I always enjoyed working on interior decor projects in my home, until I went back to work and found myself without the time I once had. Kellie and Modern Whimsy was my first experience working with a design team and I am so glad I found them! Kellie got my style right away, and also understood that having just built a new home, the budget was limited to decorate it. We focused on the areas that were most important to my family and her team was great about mixing in affordable decor and furniture with higher priced pieces. Since I didn't have the time to spend shopping around the metro, they gave me ideas on where to find particular items online, which was a huge time saver. I love that Kellie and her team embraced my need for color and helped me incorporate it all over our new home.
As the Director of Marketing for Beacon Fine Homes I worked with Kellie for over 5 years. Kellie has a multitude of talents and we were fortunate to have her as our Designer. As a designer the most important assets she contributed were her creativity, resourcefulness, and reliability. She takes on each project as if it were her own home. Not only does she have the design skills and abilities, she is also organized, prompt and tenacious. She is involved from start to finish working with our on-site supervisors, contractors and Beacon staff to ensure her ideas are carried out exactly as she and Beacon Homes intended. By constantly researching the latest trends in design she able to develop new and cost effective ideas to make our homes stand out above our competitors. Kellie's favorite thing to accomplish is coming in under her budget without sacrificing the WOW factor. In addition to all the rave reviews I love to give Kellie, she is a warm, caring and dedicated person with whom I truly enjoy working.I always enjoyed working on interior decor projects in my home, until I went back to work and found myself without the time I once had.

Having lived for three decades in two tastefully decorated houses I was well on my way to building a third traditional home. After I started building I told someone whose style I have always admired " I love my traditional house with all of my family antiques but I am ready for a change. I want a house that is not so serious. I want a house that is fun." She had worked with Kellie and told me about Modern Whimsy. Modern and whimsy were two words that both frightened and intrigued me!
After meeting with Kellie the first time I began to see that traditional, antiques, modern and whimsical can be wonderfully combined. Through the process of working with Kellie my style has evolved. Kellie has guided me in new directions while incorporating the old things I love. In November I am looking forward to moving into my new house--a house designed with beautiful family antiques, wonderful colors and just the right touch of whimsy.
We were fortunate to meet Kellie through the IO Metro store in Edmond. She helped us with redecorating our living and dinning rooms. We were going from traditional to contemporary and could not have done it without her! One of the things I appreciated most about Kellie is she helped us get what we wanted, not just another version of “Kellie's design". She gave us guidance about some art work, we picked what we liked, and had fun doing it. She gave us guidance about what was worth spending money on and where we could get something just as good for less money. Kellie was always fun and we loved her excitement for our little project. I will definitely call Kellie soon, the kitchen is next!
Kellie was not the first designer we worked with when we moved to town and bought a brand new home. With my modern/contemporary tendencies, I was having difficulties melding my tastes with the Tuscan style home we purchased. The first decorator I called seemed to have heard nothing I shared about what I was wanting and merely recommended what she was most familiar with, none of which was of interest to me. How relieved I was when Kellie actually heard my pleas for help with how to blend the two styles, and to give me assurance that it could be done. She was patient and encouraging with my doubts and led us in the direction we wanted by providing a sequence of actions and items that would fit our spaces, tastes and color preferences as well as our needs. In addition, she was readily available by text, phone or email at any given time I had a question or even just an idea I wanted to discuss with her. I even texted photos of items to her while in a store to get her opinion, to which she always enthusiastically responded. Clearly my experience with Kellie was outstanding…even without the added perk of thoroughly enjoying the lovely person she is. AND…I must not forget to say, this was all while she was more than 8 months pregnant with her precious second child!!! That girl is amazing!
Working with Kellie has been such a rewarding experience! My husband and I downsized into a charming but completely different floor plan of a home and were very discouraged with how to deal with certain aspects. At the same time our taste had drastically changed and we literally started almost from "scratch" with furniture/accessories. Kellie has such a great "problem solving" mind and was able to address these so imaginatively! She also is able to combine both our needs and wants so well. I feel she is such a good resource for questions or reassurance from occasional random texts/emails when I spot a great "find" somewhere! I like to think we will have a continual ongoing professional relationship with Kellie because we have such a trust in her opinions and taste!
Delightful – the word I chose to describe working with Kellie Clements when I asked for help with a remodel. I needed assistance in picking out a color scheme for two bathrooms and my kitchen cabinets. She listened thoughtfully as I described what I planned to do. She had immediate suggestions and showed them to me with her color samples. The act I appreciated the most was she wrote her plan for my colors and picking out my tile on my remodel papers so I had immediate access when I was ready to purchase the paint and pick out my tile. I didn’t have to remember anything. She showed extreme consideration using the time well and giving me ideas on how to save money. I loved her color suggestion for my vanity in my master bath. I never would have considered this color but the color set off the room so well. Her accessory suggestions made the room all come together. I would highly recommend her to anyone needing help with a home design project.
Kellie is a fun and energetic designer to work with. She is capable of working with any budget and her range goes from doing a long-distance, over-the-internet, color scheme for the exterior of a home, to designing the entire inside of a home for a builder and everything in-between! She has an eye for color and her experience with all things in design, is obvious. Kellie also has access to some great quality contractors whose prices are very reasonable.

I have been working with Kellie and her team for almost 3 years now. When I first began working with Modern Whimsy, I told Kellie that I basically had no style, no vision, No imagination and no concept of scale. I wasn't even sure I could put my finger on what I liked. As the professional relationship has grown, Kellie has begun to figure me out, and I have begun to figure myself out as well. I have always found Kellie to be prepared for our meeting, personable, and yet very respectful of my time and budget as she gets right down to business. Coming from a type of business the bills hourly, I understand that hourly billing for services can sometimes reward inefficiency and could therefore be prone to abuse by a designer. That has never been a concern of mine with Kellie and her team. In fact, I have been amazed by how efficient she is. She pushes herself considerably harder than I ever do in order to meet deadlines and give me results that she and I are both proud of. I am grateful for the business relationship that we have developed as well as the personal friendship that has followed. If you are looking to make your home something that you are truly proud of, choose Modern Whimsy. You will not be disappointed.
My husband and I recently had the privilege to work with Kellie Clements, owner and interior designer of Modern Whimsy Interiors. Being that it was our first experience to work with an interior designer we had no idea what to expect. Now after working with her we can’t imagine doing it any other way! From her initial contact, Kellie was insightful, helpful, and friendly. During our time with her she was so professional and gave us confidence in knowing that our new home would reflect our own personal style. She took the time to thoroughly understand our tastes, stayed on task, and left us with great guidance and direction for our next steps.
Kellie gave us a plethora of helpful advice in a short time frame. We had some major decisions that needed to be made and she guided us in the absolute best direction. It is amazing how much better we feel about the future interior design of our new home. I cannot begin to explain the major design mistakes we would have made without her guidance. In fact, we recently saw the interior of a new construction home with much of the same trim color and cabinets we had in mind prior to meeting with Kellie. There wasn’t any cohesiveness and harmony in the colors, as Kellie had warned us against. We literally walked away from that home so thankful that we met with such a fantastic designer that saved us from something looking disastrous!
We can’t imagine having a better experience with any other designer. She has the perfect eye for design, so well versed and thorough. We honestly can’t say enough great things about her! Kellie is truly gifted in her profession and blessed our family with her giftedness. We would highly recommend her to everyone!
Where do I start...we absolutely LOVE Kellie and her team. I had no idea what to expect when hiring a designer. We needed help, as decorating and designing does not come easy to me. We love our house but wanted to make it more our style. I'm not sure we even knew what 'our style' was, and Kellie really helped us dig deep and figure it out. The plans she created for our home are amazing! She thinks outside the box and is fantastic with colors and textiles. I could never have dreamed up where she created. I think my favorite quality of Kellie is that she is decisive (I am not). When we have questions, she listens to us, looks at the room and then makes suggestions and decisions immediately. I LOVE that. I also realized during this redecorating process that I don't like change. I would push back on some of the design ideas because I couldn't see the big picture in the process...and EVERY TIME we realized...Kellie knows best and to stick with the plan because my changes did NOT look as good as Kellie's. I'm obsessed with her design creation and it's transformed our home. Kellie is so personable and really took time and effort with us. She even came over one day because my husband and I couldn't figure out what type of gray paint looked good on our walls. We were going crazy because it felt like a millions shades of light blue or green, ha! Thank you Kellie and team for all your hard work!
I started working with Kellie about two years ago and now, I can’t imagine doing anything in my home without her! Kellie knows and understands my children, my lifestyle and my struggles of balancing home, family and career. Through the years, I’ve hired interior designers to help with a particular space or piece of furniture. They never seemed to understand the direction I was wanting to go – or what my functional needs may have been. Kellie is the first person I’ve worked with who listens to what I’m saying and really understands me. She is also helpful when she can tell I’m headed the wrong direction, and that what I’m trying to do just won’t look very good. She is always cost-conscious and always looking for functionality – not just “eye-catching.” In today’s busy world and economic climate, she’s been a lifesaver for my family and me! Hopefully, she will be a part of our lives for many years to come.
This was my first time working with a designer and I wasn't sure what to expect or how the process worked. From start to finish this was a super simple process that caused me zero stress. When I started working with MW I was very pregnant and also had a teenager, so I had two very different spaces with very different ideas that I wanted to transform. I was a bit hesitant in hiring a designer because I wasn't sure how you tell someone else what you want a space to look like and they make that happen. All those worries are behind me now as this process was easy and the end result is exactly what I had envisioned and my rooms look amazing. The finished rooms are better than what I ever envisioned they would be and I truly feel like they reflect our style and personality. The MW team was always respectful of our time and our home. All of the contractors they recommended were great to work with and trustworthy. I learned so much through the process of creating these spaces with Kellie and Melissa and can't wait to get started on my next project.
