MEET THE

With her unique sense of style, KaNisa Alberto draws inspiration from world cultures, traditions, and international design aesthetics. Her eco-conscious design approach, understated elegance, functionality, and luxe design are all hallmarks of her extensive experience in residential remodeling, interior design, and architecture. 

 

Since starting her design career in the mid-2000s, she has worked with some of LA and INDPLS' most respected design and architectural teams. A selection of collaboration projects has been recognized and published in major media magazines and television programs.

 

The passion for redeveloping and redesigning the spaces of her friends and family began at an early age for KaNisa Alberto. The vast world of interior design was influenced by her mother and aunt's artistic DIY home improvement approach to affordably luxury. Having been influenced by their example, she sought a career path in which she could make use of her skills. Graduated from Purdue University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Interior Architecture, followed by a BS in Business Management from Western Governors University. During her time at Purdue University, she was mentored by one of Indianapolis' most renowned Black female architects. Ms. Dotson with WDI Architecture encouraged her to pursue art in its most authentic form in order to avoid the fear of rejection and acceptance. Following the advice of her mentor, KaNisa relocated to Los Angeles, California, where she accepted a position with one of LA's top black female celebrity designers Brigette Romanek of Romanek Design Studio. Here she collaborated with Business Executives, Movie and Music Makers, Singers, Actors, and World-Class Athletes and Publishers. This experience would sharpen her skillset and introduce her to the world of bespoke eclectic interior design and affordable luxury. 

 

After gaining experience in handling high-end build-outs and overseeing the overall design process and execution, KaNisa began conducting her own research and building an impressive clientele list. During the research and discovery phases, KaNisa was approached by a crowd with requests for affordable luxury. She ended up breaking down barriers and creating her staple company, Introspective Design, which makes luxury accessible to people of all income levels.

BETTER SPACE FOR YOU AND ME!

Contemporary Home Decor_edited.jpg

We are able to reconnect with nature through our most intimate spaces.

Through the use of natural elements that are often seen, touched, and experienced outdoors in our designs. We bridge the gap between the outdoors and our indoor environments and allow our homes to become more than simply a drop zone.

Every decision is informed and influenced by this level of consciousness. Whatever your opinion about it, when you create or recreate a new space, you are influenced by how it will feel, look, and act to a person. You will willingly lean into this when designing, furnishing, and styling your entire house or business, so it matters to both you and the end-user! It is no secret that when done correctly, it has a profound, significant, and truly transformative effect on our health and well-being. To ensure that you get the most out of our services, we thoroughly research the best options for you and your guests.
