Kelly Gasper, a native of Myrtle Beach and founder of Brackish Designs, has been a passionate member of the design community for years, decorating and designing home renovations of her own and for friends and family. After moving her family from Charlotte to the Pawleys Island area in 2016, the renovations on her beach ‘fixer’ sparked a deeper interest and sharpened her design skills. She recently left her successful career in the pharmaceutical industry to pursue her passion full time, including earning a degree in Interior Design through the Interior Design Institute.
Our homes should be our sanctuaries, representing who we are, how we live and what brings us peace. Growing up in the beautiful Low Country of South Carolina, nothing feels more comforting than a home connected to its surroundings, reflecting the hues and textures mother nature has to offer. While my signature style is a calming and understated reflection of the sand and sea, I will happily design a beautiful space based on your vision and needs that perfectly reflects you. And as a mother of three, I fully understand that function and performance are critical components to great design.
We are a full service interior design firm based in Pawleys Island, South Carolina. We offer a broad range of services including:
Color Consultations: Let us develop a color scheme for your whole house or help you choose the color for a room that coordinates beautifully with the rest of your home.
Art Consultation & Installation: We work with local artists to help you find and install the perfect finishing touch for your space.
e-Design: An online service that provides you with a master design plan for a room or your entire house that you can then implement at your own pace. After a consultation where we will identify your needs, design style and budget, we will put together a mood or inspiration board that provides the aesthetic of the room or rooms and includes images of recommended furniture, lighting and decor to help you visualize the space. Once the mood board has been reviewed and finalized with you, we will provide a design package that includes the finalized mood board, a to-scale floor plan illustration, and an itemized shopping list with recommended product sources and vendor links.
Room Styling: Have you purchased most of the items for your room but need help pulling it all together? Or maybe you want to keep the existing furniture but it’s time to refresh the decor? This service focuses on updating an existing space to increase the functionality and aesthetic appeal. After an initial consultation, we will provide a mood board that includes the design concept and recommend decor and a floor plan (if requested). Once we’ve finalized the design, we will source your items and come onsite to implement the plan.
Lighting Design: An often overlooked but foundational component of a great design. We will develop and implement a lighting plan that highlights your floor plan beautifully.
New Construction & Renovation Design: Whether you are building the home of your dreams or transforming your existing home, let us design your spaces to ensure they meet your wants and needs. We will collaborate with your architect and/or builder on the initial plans and can work alongside the team to oversee the entire process, from construction to finishing touches.
