Cathy Gentry Robinson has been working as an interior designer for nearly two decades. A fourth generation Houstonian, Cathy prefers restoration instead of demolition, hence the name of her firm: renovate. When you can't find Cathy rearranging furniture, knocking down walls, or designing pillows, she's likely spending time with her grandchildren, or her favorite children, Tres and Gus (golden retriever and chocolate lab.)

Cathy's daughter Courtney Robinson Prochaska came to work with Cathy full-time in 2014. Courtney's previous work experience is varied; she has worked at the White House and Dept. of Agriculture during the George W. Bush Administration, taught with Teach For America at a KIPP Houston elementary school, and also worked at Yellowstone Academy.  

She and her husband, Drew, live in Briargrove Park with their sons, Thomas (2) and Harris (born Jan. 2017!)

Our team would be incomplete without the talents of Brigitte Howell; Brigitte is a woman of many talents, from fashion design to professional faux painting. She and Cathy first met at Eisenhower High School and have been close friends ever since. Brigitte has painted in homes throughout Texas, and her work in a Florida beach house was featured on the widely-read design blog "House of Turquoise."  

She and her husband, Dwight, live in Houston.
