Kerry Ann Dame, Designer


Kerry Ann Dame has over twenty years’ experience designing interiors, furnishings and accessories. After completing a degree in Art History at U.C.L.A., she was recruited by decorator Michael Smith to work with prominent designer Lynn von Kersting at her Los Angeles design firm, Indigo Seas. Kerry Ann spent the next three years learning the design business from the ground up. With a clientele that included celebrities and studio executives, this experience was the best training a young designer could wish for. Projects she played a key role in were published in House and Garden, House Beautiful, and Country Living, as well as the books “The Floral Home” and “Country Kitchens”. Relocating to South Carolina, she operated a large fabric and design shop from 2001 to 2015.

Kerry Ann’s interiors are a mix of livable comfort and low-key sophistication.  She focuses on unique furnishings of lasting quality and enjoys helping clients incorporate antiques and fine art into their homes. A frequently published writer whose articles on design have appeared in numerous local and regional magazines, Kerry Ann’s interior design projects and products have been featured in local and national magazines such as Coastal Living, Southern Living, SC Woman, and Coastal Carolina Homestyles.
