“She respected our classic style while introducing new elements & ideas to keep our design exciting but timeless.”

My husband and I recently built a house, and were feeling overwhelmed with all of the details and choices we had to make. Thankfully, we met Kelsey through a mutual friend. Kelsey helped us select everything for our new home- trim styles, tiles, lighting, paint colors, floor finishes, and even the little details like door hardware styles. She respected our classic style while introducing new elements and ideas to keep our design exciting but timeless. She also furnished multiple rooms for our home, and was able to beautifully incorporate new pieces with existing ones. We really could not have kept our sanity throughout the construction process without her, and we absolutely love our new home design. Paul and I have a couple more rooms and outdoor spaces we would like to decorate next and we will definitely solicit Kelsey's expertise again.

“Thoughtful, professional, and always willing to go the extra mile for her customer.”

My husband and I have been working with Kelsey to gradually update our living and dining room spaces after renovating our house. Kelsey took the time to understand our style and objectives then presented us with a variety of options, both in terms of budget and design. She has a great eye for patterns, textures and tones and how they work together and compliment one another. Kelsey is a pleasure to work with; thoughtful, professional, and always willing to go the extra mile to please her customer. The house we built now feels like a home and Kelsey had a lot to do with that. We look forward to more design projects together!

We continue to be amazed at the subtle, sophisticated composure of our home’s style.”

We were novices to building a house and to a process where decisions needed to be made very quickly. This was very overwhelming to us. We were so lucky to have Kelsey who seamlessly guided us every step of the way; from lighting fixtures to bathroom fixtures, from tile and countertops throughout the house, to floor type and finish. She expertly helped with virtually every decision, not only making critical recommendations but also gently steering us away from ideas that didn’t fit with our modern, transitional themed house. 

We have been delighted with the house we have been living in for nearly a year. We continue to be amazed at the subtle, sophisticated composure of our home’s style, that included concepts made from paint finishes, the kitchen backsplash and countertops, the marble-topped center island, the contrasting wood floor. Kelsey, in a most genuine and personable manner, drove the process to create an elegant home. We could not have gone through this process successfully without her. We very much look forward to future opportunities to work with Kelsey.

Thank you so much for your dedication to the bathroom renovation. The transformation has been amazing, and I am very happy with the way it turned out.

We live in a beautiful home -- thanks to Kelsey Johnston. 

Kelsey's honed sensibilities for color, pattern, texture and placement make our house fit within its place on the water along the Connecticut shore. Our home is calming for us, and, at the same time, designed to withstand the onslaught of our boisterous and large family when they visit.

Kelsey listened to our needs and wants, accommodated our quirkiness with enthusiasm, and helped us to create the home we had dreamed of when we embarked on this project. Ours was a worthy partnership, and we are delighted with the result.

Kelsey is absolutely phenomenal at what she does. As a builder, we sometimes butt heads with interior designers, however, Kelsey knows how to work in our team environment. Whether it is a speculative or custom build she knows how to put the perfect touch on every room in a home. Our customers love her and so do we!
