Hi! I am Kelly Stacey Russell, an interior designer in Auckland, NZ. I am passionate about creating beautiful, comfortable, functional and stylish interiors. My style is modern and bold with a touch of 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 Villas and Bungalows, although I work with a variety of properties, turning tired and forgotten rooms into rooms that you won’t ever want to close the door on.
I offer in-home interior consulting in Auckland as well as personal shopping and fabric procurement for interior projects and online interior design. Ultimately my favourite spaces to design are nurseries for expectant mamas and new babies.
When I’m not taking care of my 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 love for all things vintage; scouring antique stores for character pieces to be celebrated in one-of-a-kind designs.
