Build Recipes

Building a home shouldn't be stressful.

This was the foundational belief that inspired our new digital product, Build Recipes. If you have a new home construction project in the works, you're likely anticipating all kinds of stress. What if it didn't have to be a difficult process? What if it could be efficient and easy?

You deserve...

  • peace of mind that a beautiful home serves as the backdrop of your life.

  • to save hours, months, and even years of delay, stress, and indecision on your new home build or remodel.

  • to live in a magazine worthy home that is perfectly balanced between beauty and function.

  • to be handed a proven and efficient process that will help you every step of the way, similar to a blueprint. 

  • a designer's touch in your home without the costly expense of hiring one.

You deserve to feel confident in the look and feel of your home without the risk of making costly mistakes


Don't get your house wrong

We understand that building and designing a home can be completely overwhelming, time consuming, and can leave you feeling anxious, intimidated, frustrated, and just plain stressed out! Making decisions when there are an endless and exhausting amount of choices while trying to figure out what goes well together is not easy.

Decision fatigue leads to...
  • Wasted time and money 

  • Buyer's remorse 

  • Worry, anxiety, and stress

  • Endless hours of shopping and research

  • ​Design paralysis

  • ​Abandoned projects 

  • Hasty decisions

  • Mediocre results 

Historically, the only solution to these problems was to hire an interior designer to help guide you through the process – a luxury expense. We knew there was a way to eliminate your stress while having all of the design decisions made for you, so we created Build Recipes. 

If building a house was like baking a cake - we’ve written the recipe for an easy to follow home design.

Build Recipes are: 
  • Curated and cohesive design selections delivered to you at a fraction of the cost of hiring a full-service interior designer.

  • An easy to follow "click-and-go" blueprint of all design details and product links needed for you to execute your room or entire home. 

  • A way for you to get the look of a professionally designed home that looks like some of our most beloved projects.

  • A way to deliver your design selections to your contractor to ensure easy implementation.

  • The best way to save you time and money on your project resulting in the creation of a magazine-worthy home that you are proud to show off.

"These Build Recipes will seriously help you streamline the parts of the design process I see so many customers toil over! And the fact that they come from a designer that works hand-in-hand with a builder is huge. Seems like the perfect product!"

Return Policy: Due to the nature of digital products we do not offer refunds. If you are unsure if Build Recipes are right for you please read our FAQ's. 

    First please complete our online project inquiry form for us to get to know you and your project. Next we will reach out with additional information about how we may work together. We then offer an in-home paid design consultation or Zoom meeting to review your project, design goals and aesthetic and talk through our initial ideation for your project. After this meeting, a design fee proposal will be sent to you for your review.
    We are based out of Oklahoma but proudly service clients and projects both locally and nationwide (and occasionally Canada).
    Client communication will take place digitally via email, by scheduled phone call or in person meeting. Thursdays and Fridays are typically reserved for uninterrupted creative time for client projects. Because we value our clients and our own rest hours, we typically stay out of our inbox on the evenings and weekends
    Absolutely! We encourage clients to incorporate some of the treasured pieces they already own. These pieces make the home feel personal and collected. With that said, we will also speak candidly with our clients about what works and what doesn't within the design of your space.
    This varies per project. If local to Oklahoma and building a home we have a prefered list of builders and architects that we can refer you to. Some clients have brought on their own contractors, and we will defer all subcontractor contacts to them. We can also connect you with wallpaper hangers, millworkers, painters, etc. as the projects requires. It is important to note that we are not General Contractors and will not assume that role at any time during your project.
    We purchase product from a variety of sources tailored to your unique project. We use local small shops, to-the-trade vendors as well as online and catalogue retailers.
    We have completed a number of successful design projects all over the country. Thanks to the wonder of technology we can still help you with your project from a distance! At times during the process it may be beneficial for us to travel to your area for selections meetings (if using local vendors) or any walk-throughs that you may want us on-site for. If our team is also helping with full-service furnishing and styling we will be on-site for installation day(s).
    At the beginning of the project you will meet with Kelsey and one of our highly talented and proficient Lead Designers. Kelsey will oversee all project management, design direction and selections. Communication will be with both Kelsey and the Lead Designer. Jessica will manage your account and will answer all billing and procurement related questions.
    At this time our business model primariliy focuses on projects that include three or more rooms to furnish or whole home design for new construction projects to best achelive our Kelsey Leigh Design Co. aesthetic for our client(s), therefore we do not offer single in-home consulatative services. We are a member of The Expert and offer 55 minute video consultations through their platform.
    We charge an hourly rate of $250. After completing our initial consultation together we will provide you with a Project Proposal tailored specifically to your project and design needs.
