HOW WE WORK

A successful project is when our client feels that their interior is an expression of themselves. It’s not about our personal style—but about how we can help clients better express their own. We never lose sight of this, and strive for transparency and timeliness with all our clients.

Utilizing our extensive training and experience in architecture and construction, BK Interior Design has the capability to design from the ground up. We can do everything from moving walls to designing custom end-tables. Our expertise in finishes and our rich background in myriad design aesthetics give us the ability to cater to all design styles. And whether in California’s wine country, the beaches on Long Island, or a highrise in Chicago, our interiors always reference context, purpose, and place.

BRAD KREFMAN
OWNER

Brad began his design career at the office of Thierry Despont, where he was fortunate enough to work on everything from five-star international hotels to high-end residential homes. It was a formal training steeped classical proportions, fine detailing, and luxurious finishes. 

After a decade in New York, Brad moved to San Francisco to head the interior design department at Backen Gillam Kroeger Architects. While at Backen Gillam and Kroeger, Brad completed numerous high-end residential projects, as well as Sonoma and Napa Valley wine-tasting rooms. Working on more rustic, relaxed environments has built on Brad’s conviction that a home must function in its environment.

Brad holds a BFA in Art History and French from NYU, and an MS in Interior Architecture from Pratt Institute. He lives in Mill Valley with his husband Eric and their French bulldogs, Leo and Gemma.
