Who We Are
MEET KELLY CANADA
I’ve been an artist since childhood. In 2000 my love for creating evolved into designing my first client’s home in Atlanta. What started as a part time passion has turned into my Design + Build + Interiors company today. We now work with clients all over Florida, from Jacksonville to the Florida Keys!
What brought us to today’s business was the recognition that the most beautiful, most efficiently managed remodeled homes had fewer hand offs between the Designers, Contactors and Sub-Contractors. So in 2020, I became a certified Residential Contractor! The integration of this service to my Interior Design business allows my clients access to amazingly unique materials and furnishings, along with providing a single point of contact to manage the remodel of their home. From kitchens and baths, up to remodeling, designing and decorating your entire home!
Today, my husband Jim and I, work with a team of expert trade craftsmen, artists, wood workers and fellow creators, to make your home something truly exceptional.
I take immense pride in working with clients to guide them on the exhilarating journey of creating a beautiful, functional home that will stand the test of time, and give great joy to family and friends!
Are you ready to start your creative journey?
I have been creating spaces since I was very young. It was never four walls and a ceiling to me. It was a canvas. An area to put my ideas and creativity into a plan. I have learned in over 20 years of business, that each space, each client, and each project, has its own unique soul. Listening and observing is at the core of any successful project, just as much as creativity and knowledge. The unique personality of each project allows me to create spaces that are distinctive to each client. Designing is my passion. It is this passion that drives me to go one step farther every time to find that perfect aspect of the project that will make it distinctive.
We serve our clients and business partners by empowering them through design. By helping our clients and business partners achieve their personal, and professional goals, it enhances our sense of community. This higher sense of community is uplifting to family, friends and all who come in contact. Our business partners consist of our vendors, suppliers, contractors, sub-contractors, artists and craftspeople.
Creativity is the core of our business. It brings our work together and serves as inspiration to our clients and business partners. Our unique creativity is the basis for our enduring business and timeless design.
We deliver on what we promise. If circumstances arise that affect the project, we immediately notify all parties and amend the project. We understand that there are expectations, budgets and timelines and we intend to over deliver for our clients, and our business partners. We always act with the utmost of integrity.
We strive for excellence and pride ourselves on quality. At Kelly Canada Design + Build + Interiors there is only one standard, and we expect this out of ourselves and business partners.
We value everyone’s input and put a premium on listening. We understand that if two heads are better than one, then multiple heads can be infinitely better. In the end, we want our clients to be over-joyed with a sense of “wow!”
We are always researching and trying new ideas and approaches to push our boundaries. Whether it’s new materials, designs or techniques, we strive to constantly bring new, fresh thinking.
HEAR FROM OUR ECSTATIC CLIENTS
SO CUMULATIVE AND COLLABORATIVE…
We had always considered ourselves rather adept in the design aspects of our home. With that being said, we were a bit apprehensive when first making the decision to hire a designer to aid us in our home interior. It was extremely important to us that our home not end up looking “designed” or that the house lose us in the process. There was of course an idea of how we wanted the house to end up looking. What we ended up with FAR exceeded our expectations. The process, and it is a process, was cumulative and collaborative.
Kelly was able to take our ideas, put them into an amazing plan to transform our home into the sanctuary where we now reside. She opened our minds to incredible features that we would have never thought of on our own. We found that many of our pre-conceived ideas were really quite “seen” and typical. Kelly introduced us to fabulous textiles, furniture, art and unique found objects that we would have never considered before.
Had we not hired Kelly we would have ended up right where we started, frustrated with a house that lacked interest and continuity. Kelly was great at showing us everything for approval prior to decisions. There were times when we just took a leap of faith and trusted that something chosen would end up being the right thing. It always was. It was truly a wonderful and gratifying experience working with Kelly. Our home is just that, our home.
Our input and taste is evident in all corners, walls, windows and furniture.
Kelly is a multi-talented designer. She is even great at arranging and hanging pictures!
We have since purchased a second home in New England and will be hiring Kelly to do her magic once again!
THE OUTCOME IS UNBELIEVABLE!
It takes talent to be successful in today’s interior design industry. Kelly understands that a large part of her business is based on superior service from her company, as well as, the contractors she utilizes. She has always brought us the best! Kelly not only strives to provide excellent service for her clients, but goes to all lengths to locate materials and decorative items that make your space feel designed just for you!
Kelly takes great pride in her ability to understand the design needs of her clients. She understands that each client is an individual and unique. Kelly was able to work within our budget but gave us much more than we ever imagined we could do within that budget. She was always creative with her designs and ensured we were involved thru out the design process. Kelly offered solid advice with a focus on straightforward problem solving.
The trust and confidence you experience when working with Kelly stems from her wholehearted commitment to reaching a successful completion of the project. When all is said and done, you’ll look back on your experience with Kelly and know that she gave you the whole picture with none of the details left out. You’ll see that you were able to make the kind of informed decisions you like to make, based on the information presented to you. Because of this integrity and dedication, clients return with new business and refer their friends and associates to her!
I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND KELLY CANADA DESIGN + BUILD + INTERIORS!!
My experience has been enjoyable and exciting! Kelly was able to help me define my design style by working with a few existing furniture items and art I have collected and adding key pieces to pull everything together. Colors and fabrics were chosen as well to compliment and complete each space. I enjoyed being apart of the process and always was kept abreast of the progress.
Kelly is professional and personable about her work and her enthusiasm for all projects big or small was inspiring! I would highly recommend KELLY CANADA DESIGN + BUILD + INTERIORS and I look forward to continuing my relationship with her!
REALLY ENJOYED MY EXPERIENCE WITH KELLY CANADA DESIGN + BUILD + INTERIORS!!
I was immediately impressed by Kelly's design style and skill at choosing materials. She made recommendations to help me create the kitchen of my dreams. Kelly reupholstered and updated an antique couch and it turned out beautiful! She also helped me select some custom made furniture as well as an antique dining table and chairs. Kelly recommended unique items and materials that make my kitchen and keeping room interesting. I have really enjoyed my experience and would highly recommend her services!.
EXCELLENT DESIGN SERVICES…
Kelly offers excellent design services! She has a superb sense of style, and she considers your preferences, budget, and tastes when making recommendations. I have worked with many decorators over the years, and have found Kelly to be the most professional and easy to work with design company ever.
EXTREMELY PLEASED WITH THE OUT COME!
Kelly was great to work with on all my projects! She had wonderful ideas but, also asked my opinion of her recommendations and tried to understand and appreciate my tastes. I never felt inconvenienced during all three bathroom remodels and was extremely pleased with the out come! I’m very happy with the finished product and enjoy my new bathrooms!...
SHE CREATED A TOTALLY DIFFERENT DESIGN THEME!!
Kelly, with KELLY CANADA DESIGN + BUILD + INTERIORS was introduced to me by a friend who was very happy with her services and results. Kelly has worked on two homes for me and both projects turned out much better than I expected. To note, Kelly was the first designer I have ever hired, so you could imagine my trepidation. She asked me to give her photos, etc. on the style and colors I was looking to have in my home. Kelly was tasked to give my home a “face lift” as opposed to a complete remodel...which in reality is much more difficult. She had to work with pieces I wasn’t willing to give up and we created a totally different design theme. She was amazing and pulled it all together beautifully!
I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN THRILLED WITH THE AMAZING RESULTS!
I have worked with Kelly on my first custom home from construction phase to every detail from furniture, lighting art & accessories and am currently working with her on my second custom home. The amazing characteristic about Kelly is her ability to get inside my head and anticipate my wants while still incorporating my needs. Her taste and feel for texture truly is amazing. Although she designed both homes for the same person, both homes have their own uniqueness and characteristics that create a whole new feel. That happened to be one of my initial requests, that Kelly use her knowledge of my family and I, but create something totally different than before in our 2nd home. She has done this beautifully and I cannot wait to see the completed project. Throughout my two projects with Kelly, I have learned to trust in her judgement, and I have always been thrilled with the results!
HARD WORKING AND PASSIONATE TEAM WORK!!
I recently hired KELLY CANADA DESIGN + BUILD + INTERIORS to design and complete my new condo on the ocean. When I first met Kelly, she listened intently as I explained that I wanted a comfortable, beachy feel, and then she expanded on those ideas with creative, unique concepts. Kelly managed the whole process, from designing our new kitchen & baths, new doors & hardware, flooring, furniture, custom furniture & cabinetry, window treatments & every accessory installed, ensuring they were installed properly and on time. The process was seamless and smooth. Whenever I had a question she always responded immediately. I am so happy with Kelly’s creation and love walking into my beautiful, comfortable home. I receive numerous compliments from every guest that visits me. It’s everything I could dream of and more!
ITS AN AMAZING EXPERIENCE WITH KELLY CANADA DESIGN + BUILD + INTERIORS!!
Having dealt with a designer in the past who had poor communication and lack of connection, I was unhappy with the outcome. I sought to find a designer that could visualize what I was looking for in my new home. I found Kelly searching online and after the completion of my first home she helped me to design, I found her to be a true visionary who clearly understands and incorporates the ideas I have tried to express that I would like in my home.
Kelly listened and communicated clearly with me and brought ideas that were in line with what I wanted, but not at all what I had considered. She is clearly creative and has an eye for detail. Interior design is a tough business and Kelly does a wonderful job at providing quality work and is personable to work with every step of the way. I look forward to working with her again!
A BEAUTIFUL PLACE FOR FAMILY & FRIENDS TO GATHER!We hired Kelly with Kelly Canada Design + Build + Interiors to help guide us through a remodel of our kitchen, two half baths and an over all refresh of our outdated home. It made a large, overwhelming project so much easier. I loved knowing that she was guiding all of our choices to work to a beautiful, cohesive final result.
HOME OFFICE TRANSFORMED FROM DARK & OUTDATED TO SERENE & FILLED WITH LIGHT!Kelly came highly recommended when I was looking to redesign my home office. She did not disappoint. She took the time to understand my objectives and provided unique options to achieve them. Kelly was always extremely professional, organized and easy to work with. I am looking forward to working with her on future projects.

A SERENE SPACE FILLED WITH LIGHT & TEXTURE!Kelly is very professional, organized, accommodating and communicative. She has an innate ability to create a design plan that is uniquely yours.

HAVING WORKED WITH KELLY WAS BEST EXPERIENCE!!Having worked with Kelly on my latest renovation of my condo, the first word that immediately comes to mind is efficient.

The overall project start to finish, was completely seamless, and I was amazingly relaxed the whole way through!
