  • About Me

    As principal designer and founder of Kara Interior Design, I am dedicated to overall satisfaction of my clients.

    My love for design started at around age 6, during which time my father was a project manager and I used to cut out rooms from his blueprints – then glue them to cardstock in the way I wanted them to be configured. As I grew up, I constantly wanted to redecorate my bedroom, once I was finished my design - I immediately wanted to start the whole process over again.


    I attended Mount Royal Collage and graduated with honors from SAIT Polytechnic. Out of school, I worked for a firm and found myself upset with the process - I wanted to help people, not push them. I am not a conventional designer, when you meet me you will find I am practical and genuinely care about the outcome of your project.

    I think your space should be unique and reflect you personality, not just my own. It should be comfortable, and useful to your daily life. Working alongside my clients, and getting to know their needs for their specific lifestyles allows me to constantly evolve as a designer.

    My favorite aspect of design, is renovating. I LIVE for the transformations – I love the joy on my client’s faces – it’s my own personal Christmas! I specialize in revitalizing, are you thinking about giving your home that much needed facelift on a budget? I know all the tricks!

    When not completely engulfed in my love for design, I love to spend time with my wonderful husband and fur babies.

  • Project Management:

    Kara Interior Design’s services can also go beyond assisting you with your design selections. Should you choose our renovation team, we can be responsible for scheduling and coordinating your project. Many of our clients have busy lives and do not choose to deal with the aggravation of dealing with trades. We often suggest that our extensive renovation clients take a trip to get away from the project and relax; we will do all the work necessary to ensure that your job is completed by your return.

  • New Construction:

    We will help you make critical decisions relating to your new home construction. We will accompany you to suppliers and your builders design center to insure that your colors and selections flow together.

  • Interior Selections:

    Color: Color is everywhere; it surrounds us, engulfs us, and most importantly affects our mood. Color is changed by light, not only the amount of light but the type of light. Color is also influenced by other colors in its presence. It takes many years of experience to select the perfect tone or tint. Kara Interior Design will help you select a color scheme for your entire project or assist in the selection the most dramatic accent color to make your design come to life.

    Material: Material is the most overlooked aspect of design. From soft to smooth grained cabinetry to velvet or brushed linen fabrics; it is the selection of materials that enhances the senses. Does the room appear comfy and welcoming or sophisticated and sleek? Kara Interior Design will help you with your material selections from construction to decorating.

    Built-ins: Built-ins are the perfect way to give your house a well finished appearance. They not only increase the value of your home, but can be perfect solution to your storage needs. Kara Interior Design works with skilled finishing carpenters to create the best design for your space and you.

    Lighting: Lighting is the jewelry of the home. Lighting not only creates your home’s ambience, but it draws the eyes of your guest to the areas you want them to see and away from the areas that you don’t. Kara Interior Design can help you reconstruct your lighting through remodeling or simply update your space with fixtures.

    Window & Floor Coverings: Window and floor coverings may not be glamorous but they are visible everywhere in your home. They can protect your home from the elements, provide privacy, as well as have an impact on your décor. Kara Interior Design works with you to select the best look and functionality for your lifestyle.

    Furniture, Art & Decorating: This is the fun part that solidifies your design. Kara Interior Design can make a room with nothing but paint showcase your style and personality. It’s all about the details. We work with you to create a living space that fits your lifestyle. Many designers forget that not all people with children want a white sofa, or that beautiful crystal chandelier will take the better part of your Sunday to dust. We know all the details – so what are you waiting for?

  • Staging & Showhomes:

    Home staging can not only improve a property's appeal, but it can often drastically improve the speed in which your residence sits for sale in the real estate marketplace. You home must show well in pictures to attract any interested buyers for a viewing. Most buyers form an opinion about your home within the first 10 seconds of arriving. It is estimated that only 10% of home buyers can visualize the potential of a home. At Kara Interior Design we can create a space that will be able to see themselves living in. The goal of staging is to make a home appealing to the highest number of potential buyers, thereby selling your property more swiftly and in less time.

  • Space Planning:

    The most crucial and important part of design is space. There is nothing that can ruin an amazing design more than being too crowed or too empty. Kara Interior Design recommends that our clients avoid purchasing furniture or large statement pieces without a space planning booklet. Kara Interior Design can provide you with an interior floor plan booklet that outlines the size and dimensions of each space. We can layout objects in each room to visually show you how much or how little space you have left. This booklet is the best tool our clients can carry with them as they make their furniture selections, it always saves them time from returns and money in the long run.

  • Site Visits:

    We can make scheduled or unscheduled visits to your renovations to ensure the job is kept on track and that the design details are correctly implemented during construction. Site visits often can point out trade errors before they are completed and finalized. We know what quality work looks like and can often stop problems before they occur if we are present during the construction phase.
