Hello and welcome to Karen Savage Design located between Goshen and Middlebury Indiana--which is rural Elkhart County right in the middle of Amish Country. I'm so glad you stopped by!
How are you doing at designing and decorating your home? To create a pulled together look it takes focus, time, skill, discipline, money and knowledge. If you lack any of those areas, your project could be compromised. Notice I didn't mention talent.
I failed my design classes as a freshman in college and believed the Professor when he told me I didn't have what it takes to become a successful designer, but 15 years later I proved him wrong when I returned to college and graduated top of my interior design class. You can read that story here. Because here's the truth. You don't suck at design, you just need a been there, done that, don't want to do it again experienced designer to teach you and guide you through the process.
I believe we all have a little fixer upper in us but interior design isn't as easy as HGTV leads you to believe. So, I equip others with hard earned design knowledge and design concepts so they can confidently make great design decisions and control their budget and their projects. I don't sell product. I sell my design expertise, experience, education & mad design skills to help savvy DIY designers as and when they need me.
My clients are highly creative and detailed design enthusiasts with excellent taste who value good design, their time, their money and the benefits of making intentional big picture decisions to avoid costly design mistakes. They either have no idea where to start, believe they aren't good at design or simply don't know how or have the time to make sense of or create a professional, cohesive, beautiful composition with all the right details. I've been there! You can read my story and calling here. They also choose to be involved in the design process so they can control their projects, save money and claim bragging rights (because team work makes the dream work)! So, I help as much or as little as needed.
To my knowledge, I am the only award winning, educated, experienced professional interior designer doing this. Maybe that is why I am also the highest rated.
I LOVE DOING DESIGN DIFFERENTLY!
If you've done design before, you already know It takes time, energy, focus, skill and money. If you are lacking in any of those areas, your project could be compromised. Interior Design is NOT shopping. It is the work that happens behind the scenes before the shopping begins. So, don't be sold the big expensive ugly. If you'd rather control your project so you'll love to come home, you're in the right place and I'm here to help, not to sell. Let's collaborate and work together to create your vision so you can live it.
I graduated top of my interior design class in 2002. My interior design concepts have won numerous design awards and I provide years of practical design experience to my clients. So no matter where you live or what your style or what type of design project you face, whether a home or place of business, from refreshing a tired space to creating a unique lifestyle, I work with clients near and far - personally to help them create beautiful, meaningful & purpose driven spaces better than the could on their own.
