Joann and Kelly of Kandrac & Kole Interior Designs have just completed a third room in our home. With each new project we have a greater appreciation of their creativity and professionalism! So thrilled with our new living room install!

We are the installation team that works with Joann and Kelly. What a team! They are top notch and such a pleasure to work with. When doing an installation, organization is the name of the game and these ladies have it down pat. We are lucky to be able to work with such a great team. :-)

How fortunate I am to have found Kandrac & Kole on Kudzu prior to moving to GA. The entire experience has been fun, positive and exciting beginning with my first meeting with "The Ladies," as my husband calls them. They LISTENED to our thoughts and desires; and designed the spaces perfectly for our life style. While incorporating our existing pieces, they produced a new style that is not trendy but current. Every morning when I come downstairs and see my beautiful rooms, it still feels as exciting as Christmas morning.

My wife hired Joann and Kelly to do our kitchen. They discussed options and ideas with my wife (I was traveling and missed this meeting). Joann came back with a complete notebook with colors for wall and trim, window treatments, and paint color for our kitchen cabinets. Yes our cabinets. I was skeptical with the idea of painting dark stained wood cabinets to look like maple. Joann assured me I would like the lighter color and painting was much less expensive than replacing the cabinets. I put my trust in these professional ladies. The end result was amazing and affordable. Most people are surprised to learn the cabinets are painted. The colors blend together easily and the lighting they designed makes for a warming environment. Joanne's ideas made the project more affordable. We have since used Kandrac and Kole for three other rooms. One of the common elements is that they resigned our living space using objects from the original room. This makes the space uniquely ours with a flair. The living room had a collection of model ships made by my late-father. Kelly and Joann came up with pieces to infuse the ships into the new room. I am also concerned with budgets on these projects. Kelly and Joanne have always worked within our budgets and offer many different ideas to maximum our dollars.

I found these ladies on Kudzu after being frustrated that I couldn't find a design service I felt comfortable with. We needed a complete family room re-do, and I just couldn't picture what to do with it. All the designers I checked out seemed either snooty, too formal/expensive for my house, or just somehow not right for us. Kelly and Joann are like me and my best friend would be if we went to design school. They are fun, real, and most important they listened to what our family needed and wanted. Everything they proposed came from our initial consultation where we said what we were looking for in the space. It was hard at times for me to release control and trust their recommendations, but of course they were right. The finished product is beyond our expectations. They "got" me both in personality and space planning in the room. Our family is so pleased, and I have no regrets about calling them and trusting them. They are awesome and I wouldn't hesitate to use them again.

My husband and I love working with Joann and Kelly. We built our house 5 years ago and are doing room by room. They are turning my house into a home as my budget allows. They are patient and always go out of their way around my crazy work schedule to meet with me. I also feel they are one of the few interior decorators I've worked with that don't just look at the MD after my name as dollar signs:)

I loved working with Kandrac & Kole for numerous reasons. I have used them several times & have been delighted each time. First, they give you many decorating choices versus telling you exactly what to do like other decorators. Second, my house looks exactly like us. They took all of our eclectic stuff from around the world & made it look great together. I could have never done that. Third, they are just plain 'fun" to work with! I get compliments by everyone who walks in my home & I love it.

I am so picky I have been fired by two designers! Kelly and Joann are talented, creative, fun loving girls who have worked with me for nearly 5 years. I bring scads of pictures to our meetings and I am always looking for funky stuff. The girls love the challenge and always deliver. I have a fabulous "Rustic Ritz" home on a lake in North GA thanks to this great team.

I have worked with Kandrac & Kole for years. They have turned several rooms of my home into beautiful, warm, colorful spaces. I respect their vision and I am always rewarded for it! I will always use them for my home and office and will continue to recommend them to everyone I know.

Since we first met, I knew Joann and Kelly would do a great job. They listen to what you need, learn what your tastes are, pay attention to your budget. They helped me get my house ready for my daughter's wedding in 2008. I was hooked from then on and had them back to help with my master bedroom. I love it all!! Next is my living/dining room.

I've worked with Joann and Kelly on several projects in my house from paint and color selection to accessorizing walls and rooms, and even a full kitchen makeover. They take the time to understand your budget and needs and then deliver those and so much more. They've helped turn my house into a home. My whole family loves just being home now.

I have used Kelly and Joann for several projects, some small(decorating a childs bedroom), some large (completely decorating and furnishing an entire basement). I have received the same professional, creative service on all of them. They always listen to what my vision is and stay within budget! I highly recommend this dynamic duo!

Joann and Kelly worked with me to make my house a "home". We started on the first floor (living room, family room, tv room, dining room, kitchen, bath, and hallways). I was so happy with the outcome they did all our bedrooms. They are the best--bright, creative, fun, and really listen well. It was about what I wanted for my husband and I to live in a warm, relaxing home (they even made my husband happy with a sports themed TV room). When I walked in after they did the install I burst into tears- it was so beautiful and I felt so blessed. The decor and feeling was "us"--my husband, my 2 dogs and me. I have recommended them to many, and 2 dear friends are working with them now. I promise you will be happy whether you do a small project or a big project.
