Ellet Kidd Veale and Elizabeth Carr founded Kidd, Carr & Co. with the desire to offer their clients stylish, comfortable interiors that combine the grace of classical proportion and refinement with a fresh, modern approach. Clients’ lifestyle needs and personal treasures are thoughtfully considered and complemented, from materials and lighting to the smallest piece of hardware. Their rooms are meant to be absorbed and read – every detail has its own voice amidst color palettes that are both unexpected and fun. Their experiential approach embraces the stories of each client like the covers of a book.

Ellet Kidd Veale’s years of experience working with top New York-based designers and architects like David Easton, Eric Smith, and Nasser Nakib, perfected her skills in interior architecture and fine millwork design as well as classically hand-rendered plans and elevations. Her sketchbook is always at hand, conveying ideas and inspiration to her clients in an immediate and impactful way. In 2000, lured by the historic surroundings of Chester County and the beauty of the Brandywine Valley, she left the city to work with Chadds Ford-based John Milner Architects and in 2014 joined forces with Elizabeth Carr, co-founding Kidd, Carr & Co.

Elizabeth Carr began her career in interior design after receiving a certificate in Decorative Arts from Sotheby’s. She worked for several antiques and fine arts galleries in New York City, including Leigh Keno American Antiques, before devoting herself full time to interior design, working with Charlotte Moss, Claremont Furnishings, and Malcolm Kutner before opening Elizabeth Carr Interiors in 2008. In 2014 she moved to the Brandywine Valley to join Ellet, with projects in New York City, along the mid-Atlantic coast, and throughout the Brandywine region defining the firm’s sophisticated portfolio.

interiors should not be about trends;
they should be about people and how they live.

Luxury is when it seems flawless, when you reach the right balance between all elements. Understated theatricality — that is what my luxury is all about.
