Recently featured in Midwest Home, K2 Interior Designs is an award winning interior design studio based in Minneapolis, MN. From renovations and new builds to material and furniture selections, we are available to assist you with your project from an initial design concept to completion - or any step in between.
We believe that expertly designed spaces impact our daily lives and that everyones home should be a true reflection of their own unique character and lifestyle.
We bring a timeless aesthetic to each project to design interiors that are not only beautiful, but functional and practical for today’s modern living. Balancing clean lines with layered texture, pattern, and natural elements, we create a fresh curated look. The result is a style that is both inspired and inviting.
Kristen brings over two decades of experience to each project to tell her clients stories through well executed and expertly curated interiors. Although her style is ever evolving, her designs share a fresh yet timeless aesthetic. Her attention to detail and keen listening skills ensure that projects are well executed. At the same time, her passion for design and sense of humor allow her to develop a great rapport not only with her clients, but with architects, builders, and sub-contractors alike.
Classically trained with a BA in Interior Design, Kristen started her design career in Denver, CO at Gensler, a global design and architecture firm. She later founded K2 Interior Designs in order to connect and work more closely with her clients.
“I caught the design “bug” early in life from my Mom, whose idea of a good time was taking me to open houses and playing with wallpaper books. Soon swiping paint chips from the local hardware store was a regular pastime. My first career was as a social researcher. When I realized graduate school was in my near future and it was either a PhD in Sociology or a design degree, design sounded much more fun! I love a good design challenge and firmly believe that the process should be fun and the results should be fabulous.”
