Finishes and final details make the biggest difference in how people read a space,” says acclaimed designer Kristin Rocke, owner of K. Rocke Interior Design. She adds unexpected elements to create artistic spaces that help people live their best lives. “We’re known for our creativity, efficiency and personalization,” she says. “I love helping people infuse their identities into their spaces.”

This Utah-based interior design firm has completed influential interiors across the globe. With an extensive and award-winning list of projects, Rocke has been listed as one of the “Top 10” Interior Designers by Traditional Home. Her work has been featured in various distinguished publications including Luxe Interiors + Design, Florida Design: Home, Boca Design, and California Home + Design and more. “I’ve been doing this craft for a long time,” she says. “I’m really excited about how we’re building on the broad foundation we’ve built over the years. We’re growing and taking on new challenges in architecture, hard finishes, space planning, locations and material requirements.”

From resorts and restaurants to retail shops and residences, the firm has completed projects coast to coast. “A dream team is made up of different players: the home owners, the architect, the builder and the interior designer,” says Rocke. “Each has different perspectives and objectives and all contribute valuable insight.”

“We just celebrated our 20th anniversary. Personally, I have more than 42,000 hours experience in design; my team has more than 86,000 hours collectively. That’s a lot of seeing and doing. Although we typically do modern design with a lively disposition, we have a vast range. It’s really fun working within different decorative languages simultaneously.”
