Professional Interior Design
by Kevin Allister Garcia
"Every occupier of a space knows how he/she wants that space to look and feel, even if it's challenging sometimes to fully articulate that vision. My role as your Interior Designer, is to unlock that emotion, to develop it into your desired design".

Hi I'm Kevin, the founder of Desired Design
I've been designing interiors for more than 20 years, though the majority of my working career was in banking. I left the corporate world however to pursue my design passion, bringing with me the client experience mindset of a Banker, the creativity of an Artist and discipline of a Project Manager.
Managing design projects requires more than an appreciation for colour palettes and fabric swatches. It has evolved into a broader discipline that calls for the application of proven management principles, attention to site safety and a growing concern for our natural environment, to ensure successful outcomes. For these reasons, I pursued an MBA from the University of Bedfordshire and a Certificate in Circular Economy and Sustainability Strategy from the University of Cambridge's Judge Business School.
If you have design ambitions that you want to make a reality, have a look at my work in the gallery, read what some of my clients have to say about the Desired Design experience and let's have a chat!
You can put my expertise to work on your project and can reach me via any of the channels included here on the Desired Design website.
