Kirk Riley Design is a boutique interior design studio specializing in vintage residential renovation. Heather Kirk is the principal with nearly 20 years of experience remodeling homes, kitchens and baths in and around Seattle, Shoreline, Kirkland and other Puget Sound neighborhoods.
Heather is well-informed and involved in every facet of remodeling: from plans to material selections to working with contractors to overseeing the realization of the design. She’s a kitchen and bath specialist known for her attention to detail, combined with an inspired use of color and her outstanding customer service.
As a Southern California native Heather studied Business Administration at Cal State University Long Beach before completing her education at The Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising/FIDM with a degree in Interior Design. She is a member of both the National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA) and the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID).
Founded in early 2004, the firm was chosen as a featured designer in the Assistance League of Southern California Design House. Heather also taught up and coming designers at FIDM before relocating to the beautiful Pacific Northwest. She lives with her family in West Seattle in a 1940's cottage-style house.
We engaged Heather’s design services to help us fundamentally and completely remodel the interior of our mid-1960’s ranch home. Our goal was to seek a timeless feeling and style that would update the house with current surfaces and systems, accommodate and be reflective of the 1960’s vintage of the home, and serve us well in our retirement years. While pointing out that styles and designs change so often that it is difficult to create a strictly classic or timeless design, Heather did an exemplary job of achieving our goals and creating a comfortable, functional and pleasing residence that included a fully remodeled kitchen, remodeled bath rooms, updated interior and exterior paint colors, and all new tile, carpet, hardwood flooring, doors, trim, baseboards, light fixtures and hardware throughout. She was also willing to provide us advice as to appliance selection and the placement of artwork and furnishings. We have received many compliments from family and friends relative to the quality of Heather’s design recommendations, as well as from the contractors who executed Heather’s design.

"Heather immediately understood I had a distinct design style and she always presented choices that would fit in with my taste and palette. The tiles she chose for our bathroom remodel look fresh and contemporary yet fit right in with my mid-century-aspiring-to-minimalism aesthetic. I look forward to more projects with Kirk Riley Design."
-Shannon F. – Seattle
“Heather is like having a good friend who has knowledge of the construction process, materials, and is willing to do all the leg work to complete a project. After discussing our ideas about the remodeling of our retro bathroom and the complete rebuilding of a second bathroom, she took measurements, made her suggestions, and drew floor plans. She even designed and drew plans for each tile in our retro bathroom. She researched fixtures, floor coverings, hardware, lighting, tile, paint colors----everything for the project and brought pictures or samples for us to make the final decisions. She then coordinated with the contractor, trades, and vendors to purchase everything. She even found the correct screw for our retro cabinet.
We feel Heather saved us money with a major suggestion to just remodel our retro bathroom instead of tearing everything out and building an entire new bathroom. We are pleased with both our bathrooms and certainly recommend Heather.”
-John and Carol – West Seattle
“I had a wonderful experience with Kirk Riley Design. Heather was very patient as I “grew up” as a client and came to accent the things I wanted would actually cost. She helped select the contractor and took care of every detail. It was wonderful. And I am thrilled with the results. I still love my bathroom, a year after it was renovated.”
-Deborah H. – Seattle
