Hi! I'm Karen...
I believe interior design is a tool for saving our families and the world. Because home is about self care & 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 me or 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. Figuring it all out was expensive and time consuming but my family's future became my focus.
The interior renovation & 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.
So now I use my knowledge to impact more lives & make the world more beautiful.
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 transformation.
But constantly spending hours trying to figure it out and learn from trial and error experiments can be frustrating, expensive and feel like a non-stop loop. Creating beauty at home and inspiring good should be simple and accessible for everyone. That's why I do design differently - not a one size fits all approach that focuses on shopping for the perfect (fill in the blank), instead mindful considerations, strategy & mentoring transforms our environments, our lives & our world.
