About


Stylish. Contemporary. Glamorous. Sophisticated. These words are often used to describe Karen’s interiors. But there are others that are just as important to her: Functional. Individual. Comfortable. Joyful.

Karen believes, first and foremost, that a house is a home. That it should reflect the personality of the owners, that it complements their lifestyle. And, most important of all, that it works. That’s why her main inspiration is always “The client’s brief”, combined with her creative flair and passion for creating spaces that are both stylish and functional.

Karen brings her unique eye and varied experience to every project. She is a keen traveller and has been influenced by her many trips throughout Europe, Asia, and South America. She is not afraid to mix classic with eclectic, vintage with contemporary. And she has an almost obsessive attention to detail and commitment to quality.

Karen has been pursuing her passion for interiors over the last twelve years, having qualified from the KLC School of Design in 2005 with a Diploma in Interior Design and is now an Associate of the British Institute of Interior Design.

Before designing, she had a successful career as a Chartered Accountant in the media industry. While accountancy and interior design may seem to have little in common, her business experience has proved invaluable. Her meticulous approach to costing and her financial and organisational skills help to ensure projects are on budget and on time.

A creative eye with a head for figures – a rare combination in the world of interior design.

Testimonials

My wife and I have just completed the re-decoration of our house. This job involved changing the existing layout of the house in addition to a total refurbishment of it.  Karen has been meticulous in her planning and project management of the entire job, as well as supplying detailed records and accounts of all costings.  Her designs are really beautiful and everyone who sees our house is blown away by how stunning it looks. We could never have achieved anything close to this on our own.  Karen has been extremely efficient throughout out. She is very pleasant to be around, and has been a pleasure to work with.  We are very happy with what she has achieved, and would thoroughly recommend her to any prospective client.

 

Jeffrey, Richmond

I cannot recommend Karen highly enough.  She is the ultimate professional with great attention to detail… a design that was both imaginative and realistic.  She is knowledgeable and confident about what will and won’t work.  Not only is she talented at what she does, she’s also a pleasure to work with.  I always felt Karen had everything under control at all times which was very reassuring.

Sue, Richmond

Karen immediately challenged our perceptions….she has the ability to visualise your space in a totally different way to the way you look at it yourself.  She will ensure your thoughts and ideas are at the heart of the project, but will then build on that to create something completely new for you

Elena, Twickenham

We first called Karen for help when we got completely stuck on the electrical design for a big house renovation. Karen’s expert advice and design has been absolutely invaluable to us. She’s since helped us greatly with other design decisions – helping us refine our thinking and presenting options we hadn’t thought of. She’s also so easy and pleasant to work with! We highly recommend Karen.

Ryan & Alison, Richmond

We commissioned Karen to help with the interior design works in our Georgian townhouse. Throughout the refurbishment she has liaised with us and our builder and we have found her to be reliable, flexible, very helpful and has come up with some fabulous and very stylish ideas.

Robert, Richmond

We used Karen’s service to redecorate two of our rooms, including buying new furniture, lighting, rugs and picture frames.  We are extremely happy with the result and feel that we would not have achieved this without her help.  I would not hesitate in using Karen again.

Pauline, Hertfordshire

Karen created two new bathrooms for my house after I had a fire. She listened to all my requirements and then designed and costed them within my budget. Thank you, Karen!

Florence, Richmond
