INTERIOR DESIGNER: Kimberly C. Lyons
ENHANCED AREA: Hallway/Foyer
DESIGN PHILOSOPHY: My home's style says a lot about who I am, and therefore, the design is always an honest, authentic, and authentic reflection of who occupies the space.
I often find myself reminiscing on my childhood because not only was it a fantastic part of my life, but it is a part of my life where my love for color, drawing, and painting began. At that time, my brain was bursting with extreme creativeness. Even though I was a youngster, I had a good idea as to what I was going to contribute to this gigantic world. It may not have been stable enough at that time because I was only a child, but I could see my vision clearly, and I knew that without a shadow of a doubt that it would deal with transforming and extreme color. So, with that said, there is no question as to why I make sure both are a dominant factor daily.
Sometimes I feel as if color follows me, it is my shadow; it is my visual road map, which resonates and affects me emotionally – it is my DNA – Kimberly C. Lyons.
Years ago, once again, I questioned myself – interior designer or canvas artist, who shall I indeed become? Both deal with extraordinary color palettes, statement-making, can transform people and their surroundings, and become an ultimate masterpiece once completed. It was a relatively easy decision for me because I chose both, and with that said – I have never looked back or regretted incorporating two specific elements that define significant portions of my character and who I am as an individual with a gifted and creative soul. So, when using color to inspire through my artwork, my passion is surpassable.
However, the short story above, which was the beginning of my life-long foundation, truly helped me to solidify my art inspired hallway. I am beyond obsessed with artwork that screams extreme boldness, contrast, daring, drama, and a wow factor! Art – it is a must-have throughout my surroundings. Moreover, everyone and that includes clients are not always into such extreme details. Trust me, I get that people are different, but how can one ignore an element that is extraordinary and compelling such as color? It will be impossible for me ever to understand.
Art brings beauty to my eyes and soul – Kimberly C. Lyons

It is about my passion for extraordinary and compelling artwork, along with my obsession with painting on canvas. The paintings in the photos above are by Kimberly C. Lyons, who is a canvas artist.
