It is always recommended to test color selections in all lighting conditions throughout the day before making a final commitment!

Samplize provides peel & stick real paint samples so you can easily move them around your home.  It makes sampling so much easier and less expensive than buying all those sample size cans of paint, not to mention it is much more environmentally friendly.

Houzz Review

Jodi Kelly is EXCELLENT!

She is such a pleasure to work with, really understands my style, and is very knowledgeable. She helped me select the right neutral paint colors for my house to not only fit each room, but to have a consistent color palette across the main floor. I was hesitant to hire someone because I felt like I should be able to pick a neutral myself, but there are literally thousands out there. She showed me how not all neutrals are the same, the undertones really make a difference in the feel of the color, and she walked me through the selection process. Ultimately, she made me feel much more calm and confident in my decisions. We are still months away from completing our renovation, but when we are, I plan to bring her back in to help tweak the interior decorating.

Jodi helped my husband and I “meet in the middle” on paint colors for the interior of our first home.

We’re newbies who relocated from NYC and needed guidance navigating our differences in opinion 🙂 and also expertise on the effects of natural light, indoor light, placement and so forth. Jodi came to our color appointment with swatches, one-sheets, apps and other tools in-hand, ready to accomplish our goal. We now have a home that looks and feels much more like us. Thank you Jodi and can’t wait to work with you on decor!

She was knowledgeable, thorough, diligent, and efficient.

We had an outstanding experience with Jodi. She was a pleasure to work with from the very first call until the end of the engagement. She was knowledgeable, thorough, diligent, and efficient. She really listened to the look and feel we were trying to achieve and came to the appointment ready to go having done her due diligence ahead. She followed through promptly after the appointment and was very thorough in all her recommendations. We had no idea how overwhelming and intimidating the process of picking paint colors for an entire house and kitchen cabinets could be and Jodi was a breath of fresh air. Highly recommend and would absolutely use her again in the future without any hesitation.

WE LOVE IT - and can't wait to work with her again on many other rooms in our space!!

I spent weeks (and money buying so many samples from Samplize & mental anguish) trying to find the right non-off white paint color for an open layout first floor with a beautiful yet complex kitchen that had a cabinet color that changed in light & various tones of grey in the backsplash. Jodi simplified the whole thing -- she did a great job of asking questions upfront about our goals, photos of the place, etc so she came prepared with already an idea of what could work which I really appreciated in terms of our time together during the visit. During her visit, she further narrowed down by applying her color science and amazing eye to find a color that met the feel we wanted but also matched everything else -- all our furniture, wood floors, cabinets, backsplash, etc.  Furthermore, I wasn't even thinking about the trim color other than a basic white. She helped us realize that a basic white trim could be too stark for the room & may make our off-white furniture look more cream against it.  She nailed the trim color - it's warm, inviting & flows with our off-white furniture.

It was money well spent!

I am an interior designer and after months of trying to choose an exterior color scheme, I decided it was time to consult with someone who has expertise in that specific area. I found Kelly Home Designs during an internet search for a local professional.  Working with Jodi was a pleasure from start to finish. She is professional and gets right down to business. It took just one meeting to choose a color scheme I was excited about and can't wait to get it done.

SHE NAILED IT!

I am the most indecisive person I know. I had been struggling with paint colors, literally for years, to update my home's exterior. I decided to call Kelly Home Designs for help. I explained my dilemma and Jodi was both understanding and patient. When she came to see the house in person, SHE NAILED IT! I'm thrilled and sorry I wasted all that time before calling.

Testimonial

This was our first experience working with a consultant

I would like to acknowledge and recommend Jodi Kelly. We are so pleased to know her as a person and a professional. I contacted Jodi with no prior knowledge of her skill or understanding of color and design. What a pleasant surprise! Jodi arrived at our home with a plan and explained how we would together accomplish color choices. She was concise and focused and knew how to utilize the time allotted for paint selections. Jodi has talent and training that guided us to find colors that would complement each other and work with our furnishings and hard finishes. This was our first experience working with a consultant, it felt joyful and was an amazing positive experience. We are looking forward to the final results and hope to be working with Jodi in the near future to complete other design projects.

I highly recommend her services, you will not be disappointed

I hired Jodi of Kelly Home Designs to guide me in choosing paint colors for my living and dining rooms. This was money well spent! Everyone knows how daunting it can be choosing color schemes... and you get frozen with indecision. Jodi came in, listed to my needs and worked with me to come up with some really perfect color schemes. She was very friendly and super easy to work with. She has experience with older homes and that was a huge plus for me. Colors were chosen and advice given based on my preferences and not what colors were "in" for the season. I also appreciated her non-judgmental demeanor. I've had other consultants in my home and frankly felt judged as if my project was beneath them. NOT the case with Kelly Home Designs.
