A native of Aiken, SC, Paul moved to Western North Carolina as a teenager. He originally studied architecture at the University of Tennessee, then transferred to Western Carolina University and graduated cum laude with a Bachelor of Science degree in Interior Design (Kitchen and Bath Design concentration). He founded Keystone Kitchen & Bath soon thereafter.
Paul excels at visualizing enhancements to an existing space, such as a kitchen with a challenging layout. He also specializes in designing unique and interesting kitchen islands. His work led him to win the grand prize in Crystal Cabinet Works’ national design contest. He’s a member of the National Kitchen & Bath Association.
Paul’s hobbies include hiking, camping, hunting and – since he’s a Jeep enthusiast – off-roading. He also enjoys sports and is a big fan of the University of Tennessee Volunteers.

A local, born and raised in Highlands North Carolina, Leslie proudly still calls our beautiful mountains home. As a child, rearranging her bedroom furniture and doodling house plans for fun, it was obvious that she was destined for a career in design.
After completing her Associate of Arts degree from South Western Community College, Leslie went on to earn her Bachelors degree in Interior Design from Western Carolina University and joined her fellow alumni on the Keystone team in 2012.
Leslie enjoys the challenge of improving an existing space and creating dramatic before & after remodels. Rustic and country styles are prevalent in the mountains and are her favorite to work with.
Her biggest hobby is traveling with her horses, and riding new places. She also loves to camp, fish, shop, snowboard, watch Georgia Bulldog football, Duke Bluedevil basketball and hanging out with family and friends.
