Undertaking a major renovation is challenging and the most important task is to interview and select the right professionals to help you. We interviewed several firms in the Sacramento area and selected KKDL. That decision was one of the best ones we made. Kerrie and Kasey are very talented, professional, responsive and the fee was very reasonable. They were always open to questions–and I asked a lot!— and worked really well with our general contractor. KKDL helped us pick all of the design finishes for our home and later on with choosing the furnishings. We would highly recommend them to anyone looking for help with their renovation or design project.

“Kerrie and I serve together on ASID’s National Board of Directors, and it was clear to me early on that Kerrie is so much more than a creative mind. Kerrie is an entrepreneur, a marketer, a business leader, a mentor, and a connector. I mention connector because it was Kerrie who introduced us to Cosentino with whom we now collaborate. Kerrie is always “on” and seeks to put people and companies together whether to simply kibitz, share or collaborate. Bottom line: if you don’t know Kerrie, you should!”

David Kennedy, Brown Jordan

“Kerrie possesses a brilliant personality and professionalism that makes working with her a happy and positive experience always. At Cosentino, we have an amazing collaboration and partnership with Kerrie that spans several years. We love working with such a professional who cares about her clients, her work, and her brand image. Kerrie is always available to brainstorm and finds the best way to promote our latest ventures. Over the years, we have done several social events, speeches, Instagram takeovers, video content, tradeshows, and trend analysis with her as our spokesperson. She shines on stage when speaking and entertains audiences narrating her design expertise. To top it off, she develops a monthly newsletter full of valuable information on our industry.”

Massimo Ballucchi, Cosentino

“Kerrie has been an incredible asset to our magazine, Furniture, Lighting & Decor since we launched in 2017 and rebranded in 2018.  She is an instrumental part of our advisory board and continues to guide us in specific content direction for our designer and retailer audience.  Her knowledge and understanding of what our readers need to know and her ability to supply incredible takeaway insights has been invaluable.  Kerrie is always willing to offer suggestions and help whenever possible.  Making connections for people is one of her strong suits.  Our brand is stronger for having her associated with it.”

Susan Jones, Furniture Lighting & Decor

“I have had the privilege of working with Kerrie for over a year and I have found Kerrie to be incredibly thoughtful, responsive and always willing to go above and beyond to deliver for the client. The fireplace and insert industry has a long way to go in terms of marketing and social media. Kerrie used her interior design expertise and social media insight to not only establish the Mendota brand on platforms such as Instagram and Pinterest, but we are now reaching interior designers, architects, and influencers that we previously had little means of connecting with. This type of content in some of the most influential digital spaces is proving to be a pivotal moment for the growth of the Mendota brand. We are incredibly pleased with our engagement with Kerrie, and I look forward to continuing our partnership with her and her team in new and exciting ways.”

Andrea Dietzenbach, Mendota Hearth

“Kerrie Kelly is superwoman. For 7+ years, she’s contributed monthly home design articles in a variety of topics to STYLE Magazine’s “Home + Garden” department, where I serve as the editor-in-chief. Her creative, clickable content is consistently delivered in a timely manner and requires little to no editing. What’s more, it’s informative, fresh, and engaging. She is quick to respond, easy and enjoyable to work with, and always on the cutting edge of what’s happening in the design world. Kerrie is a powerhouse in her field and earns my highest recommendation. I look forward to many more years of partnering with her.”

Megan Elaine Lim, Style Media Group

“I have a very established luxury design firm in Sacramento, Nar Design Group. I recently moved my location, changed my branding colors and company name. This is where I decided to call Kerrie Kelly. Kerrie has always been on my radar for incredible branding and communications capability. I hired Kerrie to put the word out with TV, news outlets, local media and reaching out to international interests. As a promoter of my Grand Opening, Kerrie did a fabulous job keeping me informed, setting up proper interviews, media contacts and following through with a very robust action plan to meet my specific goals. As many know, I am very picky and would only hire the best for my projects and it was a complete success hiring Kerrie to take on a high-level promoter and influencer role for my company. I plan on hiring Kerrie again for brand expansion soon. Successful people hire successful people.”

Nar Bustamante, Nar Design Group

“I am overjoyed with the window coverings.  You listened to what I wanted and delivered beyond my expectations.  The result is gorgeous and I could not be happier. Also, Danny is a real pro. Everything is aligned perfectly, and how considerate and patient he was to make sure that everything was explained to me as far as operation and placement of the controls. Truthfully, Kerrie, I cannot be more grateful to you for providing me with something that makes me SO HAPPY! A ‘Thank you’ is not really enough, but, until someone comes up with other words, these will have to do.”

T. Stidum, Sacramento, CA

“Our project was a full update, including bathroom and kitchen, of our 1920’s Spanish bungalow. While we did not move any walls around or do any additions, they helped with nearly every surface including counter tops, tile, hardware, hardwood floor stain, window design, courtyard gate and paver walkway and interior and exterior paint colors. Basically, everything you can see in our home. Jill and Erika did a great job. They completely understood the look we were going for and nailed it. They have a great eye for color, textures, and layout. The result is absolutely beautiful and everything flows really well together.” {Houzz}

T Battistessa, Sacramento, CA

“Kerrie was terrific in spite of the fact that I was almost broke having just closed escrow on my little midtown flat in Sacramento. She took on the challenge and she and Kasey nailed it! They transformed my empty little flat into a classy and comfy place. Mostly while I was elsewhere by the way. We agreed on what they came up with in their lab and then I just stayed out of the way. It’s awesome!” {Houzz}

R. Caselli, Sacramento CA

“Kerrie Kelly Design Lab is precisely the right business to take your home to the highest level. For years, the rap on me was that my taste level was underdeveloped and it resulted in nothing being done for fear of making expensive mistakes Kerrie and Jill- (her experienced colleague) came into my home and pretty much asked me to show them around. From then on, they exchanged ideas at rapid fire- and upon reaching consensus would verify that it was directionally correct with desired outcomes. They also measured- and before they left to create the magic “look boards”, we agreed upon a budget for entire project.

The look boards meeting began with the following statement from Kerrie: “if you can’t contain a smile when you see something…that’s exactly what should happen. If you don’t react in this manner- it’s not on the table/I will not put in your house”. She was 100% right- some of the choices and completed rooms in pictures were…impossible to not be ecstatic. Knocked it out Of the park.

Kerrie and her team do great work. I never once felt uncertain throughout the client cycle from ideas, to designing and selection of perfect pieces that complement each other and the overall aesthetic…of the house’s style. She managed contractors and the kitchen renovation easily, and even picked out hard scape material (a terra-cotta colored tile laid in a letters of Herring Bone) and stones for a contrasting retaining wall section- it looks unbelievable and finishes off the Mediterranean influence of the house’s style. We came in right on budget, time, and…I would call it the single most successful project done (we have done a ton of renovations in the decade to improve value in most expensive retail geography in USA to keep it current). Custom pieces and the final touch by someone so skilled and I live in a resort, basically. It’s intentionally comfortable, yet has some of the key design elements from KKDL proprietary methodology that also keep the comfort…interesting, contemporary, and original…it’s basically perfect. And I am grateful and appreciative of KERRIE KELLY DESIGN LABS TEAM- and in particular the founder and leader for her patience…and friendship…from day 1. It doesn’t get any better. {Houzz}

J. Lake, Oakland Hills, CA

“Kerrie Kelly and her entire staff have been wonderful to work with. We had a near empty living room and dining room and they helped us fill the entire room from floor to ceiling with Furniture, lighting, rugs, and artwork. The whole gammit and its absolutely beautiful! I couldn’t have imagined it any better. I can’t believe its my house! They were spot on with our style and wants and respected our desired budget. Her entire team is friendly, fun, personal, professional and always attentive to questions and concerns. I have used Kerrie Kelly for multiple projects (master bedroom, family room, hallway, outdoor living) in my home and will continue to work with her and her staff.” {Houzz}

C. Whitson, Sacramento, CA

“Our experience working with Kerrie Kelly Design Lab was fantastic! Their professionalism and keen eye for design is unmatched. We embarked on a total remodel of our home and could not have made it through the process without Lori and the team at Kerrie Kelly. Lori patiently worked with us from the beginning, starting with the floor plan design; to be sure we achieved the goals we had for the use of our home. With her help, we selected interior/exterior colors, lighting, cabinetry, flooring, counter surfaces, furnishings and the list goes on. Our project turned out Beautifully!!” {Houzz}

J. Hemington, El Dorado, CA

“Kerrie and her team were not the first designer I met with, but they were certainly the last.  After meeting with other well known local East Sacramento design shops  I left feeling more confused and frustrated then when I walked through the doors.

Kerrie was a completely different story.  She got it.  I am a stay at home mom with two young and energetic boys and the last thing I have time for is to do the research and find good quality furniture that fits our space.  Kerrie and Katie listened to me and completely took the reigns.  All I needed to do was pin my favorites on Pinterest (which I have time to do…) and pick out some favorites on Houzz and they did the rest.

They provided me an extensive breakdown with several options for each type of piece I was considering. It amazed me how they mixed and matched materials and somehow managed to make it all look beautiful. They even helped me to use existing items to blend with their new design and coordinated with contractors for painting, hanging pictures, etc.

When the time came for the “reveal”  I didn’t know what to expect.  If I could describe it in one word it would be “WOW”.  I was drawn to tears.  I felt like I had officially grown up!

Thanks you for everything!”

E. Gonsalves, Sacramento, CA

“I moved to Sacramento three years ago, with a house full of furniture too big and the wrong style! We had downsized from 4,000 sq. ft., to 2800. Totally by accident I wandered into Kerrie Kelly’s design studio and the warm reception and energy just swept me away. But I really was not sure I wanted a decorator…I still went ahead and arranged a home visit. Kerrie and her associate Jill Williams, listened to my comments, Kerrie was willing to incorporate my sentimental family items into a new design and she was patient with my being a “faux”designer, and I appreciated the quality of the furnishings Kerrie provided. I have had so much fun working with Kerrie and her staff, they are professional but not stuffy, they want your home to reflect you and not a cookie cutter design. I highly recommend Kerrie Kelly!!!” {Houzz}
