Kevin Lee Hamby, RID, ASID

Kevin Hamby has always had the gift of creativity and artistry of design.  Even as a child, and now as an adult, everyone who knows him, knows Kevin has that special combination of style and substance… form and function. He is inspired by distinguished interior designers, from the celebrated Dorothy Draper to Kelly Wearstler, Candice Olson and Lauren Rottet, each of whom fuels his ambition to be just as exceptional.
Kevin is the founder and owner of Houston-based interior design firm, Kevin Hamby Designs. Prior to launching his company in 2013, Kevin was employed as an associate interior designer for Kirksey Architecture, one of Houston’s top 10 Architecture and Interior Design firms. Working at Kirksey gave Kevin exposure to a broader base of clients, such as River Oaks Country Club, Minute Maid Park-Houston Astros, Lakeside Country Club, Baylor College of Medicine and Landry’s Seafood Restaurants, Inc.

Over time, the refinement and cultivation of Kevin’s design aesthetic allowed him to create spaces that are engaging and dynamic, while being comfortable and inviting. His design style captures the essence of transitional style with a flair for glamour. Kevin has always been the type of designer who can see potential in almost any object or space. Whether it is an old wing back chair or an empty living room, he can breathe life into spaces, seemingly effortlessly.
   
Kevin graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Houston with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Interior Design with a minor in Architecture. Prior to finishing his bachelor’s degree, he earned an Associate of Arts degree from Houston Community College. Kevin is a Registered Interior Designer and holds a license to practice from the Texas State Board of Architectural Examiners. He is also a Professional Educator member of the American Society of Interior Designers-Texas Gulf Coast Chapter and currently is a Professor of Interior Design for Houston Community College.
