Kimberly Wynia, Design Coordinator
How did you join the Kibler & Kirch design family:
Growing up, my mother loved houses. I spent many Sunday afternoons going with her to open houses, looking at floor plans, and analyzing natural light and overall design. I grew to love being able to take a house and turn it into a beautiful home. I have also grown to love picking up a tool and helping a vision come to life as my DIY skills have increased. I come from a background in HR and Business Management but I wanted a job that would let me stimulate my creativity sufficiently to keep me happy and interested in my job for long term. I knew that what I really wanted was a job that would let me use my creativity, organizational skills, and people skills all in one. When I saw the job posting for a design coordinator at Kibler & Kirch I knew that it was the perfect fit. I am surrounded by amazing people with incredible skill and I love that I get to be a part of creating beautiful spaces.
If you were a piece of furniture what would you be:
I would most definitely be a lamp/light. Nothing is better than good lighting. I love it when people let their personalities shine and I strive to do that every day. Lamps also come in an endless variety just like people. You have to LOVE a good lamp or light fixture! They are like the icing on the cake!
What do you own that you would never get rid of:
Scrapbooks! There was a time when scrapbooking was my creative outlet. All of the way back to my high school years I kept a scrapbook to remember homecomings, proms, and general teenage shenanigans. As the years went on my husband and I grew our family to include four children. Much of their early years are chronicled in handmade scrapbooks that I spent endless hours on. Not only do I love looking back at them but so do my children.
What is your favorite design style:
I have to say that I am probably somewhere between eclectic and transitional. As someone with a large family I feel that things need to function first but that beauty comes in a very close second. I gravitate towards spaces that have great architecture, lots of light, and that are welcoming and warm.
