'Be Fearless'-Coastal Living Takes Five With Kendall Wilkinson

Interior designer Kendall Wilkinson of San Francisco talks color, texture, and art with Coastal Living.

What should homeowners bring to a first meeting?
KW: Whether it’s swatches of fabric, images, or a Pinterest page, they need to come with whatever tools will help them communicate what they want out of every room.

Rule of thumb when using bold color?
KW: Be fearless! Just be sure to layer your shades with a mix of textures, patterns, and a cast of complementary hues for a grounded look.

For timeless style, take a page from...
KW: Albert Hadley, Sister Parish, Dorothy Draper, and Michael Taylor.

Favorite finishing touch?
KW: Art can elevate the overall look of a room. When starting your own collection, strive for a mix of mediums— photography, paintings, and sculpture.

Best materials for beachfront living?
KW: I stick to cottons, linens, and sisals. They’re light and casual.

Share your proudest design moment.
KW: I was working on a bedroom with a lovely hand-painted mural. Rather than risk blocking it, I created a custom Lucite headboard that didn’t hide a thing!
—Brielle M. Ferreira, Coastal Living, October, 2013
