I love to find new interior design portfolios to share with you in my Saturday 6 posts but occasionally, I find one that makes me stop and really study their style and what they do so well. I became familiar with Meg Kelly’s work when she was a designer at Pencil & Paper Co. (another favorite). She has since started her own firm, Clella Design, named after her grandmother, Clella Belle. Her style is casual, collected and colorful. She might love green as much as I do and often pairs it with red for a fun punch. She also has a knack for collecting and pairing art to make it look seamless. These images are from her own home, photographed by Alison Gootee, styled by Matthew Gleason and featured in Southern Living earlier this year.
- I love all of the pattern play. It’s more of a “anything goes” approach and nothing feels too overthought.
- Stripes are a great “neutral” when it comes to mixing in other patterns.
- I like how she only wallpapered the back (half) walls of the living room to connect it to the entry in the same paper.
- Picture lights elevate any artwork.
- She created flow from room to room by repeating the fabrics on the walls and pillows and windows.
- Don’t miss an opportunity to bring art into the kitchen.
- Always a fan of a countertop lamp, especially a pretty vintage one.
- I vote for more fun bold color on bedroom walls. The green on the ceiling makes the whole room.
- A small corner is easy to overlook when you’re decorating, but it’s actually the perfect spot for a desk/gallery wall combo.
- The red accents in this pink and green bedroom are so fun. Love the painted trim on the cabinetry.
- And who says you can’t use red and green together throughout the year? Black and white tile (and the bathroom pendant) make it fresh and modern.
