Designing with Kelly at Home

Living Room Color Palette

The old adage that the cobbler’s children have no shoes is so true!  People ask us all the time whether our homes are fabulous and filled with flowers, and sadly, they aren’t on both counts.  Between running a business, running a household and running around with our boys, we’ve had little time to really focus on renovating our 1920’s farmhouse and decorating…  that is, until now!

Inspiration for Living Room

What seemed like a daunting job (who has time to ponder paint swatches and hardware options?) has just gotten a lot easier thanks to our blogging bestie, Kelly, from Kelly Market.

High – Low

With a background in interior design and incredibly good taste (she loves Kelly bags (naturally!), Quadrille,  peonies, and faux bamboo), Kelly has a beautiful blog.  Her columns and mood boards are always so fresh and fun and we love her many columns.  Even her gift guide has inspired many a present!

Gift Guide for Her

Last fall, Kelly launched Kelly at Home, an e-design service that delivers her fabulous sense of style right to to your inbox (for a small fee, of course!)  and we knew exactly who to turn to for help.  All we needed to do is measure the rooms we wanted to tackle, complete an easy questionnaire and send her some images for inspiration.

Kelly to the Rescue!

Not only has Kelly sent back an ideal floor plan, she’s picking out the materials (paint, fabric, wallpaper, etc.), the furniture and the accessories and will even provide a shopping list and guidelines for implementing the design.  Now that demolition has begun, we’re up to our ears in swatches and samples… The cobbler’s children may not have shoes but we’re finally decorating a house!  We can’t wait to share some pictures once we’re done…

Are you tackling any projects this weekend?

    I have been living in a perpetual state of uncertainty so my house is not blog worthy at all, I can’t wait until I finally settle somewhere so that I can tackle big DIY and design projects. I think I will definitely be researching Kelly’s services – thanks for the introduction ladies!

    Hooray! What fun! I’ve decorated, but some things need replacing/redoing – it’s time! We’ve been here for 16 years this year. This sounds like a great idea – can’t wait to see it done.

    What a fabulous resource to know about!!! Knowing your amazing taste, the renovation will be magazine worthy. Can’t wait to see!!!

    The only project I’m tackling this weekend is trying to get my boys to all their activities while the husband is away. Busy, busy!!!
