Are you ready to create a Beautiful, Meaningful & Purposeful Home?
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? Are you tired of trying to do it all yourself or overwhelmed with all the possibilities, or don't know where to start? HGTV makes it look easy but the reality is creating a home or space that supports your dreams and goals takes focus, time, skill, discipline, money and knowledge. If you lack any of those, your costly project will be compromised. Did you notice that I didn't mention anything about talent, style and shopping? There are a lot of misconceptions about how to create successful design and a lot of holes to trip you up. I know this first hand.
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 come along beside you, teach you the truth about design and shepherd 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. Shopping without a purpose is not a good use of my time, my style is simple (you'll find me in jeans and comfortable shoes) and I don't sell product (because that is not design). But God gave me a gift that I feel called to use to help others. So, I sell my design expertise, experience, education & mad design skills to help savvy DIY designers as and when they need me (If you can't afford a design work session, please visit my blog for general design help or sign up for my monthly newsletters below).
My clients are creative geniuses 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, get stuck in the process or don't have 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 their design project so they can save money, control the outcome, 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!
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. Home is important - it influences us and we influence the world!
Let's collaborate and work together to create your vision so you can live it.
