Jodi does miracles to a space.

Omg where do I begin? Jodi does miracles to a space. My husband and I asked her for a consultation and were so impressed we had her back to stage for photos. The realtor photographer was blown away. I personally loved her style and attitude: she uses what you have in the house and understands you have a budget. I can’t articulate how wonderful of an experience it was working with her. Such a pleasure and joy to work with. Thanks Jodi for all your work.

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.

I highly recommend Jodi for any renovations that you might want to do.

We hired Jodi to help with a "face lift" for our kitchen. She was wonderful and creative, especially with choosing paint colors for the cabinets to brighten and modernize the kitchen. She suggested a beautiful blue for the lowers and a creamy white for the uppers. She accompanied us to a quartz showroom to select new counters and a stone and tile showroom to choose a new backsplash. She also chose a beautiful color for the walls of our entire first floor and a coordinating color for the powder room. Jodi's prices are reasonable, and she guides you through each step of the process.

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.

Jodi is a wonderful design consultant!

She rearranged her schedule and made herself available when we needed her most.. We were struggling with color choices for all the rooms in our newly purchased Cape style house. We just couldn't figure it out. Jodi came and within 2 hours we had picked the right color for each room. We also had an amazing consultation with her regarding renovating our new home. She agreed with most of our ideas and gave us additional options to think about. We can't thank her enough for her guidance and advice. The results were amazing! Thank you Jodi!

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.

We were completely blown away by her recommendations!

We took notes in the Home Staging Report and Checklists packet that Jodi provided. She gave us incredibly useful pointers and suggestions, reminding us that it wasn’t necessary to go out and buy new things - we could simply make use of, repurpose and move around items we already had in our home. We ended up following ALL of her recommendations! Our house truly sparkles and is a home we are now completely proud to showcase! It’s so beautiful we wish we weren’t selling!

Jodi was instrumental in helping me prepare my home for sale

As a result of her advice, I was able to get myself organized, understand the process, and best of all, my home sold within 3 days of being on the market, at 30K over ask! She was precise, responsive, and having her come to my home on photo day made things much easier.  I would recommend her services without reservation.

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.

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.

We were immediately impressed by her knowledge and experience

We were so fortunate that our realtors recommended a consultation with Jodi to give us suggestions on staging our home. We were immediately impressed by her knowledge and experience that we hired Jodi on the spot. She gave us amazing advice on preparing our home (our homework) and used many of her decorative items in our home for the first weekend of showings. Prospective buyers were so impressed with our home that we had 2 offers by Monday and closed within weeks! We believe Jodi was a huge reason our home sold so quickly and would highly recommend her to all.
