Color Selections

If you have looked through paint samples, it can be a bit overwhelming. What is the best color, where can you change colors. Where should I stop one color and start with a different color, with this open floor plan. The sales assistants at the paint store has not been in your home, therefore can not have a good understanding of lighting, changes of architectural space, or existing furnishings. Call the expert, and save yourself the stress, or buying unnecessary gallons of paint, that you can't use.



Create a whole new look, using what you have. We can concentrate on one room only, or redesign your entire home.


Interior Design Consultation

Investing in an hour consultation for those who are seeking advise only, may work for you.

I moved from a large home to a villa and needed help desperately in decorating. Karen rearranged my furniture for me, told me some things that I needed to fill in, and gave me many great ideas to make the most of my existing possessions. Karen and I went shopping for rugs to compliment the new hardwood floors. Selected fabric for window treatment and we were on our way to a very comfortable, beautiful home. I have my main floor just the way I want it and look forward to doing the second floor.

I moved from a three level townhome to a two story villa. In my town home, each level had a different theme. With this new space, I found I had no continuity, and felt very unsettled. I called Karen and with her eye for incorporating a person's eclectic mix of treasures, the new arrangement and placement of artwork was a complete transformation, and is now a home I am very happy to be in everyday, and am so proud to entertain my friends and family to enjoy. Karen's expertise puts her well above the decorating world. I was able to select paint colors, and window treatments also, that enhanced the look of my existing furnishings.
