An artist at heart, Kate began her design career studying Fine Arts at Illinois State University before transferring to Harrington College of Design where she received her degree in Interior Design. Kate has been honing her talents while developing her signature fresh, timeless look since 2000. As Principal Designer, Kate oversees all design projects to ensure they are a reflection of the client while incorporating the KMI aesthetic. Kate’s strengths lie in her endless ideas & inspiration, relentless work ethic, unwavering vision, and a great sense of humor, which, lucky for everyone she works with, is infectious.
Kate lives in Barrington, Illinois with her husband, their two daughters, and their dogs, Maddox & Millie. In Kate’s free time she can be found biking with her girls, catching a yoga class with a friend, searching for the perfect antique rug, and late-night online shopping.
