Colour Design and Styling

"My wife and I are both fans of Karen and her work. Karen's worked on 3 of our homes thus far. We are very fortunate to have her as our design expert - the interiors of our house are filled with unique stylish pieces that tell a harmonius story in terms of design and colour. Karen has an amazing eye and brings the magic ability to transform the mundane into the fabulously unique.

Karen has repeatedly achieved results which in addition to being a reflection of our tastes and preferences, have been on time, within budget and also coped with the challenges presented in managing our eclectic tastes."

"Thank you for the efforts you placed into our home during the new build. Needless to say the palette is perfect on every surface throughout the house. We are equally delighted with your coordination of furniture and soft furnishings. The end result is truly gorgeous. Your ability to deliver on time and within budget is to be commended without compromise to the quality of service provided.

Renovation, Colour Design and Styling

"We would like to thank you for all your help and guidance with the interior design phase of our renovation. We are very happy with the final outcome and have received many comments as to how fantastic the house now looks from family and friends.

Colour Design and Pre-sales Styling

"I wanted to thank you so much for all your help in preparing my home for sale. In particular, I would like to say how much I appreciate your input concerning paint colours both externally and internally. The front of the house definately needed a "facelift" and your choice of colour scheme and its application achieved exactly what was needed. The bedroom colours complement each other perfectly and the "flow" of colour from inside to outside at the rear is now seamless!"

Commercial Colour Design & Fitout

"Karen, thank you for the assistance you provided in revamping "Coffee Express". Many of our customers have commented on our cafe's new look and we are absolutely thrilled with the wall design colour. Your persistence in obtaining the right prints for our coffee shop walls has certainly paid off as it works so well with the fixtures that have been chosen. We are very happy with the result and look forward to using you next year as we continue our renovations."

Styling & Colour Design

"Right from the start, I found Karen’s enthusiasm and positive approach made the job of choosing the right window coverings a very easy one indeed. Above all , Karen’s expertise with colour and her keen eye for detail gave me the confidence to hand all the decision making to her! Karen kept us informed at every stage of the project and handled every aspect of the work with consummate ease. She is a thorough professional. Thanks Karen for a wonderful job!"

Colour Design & Pre-sales Styling

"Thank you for your efforts in styling our four bedroom house in Artarmon in preparation for sale. The final layout and presentation of the furniture and decorative items was superb and enhanced the property enormously. We were able to achieve a significantly higher price for our property as a result of your work. By our estimates the increased value we were able to obtain was more than 10 times the cost of both your services and furniture rental. In addition to the final result being exceptional we were also extremely pleased to work with someone with such high standards of professionalism, every detail attended to and your management of our expectations and needs was fast, efficient and always pleasant. Should we be in the market to sell another property we will most certainly be using your services again."

Karen, your knowledge of various building materials including tiles, pavers, cabinetry, fittings etc enhances your great passion for styling and colour.

I'd love to bring your passion back to work with us as we make our way through the renovations of our home. I love watching your excitement in getting the job done right and enjoy sharing our thoughts on what to do. Again, thank you for all that you have helped us with. You certainly made the job easier"

Colour Design & Pre-sales Styling from Real Estate Agency

"I have been working with Karen from Real Living Interiors for advice when preparing our properties prior to listing on the market. As an agent I have seen the difference that a well presented property has on our buyers. Karen’s enthusiasm and solid understanding of colour, space and design linked with her energy, is well expressed. Property sales is often a highly emotional process and Karen has always shown sensitivity to the needs and budgets of our clients. It is not uncommon for our clients to rethink their decision to move after their homes have been transformed through the advice given by Karen. I have no hesitation to recommend Real Living Interiors for the right advice for your home."
