“We could not be more thrilled with the amazing work Kelly McGuill and her company did for us! We asked them to create two bathrooms from our one very large upstairs bathroom, design a new living room for us and help us to rework the outside front of our house. From the very beginning we felt that they listened to our ideas and style and then added beautifully to it in a way we never could have done on our own. Working with Kelly and all who work with and for her was nothing short of easy and enjoyable. We knew that we would love Kelly's design as we had loved the work we saw on her website, and the end product was even more than we could have asked for. Our project was relatively small compared to some of the work by her firm, but we always felt that ours mattered and was just as important."

It has been a little over a week since you came like elves and made my family room the perfect room for our family. Since then, I've hosted 2 sets of houseguests (8 people over 5 days!), and tonight I hosted a party for 60 folks from work. We've also had a few cozy nights watching TV, we have adopted the (SUPER comfortable as promised) spool chairs as our new favorite morning coffee spot. I can't tell you how much of a hit this room is with everyone who has enjoyed it. The new flow of the room is so much better. It easily accommodated the 60 people who came this afternoon, and people could mingle, in and out of the kitchen and porch area easily. My husband (who I need to tell you was SKEPTICAL of this whole idea) is a HUGE fan of each of the pieces and loves the sofa and soft lighting of the lamps.
Working with your team was a pleasure. You were so patient with me in choosing art and agonizing over choosing the sofa without an example to see and sit on. Your attention to detail is admirable. Your eye for design is impeccable.
Kelly and her team are amazing! We recently hired Kelly to decorate and furnish our new home. We wanted a contemporary warm feeling and Kelly worked hard to make that happen. She asked all the right questions to
understand the look we wanted and pushed us to think a little outside our comfort zone on furniture, art and furnishings. Our home has turned out beautifully! Kelly and her team are very talented.
She and her team were always friendly , kind and accommodating. They gave the right amount of advice on the vision she had for our home. No detail was overlooked and communication was a priority throughout the process. Every outside contractor she suggested was professional and did a great job. The KMH team were a delight to work with!

I couldn't be more pleased with the work Kelly did for us. She flawlessly married our wants and needs with her impeccable taste. She worked with us on a house addition and was able to help us from the very beginning stages through to the finishing touches. She is professional, reliable, and easy to work with.
Project - June 2017
"Kelly and her team of designers are amazing. We recently had her work with us on a small kitchen addition and remodel. Her work ethic is amazing with concierge level support. She listens to her client and merges their ideas with her knowledge of what will look wonderful and she is always spot on. She is professional, supportive, efficient and stays on the job in a meaningful way until the client is satisfied. Kelly gives far more than ideas and I would recommend KMH to anyone who wants to transform everyday into magazine quality and still have a home that calls out for being lived in. You will be lucky to work with KMH."
"After seeing some of Kelly’s work I was convinced that she was the designer to transform our home from a dated kitchen and living area to a bright, crisp and creative space that allowed light and happiness to easily flow within the newly designed space. Wow, what a transformation we have today due to Kelly’s unwavering dedication and hard work on our project. Kelly’s expertise was instrumental during every step—pre planning, design, construction, and putting the finishing touches on the final presentation of our space. She is a true expert at what she does and delivers that expertise with unbelievable patience and grace. There is no designer that I would rather work with than Kelly. She listened and worked hard to understand what we wanted and needed. She introduced new ideas and gently pushed me to take some risks that were instrumental in making our space go from basic to spectacular—folding floor to ceiling doors to divide a room that I was reluctant to open up; oversized light fixture to accent the dining room area; and a mud room storage design to hide clutter and coats from view… just to name a few examples. Besides her input on the big design choices her attention to the small design details such as recess lighting, door knobs, trim, etc. were also critical in making it an amazing functional and beautiful space. We could not be happier with the large project she completed on our behalf—kitchen, dining room, den extension and mudroom addition. The project t lasted over a year and every step of the way she was so patient and responsive to our needs. Sometimes that involved running over to our construction site on a moment’s notice to make a decision with the contractor. Kelly is passionate with what she does and cares about the customer like no other designer. I truly believe that her main mission on our project design was our happiness with the overall project. Happy we are as she created something beautiful that I could have never done on my own. I cannot say enough about her talent and kindness. It was a joy working with her and seeing how she transformed our living space beyond what we could imagine. We loved working with Kelly and our entire family loves the space she created for us. Forever grateful for her talent! Though we miss seeing Kelly, the wonderful sun light that now flows in from the many windows and window paned doors to freely dance across our happy and beautiful space reminds me of Kelly and the happy bright light she brought with every visit!"
Very Happy and grateful client ( Spring of 2014- June 2015)
We hired Kelly to help with decorating and some furnishing of our Living, Dining, Entry, and Master Bedroom, and some remodeling/decorating of our Kitchen, and are so glad we did. Not only is she incredibly talented and has a great eye, but also listens to what you want, and delivers. She's not pushy at all - she gives you options, and lets you chose. She has great relationships with really talented contractors who do immaculate work. The end result is a space that is not only beautiful, but also feels like your own.
On top of that, Kelly truly is a pleasure to work with. She immediately put us at ease and honestly made the process fun. She is warm and kind, but also super funny and energetic.
Ultimately, Kelly and her team just want you to be happy and to love your home, and will do whatever it takes to ensure that you do. If you're looking to get some help making your house your home, and want a clean, simple, beautiful look - do yourself a huge favor and hire Kelly and her incredible team. You will be so happy that you did.
"When we first saw Kelly's portfolio we immediately felt her style matched with what we were looking for and we are very happy we chose to work with her and her team: they are talented and creative people, but also know how to professionally manage a large project like ours. We are very pleased with the results."

"I have worked on and off with kelly mcguill home for 11 years. She offers great ideas, ranging from rearranging furniture to offer a better traffic flow all the way to selection of lighting, flooring, color and furniture selection. She is a pleasure to work with and always remembers that we have a house with 2 dogs and a cat and that our selections have to strike a balance between aesthetics and durability. After adding our new addition (which kelly consulted on) we have had several guests comment on how warm the room is and how much the like the décor. Thank you kelly!"
"We hired Kelly to help us decorate our new home and we couldn't be happier with the results! She helped us with new paint colors, wallpaper, new flooring options, furniture design and selection, custom window treatments, and home accessories. Kelly is extremely talented, professional, friendly, and responsive. She helped us turn our new house into our dream home by listening to our design preferences while also taking into account our lifestyle and needs (we have two small children so she helped us chose beautiful and durable furniture options). She has done such an amazing job that I keep expanding the project so she can work her magic in more areas of my home! I highly recommend Kelly McGuill home for any decorating or renovation projects."

"Kelly is a magician. She took my large, drab, outdated bedroom and made it into a retreat. It is cozy, comfortable and timeless. She has such a great eye and is very talented. She and her team are professional yet easy and fun to work with. She has moved on to other projects in my home and I can't wait to see the transformations. I would highly recommend her. Kelly McGuill you are the BEST!"
Gail D., Client
"We had Kelly do a complete renovation of our home on the Boston Waterfront. My fiancé used Kelly to redesign some of the rooms at his previous home and the work was awesome. I was a little anxious at first since I had not used a designer before, however I was so impressed with Kelly’s work and design. She is so intuitive and gets to know her clients to the point that she captures not only the essence of the space she is working with but more importantly what you want as a client and the outcome is spectacular. We are so blessed to have her as our designer and have recommended her to everyone we know. "

"We had Kelly fully makeover our living room. First, she is a genius-magician. It came out more beautiful than we could have ever imagined. In addition, the contractors she uses are meticulous, perfectionist, clean, professional and go above and beyond. We are in the process of finishing a complete gut job in our master bathroom and closet. She took a heinously challenging space with multiple pitches and what I thought was limited options but she turned it into a veritable luxury hotel spa bathroom but with charm and character. Kelly absolutely listens to her clients whether it has to do with cost, style preferences or time expectations. She is utterly professional, personable, charming and goes way above what we ever expected. We won't make a move without her from here on out!"

"Creative, fun, smart and sensitive to client's needs. Using a designer doesn't have to be intimidating-it was actually a lot of fun with Kelly! Kelly handled our interior design and our home looks beautiful and fresh. She loves quality materials that last and does a great job working with her clients to make their home a reflection of their lifestyle and tastes. She is very talented and I highly recommend her."
Leslie L, Client
"Kelly is an incredibly talented designer. She has helped me transform my home into a place that feels calm and warm, organized and simple, while being fun and beautiful all at the same time. I have 2 young children, 2 cats, and a very big fluffy dog- Kelly has helped me pick furnishings and decor that work with my family and wear beautifully with our lifestyle so that I don't find myself worrying about every little spill or scratch. Her style is amazing. Her vision is truly a gift, she can walk into my house and suggest I move or tweak something just a bit and it always amazes me how just one small suggestion can make such an impact on my home. She is also an absolute joy to work with, one of the sweetest people you will ever meet. I can't say enough good things about her and her team. Highly recommend!"
