What a wonderful experience!  Every time we enter the new spaces it brings peace and calm.  Your interior design talent has enhanced the quality of our life and you are truly one of a kind!   Calvin Brown (master bedroom/bathroom addition)

GORGEOUS! My living room looks like a photo in a design magazine. Everybody raves about it. Karen made herself available to do whatever was necessary, including helping me select which pieces I wanted to keep from the sale of a house to going shopping with me to buy a few new items. She worked an amazing transformation and was a joy to work with!  Jennifer Austin

Karen did a great job helping us with the remodel of our master bathroom & bedroom. We had a specific look we were going for and she helped us achieve that by adding a floor to ceiling rock wall…  C. Manroe

Karen has done several projects with me and each time has given me very knowledgeable professional advice, while listening to me and what I want for the projects.  I could  not have asked for anything better!  Carol Thomas

You’re amazing!  Shannon Pennington (kitchen remodel & design)

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)
