Beth Roman

Born and raised in Texas, I was steeped in the tradition that Southern women always make the effort. As a child, I remember being fascinated with Lady Bird Johnson, the epitome of grace and hospitality. Her inspiration and guidance have served me well, because I firmly believe that ‘graciousness and hospitality’ should always be considered as both a function and an outcome of great interior design. – Beth Roman


Schooled in photography and hospitality—particularly hotel and restaurant management—Beth Roman has been a mainstay of the Karen Rapp Interiors team for nearly five years.

One of Beth’s most important contributions to KRI’s residential design projects is the vast industry knowledge she’s amassed over the past decade and a half, working with many industry partners in the design field.

Beth says: As a design assistant and project manager, it’s important to listen to and understand the client, the lead designer, the vendors, the people in the workrooms, the builders, and on. Having the knowledge to translate ‘industry speak’ into plain language to help the client understand what’s at hand is, I think, an important skill, and one that I pride myself on bringing to the table.
