Clients: European dreaming and design scheming
“We love European design and want to be ahead of the trends”. Challenge accepted and one of my personal favorite design aesthetics. It’s warm wood/beam exposure, decadent tile, and timeless touches.

Bring on the Mid Century for these sweet hipsters. The clean lines, the combo of naturalness and man made materials, the graphic shapes and the vibrant colors. Check, check, check, check, check and oh an absolute blast in every way!
Clients: Country Homey seriously everybody loves you
This home has a precious place in my heart. It was my home and my family loved this home. When it went on the market, the draw was immense but the family that bought it, they were exactly who God had planned for this home.

Round two with some besties! These adorable young family crushed this basement with a mix of elements, some timeless, some stylishness, some interesting and rich!
Clients: Boutiquey Magazine Livin’
Instantly lovable and effortlessly stylish pretty much sums these guys up. Boutiquey and Magaziney is what I would call this one. It was a dream project on all levels making executing the design and furniture remotely possible (This home is in Oklahoma!)

This pair really should own a percentage of my business. They are promoters of people they believe in and just wonderful people all around. Add those two things to great taste and lovers of great design… lucky lucky us.

Clients: You are my sunshine
Sometimes you meet people at just the right time. A blessing from day one, with excitement that was contagious this design we met classic lake meets cozy. We went open concept, light filled and lake easy textures. So fitting for these light filled homeowners and their welcoming way.
Clients: Midcentury Rustic Mix
Nestled on a wooded peninsula, every view in this home is incredible. It’s warm and it’s woody so we decided to “go rich” to get homey with some great modern furnishings, fun rich patterns and warm saturated colors to bring it all together .
Clients: “Lobby of my dreamies”
Why yes it’s bougie but it’s incredibly welcoming! I’ve heard rumors that people might just want to go to their dental appointments. Strong contrasts at ever turn and a great reflection of the two amazing forces that own this business.
Clients: Emerging as a great place to work
This project was for a successful software company and is a great example of how we approach commercial projects much like residential projects where it’s all about creating the “right feel”.

“It has been more than a year since you finished our job and I still think “perfection” when I am sitting at the kitchen counter with a cup of coffee in the morning. The sun is coming in the front door, lighting up the entry, the dining room and the living room, and I am amazed all over again at how you created this beautiful design from my confused explanation of what I liked. You transformed our house into one of the most pleasant spaces I’ve ever been in.”

“I wanted to take moment to make sure I told you how incredibly talented you are. And, beyond that, how AWESOME you are in dealing with people. You have the patience of Job and diplomacy that exceeds any I have seen in the face of controversy. THANK YOU for all you have done, it is ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL!”
VickiLarge furniture project
“A friend of mine had Karisa coordinate and furnish the interior of her main living area. I saw Karisa’s talent immediately! Her design spoke to me and I knew she was the right designer to make our house a home! Karisa is personable, kind, and was super flexible and easy to work with! She has a fantastic eye for complimentary and contrasting colors to create high impact effects. Her use of various textures with fabric and integrating them into a room produces a coordinated yet unpredictable effect! We appreciated that Karisa spent her time and resources on either finding reasonably priced furnishings or presented alternatives to higher end pieces when able! Karisa captured our vision of a rustic yet stylish retreat in our main living area! We couldn’t be happier!”

“We chose to work with Karisa V Designs because of her solid reputation and the personal connection we made with her. Karisa does an excellent job with every aspect of a design project and brings a positive attitude and strong work ethic with her throughout the project. Karisa’s knowledge of the business is vast and I am quite sure that if we had attempted our own design we would have ended up spending more money and would have been less satisfied with the results. Karisa had creative solutions to work with our budget limits and worked hard to ensure the design fit our style and personalities. We enjoy our home every day and are so thankful for the way Karisa helped to make it truly ours. When I recommend Karisa V Design to my friends, I love to tell them how low stress and fun it can be to decorate as long as you have the right person helping you! I spend so much time in my home that it really makes a difference to me to be surrounded in beautiful and inspiring design!”
LoriLarge furniture project, new home purchase
“Karisa was recommended to me and after meeting her, I felt like she understood the look we wanted. Karisa’s excellent with speed of delivering ideas and finished looks for the home is outstanding. She is easy to communicate with, accessible and understanding. Karisa listens and uses her experience to offer ideas and trends to help you envision the room you want.”
LindaMain floor and basement remodel and furniture project
“I decided to work with Karisa when I saw the wonderful design work she did at my daughter’s house. I loved how everything looked as far as colors, furniture and furnishings and their arrangements, art, fixtures and accessories. She did a great job and I wanted the same experience and design expertise, as I was beginning to plan major redecorating on my main floor. Karisa was a pleasure to work with. She was always so cheerful, positive, fun and knowledgable. I think her major strengths are her compatibility in working with us so well, as I was a major participant in the project; her vision of and ideas for our entire project at the beginning and as the work evolved; her eye for color, textures, materials, fabrics and how they all worked together. I haven’t worked with any other decorators, but from my perspective I would say Karisa is unique because of her sunny disposition, her friendliness, her positive attitude, her range of ideas and her many resources of people to do what she needs done for the design. She is not pushy and listens to what you want or think you want. The expectations you would expect from working with Karisa would be the sense of ease, comfort and confidence she has as she works with you on your particular design; her willingness to work at whatever level of involvement you would desire; her fresh, interesting and exciting ideas; that your project is important to her.”

“Karisa was a referral from a friend. We started with one room and it was during that process I realized that she should be taking care of OUR ENTIRE HOME! Karisa has an amazing vision. She can what the finished product is going to be even when there are a bunch of 2 x 4′s and construction debris all over. Karisa was my third experience with designers. All 3 had talent…what made Karisa stand out was putting the talent to work. That in my opinion is a HUGE difference.”

“I can’t say enough good things. Karisa turned our house into a home. She took spaces we were unsure how to set up and turned them into our favorite rooms in the house. She’s fun to work with, it was a stress free process, and she can definitely take your style to the next level! I highly recommend her and her team!”
