Karen has great taste, of course, and most important has an instinctual feeling for the taste and desires of her clients. She knew exactly what look I wanted for my kitchen, and combined that design concept with total functionality. And, she was fun and easy to work with. A great experience!             Kay Ketcham  (kitchen remodel)
