About Kevin Serba
Kevin grew up in Grosse Pointe, MI where his family had a floral and design business. After attending Eastern Michigan University School of Design, he purchased and ran the family business, overseeing its development into a stronger design direction. After seven years, he sold the business and was hired by Perlmutter-Freiwald, Inc., an interior design firm, where he apprenticed under Daniel Clancy. Kevin spent 16 years at the firm, became a senior partner, and developed a large, high-end clientele.
In 2005, he left the company to develop Serba Interiors LLC where he has continued to develop his interests in collecting antiques, art, furniture and unique accessories. This passion for art and antiques is an important influence on his design work and contributes to the creation of interiors that reflect a unique and interesting perspective. Versatile and creative, Kevin enjoys many styles of design from modern to traditional.
Throughout the last 26 years in the business, he has gained tremendous experience in new construction and home remodeling. His work has been recognized with seven Detroit Home Awards and projects range from a small studio condo to a 22,000 sq ft home that took over two years to complete. Kevin enjoys all aspects of the design and construction process, attends to every detail and takes the stress out of the decision-making process for his clients.
An active member of the community, Kevin supports Motts Children’s Hospital in Ann Arbor, Cranbrook Art Institute, Hospice of Michigan, and Lighthouse, among others. He has presented lectures and hosted several events and fundraisers for community groups and garden clubs. When not working, he continues to explore his interest in European antiques and worldwide travel.
Originally from Bloomfield Hills, Jennifer comes from a family of art collectors and dealers. After graduating from the University of Michigan, she began her interior design career at Perlmutter-Freiwald and later spent several years with Brian Killian & Co. Her role at Serba Interiors – providing designer, client and trade support – has broadened her involvement with small business development while still allowing access to the design process. Jennifer enjoys the collaborative nature of her work and the ability to share her enthusiasm for design, renovation and construction, and interest in the decorative arts.
About the Studio
Our studio is a converted warehouse that combines tall ceilings with white walls and provides a great backdrop for collections of art, furnishings and accessories. We have a complete resource library of catalogs, fabrics, wall coverings, floor coverings, etc. as well as showrooms and warehouse space. In addition to the well-stocked inventory, we are always changing the space when new architectural elements or interior furnishings arrive and encourage our clients or prospective clients to come visit this creative environment.
About the Birmingham Rail District
The rail district has proven to be an exciting place to be located – there is constant change in the development of new businesses. In the five years since we’ve been here, there have been many positive developments (and parking is easy!). Although previously a light industrial and warehouse area, the Birmingham Historic Rail District has become a growing place for business of all sorts. Our neighbors include an antique shop, architectural studio, law firm, tailor, kitchen store, gift shops and several others. Restaurants are expected to open soon and there are plans to build a train stop which will bring even more growth. We are fortunate to be part of such a vibrant business community and look forward to seeing what’s next.
