My name is Kenzie Leon Perry and I am the Creative Director for Ze Haus Interior Design Studio. I am a licensed interior designer, specializing in hospitality, commercial and residential spaces. In addition to designing spaces, I am also a visual artist and product designer, creating wallpaper and fabric collections for my brand.
Born and reared in Miami, Florida and having worked as a Sr. Designer for Sandals Resorts, Inc. in the Caribbean for half of my career, I love nature and the tropics. My design aesthetic, coined Tropic Art Nuvo, is inspired by the tropics with emphasis on artistic elements such as hand painted murals and custom wallpaper designs, blended with eclectic styling featuring bold colors, prints and patterns. My goal is to save the world from white walls and boring interiors, by infusing spaces with soul, character and personality. The heart of what I do begins and ends with the concept.
Since launching my brand in 2020, I’ve been featured by Panaz Fabrics, Curated Quarters Magazine, Business of Home, Lonny Magazine, Spoonflower and Aphrochic Magazine. I was also named 1 of 28 Black Tastemakers by Angela Belt and I am the Southeast Grand Prize Winner of Jaime Stern Rug Design Contest for 2021.
I give back to my community by raising scholarships for my alma mater, Florida International University’s Festival of the Trees event and mentor graduate students annually. Currently, I am completing an art series entitled People & Plants, which focuses on the relationship between humans and nature.
In my leisure time, I enjoy singing, writing and recording music. I also enjoy thrifting, traveling, yoga, meditation and entertaining family and friends in my home.
Deco Mango Design Inspiration
Entirely inspired by nature, Deco Mango blends photography and graphic design into one harmonious design. The inspiration derived from decaying nature, photographing the organic decay of a mango leaf and book matching the pattern to resemble sacred geometry. The result resembles a vintage deco pattern utilizing color tones indicative of tropical sea life.
