“As the homeowner, I would just like to thank Karen for giving us more than we ever dreamed of! She listened to what style of decor I was looking for and ran with it…and created a space that takes my breath away every time I look around. As you can see from the pics, it is obviously beautiful, but what is most important is the atmosphere she created thru color, fabrics, paints, the bigger details, down to the smallest of details and careful placement of furnishings and decor to create a perfect visual and emotional flow throughout the house. I have never felt so comfortable and relaxed in my own home.
Any designer can put together an aesthetically appealing place. But what Karen Buchanan has that sets her apart, is her ability to tap into who you are as a person…and as a family… and create a home that not only fits your specific needs…but also fits your personality. I can’t figure out how she managed to put together a collection of items that feel more like me than any other home I’ve been in. It’s like she knew me better than I knew myself!
Thank you Karen for all your hard, meticulous work and for my beautiful home.”
