DESIGN NEWS: Hoskins Interior Design Passes the Torch to the Next Generation

Posted on under Press

Hoskins Interior DesignHoskins Interior Design will continue its almost 20 years of serving the Indianapolis interior design community by passing the torch on to the next generation. Kathy Hoskins has taken over the helm of the firm from Deanna Hoskins, who is stepping back from her 40+ year distinguished career. While this transition in ownership will bring some changes to the firm, the underlying philosophy of creating beautiful custom spaces for clients remains the same.

Deanna launched Hoskins Interior Design in early 1998 and Kathy, Deanna’s daughter-in-law, joined later that year. The continued success of the firm has come from the duo’s unique mix of skill sets, with Deanna bringing a deep knowledge of custom furniture and Kathy offering her background in project management and interior detailing. As Deanna has begun to phase out her role, the firm has been developing a team to continue to grow the business and expand their services. “Kathy is extremely talented, creative and capable,” said Deanna. “I know our firm is in good hands with her leadership and vision. To remain relevant in this industry, it is important to be flexible and welcome change. Kathy has always lived this attitude, and mixed with a strong foundation of designers, clients and vendors, the firm is poised to continue its success.”

According to Kathy, “Deanna has been a mentor to me and many other interior designers during her tenure. The team is happy that she plans to stay on to help with the long list of clients dedicated to her design philosophy. We are also happy that she is finally taking some time for herself after devoting the last few decades to her work.”

The firm will also be changing locations in November, moving from its downtown Broad Ripple location to the growing community of boutique businesses at the 54th & Monon Courtyard later this year. “We have seen a lot of growth in our firm over the past few years, and it was time for a change to a larger, updated space,” said Kathy. “We are thrilled to be a part of the supportive small business community Suzy & David Reese have created. Our team is expanding too, ensuring we can continue to provide the service and quality design our clients expect.”

Hoskins Interior design will be participating the Holiday Hop at their new space at 1100 E 54th Street on November 10 from 5-9pm. Please visit for more information.
