Katie Rioux

As the saying goes, sometimes the thing you’re meant to do in life is right in front of you.

At the ripe old age of 7, I watched as my mom made a decision to start her own business. Little did I know that 19 years later, I would follow in her footsteps and become an award-winning Interior Decorator, with my own business and three incredible women by my side.

This journey started with these life changing words from my mother in between beachside Mai Tai’s “Why don’t you take over my business?” Maybe it could be that simple, I thought.

Far from simple, though rewarding, this business has provided me with a platform to really own and build on my skills, process, and design philosophy. It’s been a space to watch incredible connections unfold and bold designs transpire. Most importantly it’s been a place to mess up; to be human; to take risks and the most daunting of all – to bet on myself. Self taught, with a natural design eye and the desire to make a difference in the lives of my clients, I have never looked back.

Transforming over 200 homes over the last decade has taught me that you can always create something new, vibrant and bespoke when you just stop and listen. I’ve witnessed countless times that a little design intention and care can instantly turn a house into a home – and hope with all my might that we can help many more experience this.

As I continue to cultivate my vision and move into an established stage in my career, I have begun to look beyond interiors and inward to a team eager and willing to learn and grow beside me. More than ever, mentorship has become a natural and meaningful role in the work I do, and I am continuously inspired by the women that surround me! In thinking BIG, this is where I believe I can truly give back to make a real impact on the world, and can’t wait for what the future holds. Cue the goose bumps!

With this, I am thrilled to present DWK Interiors – a company that has evolved over the last 10 years into something I am very proud to share.

At DWK, we are driven by seamless, client-centric design. Offering warmth, approachability and support in a seemingly overwhelming industry. We draw on diverse skillsets and experience, to offer award-winning design to fit every style. Creating inspired character interiors that truly move you.

Alongside my incredible team, I look forward to meeting you as I continue on this design journey.
