Kitchen and bath designer Paula Kennedy is a great partner with Monogram, whether serving as a judge in the Monogram Dream Kitchen Design Contest or as the designer liaison at the Monogram Modern Home tour stop in Seattle. Paula will now be joining Save Room for Design as a blog correspondent so let’s learn a little more about her.
As an Interior Designer of 18 years, and a Creative all my life in one form or another, design is a second career post Corporate America. Being a designer provided an outlet for my desire for creativity. Falling in love with the Kitchen and Bath field offered my left brain the joy of digging into the technical details and my right brain the ability to play with space and color.
I am a Certified Master Kitchen & Bath Designer through NKBA, received my CAPS, Certified Aging in Place Specialist, through NAHB, in addition my recent certification as a Certified Architectural Color Consultant. I have been honored in the last 18 years as an award winner, locally and nationally published, and a very active industry volunteer and leader. I am a self-proclaimed fourth generation Serial Entrepreneur.
Recently reinventing myself creatively, I survived the recession, and am embracing a calling to teach, inspire and write. This new expression has exploded my career diversity in a way I never imagined. My desire is to continue sharing my journey and what I’ve learned along the way, inspiring others to expand their experiences, spreading and sharing knowledge of innovation and creativity.
Creating a better quality of life for all my clients is at the heart of my business purpose. This drives my passion for Timeless Design that works well, feels right and looks good!
A favorite quote by a client and now a friend; “I know many people who “love” their job, but Paula’s joy of what she does is positively infectious.” I am taking that infectious passion into inspiring my peers and other Creatives to move beyond their comfort zones to having a space and life that is more fulfilling.
