Katy Sears | Principal Designer & Founder

We are all a culmination of our journey. Who we are today has a direct correlation to where we have been.  

Growing up in Colorado established within me a deep appreciation for the sacredness of our natural surroundings. I have always been fascinated by both the abstract and physical elements that make up a structure, and more specifically the interior environment that exists within. As a child, I collected architectural magazines and in combing through the pages of floor plans I'd imagine how an entryway might welcome its guests, or how the morning light would flood into the bay windows of a breakfast nook announcing the start of a new day. 

The aforementioned childhood pastimes developed a love affair for architecture and design. I pursued a fine arts major with an emphasis on interior design. Relocating abroad to expand my studies in London, and completed my degree cum laude at the Art Institute. Starting my career at powerhouse industry leading firms like Gensler and Richmond American Homes elevated my design aesthetic to achieve a balance of being timeless and yet forward thinking. This harmony in oppositions creates a dynamic environment that supersedes trends and guarantees longevity, which I believe adds great value to the work we do.    

Establishing roots in Southern California over a decade ago, I feel a tremendous amount of gratitude that my journey has led me here. To live in a place that is surrounded by so much natural beauty, and through Grawski Studios utilize my gifts and talents to enhance the lives of others is for me, the ultimate dream.
