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!
Here's what I do with my life--I make the world more beautiful! I do this by designing unique spaces for both residential and commercial interior design projects, by telling stories, planting gorgeous gardens and by loving my husband, our children and our home. I believe beauty is important because it enhances the lives of others which in turn changes the world.
My mission -- to make the world more beautiful needs to be shared and this is how I do it--I offer easy, accessible and affordable high level design advice, consulting, education, expertise and design boards (concepts, ideas, plans & specifications), tailored for the do it yourself designer so that you can create beauty for yourself and others. Then you can finish your project 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 by sharing my experience, ideas, knowledge and design skills with others so they can create a level of excellence in their designs they couldn't do on their own. In short....I make you the design expert for your project.
Another difference is my initial programming or design discovery phase. My process is unique, detailed, personal, in depth and can be done virtually or in person depending on your time and availability. The results solidifies your vision, combines different styles into one and provides confidence and clear direction for your own unique style.
My client's are both do it yourself and consumer savvy. They've done their own projects before and are dissatisfied 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 beautiful living, 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 important and powerful--it's what God uses to change the world!
