Roller Blinds for Patio Door and Front Window plus miscellaneous repairs to existing blinds – January 2023
For years I had been pouring over the question of whether I’d get blinds for my patio door. I felt that I certainly needed them in the dark winter evenings; but I continued to procrastinate ¾ too much trouble; too many decisions…. But, when I was introduced to Karen by a friend, I almost immediately made an appointment. Karen arrived with her wealth of experience and knowledge; her van full of samples; and her quiet assurance that triggered a confidence in me to “get this done”.
And so, it came to pass. A short couple of weeks later the patio blinds were fitted as were new front window blinds; and also (to my delight!) a number of existing blinds were repaired.
Karen took all the drudgery and inconvenience out of this task. I am very pleased with the result and would highly recommend her service. Happy Days!

Room by Room Makeover – When I Could Afford It.
I love the work that Karen has done in my house. I love how she works with keeping existing furniture that I need, but somehow magically creates a brand new room with colour and blinds and very little else.
Bedroom – She transformed my bedroom by getting a customised valance made by her curtain lady… as she said, for my extra high bed. And then created a beautiful matching headboard and added gorgeous cherry blossom blinds. She then advised on a beautiful complimentary wall colour.
Sitting Room – In my sitting room – where I have an extra large sofa – again she blended in all the pieces of furniture with a stunning olive wall and beautiful blinds that picked up the sofa colour and complimenting all by transforming an existing lamp with a new larger lampshade. She also advised on a stunning wall/TV unit which of course also complimented the gorgeous colours in my blinds.
Kitchen/Dining – Luckily, when I had to refit a new kitchen after a substantial flood I asked Karen for advice on a new layout. I wanted patio doors to put in more light, and she cleverly advised on re-using the existing window in a different place. Saving me loads. She also advised on colour tones to differentiate dining area from kitchen area and a fantastic new layout. As I live on my own, I love how she planned the room for everyday use for me on my own, but which can easily be changed to accommodate large family dinners, with extending table and fabulous light stacking chairs that I can store anywhere.
I had so little to do – I love that I had very little to do. She turned up with all the samples for the blinds, furniture, and wall colour and laid them all out side by side. All I had to was choose.
Most importantly, I liked how she listened to me… I am not found of Ikea blandness or all off white shades – and appreciate something different. She got that.
In a nutshell – Karen worked with me – taking my preferences and choices – to give each room a dramatic makeover with a very individual personal style. I really appreciate her approach, her style, her eye for colour and tones, clever suggestions and results.
Barbara Conway – Monkstown – March 2023
For the first time in our life decorating decisions were taken without hassle. Karen came and listened to us both and somehow decisions were taken that reflected both of our tastes and needs. I was so relieved. It was really nice to be able to see fabrics in the room where they were going to hang. It made it really simple and straightforward. The end result has really brought the room together.
Karen didn’t just redecorate my hall, stairs and landing. She worked with me so that we both understood what it was that we needed as a family, for the way we live nowadays. She asked about family members and how we lived, she set out to understand what demands we put on our home. The life and lifestyle of everybody here was really important to her. Student life has a particular impact on wear and tear. I was delighted when she told me she wanted to keep the carpet because there was lots of wear left in it.

Apartment Refit for New Homeowner – March 2016 –
I had the good fortune to encounter Karen (through her website) when I bought an apartment and needed assistance with the interior design. Karen helped me clarify exactly what I wanted, she came up with ingenious ideas and worked to an agreed budget. She had helpful answers for all my queries and she was very generous with her time. She works with a very impressive group of colleagues. I could not be more pleased with the result and it is with pleasure that I highly recommend her service.
