"For as long as I can remember, I have been aware of the impact our immediate environment have on how we feel, act, and live our lives. How the things and colors that we surround ourselves with affect our mood and wellbeing. By living in a healthy, functional and beautiful space, our lives will be enriched. My passion is to help other people understand the power of beauty and function, and to bring this into their lives."Ellinor Ellefson
Ellinor Ellefson, award-winning designer and owner of Elle Interiors, was born and raised in Stockholm, Sweden, and spent many years living in France (Paris, Provence). She has a rich background, having lived and travelled all over the world. She studied History of Art, Architecture and Design at the University of Stockholm and became a sought after guide and writer, specializing in the art and design field. This became a strong foundation for her expert design knowledge and aesthetics, and where others have only seen pictures of famous architecture, art, and design, she has experienced it first-hand.
After meeting her American husband, she landed in Phoenix, AZ, and since 1998 she has called Arizona home. She lives in Gilbert with her two teenaged children, a dog and a cat and became a U.S. Citizen in 2008. After pursuing a degree in Interior Design from CIDA accredited Scottsdale Community College, she launched Elle Interiors in 2007. She is a member of ASID (American Society of Interior Designers) as well as NKBA (National Kitchen and Bath Association), and has won multiple awards for her designs. She is also a frequent guest speaker at interior design colleges and various events.
When not helping her clients achieve their dream spaces, Ellinor enjoys travelling, theatre, dance, fine dining, and spending time with her family.
"Interior design is not just about making a home beautiful. It involves a comprehensive understanding of the individuals who live in that space and what their needs and desires are. In an era of DIY and style on demand, I endeavor to take a client beyond the norm and toward a more holistic approach, while conscientiously maintaining a sense of style that will stand the test of time. That is my sole passion; to deliver designs that are masterfully tailored, carefully curated, and unequivocally personal."Travis Fellmeth
Travis Fellmeth, a native of rural Wisconsin, comes to Elle Interiors with a liberal arts degree in Interior Architecture & Design, a passion for chic, stylish interiors and a love for art and antiquities. After graduating in 2017 and living and working at home, he moved to Arizona to jump start his career with a well-established firm. His love for design began as a child, when he would constantly re-arrange the furniture in his home and actively study any design publication he could find. Naturally, this passion led him to a top notch education where he soon found his wings, and with experience living in the Midwest, the deep South, New York City, and now the West Coast, has a well-developed and multi-faceted understanding of aesthetics.
When he is not busy creating, networking or studying interior design, he enjoys reading, physical fitness, a quiet coffee shop or antique store, playing Beethoven sonatas on the piano, or exploring the many natural wonders that Arizona has to offer.
"There is a deep fulfillment that I find in using my design expertise to help others. My ability to be curious and creative allows me to develop personalized spaces that are beautiful, inviting, practical, and that reflect my clients’ personalities."Ciara Epperson

"My favorite interior design quote is, "There are two things that make a room timeless: a sense of history and a piece of the future." - Frank Lloyd Wright. Timeless design allows for a functional, aesthetically pleasing home for years to come. That is what I aspire to do for each and every client."Morgan Keating

Morgan loves a modern, timeless design that is aesthetically pleasing all while being functional and lasting through years to come.

"Design and architecture has such a huge impact on our lives, we are so influenced by the spaces we occupy. As a designer my goal is to always make that influence a positive one, from how we feel in a space to the influence design has on the environment. Learning is one of my top values and I am passionate about how, as a designer I can make a positive change to the world around us."Brittany Hester
Brittany Hester is a native to Arizona, where she grew up in the little town of Eloy, AZ. She has always been fascinated by design, arts, and architecture, but stayed busy in many sports, bands, and other extracurricular activities growing up. After high school obtained a Liberal Arts degree from Central Arizona College and later went on to get a Bachelors of Science in Interior Design at Northern Arizona University in 2010.
