Making Interior Design Easy, Accessible & Affordable for Everyone
Hello and welcome to Karen Savage Design located in Middlebury Indiana--which is rural Elkhart County right in the middle of Amish Country. I'm so glad you stopped by! My purpose is to help you create beautiful spaces that reflect your values and tells your story visually. A place that increases in value and enhances your life and the lives of others.
Successful design is combined art, science and communication. A process done in phases that requires knowledge, skill, time, and experience. It is an intentional process that when properly done, produces beautiful results which in turn serves you. And while anyone can learn design principles and how to apply them, in reality few really have the time, money, experience and skill to do so successfully. And this is how I help; I offer easy, accessible and affordable high level, hourly design advice, design consulting, coaching and design concepts (design drawings), plans and ideas tailored for your unique situation. Then you can find your own resources and finish yourself or engage me for unique, custom pieces. This is different from other designers because it is totally client focused, without sales pressure to purchase products or 'upgrade' and because I don't have to control the entire project or you, the client. My goal is simple - to have happy clients and the way I do that is to help them create successful designs by making educated design decisions. In short....I make you the design expert for your project.
Another difference is my process. My process is unique, detailed, personal, in depth and can be done virtually or in person depending on your time and availability. This solidifies your vision, combines different styles into one and provides confidence and clear direction.
My client's are both do it yourself and consumer savvy. They've done their own projects before and made mistakes, or they're overwhelmed with all the design details & clutter, they need help combining different styles or discovering what they really love. Whatever the reason, they all share this--they understand and value the importance of good design and good counsel because they know they'll save time, hassles and money and be so much happier with the end result.
If that describes you---then you’re in the right place. I get it, I've been there - and I'm here to help.
I will work one-on-one with you in your home or place of business, within your budget no matter the size of your project or where you are in this process--from exploration to adding the finishing touches. It is always a pleasure and a privilege to help others create beauty in both form and function because beauty is powerful!
One last note: My mother suffers from Alzheimer's Disease and I recently came across her diary and discovered she had never achieved her dream of becoming an author. This has inspired me to write this blog(although I am not a writer) for myself, my beloved Mr Man and our children about the life we lived at home together and as a reminder to them (and sometimes to myself) of who we are in Christ, what it means to live by faith and as an encouragement for them to make daily choices that will get them one step closer to becoming all they were meant to be. May it inspire you as well to begin and finish the race well and enjoy the journey. Many blessings! (Numbers 6: 24-26),
