    INTERIOR DESIGN: Karen was quick to get my ideas and incorporate them with exactly what I wanted and do better then I could have even imagined. She searched for different items allowing me to have more choices for my family room and was capable of doing what I thought was impossible. My family room looks as if it had just stepped out of a magazine. My neighbors could not believe the transformation. In my opinion Karen is a pleasure to work with and is very talented at what she does.
