Our Story


Kelly Riley Design is a home decor shop specializing in handcrafted farmhouse style wood signs and various country decor items. With the recent addition of a CO2 laser, we are now adding laser cut and laser engraved items to our offerings. 

Graphic Designer turned Maker


I first started creating signs after leaving my job as a graphic designer at a well-known paper company. My job was to create beautiful wedding invitations, birth announcements, social papers, business cards . . . and everything in between. This is where I developed my love of typography and lettering, and where I became a perfectionist.

After leaving the paper company I decided to go back to school to further my graphic design education and that's where I started creating home decor pieces for friends. What started out as gifts has quickly turned into a craft business which continues to expand and grow its offerings. Each piece is created by me in my home shop in Western Massachusetts. I take great pride in the items that I create and I hope you love them as much as I love making them.

I am so grateful to my husband for his support in this career change. It has been tough at times, but it has also been totally worth it. I am so grateful for all the customers that make this new business adventure possible.

If you have questions or would like to work with me on a custom order, please do not hesitate to contact me. I'd love to design a one-of-a-kind piece for you!
