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 and this is how I do it -- as an experienced, award winning Interior Designer I do this by teaching others how to design and decorate their own spaces so they can become their own experts as quickly as possible. In addition, I make professional design services more affordable and accessible to more people by offering design services online or virtually. I also do this by planting gorgeous gardens and by loving my husband, our children and our home. I believe 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 this is how it works -- I provide expert, short term, no sales pressure design answers & education, as well as flat fee design plans and design concepts that solve the 'giant visual design rubrics cube puzzle' which then takes the surprises, stress and guesswork out of design.
My clients are creative design enthusiasts who value good design and do it yourself projects but for some reason, can not pull it together on their own. I've been there! You can read my story and calling here. They also choose to be involved in the design process to save time & money, make good design decisions, avoid surprises, reduce overwhelm, control their projects and claim bragging rights!! So, I help them as much or as little as they need.
If you've done design before, then you already know that creating meaningful, beautiful & functional spaces takes time, focus and money. Wouldn't you rather move forward with confidence while saving time and money on your design project this time? ---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.
