Kellie Clements' Design Portfolio
Kellie, an interior designer from Edmond, Okla., joins the cast of HGTV Design Star season six. Take a peek at the designs that earned her a spot on the show.
Creative and Colorful
For a fundraiser for the Oklahoma Symphony, Clements designs a modern, whimsical family room. "The use of bright colors is one of my signature trademarks," says Clements.
"If you look closely in the background, you can see one of my favorite design elements for this project. I had turquoise bird silhouettes applied to the window treatments and also painted one on the ceiling to give the illusion they were flying through the room," says Clements.
Clements designs a focal wall with tone-on-tone stripes. Playful lamps flank an original tree painting Clements commissioned from her mother.
Traditional and Stylish Kitchen
For a show home kitchen, Clements designs the layout of the cabinets to be functional and wow-worthy. A classic color combo of black and white is perfect for the traditional-style kitchen.
New Take on a Classic
An alternative to an expensive farmhouse sink – Clements creates the look by building out the cabinets and countertops and then covering with white subway tiles.
Elegant, Traditional Bathroom
Who wouldn't love a lush ottoman in their master bath? Clements worked with a local craftsman to design the detail for the window as well as selecting all of the finishes.
Clements transforms her grandmother's chair, which was previously stained dark brown and had a damaged cane seat. Since she couldn't find fabric she liked, she creates her own by buying one fabric in seven different colors and sewing it together in a varied stripe. "This is now my favorite piece of furniture," says Clements.
Classic Black-and-White Bathroom
Clements and her family bought a fixer-upper house, so when making over the bathroom for her sons, she wanted to create a modern, fun bathroom that will grow with them. She chooses an inexpensive black-and-white tile for the flooring, but lays it in an unexpected way to create interest. Clements also made the shower curtain to add a whimsical element to the space.
For her boys' bathroom, Clements replaces the old vanity with a double one so each kid will have his own sink.
Old World Home
Clements says, "I love modern but I can do any style." For this home exterior, she creates an Old World style with the warmth of the stone and red windows together.
Old World Kitchen
Clements designed this cook top for the Old World home. A rustic cedar beam mixes with an elegant travertine backsplash for a perfect design recipe.
Sophisticated Dining Room
Clements designed this dining room as part of a show home for a local builder. She had the luxury of doing the entire room from the finishes to the furniture and accessories, including her favorite element: the checkerboard stained wood floors.
French Country Home
Clements loves doing exteriors in shades other than beige or brown. For this French Country show home, she chooses a warm yellow with accents of black.
Inside the French Country-style home, Clements shows how modern furniture and accessories can be used in a more traditional-style home.
Contemporary yet Traditional
For this master bedroom, Clements mixes modern nightstands and lighting with traditional accessories to give the room an authentic look
All in the Details
Have fun with the accessories in a room. Clements intentionally uses a turquoise book with the coordinating stone on top to make old and new look like they were meant to be together.
Have Fun With Accessories
For a fundraiser event, Clements decorates a hallway with rattan and moss balls on the walls and ceiling. A fun, playful touch as guests walked down the hall.
A Model Living Room
For this model home, Clement was just given a floor plan and a budget. She designed the entire house including the woodwork, finishes and all of the furniture and accessories.
Mix Design Styles
The modern eclectic bedroom combines colorful bedding and a mixture of patterns with natural elements and contemporary lighting.
Warm, Inviting Bedroom
Clements designed this master bedroom for clients who wanted a warm atmosphere with lots of color. The homeowner had the headboard in a blonde stain, so Clements gave it a rich, darker stain and brought in color with the bedding and accessories.
Simple Bathroom Vanity
When remodeling this bathroom for a client, Clements altered the cabinets by taking out a row of drawers to allow for a makeup vanity and seating.
Clements was commissioned to create this original piece of abstract artwork.
Playful Paint Technique
In this media room, Clements paints a scroll pattern on the walls in high gloss paint. The design is interesting to look at when the room is well lit, yet not distracting when lights are dimmed for a movie.
Colorful Media Room
Clements designs a media room with a fun, playful color combo of olive and lime stripes and trimmed in charcoal.
