Karen helped me do a whole house makeover and update - there was so much to do and I was busy at work and daunted by the task before me. Karen assisted us with so much - colours, carpet, tiles, furniture, curtains, blinds and cushions and kitchen materials and fittings too. Karen is lovely to work with - full of ideas and very patient and respectful of our situation. She went the extra mile to keep me in the loop and to help us keep the process moving. I love that we have been able to pull together some eclectic bits of inherited furniture with textured furnishings to achieve a more harmonious effect. We have some gorgeous features now in our home with our music corner and wallpaper, our bright striped couch and arboreal feature hallway wall. She worked with my daughters to makeover their rooms - helping them personalise their rooms tastefully. We love the results.

Karen has provided interior design advice to me over the last two years on various design aspects of our family home. Karen is a delight to work with. She has a passion for design and listens rather than dictates. Karen has the ability to be able to quickly recognize what you as the person or family, likes and dislikes and what works for you. I have a home that is not yet renovated and Karen's brief has been to provide furniture, fabrics, wallpaper, rugs and curtains that work well in our existing home. That our young children will not damage too much and that will also work in the spaces once renovated.
I consider my brief to Karen to be extremely challenging and varied. This has not fazed Karen who is always positive, returns my calls and has achieved the results. I am continuing to use Karen and would, and often do happily recommend her services to anyone thinking of undertaking any interior design work.
