We’re creative souls above all else, making time and space for inspiration. It’s a constant process that both excites and rejuvinates us—and we incorporate that into our work.

Kari Armstrong

“Go confidently in the direction of your dreams! Live the life you’ve imagined.” – Thoreau


Great design elements are curated and collected—which is what Kari has been doing for some of the country’s most celebrated interior and merchandising designs for over 21 years. Kari is most thrilled when her clients are, and what thrills her is setting aside time every day to be inspired and to create.

Kasey Miller

“Integrity is doing the right thing, even when no one is watching” – CS Lewis


Team members at HRI don’t just feel like family: for CFO Kasey, they are family. Her greatest satisfaction is working alongside her sisters, overseeing the finances that allow HRI to create things that are even better in person than they were on paper.

Kate Pourhassanian

“What lies behind us and what lies before us are small matters compared to what lies within us.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson


Parlaying 17 years of marketing and development in the beauty industry into interior design and merchandising seemed like a natural evolution to Kate—and proved to be so. Today she finds beauty in being collaborative, creative, and inspirational and firmly believes in empowering the entire team at every turn.

Kimberly Kang

“You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.” – Maya Angelou


For more than 20 years Kimberly has had two main professional priorities: team collaboration and exceeding expectations. While her personal style may be described as Soft Modern, creating innovative designs that are true to her clients’ needs are a real thing of beauty.

Wendy Welsh

“Happiness is not something you postpone for the future; it is something you design for the present.” – Jim Rohn


After spending 10 years at HRI and almost double that in the industry, Wendy keeps herself inspired by learning something new every day. Of course, it doesn’t hurt to be surrounded by amazing clients and a talented team that she’s continually grateful for.

“Be true to yourself and you will never fall.” – Beastie Boys
