Kathryn M. Ireland
British-born, pre-eminent interior designer Kathryn M. Ireland is a true citizen of the world. From her legendary “sympathetic restorations” of landmark architectural houses and hotels to extraordinary homes for the Hollywood elite, the star of Bravo’s Million Dollar Decorators brings the best attributes of grand European style and cool California chic to every project. A die-hard fan of bold color, the layering of pattern and texture, and the beauty of imperfection, Ireland’s interiors convey an easy, elegant vibe that is worldly and chic, yet effortless. Kathryn has also established herself as a major force in product manufacturing and has been dedicated to producing her bespoke textile collections, weave collections, and upholstered goods all locally in the United States.
Beyond her eponymous lines of textiles and furniture, Kathryn has most recently set out to disrupt the digital design industry with her newest venture, The Perfect Room. Backed by three decades of experience in luxury interior design, Kathryn has – through TPR – introduced the first luxury online concierge design service, providing curated products and unparalleled design expertise in a simple online platform. Kathryn has also authored 6 best-selling books, including her most recent, Kathryn At Home, and has collaborated with several home furnishing brands including Grange, Scalamandre, and C2 Paints. Kathryn has also acted as the North American Brand Ambassador for beloved European appliance brand AGA Rangemaster.
Adding to her long list of credits over her multi-hyphenate career, Kathryn has long developed and hosted Design Retreats each summer at her home in the south of France, and regularly hosts design bootcamps in Los Angeles. At each she offers insight on her favorite local resources, professional expertise and storied experiences to help others succeed in the design industry.
Kathryn has appeared as an expert on Good Morning America, Access Hollywood Live, Good Day LA, and E! News. A shelter magazine favorite, Kathryn’s design work appears frequently in Elle Decor, World of Interiors, House Beautiful, Veranda, Architectural Digest, Vogue and InStyle. Kathryn is consistently featured on Elle Decor’s A-List and is one of the Top 25 Interior Designers as listed by The Hollywood Reporter. When she’s not designing or entertaining, Ireland divides her time between her home in Santa Monica, CA and her restored farmhouse in southwest France.
