"An interior designer's goal is to make the design process more enjoyable for the client. Satisfaction comes from seeing the client's individual style emerge during the design process."

She prides herself on asking questions that facilitate the design process. "While listening to my client's responses, I also hear the underlying information," she says. This verbal and nonverbal communication enables her to create a plan uniquely suited to her client's needs and desires.
She has been chosen to design model homes for Parade of Homes. Since 2003. Karlene's work has been featured in the Robb Report — Exceptional Vacation Properties.
