From Kelly

I had always dreamed of opening a shop and when things fell into place for me to have a store front in downtown Franklin, I was beyond thrilled!  When I brought my husband to show him the old house I had found, he thought I had lost my mind but I knew I could make it beautiful and the owner trusted me and was excited about my vision.  My heart and soul are poured into this small business and when customers stop in and tell me how much they love shopping at KSD it makes it all worth it.  

I believe that a home should be full of gathered things. I believe that you should be surrounded with meaningful décor and cherished collections. I believe home should be a soft place to land. I believe all of life’s problems can be solved with girlfriends and cocktails. I believe that UK should win the NCAA basketball tournament every year!

I am a lucky girl to have a sweet husband that believes in me and encourages me to go big or go home.  He is also willing to help me stuff my SUV with old doors, windows and beat up furniture so I can give them new life and purpose. He's a keeper.

Stylishly Yours,
