Kelly Lo is the Founder and Creative Director of Kelly Lo Design, a Hong Kong based boutique interior design firm that specializes in hospitality and luxury residential projects in Hong Kong and Macau.
Kelly was born in Los Angeles, grew up in Hong Kong, and went back to the United States to attend Parsons School of Design in New York City where she graduated at the top of her class. While in New York, she interned at B.Studio under Breanna Carlson and at Drake Design Associates for Interior Design Hall of Famer, King of Color, Jamie Drake.
Raised in a musical family with a father who was in the fashion industry, Kelly grew up learning how to appreciate all different forms of art. Her designs are heavily inspired by her continued travels around the world and her exuberant sense of color and textures. It is these inspirations that allow her to always deliver a subtle glamour and luxury to the inviting comfort of her spaces.
Currently, Kelly serves as the Chief Design Consultant and Interior Designer to Casa Real Hotel Casino and Grandview Hotel Casino in Macau. She also serves as an independent design adviser to luxury watch brand, Franck Muller (Asia Pacific) and designs for other private clients as well.
She is also an accomplished tap dancer and piano player and hopes that she can learn to make the perfect cream puff some day!
