It's all about the mix

First in fashion and now in design, Kelly continues to thrive on incorporating unexpected elements, antique and vintage finds and one-off bespoke pieces to create statement environments.

 

Rather than a signature look, Kelly works within many genres that inspire her to always keep it fresh. Whether the request is for modern or traditional, bold color or a subdued palette the emphasis is on client collaboration, personality and place. Kelly is also known for her original art work often used to customize projects that add to the uniqueness of her work. Her interiors feel sophisticated, eclectic and curated over time. She believes that the energy of a beautiful, aesthetically alive space is real and tangible.

 

Simply put, good design is worth it.
