We were looking to modernize our kitchen, and Kelly came in and did a phenomenal job. She took into account our lifestyle and our appliance needs, and she was able to add in a new a few unexpectedly awesome design twists of our her own. I would certainly recommend her to anyone looking to redo their kitchen. She came with us to pick our tiles, cabinets, kitchen hardware, and her opinions were very helpful.
Kelly helped us redesign a very small kitchen in a 100+ year old home. She offered 3 alternatives and found a way to make the space much more usable with lots of additional counter space and storage. Her direction on cabinets, countertops and tiling was also very valuable! We are very happy with our beautiful new kitchen!
Description Of Work: Kelly carefully orchestrated the remodeling of our Kitchen and PowderRoom. Design and collaboration were excellent from the start. We had very specific ideas (probably a designers worst nightmare) which Kelly seamlessly formed into a producible vision. The transformation of our kitchen from a desperate space into a modern, highly-functional yet beautiful piece of art is testament to Kelly's capacity, imagination and--as was the case with our project--dedication and resilience in the face of unforeseen and un-controllable challenges. Specify Design is solid & we'll be going back to Ms. Brown for future projects. . . repeatedly.
I am currently in the process of working with Kelly Brown of Specify Design on a few smaller projects. Her expertise has been invaluable and will save me time & money. I realized, had I done these projects on my own, I would have chosen the wrong materials, mearsurments etc for the project. Not all projects are DIY! And not every employee at a hardware store is an expert, so it pays to hire one! Kelly's design experience is helpful for the small project of redecorating or updating a room to a complex remodel of a kitchen or bath.
We hired Kelly at Specify Design to help us redesign our entire 2BR condo after a complete fire casualty. She provided us with the highest level of detail and attention that we didn't even know we needed. She had many suggestions along the way on where to save money and spend money in order to create the most value. The result is the perfect level of modern and classic with upgraded functionality in all spaces. Overall her work was A+ quality and we look forward to working with her again on our next project.
