Later, she focused on developing a small jewelry company called Pink Rock, NYC. Her hand made jewelry was featured on Daily Candy, NYC and in InStyle Weddings and sold in boutiques across the USA, Mexico and Europe.
The mid-2000s, when Kimberly until returned to Houston, to her roots, brought exciting change to Houston, with top-tier art exhibitions, chef driven restaurant openings, and a new focus on high design. It was a sort of inner-city renaissance for Kimberly's hometown, that brought with it, the sort of clientele interested in living in beautiful, inspired spaces.
Kimberly is married to a patent attorney she met while living in NYC and mother of three darling daughters, all of whom were born in Houston. She loves to entertain family and friends with elaborate dinners and parties and is always searching HAR.com for her next house/project.
Was born of necessity. With so many friends moving back to Houston, Kimberly was always using her experience in construction to renovate and then furnish the homes of friends and family. Other clients, known to Kimberly through word-of-mouth were soon to request her services, and she never looked back. Her passion and motivation to keep busy set off a considerably prolific career in full service interior design. The Recoverie Interiors was born.
