecting fabrics, finishes, fixtures, furnishings and accessories tailored to your space. 

Our speciality focus is designing homes for coastal living. We have a keen understanding of what households need to keep up with island lifestyles while maintaining a well styled appearance. Over the years we have curated a fashionable selection of durable brands and materials housed in our studio library on island for client's to explore. 


Our hope is that beyond building a beautiful custom home, you will have a blast getting to work with our team and create a special environment for your family to enjoy on Martha's Vineyard. We encourage you to step outside the basic and make selections that will create a memorable island home for many years to come!

Kate Kenney Harrop

Founder, Principal Designer

Known for her fashionable eye, Kate Harrop’s design style can be summed up as chic, timeless, and approachable. Equal parts contemporary and traditional, Kate creates spaces rooted in classic New England architecture mixed with modern lines and fresh patterns to create comfortable and memorable homes. 


Kate credits her evolving design style to growing up in the world of custom home building with her contractor father, her artistic and free spirited mother, past career in fashion, and experiences living between the Virginian countryside, Nashville, and Martha’s Vineyard. Kate’s attention to detail for what a functional home requires has continued to develop over time as a homeowner, mother to two active border collies, and lover of the many outdoor activities our beautiful island offers.
