Kim McIntosh has been designing interiors for over 15 years in Beverly Hills, Manhattan Beach and Orange County California with her design company “McIntosh Designs”. Kim began her love affair with home furnishings working for furniture retailers in California including Pottery Barn, Room and Board and Jonathan Adler. Kim is now a Designer at ACC here in Santa Fe.
“My design philosophy is to create the atmosphere that fits the client’s personality and lifestyle by combining much loved family heirlooms with fresh new designs. I tend to think outside the box and find inspiration from the great designers who have come before me! Design should be fun, creative and collaborative!”
I am so excited to explore the possibilities of this year’s theme: Lux New Mex! One of the reasons people gravitate to Santa Fe is because of its roots in Spanish, Native American and American western styles. The combination creates warm, cozy spaces full of character and respectful of our colorful history. In re-inventing this amazingly diverse style, I hope to bring a fresh perspective incorporating a light neutral, clean pallet with rough wood and leather, denim and suede accents in unexpected ways. I plan to highlight local artists and create my own custom designs for some of the furnishings and lighting. It will be a white fiesta! Hope you enjoy it!! Kim
