Who We Are
MEET KELLY CANADA
I’ve been an artist since childhood. In 2000 my love for creating evolved into designing my first client’s home in Atlanta. What started as a part time passion has turned into my Design + Build + Interiors company today. We now work with clients all over Florida, from Jacksonville to the Florida Keys!
What brought us to today’s business was the recognition that the most beautiful, most efficiently managed remodeled homes had fewer hand offs between the Designers, Contactors and Sub-Contractors. So in 2020, I became a certified Residential Contractor! The integration of this service to my Interior Design business allows my clients access to amazingly unique materials and furnishings, along with providing a single point of contact to manage the remodel of their home. From kitchens and baths, up to remodeling, designing and decorating your entire home!
Today, my husband Jim and I, work with a team of expert trade craftsmen, artists, wood workers and fellow creators, to make your home something truly exceptional.
I take immense pride in working with clients to guide them on the exhilarating journey of creating a beautiful, functional home that will stand the test of time, and give great joy to family and friends!
Are you ready to start your creative journey?
I have been creating spaces since I was very young. It was never four walls and a ceiling to me. It was a canvas. An area to put my ideas and creativity into a plan. I have learned in over 20 years of business, that each space, each client, and each project, has its own unique soul. Listening and observing is at the core of any successful project, just as much as creativity and knowledge. The unique personality of each project allows me to create spaces that are distinctive to each client. Designing is my passion. It is this passion that drives me to go one step farther every time to find that perfect aspect of the project that will make it distinctive.
We serve our clients and business partners by empowering them through design. By helping our clients and business partners achieve their personal, and professional goals, it enhances our sense of community. This higher sense of community is uplifting to family, friends and all who come in contact. Our business partners consist of our vendors, suppliers, contractors, sub-contractors, artists and craftspeople.
Creativity is the core of our business. It brings our work together and serves as inspiration to our clients and business partners. Our unique creativity is the basis for our enduring business and timeless design.
We deliver on what we promise. If circumstances arise that affect the project, we immediately notify all parties and amend the project. We understand that there are expectations, budgets and timelines and we intend to over deliver for our clients, and our business partners. We always act with the utmost of integrity.
We strive for excellence and pride ourselves on quality. At Kelly Canada Design + Build + Interiors there is only one standard, and we expect this out of ourselves and business partners.
We value everyone’s input and put a premium on listening. We understand that if two heads are better than one, then multiple heads can be infinitely better. In the end, we want our clients to be over-joyed with a sense of “wow!”
We are always researching and trying new ideas and approaches to push our boundaries. Whether it’s new materials, designs or techniques, we strive to constantly bring new, fresh thinking.
HEAR FROM OUR ECSTATIC CLIENTS
FOREVER STONE WAS WONDERFULThe entire team at Forever Stone was wonderful from my first visit through installation. I shopped around all over Jax, and they were the best balance of price, selection, and service. I also loved being able to handle contracts and financials remotely. I can't recommend them enough, and I'm over the moon with my countertops!!!!!!!
EXTREMELY PROFESSIONALAfter 27 years, we finally updated our kitchen. We looked at counter tops all over Jacksonville but our contractor recommended Forever Stone on Stuart Ave. They are extremely professional in all aspects of the process and kept us updated on their progress. Their sales staff (Lisa) went with us to yet another warehouse to look at more stone. After an hour reviewing our options, deciding on the stone type etc. everything was fantastic. Arrived, fitted and finished on time. Thanks Forever Stone.
VERY HAPPY WITH THE SERVICEWe've very happy with the service and the price from Forever Stone. Lisa and Connie were super helpful, worked with us to make sure we fit our counter tops within the budgeted slab and were always there to answer questions. Our counter tops look great!
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THEMKevin, Connie and all the installers are super professional and responsive. Their product and product knowledge are second to none. They are fabulous in both commercial and residential settings. From pools to kitchens they are awesome. I highly recommend them.
THE PROCESS WAS SEAMLESSWe couldn’t be happier with our new granite countertops! Mrs. Connie was so nice and helpful. From choosing our countertops and sink to the installation, the process was seamless. 10/10!
YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!We have used Forever Stone on three occasions now and each time they have exceeded our expectations. The latest which was completed this week was new granite kitchen countertops and a fireplace hearth and surround. Lisa, Connie, Brad and the installers all are excellent to work with. Call them for your next project... you will not be disappointed! BTW, this is my first review for any company, ever.
