Based in Blue Ridge, GA, Trimble Kelly Studio’s design team provides full service Interior Design services to both Residential and Commercial clients.   The studio became a furniture dealership 12 years ago so that we have an endless number of resources for furnishing our client’s homes and businesses.  We currently represent hundreds of manufacturers of: lighting, furniture, rugs, artwork, linens, accessories, table top items and much more.   Our network across the US and Canada allows us to ship easily to any destination.   The Dealership grew to include our e-commerce store in 2004, now know as “The New Rustic.”  The New Rustic has become a very popular on-line store for customers who are looking for  the latest in upscale rustic furnishings.

Our studio in Historic downtown Blue Ridge houses an extensive resource library with a fabric room, catalogs, material samples (paints, natural stone,  huge variety of wood species and finish options.)   Our clients love coming to the studio where we can pull materials together for their house so they can see and touch everything.  We offer interior design & detailing, lighting design, color and material selections, kitchen and bath design, custom window treatments, furnishing selection, procurement and installation.

Each client brings a unique blend of personal needs, tastes and lifestyle for our team to analyze.  It is each project’s individual elements that lead and shape our design direction for each client.  No two clients are the same therefore no two Trimble Kelly Studio’s designs are the same.  We utilize our combined years of experience, our Studio’s depth of resources with our team’s creativity to produce designs that speak directly about each individual client’s needs, lifestyle and design direction.  Our goal is that in the end, when client’s move in they feel their home or business is “all about them.”  Most of our residential clients have children, grandchildren, dogs or other pets.  These are very important “family” members that are included in the design process.
