BIO

Kelli Richards was born and raised in Toronto, Canada. She grew up with a passion for Art and Design. From a young age she loved creating spaces, and would save her money to buy paint and furniture for her bedroom and her parents’ house.

"I feel like by changing our surroundings, we can completely change our mood. We have enough problems in this world, the spaces where we live and work should make us feel special and at ease, not bored, annoyed or stressed out.”

At the age of 15, Kelli was discovered by Elite modeling agency in a local mall. She was immediately travelling the world modeling for countless magazines and runway shows as well as appearing in numerous TV commercials worldwide.

She currently lives in Montreal Canada and continues to model but has rediscovered her original passion for interior design and has recently graduated from LaSalle Interdec College, Interior Design program.

During her time travelling the world, Kelli was able to visit many exquisite hotels and restaurants and has been inspired by various cultures.

She lived in Tokyo Japan for 3 years where she draws some of her inspiration from.

Kelli continued to travel through Europe and other parts of Asia and was also inspired by the Hollywood Regency style. While it is the farthest thing from Japanese minimalism, Kelli loves the bold colors and glamour in this style.

"I am in the fashion business, and surrounded by beauty and glamour all the time. I would like to bring a part of this to my designs because I want everyone to feel beautiful and elegant in their space."

While she is just beginning her career in the design world, Kelli’s designs have already received some recognition. Her school restaurant design project was chosen to present at the SIDIM (Montreal’s International Design Show) for the 2013 Sico New Talent Excellent Award. She is also an expert columninst at Montreal HOME Magazine

Her signature style is mixing high with low, contemporary with classic or vintage, creating unique and personalized spaces for her clients.

Kelli is currently available for commercial and residential projects.
