Interior Design Harrogate - Katie Lee

If we hadn't hired Karen, we would've ended up with a nice room but it would've been missing something. With Karen's help, we've got a proper 'wow' room which we love! Can't wait for the next project.

V. Roberts, Harrogate


If you are fortunate enough to work with Karen you will love the experience and the finished product.

K. Griggs, Sand Hutton

Karen is an absolute joy to work with and I am absolutely thrilled with the work she has done for me. The use of colour and pattern, careful thought into proportions, design details are all very apparent to me and people who visit my home. 

J. Robinson, Leeds

Karen is a simply brilliant interior designer to work with. We weren't sure what to expect but she very quickly got under the skin of our requirements, and the end result is a quantum leap ahead of anything we could ever have done ourselves, whilst simultaneously fully reflecting our personalities.
