Love the layers, colors and stunning kitchen. Great style and personality. I have the same philosophy, buy what you love and it has a connection. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

As a painter myself, with the urge to display sometimes, I still find it too much for the paintings...but overall I love this house design <3 I would have probably put just a little color in the kitchen as I am not big fan of grey, but overall is harmonious

Very nice. Too busy for my taste but beautiful.

Gorgeous colors and textures! Nice job!

If I was a interior designer, never ever would use black neither white. So overated, extremist. Pearl cream instead of white, lovely.

All beautiful and go well together.. except for the chairs of the dining table..... I really hated those chairs

Living look like my a first attempt at home decorating. Sorry, she can say whatever bs she wants, the result is all but harmonious to me

I can imagine this particular designer meeting her client and immediately realizing that it will be extremely challenging for her especially knowing that her client is an artist with a lot of existing beautiful eclectic collection of different type of artwork. She somehow manages to successfully tackled it and expertly came up with this amazing space.

The living room is too narrow, it looks like a corridor. I dont particularly like the many paintings.

Very pretty, but i hope that lady has a cleaninglady to dust it al:)
Jenny Hughes (5 months ago)
yes: all that crockery+ out on display - it'd get really dirty & dusty!

Oh, I love this!

That is a swing and a miss unfortunately. The kitchen is great. Wonderful idea but the living room is a disaster. WAY TOO BUSY. I love the idea of a salon with tons of paintings but the blue paint on the wall was competing with the art and the paneling behind the art was horrendous. Either do paneling or tons of paintings but ya can't have both. The art is stunning and deserves to be showcased in a better way. Those chairs found in the basement need to go back to the basement. Hell to the no to those tacky things. Overall a fail.

At last, an interior designer who is not full of herself when showcasing her work!

Finally something we're not All supposed to be ok with! My only dislike is the runner carpet on the curved staircase

Thank you for not posting a home design where the kitchen is all white...that's such a cliche trend kitchens are adopting these days.

I like her art.. and how it is being displayed.

The sliding doors are genius, they look so good and are so functional. A great solution.

What is the colour in the kitchen cabinets? It’s so beautiful 😍

Oh, my...if I was going to use a designer, I would definitely have to use this lady!! I feel like a kindred spirit, too, and the client is an amazing artist.

Stunning. I love the neutrals but this use of color is just amazing.

I'm in love with your work!

When everything from so many is a white design it becomes lacking of originality.  Thank you for the color!  It is not always easy to know how to use it properly, so I can learn, plus it is inspiring!

Love the art wall.
studiocurtis (1 year ago)
It takes a masterful talent to bring that volume of color and pattern into harmony, and she did it gracefully... calming yet vibrant at the same time - an amazing accomplishment. I also appreciate how she jubilantly honored the work of the artist. The home feels magical and full of life.
Uallllllll lindooooooooooooo ,gorgeus!

Like this. It's sort of whimsical or something

Sliding kitchen cabinetry? GENIUS! I'd love to see other homes Karen has designed, she's brilliant.
Jenny Hughes (5 months ago)
yes, sliding doors IF VERY EASY to do/roll & good easy handles = good for me because I hit my head on them & damage my hands.
Karen Zielke (1 year ago)
love this home
The true House and Home I love!!!! lots of color and ideas... now it's all subway tiles and plain white walls...
Cole W (1 year ago)
This is absolutely beautiful. Wow. So inspiring.
that fireplace!!! love it!
Mamadollskie (1 year ago)
I personally am not a fan of too much stuff on display, but this place looks like an artist's home which the owner is. I'm glad the designer respected that and worked the artwork quite well, instead of editing the pieces to suit a certain design like a show home.
Jenny Hughes (5 months ago)
yes but to me they looked awful on the coloured wood panelling = way too busy!

good thing this is not white base decor something refreshing and unique not safe but creative

This woman is a genius! This is why you hire a designer.
Jennifer Prevost (2 years ago)
This designer has such a lovely way about her. I imagine she would be a pleasure to work with, not to mention the quality of her work is beautiful.
D Ishappywithlife (2 years ago)
Yup definitely my style, actually my house looks very similar to this design. Two thumbs up 👍🏽👍🏽

"We buy things we love...When you buy things you love they're often related to one another, and you can always find a way to put them together " D'accord
TruthSeeker (2 months ago)
Cereal_Quilla - That was my biggest takeaway too!!!! That’s certainly been my experience but I’ve never had it articulated quite that way. I’m very much like these artist/designers in collecting things I love but it is an art to continue to incorporate these items into a living space without having things feel too “full” & cluttered where you end up losing the beauty of the objects. Great remodel!

Ah, the ashy blue wood paneling is amazing, and the eclectic layout of artwork. It reminds me of Provence, I just love it!

As much as I love gallery walls, I would not have hidden those beautifully paneled walls.

So sick of seeing all-white.  This is a relief from snow-infested walls.  Great color!  Thank you!

This is really good! I like how you've tried to not only display the owners stuff but actually created ways to display it better.

I like this, especially the kitchen. I'm not a fan of blue.  I thought it was gray. I like the wing chair fabric as well.  Thanks or sharing.
