Kathleen Walsh's tailored and serene interiors are the right balance of interesting details, luxury, and the perfect imperfection of things that are made by hand.
The New England-raised entrepreneur entered Pratt Institute for fashion but discovered what she really loved was the tactile, three-dimensional qualities of fabric and the transformational qualities of color. Interiors allowed her to combine both with her love of architecture and sculpture. She finished her studies with a BFA in Interior Design and then earned her MBA in Management from Baruch College.
Walsh spent a decade working with some of New York's leading designers and architects on residential and commercial projects internationally and throughout the greater New York area before establishing her own firm in 2004. She also created, designed, and managed the production of oona bedding, a customizable line of baby and kids’ bed linens she sold to select high-end boutique stores and interior designers.
Her projects include primary and secondary residences in New York City, Brooklyn, Greenwich CT, Westchester and Fairfield Counties, New England, and on Martha’s Vineyard.
We are grateful to be able to say we've received the kindest notes from clients after completing projects; we'll let them speak for themselves:

"Kathleen asked questions and figured out what was important to my husband and me. The room designs truly reflect our tastes and personalities – only up 10 notches!"

I look forward to doing so again in the future."
"Kathleen, over the past five years you've made our house into a home, both times. Your sense of color and light, balance and beauty bring such joy to my eyes each morning. Waking up in a room you have decorated starts my day off on the right side of the bed. It's lovely. Thank you for all your great work over the years."
"Kathleen takes the time to understand the overall aesthetic a client is looking for in a particular project. She is thoughtful with regard to individual taste and lifestyle. She works through ideas with ease and confidence and is extremely creative when challenges arise. Her incredible attention for detail never goes unnoticed.
