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!
Here's what I do with my life--I make the world more beautiful and this is how I do it -- as an experienced, award winning Interior Designer I do this by helping others bring their design ideas to life with my guidance and visual tools. I also make professional design services more affordable and accessible to more people by offering design services by phase and online or virtually. This approach to design is a convenient and affordable option for achieving a professionally designed space without the commitment, complexities and expense of full service Interior Design. In addition, my unique, organized and highly personal process is not found at any retail store and is tailored to fit your taste, vision, style, wants, needs, lifestyle, and space. Everything can be done completely online or if local, in person - you decide - because it's your project and your home! I also do this by planting gorgeous gardens and by loving my husband, our children and our home. Beauty is important because it influences us and then we influence the world.
My mission of making the world more beautiful needs to be shared so I help others by providing expert, short term, no sales pressure design answers & direction, flat fee design plans and design concepts in flat fee packages that solve the 'giant visual design rubrics cube puzzle' which then takes the surprises, stress and guesswork out of decorating & design.
My clients are creative, 'intermediate & advanced level' design enthusiasts who value good design and have numerous ideas but don't know how or don't have time, to create a cohesive design plan out of those ideas. I've been there! You can read my story and calling here. They also choose to be involved in the design process where they can to save time, money, control their projects and claim bragging rights (because team work makes the dream work)! So, I help as much or as little as they need me.
If you've done design before, you get this and you already know that creating meaningful, beautiful & functional spaces takes time, focus and money. If you'd rather control your project to get exactly what you need and want this time and be a good steward of your money ---then you’re in the right place. I get it, I've been there - and I'm here to help!
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 type of interior design project you have, whether a home or place of business, from refreshing a tired space to creating a unique lifestyle, I work with my clients personally to help them create beautiful and meaningful homes better than the could on their own.
