Kelly’s love for interior design and the building industry began early on, from redecorating her childhood bedroom to exploring the job sites of her parents’ construction firm.
Her passion for design inspired her to pursue a Bachelor degree in Art from Auburn University. From there, she combined her love for art and construction background to launch her career.
During her years working for commercial construction firms, small business owners often asked for her design help, drawn by her artistic background and creative eye.
Through experience, and running her own business — Bliss Farm and Retreat — Kelly witnessed the importance of interior design in people’s lives. At the retreat center, participants frequently came to her for help with their own homes — sparking her next business venture.
In 2018, she opened Bliss Design and Interiors — to bring art and beauty into people’s homes. For Kelly, home is a sanctuary. She transforms each and every home into a space that feels like an oasis.
In 2021, Bliss Design and Interiors evolved into a new project, Abode Modern Home. Kelly saw a need for a decor retail store in Asheville and established Abode Modern Home; from a desire to create something new, fresh, and authentically her own. Her next step forward in the process combined forces of design, remodeling, and retail.
Abode Modern Home is about creating a lifestyle. It’s a way of being and living with positive intention, nurturing space, and cultivating a higher self.
When not working for Abode, Kelly spends her time writing, leading women’s circles, and traveling the world.
