Kim Haire Terry, who holds a design degree from the University of Georgia and has been an interior designer for over 20 years, started her own full service design firm in 2000. She believes that style is not only about a “well-dressed” home, but about creating comfortable spaces for real living. After UGA, Kim has renovated and resided in the historical homes of Druid Hills and Virginia Highland. These old wonderful homes are not just “part of work, they are a hobby and a love of mine.” She designs residential interiors throughout the country and her clients range from young professionals to corporate executives. Designing homes is a “co-active venture”. I want my clients home to “reflect them and not me.” Her services include space planning, style development, project management and selections of fabrics, furniture and accessories.
Kim offers full-service design expertise. No matter what stage in the design project, she is able to assess your needs and provide a thoughtful design for your space. From assisting in everything from full-scale renovations to a strictly interior role, choosing appliances, lighting, tile, paint, fabrics, and accessories.
Designs are based on clients personal stories and lifestyles. Do you have an art collection that you’re finally ready to showcase? Do you have photographs and artifacts from travel that you’d like to find a way to display? Ideally, bringing your family story into the design creates a space that is a reflection of you. What Kim does best is being detail oriented right down to the small stuff, which, in the end, makes all the difference.
The beginning of a renovation is the perfect time to hire a designer. Assisting in building selections and making sure the existing structure you are about to purchase, or own, can change into the finished design complements your lifestyle. Kim’s extensive resources of contractors and architects alleviate mountains of stress and save you hours of time.
