Drawing on numerous sources of inspiration, from world travels to a deep appreciation of nature, we bring an inventive approach to each project while aligning with our client's goals. 

Our experience working in tandem with the the building and construction industry equips us in providing guidance to our clients throughout the design process. Being well-versed about architectural styles as well as furnishings and decorative arts enables us to design interiors that personally resonate with our clients and that are relevant to the building architecture and overall sense of time and place.

We provide full scale interior design, partnering with homeowners and/ or with architects, builders, developers, realtors and other related industry professionals on residential, hospitality and commercial  interiors projects. We welcome the opportunity to work with you!

Kim McOwan, Principal Designer

Maintaining a firm belief that inspired design elevates the way people feel, Kim McOwan, Principal of Charette Interior Design, Ltd., approaches each project with that premise in mind. With a Certificate in Interior and Environmental Design from the University of California, Los Angeles and a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from the University of California, Santa Barbara, Kim intertwines the two areas of expertise to form the foundation of our design process.

Her career started under the guidance and mentor-ship of AD 100 designers, Rose Tarlow and Sally Sirkin Lewis, at their respective Los Angeles showrooms. After achieving her design certificate from UCLA, Kim continued to develop as a designer while working for a number of high profile firms such as SFA Design, Walt Disney Imagineering, Ellerbe Becket Architecture and Sony Pictures Entertainment. By combining the mastery achieved through her design accomplishments with her initial studies in the field of Psychology, she has fostered a creative approach to envisioning and implementing personalized environments for our clients.
