July 27, 2010 - PRLog -- Westwood, California –Hollywood Hill’s home makeover by celebrity interior designer Kristi Nelson, of L.A.-based KMNelson Design, LLC, is spotlighted on HGTV’s wildly popular website “Design Happens”.  Nelson describes how she created the project based on the only item they both loved, a $5 African textile and a laundry list of what they didn’t like.

In this exclusive interview for HGTV Kristi Nelson talks about updating a 1930’s English cottage in the Hollywood Hills.  

“My clients arrived in Los Angeles with their toddler and a second child on the way, searching for a house with easy access to work and good public schools. They landed in Nichols Canyon, in a charming 1930s English stucco cottage with spectacular views, dated interiors, a tired exterior and just enough furniture to eat and sleep on. They had no idea where and how to begin, or even what they liked — just what they didn’t. I was hired to not only update the living room and dining room from floor to ceiling, but to also furnish and accessorize it — all before the birth of child number two.”  That first dictate led to the successful collaboration on the rest of the home inside and out.

The result: a modern blend of contemporary and traditional elements combining to create a personal portrait of their eclectic tastes and family-friendly life style.   Followers of “Design Happens” praised the interiors  for being “very chic”, “comfortable” and “gorgeous”; “cozy…not the first thing I think of when I read Hollywood Hills, which in this case is a good thing”.

Nelson got her start eleven years ago in residential interior design; rapidly building a reputation as one of LA’s leading interior designers. Eight years ago, she launched her own firm, KMNelson Design, specializing in high-end residential work. Projects range from restoration of historical homes and Westside estates to remodeling distressed properties into exciting contemporary spaces

With her extensive art background, undergraduate degrees and graduate degrees in studio art and art history, expert knowledge and vast experience in interior design; Nelson brings her rich and varied experience to all her projects.  She has earned accolades and praises from trade colleagues and clients alike:  “…It’s that special something that sets some designers apart from the crowd.  I don’t know what “it” is, but Kristi Nelson has it.” - James Barra, Editor Interiors Magazine. She has also been featured in Angeleno Interiors Magazine and was on the HOT LIST in 2009.

“My overriding goal is to define and communicate each and every client’s individual style and architectural preferences through design; and deliver that unique vision of “home”.

Kristi Nelson is the principal of KMNelson Design, LLC in Westwood, California.
