Kelsey Grose is quickly becoming a design authority to watch in Southwest Saskatchewan. While best known for bright, contemporary spaces with a farmhouse twist, her ever-evolving eclectic aesthetic translates into ingenuity and open-mindedness when working with a wide range of clientele. Her design blog was named 2017’s ‘Best New Design Blog‘ by the Design Bloggers Conference in Los Angeles, California.

A firm believer in a client-centered approach, Kelsey is intricately involved in the development of each and every design project and encourages her clients to fully engage in the firm’s Six Step Design Process. With a natural eye for design, helping her clients discover their individual style while bringing fresh, innovative ideas to the table is what she does best.

As a young adult, I moved to Calgary, AB to pursue a business degree during which time my father was diagnosed with stage four kidney cancer. After completing my degree I moved back to Swift Current to marry my highschool sweetheart and to be closer to family. Four years after the shocking diagnosis, my father passed away in the middle of harvest season – one of his favorite times of year. Now more than ever, I see how my father was a huge encouragement to me, always taking time to offer advice and pushing me to do my best as he watched me dreaming of owning my own interior design business someday.

Like many farmers, and farmer’s daughters, I am grateful for where I grew up and how I was raised. The farming lifestyle that my parents chose to lead played a large part in how I view life and who I am today – I guess you could say, like many others in our area, I’m still a farmer at heart and will always be proud to be a farmer’s daughter."

When My Design Studio’s cramped quarters could no longer handle their booming business, they made plans to create a new state of the art décor center that would grow with them for many years to come. My Design Studio works with Ontario builders to provide a space where future homeowners can select finishes for their new homes through a series of appointments with their talented design team. The new space has plenty of room to both showcase products in vignettes from their trusted suppliers and to house all of the available finish options in one convenient place.

Upon entering the showroom you are greeted with the first show stopping kitchen display, a luxe lounge and a grand central fireplace. The vibe is modern industrial glamour and there are plenty of eye catching details here to inspire clients. One of the most dramatic features of this open concept layout is the herringbone floor. Our Brushed Oak Lynnwood offers beautiful color variation and texture to the space, mixing perfectly with the different tones throughout. Surrounding the central herringbone feature is our Brushed North American Hard Maple Lemur which makes for an interesting detail and adds beautiful warmth to the room.

The back of the décor center has a variety of finishes and fixtures that homeowners can choose from including many from Kentwood Floors. There are large meeting tables so that each designer has plenty of space to lay out material boards for homeowners to visualize. My Design Studio is the perfect place to make your dream home into a reality. We look forward to a continued partnership with them for many years to come!
