This was the best experience ever! It really helped get all my wants and thoughts organized in a detailed way. Karen was amazing in incorporating all my requests. My living room is perfect for relaxing and entertaining. Can't wait to move on to the next room/area of the house!

Karen's DIY By Design service was exactly what I needed when redecorating my bedroom. I know what I like I just don't know how to put it all together. Not to mention it takes so much time searching for the items and pricing. Having a designer create a plan and list all the things I need to purchase in one place was terrific!
