Kelly is an animal lover and often designs pet-friendly interiors for clients who share that love.

Kelly is a seasoned professional.  Her creativity, flexibility and attention to detail has  earned her a loyal following of clients and confident referrals.  Her designs are versatile,   as she does not adhere to one particular style, but rather uses her extensive design experience and expertise to individualize each project to the tastes and needs of the client.  She often uses the architecture of the home  or cherished personal collections or artifacts for inspiration. Whether traditional or contemporary, eclectic or glam, transitional or minimalist, her designs are classic and withstand the test of time.

Since childhood, Kelly has had a passion for Interior Design and considers it her favorite hobby as well as her career.  She began her career as  a practicing, full-service Interior Designer in 1987.  She has years of experience in high-end residential as well as professional office Interior Design. From inception of the preliminary design and conceptual drafting & shopping phase to expediting through final installation of furnishings and accessories, Kelly does it all.

After graduating from design school she worked with “The Designing Women”, a well known high-end design firm in La Canada Flintridge, CA.  She actively participated with The Designing Women in five world famous Pasadena Showcase Houses and traveled to such destinations as Los Cabos, San Francisco and Palm Desert to design client’s vacation residences.  Since 1998 she has enjoyed working on her own, creating beautiful and functional interiors for happy clients all over Southern California.  In 2004 she participated in the New West Symphony’s Ventura County Design House in Simi Valley.  In 2009 she colaborated with a designer friend on a fabulous large project overseas.  She also recently designed the production office of a highly successful actor.
