BY KYLE TIMOTHY BLOOD
Interior designer Kyle Timothy Blood is known for his serene and inviting residential schemes that are rich in layers-combining classic pieces with contemporary lines that impart an understated, timeless, quiet elegance.
His design approach is tailored to each client, whether he, or she wants a sophisticated urban aesthetic or a family-focused one that is certain to transition well over time. Regardless of the design style, and Kyle is well versed in many, he believes that a successful space relies upon a balance and harmony of proportion, pattern, texture, color and scale. Further, Kyle believes that any scheme will succeed only when every person and every object has a place to go, to rest, to live.
With Kyle's knowledge of architecture and the construction process, he knows how to work alongside architects and builders, creating well-designed "shells" for homeowners. With renovations as well as newly built residences, he has served as both Owners' Representative and Project Manager. Kyle is particularly known for his kitchen and bathroom designs, not only for spatial flow, utilitarian ease and functionality but also for his knowledge of current and durable industry products. Notably, a Moroccan-themed bathroom was named House Beautiful's "Bathroom of the Month." (See under "Published.")
In 2004, Kyle launched his design firm, Kyle Timothy Home, LLC, after a career in publishing at Forbes, Country Living, and Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, where he was involved in editing, branding and product-development management. He graduated cum laude from Dartmouth College in French and Art History and then taught in Paris on a Fulbright scholarship. When Kyle turned his attention to his passion for design, he studied at the New York School of Interior Design and was later accepted into the Master of Architecture Program at Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCIArc).
Kyle combines creativity, business acumen and experience with architecture and project management; Cottages and Gardens Publications (HC&G) named him the Design Director for its 2008 Hamptons Idea House. In addition to being published often in HC&G, Kyle's work has appeared in House Beautiful, Boston Home, Cape Cod Magazine, and East Coast Home & Design.
Kyle Timothy Home, LLC is a boutique firm based in Manhattan and has projects along the East Coast, in New York City, Westchester County, Connecticut, the Hamptons, Cape Cod, and the Great Lakes region.
