Interior Design Gallery of Kelly Gale Amen

My interior designs have been called capricious and whimsical non sequiturs; a kind of decorative joie de vivre that critics have called both “shocking and deliciously enchanting.” I sometimes chuckle at the humorous designations intended as off-handed compliments for my work. I’m noted for extremes and for being very eclectic, those are definite trademarks of my work. So is my handling of unusual juxtaposition, a design ploy I call the “art of entwinement.”
