Kristi Nelson, Managing Director








Kristi is recognized in the world of design for creating inviting and visually compelling spaces with timeless style.  Each project reflects her sensitive integration of interior architecture, proportion, scale, and color. A trained artist, Kristi brings her passion for color, Classicism, architecture and decorative arts to her design practice. Living in Europe and travelling around the globe informs her eye and sensibilities, while her background in corporate business provides the disciplined approach to running her company and its projects. Whether working in contemporary or traditional styles, her interiors are always an artful expression of the people who live and work in them.  Clients tout her discerning eye, broad knowledge, and receptiveness, as key ingredients to her talent for creating truly, and refreshingly, "bespoke" designs.


She is a go-to design resource for TV and Radio features including HGTVs "Beautiful Homes" series, ABC's "Beautiful Homes and Great Estates," NBC/LX TV's "Open House" and "Homes Wizards" on KFWB/CBS talk radio.  Her work is also covered extensively in print and on the web including Traditional Home, Luxe, Dwell, and Angeleno Interiors, to name a few.


Kristi received her Masters degree in both Studio Art and Art History from the Paris American Academy, as well as undergraduate degrees in the same curriculum from Indiana University.
