My first decorating experience happened when I was in the third grade. My grandmother thought that I would enjoy redecorating my room as a good distraction from the arrival of a new baby brother. As we carefully coordinated bedding, window treatments, and wallcovering, my grandmother suggested that I study Interior Design. That treasured moment turned into a passion, and a bad habit of rearranging my mother's furniture!
In 2002 I received my Bachelor of Science Degree in Interior Design from Harding University. I have worked for Architectural Firms in Texas and Oklahoma, practicing commercial Interiors, and as a Design Industry Representative for wallcoverings and fabrics.
Kandi Hernandez Interior Design was born from the desire to design premium living environments for clients. KHID provides a defined process to produce thoughtful, purposeful, and timeless living spaces where family and friends connect. KHID has established a goal to partner as a team with our clients; to be honest; to bring value; and to provide excellent, clear, and detailed designs for clients & contractor follow through.
Besides practicing design, I am a wife and mother to four boys. Our family loves to play games, go camping, cook together, and travel. We are a military family, and have had the pleasure of living in Oklahoma, Germany, and currently Alaska. The diversity that comes from moving and experiencing life in new places has benefited my design skills and style. I strive to be understanding of all lifestyles, budgets, and design challenges.
