Our Design TeamYour imagination is our inspiration.

  • Who she is:
    Courtney was one of the first designers hired when the Bell family opened their studio. Specializing in custom cabinetry projects, she now helps to educate clients on developing their ideas and understanding their needs and wants. Signature elements of her designs are inspired by fashion and style trends that she then repurposes in unique ways.
    What she likes:
    “My favorite style is transitional classic — I love that there are so many opportunities to try something new.”, she says. Her favorite part of any project is finding ways to layer old and new, then add that twist of warmth to create something that feels welcoming. Asked where she gets her inspiration, she laughs, “I take pictures of so much random stuff! I really encourage the girls here, and myself, to unplug and notice what’s all around us; buildings, natural elements, fabrics, just take it all in.”

    Where you’ll find her:
    In addition to coaching homeowners through the creative process, Courtney is a mentor for the other designers. With her love for all things kitchen-related, she’s also become one of the pro-series bloggers for About.com.
    Who she is:
    The Bell cabinetry legacy is in Katie’s blood. She’s been an active part of her family’s company since the age of 16 and, as a child, had her own teeny toolbox to help her grandfather with fix-it jobs.
    What she likes:
    Katie says, “I like doing kitchens best — there’s more space to play with and there’s the opportunity to influence, or be inspired by, the rest of home. Life seems to flow from the kitchen throughout the other rooms.”

    Where you’ll find her:
    “Oh I’m all over the place here!”, she laughs. Having grown up in the business, Katie works in sales as well as design, and also does much of the company’s CAD and tech specs work.
    Who she is:
    “Functionality is my inspiration”, Peggy laughs. While she’s now devising ways to strengthen and amplify the Bell brand, she built her own portfolio by reimagining the areas where clients need to maximize usability. She has a passion for transforming problem spaces — pantries, home offices, laundry rooms and even garages — with beautiful designs that simply work.
    What she likes:
    Speaking of making spaces work, Peggy says, “My favorite projects have been in senior living centers. It’s so rewarding help someone find familiarity when moving into a new phase of life. I’ve had folks call me saying how grateful they are that I figured out how to keep their grandmother’s quilts and wedding china safe. These are pieces more than 150 years old that would have otherwise been given away.”

    Where you’ll find her:
    In addition to the business side of things, Peggy is also the Closet Division Manager. With more than 20 years of industry experience, she now oversees the design, manufacturing and installation of storage solutions for those “other rooms”.
    Who she is:
    Self-described as very analytical, organized, and technical, Melissa primarily works with volume installations, managing an average of 75 projects in various stages at once.
    What she likes:
    When asked to describe her signature design element she replied, “Oh I love range hoods. Mine at home has a reclaimed wood band at the bottom that we traced back to a fence in North Carolina.” Her favorite projects tend to be modern, with sleek lines and simple design work that turns the cabinetry from the focal point into an elegant canvas for integrating life and style.

    Where you’ll find her:
    Much of Melissa’s work is done for spec houses in upscale developments. She partners with builders to bring their visions to life while ensuring her designs work to draw in homebuyers.
    Who she is:
    At age eight, Holly received a doll house and after 10 minutes of arranging furniture asked, “Are there any jobs that pay me to make houses pretty?” In college, she challenged herself to learn the technical side of design as well as the aesthetic perspective which ultimately led her to the Bell family.
    What she likes:
    “I like mixing styles and feelings to create something different. Those experiments are some of my favorite projects.” Her design philosophy centers on function, then form. “First and foremost, it just has to work. Then I like to push myself to create an heirloom piece — something that can be appreciated for generations.”

    Where you’ll find her:
    Holly partners with interior designers and homeowners to help blend trends and tradition into one unique and functional design.
  • Who she is:
    Although she’s always loved drawing and playing with bold color, Keri tried two “safe” majors before taking a chance on her dream. Now she constantly experiments with her style, which she describes as “classic with a little bit of funky.”
    What she likes:
    Working from a philosophy of “balanced and beautiful”, Keri loves to eliminate wasted space wherever possible, and enjoys the clean lines and opportunities inherent to transitional style. As for her inspiration, it’s the smallest details that spark a roomful of creative solutions.

    Where you’ll find her:
    Keri collaborates with home owners and interior designers from inspiration to installation.
    Who she is:
    Growing up, Kim rearranged and redesigned her bedroom constantly, spending hours flipping through catalogs for the comforters and curtains that could bring her latest vision to life. Now, she often finds her designs to be a bridge between the homeowner’s imagination and interior designer’s inspiration.
    What she likes:
    Kim says, “The hand-applied molding details are something of a lost art and I love infusing them into my design.” Although she hasn’t checked it off yet, gutting an old house and redoing it from the ground up is at the top of her bucket list.

    Where you’ll find her:
    When she’s not scoring antiques to refurbish from her parent’s collection, Kim works with homeowners on custom kitchen and bath builds.
    Who she is:
    Maggie is a 2015 graduate from the University of Georgia’s Furnishings & Interiors program. After attending a lecture by Courtney and running into her twice more, the two saw an opportunity for Maggie to shine with Bell. In addition to getting first-hand experience with custom projects, she’s also learning the ins and outs of volume installation and design.
    What she likes:
    Maggie’s DIY motto is “Just sand off what you don’t like, change the finish and hardware and you have a piece that’s totally you.” A devotee of calming colors with metallic accents, she describes her style as costal modern and loves to create big statements with simplicity and petite detailing.

    Where you’ll find her:
    Because Bell prides itself on giving designers the tools and opportunities they need to dream and define their style, Maggie is training on all sorts of builds. “So much of this business is just learning by doing so I’m determined to help out wherever I can.”, she adds.
    Who he is:
    When asked why he’s worked at Bell for nearly 15 years, Chris replied “I’m just a natural craftsman. Even as a kid I loved working with my hands and seeing how stuff works.”
    What he likes:
    Elements from his favorite style of cabinetry — traditional, with clean lines and simple, functional detailing — is echoed by his other artistic outlet, painting natural landscapes. He favors cherry and oak woods, as they hold finishes beautifully and transform easily into many different designs.

    Where you’ll find him:
    Chris partners with the studio on both design and construction. He’ll also be onsite to manage the installation of the final product.
    Who he is:
    Walter started in the closet division then took over the installation, production and management of volume orders. When asked why he chose Bell he replied, “I came to find a home — not a job. We’re family here.”
    What he likes:
    He approaches each project with a blend of strategy and artistry that ensures every job is well-done. As the father of three kids who lives by the 5 Fs (faith, family, friends, freedom, and fellowship), his advice is simple: work hard, because nothing is given to you.

    Where you’ll find him:
    Walter partners with builders to coordinate quantity buys for entire developments. He’s also onsite from design to delivery, orchestrating the final production and installation.
