Cecilia Walker is an interior and textile designer, former Head of Design for a coworking, hospitality company whose scope of work includes a commercial portfolio of over 200,000 square feet of creative office space, residential renovations in New England, New York, Los Angeles and an eponymous textile and wallpaper line.  

A former fashion industry veteran, Cecilia worked with companies including Laura Ashley, Inc., Ann Taylor®, Levis®, Keds® and local designer, Hadley Pollet, giving her a multi-faceted background in home furnishings, apparel, footwear and accessories both on the retail and manufacturing sides of the business.  In 2006, she launched Cecilia Walker Design. Her latest endeavor into fabric and wallcovering has brought her back full circle to her fashion  days reigniting her passion for sketching and product development.

An Associate member of the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) and WELL Accredited Professional (WELL AP), Cecilia was born in Washington, D.C., spent her childhood in Los Angeles, went to high school in Milwaukee and landed in New England with a short stint in NYC. She is also a mother of four—three of whom are triplet girls!  

Cecilia earned a BA in Economics and Art History from Boston College.

Personal style: Clean-lined simple + edgy (California surf meets New York black.)

Favorite place: Nantucket Island, Massachusetts.

Playlist favorites: Eminem's "Sing For The Moment," Coldplay's "Life in Technicolor," and Queen's "Under Pressure," but, even so, still has every ticket stub to Pearl Jam's concerts dating back to 1992.

Fun fact: In 2015, she competed with Tracy Foley (Water & Main) on a TV episode of "The Endless Yard Sale Showdown," in a race to find the most valuable antiques and vintage items.
