Meet Karen

I founded Karen Dorsey Design on the notion that everyone deserves to live in great style.  I use a blend of modern and classic elements along with livable textures and refined finishes to create a style that is truly timeless.  

Each of my designs reflect a collaboration with each client that is tailored to their personality and lifestyle. I believe design is so much more than creating an attractive space.  It is a reflection of the people who occupy the space.  

Good design doesn't just happen.  It is the result of a carefully prepared and executed plan, resulting from the collaborative efforts of both the client and the designer.  By taking the time to get to know you and understanding how you live, I am able to interpret and translate your vision into reality.

    From kitchens and pantries to bedrooms and closets you can never be too organized.  I systematically arrange, style and label each project so that it is practical and easy to maintain.


Karen has always been easy to work with and can adapt her service to many different styles.  Her communication, collaboration and design expertise made the entire process run smoothly.  We will continue to utilize and recommend her for all future design projects.

We hired Karen to help us with our kitchen remodel.  She was with us from the beginning and met with the contractor regularly to ensure that the work was executed as designed.  She came up with ideas we would have never thought of on our own.
