Why did you choose this quote? This is “out of the box”.. Mrs. P. if you want me to design a kitchen around your ruby-red slippers, then my job is to choose just the right shade of red-- Kyle Timothy Blood, in conversation with a then - potential client Describe your design style. Unless this is a physical place for everything and for every person in a space- especially if the project is a new-build or renovation, no aesthetic will prove successful, whether minimalist or traditional, once I have addressed the issues of function and flow within a space, most important in kitchens and baths, I create a layered, textural home with a timeless, understated elegance and sophistication. Nothing precious or trendy How long have you been in Interior Design? Was this your first career choice or did you come from a different background? I started my company over 10 years ago but have had a passion for Interior Design all my life. Growing up in Maine, my family was quite the self-sufficient. As a child I watched my Mother sew new kitchen curtains and helped my Father build rooms onto our modest Lake House or a “camp” as we would say. After attending Dartmouth, I went into French Academia and Teaching, I had been granted a fulbright teaching assistant position in Paris. I spent most of the time there at the museums or having coffee in the lobbies of the grand hotels just studying the interiors and how the inhabitants utilized the space. In New York I worked in publishing for over ten years, including fie years at Forbes and another five at Martha Stewart Living Omni Media. While at Martha I started studying at the New York School of Interior Design at night, and I have not stopped since.
