The kids have left the nest.

I’m finally ready to build the mountain house of my dreams.

I want a beautiful kitchen I love to cook in.

Does this sound like you?

Maybe you have a Pinterest site full of ideas boards, or a folder full of magazine tear-outs.

But how to start? There are so many choices and you want to make the right ones.

Hey there. I’m Kevin Carpenter, Interior Designer. Let’s make your house your perfect home.

I work with clients to create the homes of their dreams, whether they are designing from the ground up, refreshing their existing home after the kids have flown the nest, or updating a kitchen or master bedroom. Maybe your current home is perfect and you’re ready for that dream second home.

Kevin Carpenter Interiors is a North Carolina based design firm. I am fully committed to the process from first consultation, planning, product/furniture selection, construction supervision, to final move in. Consider Kevin Carpenter Interiors with anything you can imagine for your home. I will make it a reality.

I began my career twenty years ago with Gail Brinn Wilkins ASID, and continued honing my skills at top Charlotte architecture firm, Meyer Greeson Paullin Benson. I have a core principal that good design is best when done right the first time. I am an expert at space planning, custom molding details, and made-to-order furniture, cabinetry, furnishings, rugs, and window treatments. I bring my considerable experience to each project, guiding clients to casual, beautiful, functional interiors that reflect their individual style.

I’m all about making the design experience easier and more fun for you.

A great client/designer relationship will include a free-flowing exchange of ideas, sparking open discussion. It’s a two-way street with mutual respect between my clients and me. I believe in casual, productive meetings whether in your home, at the construction site, or in product showrooms.

Good design happens from collaboration between client, architect, contractor, and designer. A good designer should challenge you, hopefully beyond your expectations. This is a time for you to go beyond what you believe is possible or what you’ve “always” done. You owe it to yourself to be open to new patterns, types of furniture, ideas that spring from our collaboration together. And you won’t have to sift through thousands of decisions on finishes, paint colors, furniture, cabinetry, lighting. I’ll narrow down choices like these into a manageable few so you can pick with confidence.

I believe in being realistic and upfront about expectations, budgets, pricing, and deadlines.

Lastly, designing your home should be a fun, exciting, rewarding experience.

“We worked with Kevin to do an extensive renovation of our mountain house, and he did an excellent job. We were thrilled with the results. He understood the look we were aiming for and guided us every step of the way to realizing it. He has a great sense of design, always steering us in the right direction in terms of paint color, furniture/furnishings selections, artwork, etc. The contractors he recommended were top-notch, and he supervised the entire project, which involved a lot of moving parts. His billing practices were clear and dependable. He has all the qualities you would want in a designer — he’s creative, collaborative, organized and professional. In short, he’s a joy to work with, and we would recommend his services to anyone.”

I have worked with Kevin on the interior design for three different homes over the years. He has always strived to make the space reflect the look I wanted rather than his own. I have the utmost confidence in his recommendations and have learned to trust his opinion implicitly. Having that trust makes the design process much more enjoyable. I also think that hiring the right designer will ultimately save money by avoiding costly mistakes. Kevin is a talented, experienced designer and is a pleasure to work with.
