Top Design Season 2: Getting to know Kerry Howard


Kerry (a.k.a. “Big Daddy”),40, lives in Atlanta, GA and is a true southern boy at heart. Raised in the small town of Easley, South Carolina, he always dreamt of becoming a designer. After graduating from high school and working in several non-design related jobs, Kerry realized it was time to make his dream a reality, and in 1995 enrolled in Anderson University, where he earned a B.A. in Art with a concentration in Interior Design. Kerry soon accepted a job with Broyhill Furniture Industries as an Upholstery Design Manager where he traveled the country designing showrooms. In 2003, he made the move to North Atlanta, where he currently resides and owns and operates Howard House Interiors. Kerry describes his style of design as eclectic, with a mix of traditional and contemporary. He is focused primarily on residential design work, although he continues to do showroom work on occasion. He believes, if not for his family’s love and encouragement he would not be the successful designer that he is today.

  1. I work with Classic English furniture so I can get a feel for Kerry’s designs. I like the contrasting colors for the work surfaces and the simpleness of the tiled floor.
    Sometimes in design I see people trying to do too much, not Kerry !
    Kerry has also given a rustic look with the table and chairs combination which I like very much.

    I would have a Kerry design, or perhaps it might be better to say a Kerry collection, in my house.
    Great stuff Kerry.
