Kathleen Finnell Interior

Kathleen Finnell Interior Design, founded by the talented Katy Finnell, is a testament to a career enriched by diverse experiences and a bicoastal aesthetic. Born and raised in Southern California, Katy's journey in design began with a BA in English from the University of Southern California, further honed by a certificate in Interior Design from Parsons School of Design in New York. With over 30 years in the field, Katy has infused her design ethos with influences from her time in Brussels, Detroit, Manhattan Beach, and her 25-year residency in Connecticut. Her designs are a harmonious blend of West Coast ease and East Coast sophistication, focusing on classic, streamlined, and casually elegant living spaces. Specializing in residential design, club consulting, color consulting, and custom furniture, Katy's approach is comprehensive. She collaborates closely with architects on both commercial and residential projects, ensuring a cohesive vision from conception to execution. Working alongside associate Matthew Tyrrell of Fairfield, Connecticut, Kathleen Finnell Interior Design offers a full spectrum of services, including schematic design, space planning, selection of fixtures and finishes, sourcing of furniture, lighting, and accessories, and even custom furniture and lighting design. The design process is meticulously tailored to each client, encompassing everything from initial consultations and budget planning to the customization of unique furniture pieces and coordination with contractors. Kathleen Finnell Interior Design is your go-to for a space that is not just visually stunning but also a true reflection of refined, livable artistry.
