SINGLE ROOM DESIGNS
Karen has been an inspiration to work with from our very first virtual meeting. From the initial concept, all the way through to the tenacity demonstrated in sourcing furnishings, fitting and scheduling of works, her dedication and attention to detail has been exemplary. A last minute paint colour change after a sleepless night is an indication of the personal care and thought Karen puts into her creations. She has an uncanny ability to help you explore and develop your own taste and style, which for me has proved to be quite an enlightening journey. Karen took my ramblings and vague brief and developed them into an exquisite design, and I now find I have a room that almost feels like it gives me a hug every time I walk in. I feel I am the very lucky custodian of a work of art that Karen has produced and am looking forward to transforming the rest of the house into a unique and personalised home.

Karen is exactly the type of no-nonsense person you need to knock some sense into you when designing a room. She knows what will work and what won’t, and isn’t afraid to tell you straight. This is what we needed for our bathroom. She came up with innovative solutions to make our bathroom a practical and beautiful space and we love it.

We got in touch with Karen last summer as we were at a dead end with our snug room. It was quite tricky for a number of reasons and after several failed ideas of our own we knew we needed expert help. It was the first time we had hired a professional. After an initial consultation, Karen came up with a number of themes and ideas, all of which were something we would never have dreamed of ourselves. I think the art of a good designer is to push you to the edges of your comfort zone which Karen did. The results were transformational as hopefully the photos illustrate. The proof of the pudding is we used Making Spaces again recently for input into another room.

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.

It was so much fun working with Karen. She transformed our cold, underused lounge into a comfortable, glamorous and stylish room that we love and enjoy everyday.
