Hendrick Interiors

Katherine A.H. Ballou, Allied ASID

From an early age, Kate Ballou’s parents instilled her with an appreciation of art and design. Noting that her mother is a ceramics artist and her father started painting later in life, “I became acutely aware not only of my surroundings,” Ballou reflects, “but also the impact my environment had on my mental, emotional and physical well-being.”

Eventually, this revelation inspired her to study fine arts at the Rhode Island School of Design and interior design at Parsons. After training at Baird Architects in New York and Jacobsen Architecture in DC, Ballou founded her own residential practice, Hendrick Interiors, in 2014. She focuses on selecting furnishings and materials and designing custom pieces and millwork that infuse functionality and beauty in a home while reflecting her client’s lifestyle. As Ballou explains, “I bring an analytical approach to my designs and enjoy collaborating with architects to select furnishings that respond to the volumes and materiality in their work.”

Ballou cultivates relationships with creative entrepreneurs around the world, and original art plays a major role in all of her projects. “Art adds an element of surprise, emotion and personality to a home,” she observes. “I continue to explore an array of resources to maintain a positive impact on the way we feel in the spaces that we inhabit.”
