Company Profile: 

Wilson Kelsey Design Inc.

Sally Wilson, ASID and John Kelsey, CAPS, began working together 30 years ago and formed their full service interior design firm in 1996. They are best known for their thoughtful approach to design, and their warm, approachable work style. Their ability to connect with each client, to uncover that client’s uniqueness, and to express it in their home, is their specialty. While they have won many awards and been published numerous times, they are understated, casual and unassuming. This understated personal style belies the fact that they are always on pointe, dedicated, and detailed minded. Their clients know that they will be taken care of, and no detail overlooked.

Both John and Sally have studied at architectural colleges and have a deep appreciation for classical work. Their love of older homes is evident. In their 30 year career they have worked successfully in modern styles, transitional, as well as traditional. Their hallmark is creating interiors that endure, regardless of style. There is always a feeling of gracious elegance in the homes they help create, even in the most casual of spaces. Sally’s upbringing in the south is rooted in gracious living and comfort. John and Sally believe that your home is your sanctuary, the place where living with beauty, order, and functionality, will increase your enjoyment of life ten fold!
