Hi! I am Kelly Stacey Russell, an interior designer based in Auckland, NZ. After enjoying five years in the fast-paced event industry I pursued my lifelong passion for bespoke interiors; completing a Diploma in Interior Design. Barely a second goes by where I am not thinking about design, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I am passionate about creating comfortable, functional and stylish interiors. My style is modern and bold with vintage character, and I don’t do beige!
Everyone has a personal and unique story that can be told through the design and style of their home, the kind of home that your friends walk into and say “this is so YOU!”. And when we live in spaces that feel like “us” we are happier, more creative, and filled with joy every time we arrive home.
My ethos is that life is less about finding your dream home, and more about creating one. I have a particular affinity for renovations of old Villas and Bungalows, although I work with a variety of properties. I offer in-home interior consulting in Auckland and online eDesign interior styling packages nationwide as well as personal shopping and fabric procurement for interior projects.
As a new mother I’m always on my toes, but when I’m not taking care of my baby daughter and my ever-growing raft of houseplants, you will find me reading up on the latest interior design trends, upcycling furniture and indulging my obsession for all things vintage; scouring antique stores for character pieces to be celebrated in one-of-a-kind designs.
