Nicole Kelly, head Interior Designer for Crush, graduated with a Degree in Interior Design from Bauder College in Atlanta, GA. She won the distinguished award for Outstanding Student in Interior Design, and graduated with honors. Ms. Kelly has worked in the business for over 10 years. She began her career working for the largest fabric retailer in the world. There she became an expert at matching colors, fabrics, and textures. After getting her feet wet in the business she dove all the way in and was hired to work at an Atlanta design firm as head designer for Model Homes division. Ms. Kelly was able to work on the illustrious St. Charles Resort in the Carribean island of Turks and Caicos. After working for the firm Ms. Kelly felt that she had the experience and know how to branch out on her own. In 2007 Nicole started Crush. She got the name from simply shopping for clients and realizing that the key pieces people want in their homes are the ones they remember and can’t stop thinking about after they leave the store; the ones the client has a “Crush” on.
Ms. Kelly has lived in Pistoia, Italy, London, England, Miami, Florida, Minneapolis, Minnesota, Green Bay, Wisconsin and Atlanta, Georgia. By living in all these areas she is able to give her clients a wide range of styles; modern, classic, traditional, urban, and contemporary. She has the innate ability to give her clients exactly what they want without them even knowing they want and need it. Her magnetic personality attracts people and makes her very easy to relate to. Backed by a very talented team of junior designers, painters and contractors, Ms. Kelly works in both residential and commercial design. 2015 looks to be an exciting year for Nicole with the launch of her new online store. Soon clients will be able to purchase everything from bedding to bathtubs from the signature collection of Crush.
