About Kara: 

Kara Cox is a people person by nature and an interior designer by trade. Passionate about connecting with others and learning about her clients desires and lifestyles, Kara strives to create lasting relationships that enable her to design beautiful spaces that are fresh, tailored and timeless. She expertly pairs homes like her own 1954 mid century modern with softer, traditional interiors and infuses more classic homes with a fresh dose of color, modern art and tailored simplicity. 

Growing up in the heart of the furniture industry in central North Carolina, Kara learned to appreciate quality craftsmanship, the tradition of furniture making and importance of supporting our local artisans. Studying abroad in Italy while studying at UNC Chapel Hill and living in New York City exposed her to the fashion industry which helps her marry tailored details in her design process like dressmaker skirts, subtle trims and unexpected color combinations. A love of travel abroad, good food and the arts has led Kara to a life of constant exploration. Whether searching out new artists, sources or tradespeople, she is always striving to bring the best collection of goods to her clients.  

After returning to her native state of North Carolina, she served as editor for a home furnishings magazine covering national and international trade shows, trend forecasting and gathering an extensive base of product knowledge. Building upon her expertise, Kara followed her passion for design by obtaining her interior design degree. Kara trained under Lindsay Henderson Interiors, one of North Carolina's premiere residential designers before establishing her namesake design firm in 2010.  

Kara’s work has been featured nationally in magazines like Traditional Home, Domino and HGTV Magazine. Her client projects have graced the cover of publications like Triangle Home and Design, Seasons and O. Henry. She’s been regularly featured by design bloggers and partnered with industry insiders from Alden Parkes to Uttermost and recently launched her first licensed collection of kitchen and bath designs with Thompson Traders. She served as a Style Spotter for High Point Furniture Market for 2019.

in her own words...

"I grew up in a small town but I am a city girl at heart. I love the mountains more than the beach, Coke over Pepsi, yoga over sports and on the weekends you may find me scouring vintage stores for treasures or on the back of my husband’s Harley Davidson."
