A California native with a timeless sensibility, Kendall Wilkinson has emerged as one of the nation’s most celebrated interior designers. Establishing her eponymous San Francisco firm in 1992, Kendall creates bespoke residences with an emphasis on beauty and comfort. Her oeuvre ranges from Pacific Heights estates to coastal Mexican vacation getaways. Geographically her projects span the nation and beyond.
Rooted in classical design, Kendall continues to evolve her style, “As designers, we are informed by artistic, cultural, and technological shifts,” explains Kendall of her fluidity. “Ultimately, it’s about bringing the vision of the client to life.” The designer’s portfolio, which includes both commercial and residential spaces demonstrates this philosophy throughout. Kendall’s initial introduction to the world of design was through her mother, an interior designer, art connoisseur and style setter who was instrumental in honing her daughter’s artistic eye. “I learned from my mother to appreciate the value of color, scale, and texture and continue to draw inspiration from the fashion world.”
