Kenya Jones-Lowell, an interior designer with the Rice Fergus Miller architectural firm in Bremerton, has been selected as one of Boutique Design magazine’s rising design stars.

An interior designer with an acquired neurological disability, Jones-Lowell is passionate about disability rights and design justice in the hospitality industry and her community, the company said in a news release.

As a member of RFM’s hospitality team, she works alongside architects, owners and engineers to ensure successful, beautiful and functional build products, the company said. She has previously been recognized for her creativity, innovation and advocacy work, and her projects have been featured in more than 150 publications.

Her most recent designs include airports for “fixed-base-operators” in Seattle and Denver, as well as a casino floor renovation. Jones-Lowell recently completed work on the 7 Cedars Hotel in Blyn, Washington. The destination property was designed with the Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe as a vehicle to share their story and culture through architecture and interior design, RFM said in the release.

“It is truly humbling when you are entrusted to help communicate such a vibrant story,” the interior designer said. “Working with the Coast Salish tribes has been an absolute honor.”

Jones-Lowell and 17 other designers were selected as members of the 2021 Boutique 18 Class based on criteria by the Boutique Design editorial team and were nominated by industry peers, RFM said.
