Design came naturally for Karen Mills who wore clothes as a child she designed with the help of her grandmother.  Today with a global reputation as a forerunner in interior design, Karen is renowned for transforming a client’s living experience into one that engages the senses, nurtures the soul, and provides a healing environment for work or play.

Karen pens an award-winning blog read by subscribers in over 130 countries and has been a media spokesperson for national brands including Sherwin Williams, Kohler, GE, and Ferguson.  Mills is also an internationally published writer and the recipient of numerous awards including the prestigious national 2021 Enterprising Women of the Year for her fast-growth business, mentoring women, and standing out as a leader in her community.

Karen attributes her interior design success to extensive experience – more than 1300 interior design projects, an amazing team, highly proficient resources, and an innate ability to create inviting spaces.
