Kelly Ivaska, Interior Designer in Redondo Beach, CA. Kelly's roots strongly lay in the beach community where she grew up. She is a sought after designer for her ability to transform a home with her fearless and exuberant accessorizing and creative design.
Raised in the South Bay, Kelly attended UCLA Design Program and began her career merchandising for the retail store Maison Luxe in Manhattan Beach, formerly owned by Michael Moloney from the hit television show Extreme Makeover Home Addition.
Soon thereafter, Kelly was busy with design consultations and building a widespread clientele from the Valley to San Diego.
Through her many years of constant floor changes in the retail world and her love of world travel, Kelly has created a personal signature that is coastal contemporary with eclectic worldly accents, but always remaining classic. It is evident in her designs that Kelly has a keen sense to mix vintage elegance with modern sensibility resulting in a creative juxtaposition that is interesting and beautiful to the eye.
Kelly launched her residential and commercial design firm in 2009 and boasts a variety of projects ranging from a multi-million dollar home fully staged to sell, an LAX based jet Company's home office with vintage aviation theme and several residential homes, including a contemporary – tropical Philippines inspired home by architect Luis Tomaro in Manhattan Beach.
Every new project and new client inspires Kelly to think out of the box and create new ideas for beautiful new spaces.
The first thing with any interior decorator should be understanding their client's vision and style. We do this through our color and design consultations.
A color and design consultation will give you the confidence you need to make important decisions for you home.
The typical initial consultation meeting lasts an hour. We discuss many key questions getting to know the project size and needs and the direction to take. These onsite meetings are billed at a rate of $145 an hour.
Once the the client's goals are identified, the Interior Design process can begin:
-Review and/or select paint tones
-Absorb information as to the client's preferred style
-Consider space planning, lighting and live/work/entertainment needs
-Consult on furniture and accessory purchases and how they will work into future
lifestyle, residence or remodeling plans
-Formulate solutions for increased use and enjoyment of under-used spaces
-Define overall look, feel and style
-Formulate game plan to move forward with project goals and set deadlines for
selections, quotes, and job completion
Accessorizing is one of our primary services offered. After meeting with the client and understanding needs and preferences, we go into the home and begin adding elements to create a new look. We do this by bringing furniture, wall hangings, art, rugs, lamps, floral arrangements, and other accessories. In addition, we use the client's existing accessories if it is the clients preference to keep certain items. We place all of these items and/or furniture to update the room and create a more inviting space
