PROCESS
Each client and design project is unique. Whether it be new construction, renovation, or a room remodel, working with an experienced interior decorator brings forth creativity, quality, and unique solutions, resulting in complete design cohesion.

Karen Gallagher Interiors will work with you, the client, to determine the scope of the job, and then develop the feel, function and design concept for your space, including color and texture, layout, finish and surface selections.

PROJECT MANAGEMENT
KGI will manage every detail of the project for you, from designing window treatments, ordering products and arranging for installation, to coordinating and scheduling sub-contractors, developing a time-line, making and monitoring purchases and deliveries, and ensuring that all materials and products are at the job site in a timely manner. Any job changes and estimates will be thoroughly reviewed, and timing and budgeting will be updated frequently. KGi will see each job through to completion, working in an honest and timely manner to stay within budget and on schedule. Communication will take place frequently with all parties involved to facilitate a smooth design process, tailored to meet the client’s needs and surpass their expectations.

REAL ESTATE STAGING, MARKETING & SALES
As a realtor®, designer and home stager, Karen Gallagher is uniquely suited to help sellers prepare their property for sale, then market it to sell quickly at the highest possible price.

Research shows that professionally staged homes sell 67% faster than vacant homes and at 17% higher prices. In this market, you need Karen Gallagher's unique skill set to merchandise your home in the most effective way possible. Staging your home to enhance its best features & stand above the competition is smart marketing.

DAY OF DESIGN
Better than a day at the spa is a day with a designer!

Perfect for those clients who desire professional guidance on a decorating project, or want help with the finishing details, but don't necessarily need complete interior design service at this time.

You choose how you spend your day with the designer! Possibilities include selecting paint colors in your home, arranging furniture, hanging artwork, table setting for special occasions or holiday decorating, shopping for the perfect rug, furniture or accessories. Or Karen will simply transform your rooms with what you already own, all in a day.

Let me help you define or refine your style.

Contact Karen to book your Day of Design, or for more information on rates & scheduling.
