Karen has worked with us on a consultancy basis from the start of our home renovation project, and has always been professional, courteous and easy to deal with.
She closely considered our initial architect’s plans and came up with a number of significant design improvements, which we had not thought of. We enjoy the benefit of these amendments on a daily basis, and are so grateful for Karen’s input. She showed she really understood what we needed as a family, while always respecting our budget and personal style.
The level of detail that went into the kitchen design and bathroom cabinetry, both aesthetically and practically, was of high quality. From ensuring the floor and wall finishes were the perfect shade and texture, to finally sourcing the right pieces of furniture to complete our home was extremely valuable to us. She brought a contemporary vision to our home

Karen’s efficiency and work ethic are equal to her refined taste. She has sourced, for us, some beautiful pieces from all around the world as well as here in Australia. The trust and good relationship she has with suppliers made all our transactions easy and fuss free. It has been a lovely experience working with her on Jorge and my new home in Killara.

I have known of Karen Batchelor for over 20 years and have watched her business grow exponentially whilst trading in the UK. I could not believe my luck when she decided to transport her expertise (and home) to Australia, and I snapped her up to help me when I moved house and desperately needed her incredible sense of style and gift in pulling a cohesive look together. 4 years later I am not letting her go and still call on her for even the smallest of jobs! Her success in business and creatively, both here and in the UK, has been in no small part down to her amazing ability to understand her clients and adapt to every need and whim, whilst also offering expert and well placed advice and guidance. I would have no hesitation in recommending Karen for any job, large or small, she is an intuitive and talented designer, and also now a good friend.

Karen made the difference between our home looking good, to being perfect for us. She was able to listen to our ideas, guide us with subtle suggestions as well as introducing new concepts we hadn’t ever considered. The detailing, the quality and range of products recommended and Karen’s absolute professionalism all resulted in a home which reflects our family perfectly.
