Kiki Luthringshausen started her interior design business in 1996. Kikiís background was in Art History at DePaul University where she studied abroad in Florence, Italy. Upon returning from Italy, she moved to New York and worked for a small couture fashion house working in every aspect of each collection. Returning home from New York to be closer to her family, she decided to blend her knowledge of art, fashion and interiors. It is then she realized her potential and started to pave her own path of creating beautiful spaces for private clients. Her love of textiles and textures has grown to be her signature style along with pairing unexpected elements for each space. Kiki is self taught but has studied drafting and CAD and brings a fresh perspective to any set of architectural plans. Her love of architecture and interiors is clear in her passion for each project. Her mission is to create a balance of modern and traditional resulting in timeless design.

 Several years ago, Kiki began working as a featured design expert for local TV networks. Her segments showcased design trends and how to create stylish spaces on your own. Her work has been featured in both regional and national publications. Kiki also began writing as a design expert and had a featured article in the Chicago Daily Herald during 2008. In 2004, Kikiís own personal renovation of her home was an episode of New Spaces on HGTV.

 Kiki lives in the Northwest suburbs with her husband Vincent and their four children, Lauren, Hudson, Lucie and Thibault. She loves to cook and entertain for her family. She is also an Executive Board member on the Associate Board for Common Threads.
