kari walker-higgins

Kari finds beauty in function, clean lines and sustainability. Her internal sensibility brings balance to any project, and she’s known for finding great solutions within the context of unconventional ideas. A Dallas native, Kari became a Registered Interior Designer by way of Texas Tech University. She loves good food, great wine, and the movie “The Holiday.”

She has a deep appreciation for the way color can transform a space, change or create a mood and enhance an experience. She believes it impacts emotions and is instrumental in the creation of a brand.

Kari first recognized her love of color and design early on. After working as an intern at a design firm throughout high school, she knew she found her calling. With 20+ years of professional experience in the industry, Kari has worked with some of the top design and architectural firms in the country, and has particular expertise with multi-family developments. Clients have called her “creative” and “focused,” and appreciate the fact that she always puts their interests and needs first.


We don’t just say we are a client-centric business. We listen, and enlighten, and strive to create a positive experience throughout the entire design process. That’s how we roll.  From concept to installation, we pride ourselves on delivering results with a sense of confidence and style.
