History, anthropology and travel have been important factors in my life and have shaped my sense of aesthetics. In my design, I celebrate the diversity of world cultures and I bring a broad palette of color to exude a sense of joy. While my personal style is bold, eclectic and I love innovation and unique color combinations, my main goal is to have a happy client and help them materialize their dream home. I listen to the client’s needs and try to understand their sensibilities and taste, creating a unique style for them and a space that is beautiful, practical and comfortable. My practice is flexible and unconventional and can to adapt to a range of styles, I utilize my background in history and knowledge in culture to achieve that. I think that staying on budget and creating a high quality product are important ingredients for a successful project!

Bikasa Designs is fantastic! Karen is so talented, and has vision and passion for her projects. She lead the entire interior design project of our kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, living room and more. She was always there overseeing the project and would consistently send ideas from the field through email and text. She pulled together her talented resources of builders, manufacturers, and workers and held them accountable to the highest of standards. Our house looks completely new and we couldn't imagine doing this project without her!

I had BIKASA design my home and it was a very fulfilling and successful experience from the get go! I found that they understood my needs, interpreted my aesthetic and took my budget seriously! Thanks so much I would DEFINITELY recommend this company-
I had asked two other interior decorators to make my master bedroom "sexier" and they both wanted to focus on other aspects of the house. Then I met Karen and she immediately went to work with color and fabric ideas to give the room a colorful, finished look. She is great with color and not afraid to use it. I recommend her without reservation. Melissa M. Venice
Karen designed my daughter's bedroom. Not only did she come up with an exciting and dramatic theme in the room, she also gave me courage to be bold in my choices. She is not afraid of color! I l am. I knew I wanted to make a statement but without Karen's help it would have been a watered down version of what we came up with. To this day, I walk into my daughter's room and feel so happy that I had the courage to put cork on one wall, hang a fabulous and multi-colored border on 3 other walls and bring life to the room with the most fabulous color pink paint I've ever seen! Thank you, Karen!
