Kellie Clements from "Design Star 2011" is one of the contestants in Season 6 of the interior design reality competition series on HGTV. She uses her background in art to design rooms that are warm and contemporary with touches of whimsy. She is a 33-year-old interior designer from Edmond, Oklahoma.

A self-described "fireball," this married mom of two says people sometimes underestimate her design talent. Originally from Arkansas, Kellie Clements ("Design Star 6") grew up in an artistic family. Her parents were artists and allowed Kellie to mix paints and create artwork in their studio. Kellie, who holds a degree in interior design from the University of Central Arkansas, has more than 10 years of professional experience as a designer with a residential builder. She calls her design style "warm contemporary" — that is, it includes lots of color and whimsical touches.


Creative and Colorful

For a fundraiser for the Oklahoma Symphony, Clements designs a modern, whimsical family room. "The use of bright colors is one of my signature trademarks," says Clements.

Playful Touches

"If you look closely in the background, you can see one of my favorite design elements for this project. I had turquoise bird silhouettes applied to the window treatments and also painted one on the ceiling to give the illusion they were flying through the room," says Clements. 

Artistic Grouping

Clements designs a focal wall with tone-on-tone stripes. Playful lamps flank an original tree painting Clements commissioned from her mother.

Traditional and Stylish Kitchen

For a show home kitchen, Clements designs the layout of the cabinets to be functional and wow-worthy. A classic color combo of black and white is perfect for the traditional-style kitchen.

New Take on a Classic

An alternative to an expensive farmhouse sink – Clements creates the look by building out the cabinets and countertops and then covering with white subway tiles.

Old World Kitchen

Clements designed this cook top for the Old World home. A rustic cedar beam mixes with an elegant travertine backsplash for a perfect design recipe.

A Model Living Room

For this model home, Clement was just given a floor plan and a budget. She designed the entire house including the woodwork, finishes and all of the furniture and accessories.

Mix Design Styles

The modern eclectic bedroom combines colorful bedding and a mixture of patterns with natural elements and contemporary lighting.

Elegant, Traditional Bathroom

Who wouldn't love a lush ottoman in their master bath? Clements worked with a local craftsman to design the detail for the window as well as selecting all of the finishes.

All in the Details

Have fun with the accessories in a room. Clements intentionally uses a turquoise book with the coordinating stone on top to make old and new look like they were meant to be together.

French Country Home

Clements loves doing exteriors in shades other than beige or brown. For this French Country show home, she chooses a warm yellow with accents of black.
