NEIMAN MARCUS + TARGET


Just when you thought the chaos of Black Friday was over, the Neiman Marcus + Target collaboration has snuck up on us. While I wouldn't expect Missoni-level madness, there are certainly several items worth waiting in line for. The collection officially begins tomorrow at all Target stores and online at both Target and Neiman Marcus. Happy shopping!

It's officially holiday cocktail party time, friends!  Chances are you'll be hosting friends and family over in the coming weeks, so now is the time to stock up. We all know how crazy the holiday season is, so this is definitely not the time to get elaborate with your offerings. I stick to the basics: cheese straws, candied pecans, and champagne. If I have extra time to make a cocktail, milk punch is a fun, seasonal drink and is a lighter alternative to egg nog. Cheers!

KELLY AT HOME


I'm so excited to share the launch of my new e-design website, Kelly at Home. I created Kelly at Home out of the need to connect with clients that don't live in Atlanta, but would still like to work with me.

If you're having trouble pulling a room together, I've set up a simple and fun process. Each room design includes a floor plan and furniture layout, furniture and accessories selections, materials selections, a shopping list of resources, and detailed notes on implementing your design. The best part is that you can do as little or as much as you want, all at your own speed.

I also understand that sometimes people just have a question about a resource or need help arranging their room, so I've included some separate à la carte services if you're not in the market for an entire room design.

I do hope you'll check it out and if you have any questions about the process, please don't hesitate to contact me at info@kellyathomedesign.com.
