Design Awards 2017
(page 1 of 6)
Last winter, we asked 417-land’s interior designers to show us their best projects for our annual 417 Home Design Awards contest. We sent all 55 entries to the Kirkendall Design Firm in Tulsa, Oklahoma to be judged on aesthetics, design skill and narrative explanation. We received the highest-scoring entries and our Creative Director, Heather Kane, toured each finalist’s home in person to take in the beauty and functionality for herself. Get lost in the photos, and then start planning your very own dream home.

Julia Kirkendall is the Principal Designer and mastermind behind Kirkendall Design in Tulsa, Oklahoma. She started the company in 1993 and has completed some amazing projects, both commercial and residential, over the course of the years. A big-picture strategic thinker, Kirkendall takes a hands-on approach, and her willingness to take risks has kept the firm on the leading edge of high-end design for decades. Her passion for the field was evident as a child. Armed with paste, paint and a cardboard box, Kirkendall turned recyclables into miniature dollhouses, complete with wallpapered walls, slipcovered furniture, window coverings, rugs and art. Being the fifth of eight children, she learned early on how to be heard and have confidence in her convictions. Kirkendall was born and raised in Lima, Ohio, where her family lived in various era homes. This early exposure to great architecture came to have a lasting effect on Kirkendall’s own personal style.
