About this pro

After working in the design/ build industry for several years, my decision to finish my education in the interior design field at FIDM (Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising), graduate with honors and complete my NCIDQ requirements, was the best decision of my professional life!

I have a passion for interior design, a full vision for space planning and a background in color consultation. I design with clarity and communicate knowledgably with clients and homeowners. I love to rise to the challenge of finishes and final design!

Since I became a professional member of ASID, I have worked as lead designer on government, contract, residential, medical and hospitality projects. I also have a large body of work in remodels, with an emphasis on Kitchen and Bath design.

    Shelley remodeled my kitchen, bathroom, laundry room, etc. and I could've never gotten a better job from anyone else! When people come over somebody always asks about who did your remodel. If you're thinking about using anyone else I wouldn't advise it! Shelley knows her work!!! Very talented!!!

    We have worked with Kiski Design for many years with our customers in our Painting business as well for our own home. Shelley has a great eye and mind for whatever you are putting together. Whether it's a complete house, commercial space, furniture, accessories or finding the right paint and stain colors. She covers it all and I have never been disappointed nor have our customers.

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?

Do your homework. Make sure your designer has the proper credentials (certifications, CEU's, licenses- where needed)

What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?

The budget, timing and any wish list items they will need. The more information up front for the designer, the less it will cost and the quicker the project will be completed. Plus, no surprises will make for a very happy client!
