With current projects featured by USA Today, ABC, and Elle Decor, award winning interior designer and former host of the nationally acclaimed design show Living Large, Karen Mills, attributes her success (1200+ projects) to building long term relationships with clients, while helping them reduce stress, nurture their soul, and live better.
