Currently, a lot is going on at KCL-IDESIGN, LLC, but as always, I am continually grateful! However, I did come to the notion that I need to pour my heart and soul out through my posts. I see it as an avenue to share endless inspiration, whether through design, travel, personal, or business. Even though I love being an interior designer, there is so much more to me than meets the eye. Moreover, when I speak about my blessings, I exude extreme gratitude on how grateful and appreciative for the opportunities that are put in my path daily.

Also, I love the meaning behind the word gratitude, which states “the quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness.” So, with having a creative mindset, it is only fair that I share with the world the fantastic experiences that I continually receive from the Greatest Designer Ever – God! With that said, one of the most significant projects of my career, which is The Reserve at Lake Keowee, has kelp me on my toes. Recently, I was on-site, and everything is coming together beautifully.

It is funny because, with this design project, I have made a lot of the final decisions, God knows that I have learned a thing or two about patience. Designing a custom-built home is on an entirely different level, which takes extreme patience. During this walk-through, as the client and I are going through different areas of the house to see the completed work, I am in total awe at the custom stairs (Photo 5). The bull-nosed tread resembles the bottom of an elegant evening gown flowing with a long-flared trail.

The custom stairway was designed, especially for the client. They extend to all levels.

With an intense passion for incorporating a wow factor to anything ordinary, Kimberly acknowledges, that she is recognized as a rare breed while splashing her signature touch when designing, which is considered extremely fun and exciting! However, besides being incredibly obsessed with extreme bold colors, captivating art, unique decorative objects, modern architecture, and the motivating phrase – “I dare you,” this overcharged and crazed interior designer lives for going outside the box and is not afraid to break irrelevant design rules. Her extraordinary obsessed passion for interior design comes from a deeply rooted philosophy, which is designing from within; from the soul, and it is always about living, breathing, and loving interior design!

Kimberly is addicted to chocolate, obsessed shopaholic, laughs hysterically just because, global traveler, football-crazed chick, head-over-heels in love with modernism, and is always inspired by the not so beautiful objects.

Lives accordingly by her motto: I live – breathe – love interior design.
