“Since I was a child I've internally designed homes and searched for treasures to create vignettes.
I am an observer of people & my surroundings, a connector of others and I always aspire to create genuine relationships.
My favourite feeling is when something speaks to my creative heart or when I have created something that speaks to someone else's.
I am motivated by the places I have travelled and the things that I have not yet experienced.
This isn't a job to me. This is my outlet.”
After working in sales & event marketing positions for many years I made the decision to stop denying my passion for the interiors of homes, use my design education and go for it. In 2010 I returned home from working overseas and started my design career journey. First working in retail of home goods, then at a leading staging company, which led me to co-founding an Interior Design Firm with a colleague. My foundation was made.
In 2016 I decided that it was time for me to venture out on my own and I left our firm to start Kyla Ray Creative. I didn’t have a clear path in mind for KRC, all I knew is that I needed to continue to work for myself and a traditional interior design firm model wouldn’t work for me. So I got my hands in a lot of pots, asked a lot of questions and kept my eyes & ears open.
What became apparent to me is that I am a visual storyteller. Whether I’ve been working on a clients residential home or a display suite the story of who is going to use the space and what is going to be attractive to their specific story is what makes me tick.
I want to help you create & develop your story.
