Hi! I'm Karen...
I believe interior design is a tool for saving our families and the world. Because home is about building relationships one room at a time.....You see, I know first hand about how designing low ego, high impact homes not only brings you a sense of peace, calm and gratitude, but helps everyone feel comfortable, connected and cared for. And when we're cared for, we care for others.
....and here's why:
20 years ago our tiny, old farm house wasn't supporting our family and helping us connect with what matters most and I could not find reliable interior design expertise that made sense to our lifestyle, aesthetic, budget or vision without returning to college to demystify design. This was expensive and time consuming but my family's future became my focus.
The home restoration & redesign that followed not only transformed our home but also our lives. In the busyness, overload & unpredictability of the world we live in today, I believe in that kind of change. I also understand that not everyone has the time and money to return to college to learn the process of how to plan, curate & create a home where everyone feels comfortable, cared for and connected. So now I share my design expertise with others from a big picture perspective – as an expression of comfort, simplicity, connection, beauty & grace - against these things there is no law!
So, if you want to create a space that inspires life and makes an impact & a difference while stewarding your resources well, you're in the right place.
Our world needs that type of influence. Therefore, my goal is to share my 20 years of design expertise with others by working 1:1 with them so they can get it right the first time. Because creating beauty and inspiring good through mindful planning transforms our environments, our lives & our world.
