Meet Kate Light

K. Light Interiors


How you want to be contacted: 

Your scope of work: K Light Interiors is a full scale, boutique residential interior design firm based in Tampa, Florida, with clients up and down the east coast. From new construction to single room redesigns, K Light Interiors works closely with clients to create comfortable, polished settings, taking into consideration their individual lifestyle and personal needs. We find inspiration though travel, architecture, art, and most of all, our clients themselves! 



With a background in art history, Kate developed an appreciation for art and architecture while studying design in Florence, Italy. Ultimately narrowing her concentration to modern European art history, Kate graduated with a degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Growing up with an inherent eye for design, Kate followed in her mother's footsteps and began to focus her efforts on interior design. While in Atlanta, Kate had the opportunity to work with nationally acclaimed design firm, Courtney Giles Interiors, while attending design courses at Savannah School of Art & Design. During her tenure in Atlanta, Kate developed the ability to adapt to a client's personal vision by constantly exploring new creative solutions. 

Upon moving to Charlottesville, Virginia, in 2015, the ultimate goal was realized when K Light Interiors opened its doors. With her modern roots, Southern influence and experience in the Atlanta design space, Kate brought an eclectic array of design skills with a fresh look to central Virginia. With a few renovations and some fun projects under her belt, Kate and her husband returned to Atlanta, Georgia, and K Light Interiors opened its doors in Buckhead. Kate worked with clients in the greater Atlanta area to widen her range of experience, from new construction projects to single room revamps. In 2019, Kate and her family returned to her hometown of Tampa, Florida. K Light Interiors currently works with clients up & down the east coast, from New York City to Florida.

Fun Facts about Kate in her own words:

Favorite Color: I LOVE using color. Lately, I appreciate warm yellows, burnt orange and fierce reds but any color can be beautiful in the right application.


Favorite Food:  My favorite cuisine when dining out is Mediterranean but my family has roots in Spain and I love cooking the dishes I grew up eating at my grandmother’s home. I also went to college in North Carolina and quickly acquainted myself with Southern food. There are few things more enjoyable than a BLT with pimento cheese!  
Favorite Vacation: Spain! I feel at home in every region I’ve spent time in; whether visiting family in Madrid or eating my way through the culinary adventures of the Basque region, each and every time I’ve had to opportunity to go, I’ve felt a strong sense of belonging….a connection that runs deep. 
What book or TV series have you binged lately? Oh, I just finished reading Educated and it’s phenomenal. It offers a perspective on the privilege of education that one can easily take for granted. For a lighthearted book, I loved Cooking for Picasso. Three of my all time favorite things; Art, Food and Spain!
