Meet Kirsten !

Kirsten Hess is the principal designer behind HvK Interiors. Kirsten began her design career in 2013 and honed her design skills under the mentorship of the innovative commercial design firm Shikatani Lacroix as well as the celebrity Architect and Designer, Dee Dee Eustace, at Taylor Hannah Architect. 


In 2019, after moving back to her hometown from Toronto and welcoming a new baby boy, Kirsten decided it was the right time to launch her own firm. Now at the helm of HvK Interiors, Kirsten translates her knowledge of branding and marketing into her love for Interior Design. She is passionate about building homes and businesses that are genuine expressions of her clients' stories and believes that good design will stand the test of time.


Kirsten holds a B.A. in Communication Studies from McMaster University and a diploma in Interior Design from The Academy of Design. She lives in Hamilton with her husband and young son and works from her design studio to bring the HvK aesthetic to clients throughout the GTA.

"It's all about establishing a classic base and layering in the unexpected pieces. That interesting tension is what really takes a room to the next level!"  - Kirsten H.
