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.
“Gathering spaces without screens will be prioritized. Though I believe families will still incorporate televisions out of practicality, we’ll see fewer rooms with computers and iPads as we focus on spending more time together without the distraction of work. Outdoor spaces designed to function beyond typical seasons will be sought after as people embrace getting out of their homes and into nature. Finally, a high-quality sofa is a “must” for those looking for an upgrade.”
