Coterie Crush on Interior Designer: Kenn Gray of Paducah, KY

Nov 13 2013

by Cheri Leavy

As an award winning Kitchen and Bath designer, Kenn melds his love for fashion and art into his projects. Creating a juxtaposition between the old and the new, his refined sense of style knows no limitations and no matter who the client, a marriage of style and sophistication is borne. Whether it is a ultra contemporary dining room, or a whimsical child’s play space, Kenn’s keen eye for detail has been written about and sought after for almost two decades.

We have enjoyed getting to know this OVER-THE-TOP personality hailing from Paducah, Kentucky and look forward to keeping up with him.

Check out Kenn’s favorites that he shared with us here…


Ethan Allen – So many thousands to choose from! An endless source of inspiration!

I painted the outside of my renovated home with it as well as the walls of the front drawing room.

Again, Ethan Allen. So customizable the possibilities are endless!


My personal southern essential for my own home is my grandmother’s collection of Candlewick Chrystal or my McCoy Pottery collection. Every home needs a reflection of its owner’s heritage! Nothing more southern that that!

Your style in five words or less:

Chic Nostalgia mixed with Glamour.
