Kelsey is a designer who draws inspiration from around the world. She and her husband love to travel, visit antique shops, coffee houses and check out historical buildings, where she collects new ideas for future projects.
A Colorado native, Kelsey attended the Design Institute of San Diego and also worked as a graphic and web designer before landing her dream job with Tracy Lynn Studio. She understands space planning with creative room layouts and particularly enjoys putting the finishing touches on a space.
With a specialty for ground-up builds, Kelsey loves picking every finish and detail; these projects can take up to two years to complete and she takes great pride in getting to know her clients during this time, turning their wish list into a reality with their beautiful homes. A natural communicator, Kelsey is also very skilled at working with builders and contractors and is an expert at translating a client’s vision to her trade partners allowing her to maximize her resources and carry the vision through to completion. This trait also servers her well when doing remodels and smaller renovations. Not only does Kelsey possess creativity and innovation, she is also very detail oriented and organized making the design process smooth and easy for her clients and industry partners, which ingratiates her to everyone she works with.
Kelsey employs a classic yet livable style to her designs, mixing vintage finds and heirlooms with more contemporary pieces, often relying on her knowledge of detailed millwork to make a home feel special. Designing spaces where families come together is Kelsey’s favorite part of her job.
“Just wanted to jot a quick note to let you know how delighted we are with Kelsey's work on our home! She transformed the boys' room into a playroom, and refreshed and rejuvenated my office/guest room. We're so happy with everything - the boys are ecstatic with the reading and lego-playing nooks, and I'm so pleased with my very comfortable desk/stools, and the much more inviting guest space. I especially enjoyed working with Kelsey too - she "got" our vision right off the bat, was easy to work with, and very accommodating to adjustments and questions, plus I loved how she took the ideas and ran with them on her own.”
“Kelsey transformed the room into something absolutely fabulous. She managed to maximize the space and add enough seating for our family. The room now looks current, in a soothing color scheme we had discussed and includes our own artwork… Before starting on the project we had a complete budget worked out which we were able to stick to. Kelsey included me in all the decision making and always kept me posted on the timeline.”
“Kelsey was an absolute joy to work with right from the start! She informed us about our different options for keeping costs down, had wonderful ideas and incorporated my personal tastes. She coordinated all the contractors’ schedules so the work was done as quickly as possible with the least inconvenience for us. I was involved with all the major decisions of furniture and color schemes, but all the decorations and special touches were a surprise on Reveal Day. When I came home that day I felt like I was on a home decorating show and was amazed by the transformation. We did three rooms and they are absolutely my favorite rooms in the house. I can’t wait to do more projects with Kelsey!”
