We instructed Karine to update the interior of our holiday cottage on the North Yorkshire Coast. The cottage had been painted white in every room and we were keen that the new decor gave the cottage more of a wow factor. There were some things that we wanted to keep such as certain curtains, sofas, light fittings etc. We also wanted the exterior of the property to be more appealing that it currently was. 

Karine worked with this and produced a very imaginative colour palette for the interior and exterior that tied in with what we already had whilst ensuring the scheme was harmonious throughout the cottage. She then suggested additions to the soft furnishings and lightening that enhanced the whole design further.  

She brought imagination and inspiring ideas to the project. Further, she encouraged us to consider things that we would not have been brave enough to do without her guidance. All these decisions proved to be correct. We could not be more pleased with the design. Many guests have commented on the standard of the décor and the ambiance of the cottage.


Karine had a really good grasp of the project and was very easy to work with. I would not hesitate to work with her again!


I had the chance to have Karin team up with my wife and I for the interior designing of our new home in Geneva. 
Karin has outstanding listening skills because when she came in with suggested projects, it felt as if she had crept into my mind and materialised what I thought without imposing but still with her innovative touch. 

Karin is the ideal professional to work with because her suggestions are really the result of careful integration of every detail, in terms of colour, style ...etc. and preferences to shape it all up into something unique, coherent and harmonious, and to our taste. 
She undeniably understood me completely!! 
Thank you Karin!


Karine helped us to turn our run-down garden shed into a beautiful, tranquil space for us to work and play in. She is creative and imaginative, full of ideas and able to stretch small budgets. She works extremely hard, is flexible and adaptive and delivers on what she says. I recommend her wholeheartedly for any design job.


Nous avons un studio à la montagne réamménagé et stylisé avec beaucoup de goût tout en restant très fonctionnel. Bravo à Karine pour son professionnalisme et son suivi dans ce projet qui nous donne l'impression d'avoir un tout nouveau studio.
