About Kathleen


Kathleen Newhouse Interiors

Two decades of interior design experience

Kathleen Newhouse, ASID

My primary goal is outstanding customer service and clear communication, with a focus on creating comfortable and unforgettable spaces. I incorporate the personal style of my clients with a mixture of colors, textures, and fine furnishings that represent their home.
Not only am I a professional interior designer, but I also owned my own interior design firm. In more than 25 years of creating unique designs for residential and commercial clients, I understand the importance of communication throughout the design process.
I am a graduate of Benedictine University in Illinois, an American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) member and accredited window treatment professional. I bring more than two decades of experience and knowledge to my clients. My designs have been featured in numerous publications, books, and television.
Natural Harmony

I am inspired by…

…the beauty of nature. I enjoy blue skies, colorful sunsets and bright, sunny days. I incorporate the textures, colors, and accessories that make a room feel fresh, comfortable and complete. This natural harmony brings everything to life.

My perspective on design…

…is informed by listening to and communicating with you. Regardless of style, I create homes that are unique reflections of your individual personality. Items are sourced with you in mind, and I deliver designs that cannot be found anywhere else.
I have direct relationships with artisans, designers and manufacturers across the global interior design industry, including: Ann GishArtistica Home, Benson-CobbBernhardt Furniture Company, Caracole Home FurnishingsCharleston Forge, Chelsea HouseJohn-Richard, Phillip Jeffries Wallcoverings, RM COCO, Thibaut Wallpaper and Fabrics, Visual Comfort Lighting, and Wildwood Lamps.
