For the past 12 years, Kristi’s been working with amazing clients who have great style themselves and want a beautiful, inviting home that is ready on a moment’s notice to host a “girls’ night in”, a Sunday brunch with family or the team soccer party. That’s what she’s passionate about – creating homes where you can build memories for you and your family. read more

Her design style is classic and fresh, with a casualness that feels welcoming, because a home should be both beautiful and ready for all things “family”. She loves color, prints and unexpected details. She designs for people who want the look of a Pinterest-ready home, but want to live in it with their kids, their dogs and their friends.

Kristi’s previous 15 years of experience in advertising agencies on the Account and Strategic Planning side provided her with a background in client management, marketing, budget management, project timelines and the management of large creative teams. This background brought extensive management and process expertise when starting Grace Hill Design.

Today, she and her team bring this strategic, creative process to each project with an attention to detail that creates happy spaces for their clients that are functional yet inspired – a home that will make you smile while working, entertaining or simply enjoying your morning cup of coffee.

“We were so delighted with the attention to detail and focus on the customer experience! Every promise made was met or exceeded.

We needed to have everything complete for two big events – Grace Hill had everything done and in place ready to dazzle our guests.”

- PATRICIA R.

“Grace Hill was an absolute pleasure to work with! They were able to take the vision we had for our home and bring it to life.

It was the perfect balance between understanding our taste and incorporating elements that our designer knew would work best, taking into consideration things like quality, price and maintenance.”

– LINDSAY A.

“Working with Grace Hill was such a wonderful experience! From our initial contact until completion, Grace Hill made the entire process so easy.

They are not only immensely talented but are so organized, thorough, and fun to be around! They took the time to listen to what we like and then blended in their creativity.”

– JOHN & DENISE K.

“Kristi and her team are good listeners, flexible when matching design recommendations to available budget, and supremely talented when it comes to selecting fabrics and furniture styles.

Our furniture needed to be shipped out of town. They identified a reliable delivery service and kept tabs at each step of the process to ensure products met their exacting standards.”

– ANNE C.

The Grace Hill Design creative team fills the store with their favorite pieces and loves to match clients with that perfect item, whether that be holiday decor, unique gifts, or something to tie a room together.

Their focus on excellent customer service is no surprise for a business dedicated to developing “comfortable luxury”. They believe in friendliness, approachability, quality, and of course, happiness– evident both in their designs and in the way they interact with customers.

Celebrating Grace Hill’s 10th Anniversary in 2021 is especially exciting for Kristi Patterson, the owner and creative director. She and her team are passionate about creating home designs that build memories. It’s not just about appealing design, it’s about designing a space that is right for the people living there.

Getting to know customers and understanding what makes them happy is the design team’s favorite part. “We are extremely honored,” says Kristi. “Customer service is a top priority for us so we truly value this award.

The greater Wayzata Area Chamber of Commerce and Business & Estate Advisors are thrilled to honor this local business for their commitment to service with the "Exceptional Service Award of Excellence for Service and Support".
