The Firm

Kelly Scanlon Interior Design was established in 2004 by Kelly Scanlon Sullivan. Since then we have been working on some amazing projects, big and small, throughout the Bay Area. We are so grateful to be welcomed into the home of a client seeking our help. We collaborate closely with each, listen carefully, and together create a beautifully, inspired home that is comfortable, grounded, and made for living in. Whether it’s your 1st home, or your 4th, a Pied De Terre or a wine country retreat, we believe the process should be enjoyable, seamless, and yes, FUN! 

At KSD each project is led by Kelly, supported by multitasking office talent and an arsenal of experienced and respected local tradespeople, artisans, and contractors.

Kelly, Principal Designer

After forging a successful career in the corporate world, and a year traveling the rest of the world, I decided it was time for my “this is it” career.  Motivated by the idea of creating beauty, I went back to school to discipline my creative side.  I wasn’t sure if I’d come out designing bridges, homes, cars or cell phones…I just knew it needed to be something that people would be compelled to love and use on a daily basis. In the end, it was the architecture of my travels that finally dictated my focus on Interiors.

While working for a small boutique design firm in San Francisco, I earned a BFA in Interior Architecture and Design at The Academy of Art University in San Francisco.  I studied under thriving designers and architects and credit this valuable education with refining my vision and ability to see.

I am a wife, and the mother of 3 young children, as well as an active member of the East Bay’s Children’s Health Guild.
