NEWH - Fall 2018 - 44

Q&A

MEET

Kacey
Sharp
How did you become involved in NEWH?

I started in college, when I was looking at all the design industry had to offer. I appreciated
NEWH's community and support. My senior year in college I was the top scholarship
recipient, and this allowed me to be able to complete college. I continued my involvement to
give back to an organization that has given so much to me.

What has NEWH done for you, both personally and professionally?

I could go on for a very long while about this. Simply put: I would not be the person I am
today without the support of the NEWH members on both the Houston and national levels.
I have received an outpouring of help when I was out of work looking for a job, and support
when I have had personal hurdles. Many members have become my family, and I couldn't
imagine my life without them.

What are you most looking forward to in your NEWH role?

President of the Houston
chapter and lead designer,
Inside Evolutions

I am in a unique opportunity where I am serving a second term as president. This has
allowed me to continue developing and teaching our younger board. These ladies have
come up with new ideas for the chapter, events, and how to gain involvement. There were
many lessons that were taken from my first year that allow me to be a stronger leader for
my chapter. I plan to continue to push our chapter to amazing new levels of involvement and
offering quality events to the community.

Tell us a bit about your company and what's new.

It's been a great year with Inside Evolutions. We saw a use rise in K-12 education, college,
and hospitality in 2017 and believe state and local government will continue to rise. Our
partners came out with amazing new products, and we couldn't ask for more.

Latest (personal) travel highlight or plan?

I will be spending a week in August to explore Colorado. There are plans of hiking trails,
historical visits, and hopefully a lot of good food and drinks.

Industry trend you are paying attention to? One you'd wish would go away?

Resimercial has continued its growth, bringing home luxuries into the workplace. The other
major trend I see is a push for more biophilic design to help improve the workplace and
individual productivity. One design trend that needs to go away is millennial-targeted design
movements. Design has become so centered around one group in the marketplace, and that
in the end will stifle growth and process.

When you aren't working or at an NEWH event, where can we find you?

I am a woman of many hobbies: I appreciate a good day fishing, relaxing by the beach, or
refinishing an old piece of furniture. I also really enjoy exploring new cities, and this allows
me to practice my growing photography interest. ❙❘❚
