About Kelly

Kelly Whitaker Orlando Interior Design.jpg

Kelly Whitaker founded Design Solutions Residential Interiors in 2006, with a vision of creating interiors designed for “living”.

After graduating from Purdue University, Kelly spent 10 years as a Marketing and Sales Professional in corporate America. During that time, however, she often spent time designing and fabricating window treatments, and assisting others with home redesign. Ultimately, Kelly decided to take an entrepreneurial leap and turn her passion for design into a new career and founded Design Solutions.

Kelly works closely with each of her clients to create living spaces that accurately reflect their lifestyle and personality. She is committed to taking the right amount of one-on-one time throughout the entire design process to exceed your expectations. Whether your style is traditional, contemporary, or somewhere in between, Kelly’s approach is to create a look that is uniquely yours for your everyday life!

Client praise

I contacted Kelly after moving into a brand new home to help get me started on turning a blank slate into a more colorful, eclectic, and cozy home for our family. She worked with some of my own ideas and helped unify everything for a cohesive, tied together look. Kelly not only is extremely talented, dedicated to achieving her clients’ design goals, and professional in every aspect, but she is also such a sweet person and easy to work with! I sincerely could not recommend her more to anyone looking for a little help to decorating an entire home, as we have with her.

Working with Design Solutions was the perfect choice as we down-sized into a smaller but new home. Kelly helped us create a WOW factor with bright colors while re-purposing some of our furniture for a fresh look....Kelly is a great listener and has a good eye for colors. She is easy to work with, readily available for questions, and coordinated sub-contractors in a professional manner. It was my first experience working with an interior designer and it was a real pleasure.

Kudos to Kelly! She helped me remodel my 5-bedroom home. I have remodeled 5 houses in the past and Design Solutions is by far the most prompt and responsive. You won’t go wrong if you choose her.
