Tatum Kendrick - Founder / Creative Director 

I was born and raised in Portland, Maine where I played with sticks in the woods and wrestled with my brothers which naturally made me a competitive field hockey player which earned me an athletic scholarship to attend Hofstra University where I studied psychology and sociology which sparked a lifelong interest in the human condition and how we relate to our environments.  Then I entered the real world, where I was hired to work in Public Relations for Donna Karan in New York. But then I decided I needed to do a little more soul searching and a lot more living.

So I hiked the Himalayas, lived on the beaches of Malaysia and Thailand, studied Spanish in Argentina, sampled the good life in Brazil and Uruguay and finally found the answer I was looking for. I am an interior designer.  I was put on this earth to create livable spaces filled with interest, soul and spirit.

My design career began at Costas Kondylis & Partners, one of the most well regarded developer architects in New York City.. One day I was managing the library, five years later I was a lead designer and project manager.

Then I started my own studio in NYC where I designed townhouses, penthouse apartments and homes in the Hamptons, . Two years later I moved to Copenhagen with my husband for a sabbatical to study the arts in the design capital of the world and have a son named Smokey.  Two years after that we settled in LA and Studio Hus was born.
