Kevin Isbell Interiors, founded in 2009, is a design firm with studios in New York and Los Angeles. A native of Ohio, Kevin earned degrees in both Business Management and Art History at The Ohio State University before moving to San Francisco where he received a degree in Interior Architecture and Design from the Academy of Art. Shortly after, he began working for the renowned California designer Orlando Diaz-Azcuy.
In 2001, he relocated to New York City and became Senior Designer for Celeste Cooper, where he worked on projects from pied-et-terre apartments to Palm Beach estates. In early 2005, he joined Bilhuber & Associates as Design Director leading numerous projects from Montecito to the Caribbean.
Named Rising Star of Interior Design 2010 by the International Furnishings and Design Association, his style is clean, layered and highly nuanced. Although firmly rooted in contemporary living, Isbell’s designs never disregard the past, but rather update them with a fresh new perspective. Isbell’s passion, fueled by his love of travel, is to develop a design that is a mix of worldly periods and cultures coupled with his client’s own inspiration and personal references. The result: an emotive space, reflective of the client and appropriate to the home and use of the room. Isbell strives to cultivate his client’s sentiment with design elements that are elegant, timeless and utterly livable.
Kevin Isbell Interiors’ work has earned praise from such leading publications as The New York Times, Architectural Digest, House Beautiful, Traditional Home, Coastal Living, NY Spaces, as well as, Susanna Salk’s book Be Your Own Decorator: Taking Inspiration and Cues from Today's Top Designers.
