Karen Gallagher Interiors composes spaces that have been described as 'sophisticated eclectic'. Items from different time periods, styles and genres are carefully considered and arranged. Karen seamlessly and tasetfully blends a wide array of styles, textures, shape, scale and finishes to build comfortable spaces that are simply fascinating and delightful. She believes each space should be injected with the homeowner's personality, and reflect in some way, on some level, who they are and where they have been. Her interiors are never overdecorated or contrived. Rather, they look as though they were built over time, which is Karen Gallagher Interior's hallmark of design success.
