KARA of KAMARRON

Interior Design is a passion for the Founder of Kamarron Design, Inc., Kara A. Karpenske. She has created a well established name within the design community. Kara’s portfolio is tastefully balanced in all areas of residential and commercial design. Extensive experience has allowed her trend setting talent to emerge in the broad spectrum of design styles.

After building a new home we realized that some of the spaces were missing a unique feeling. Kara was able to take our dream design to reality keeping them functional and within budget. We love our home now.

Kara is known amongst her clients for her sharp eye and ability to express it. Able to glean owners’ style preferences mere moments after stepping into their homes, Kara has delighted even the most apprehensive clients. She is known for her uncanny foresight to see a finished project and is well versed in balancing color, texture, and scale. Kara’s innovative ability to conceive solutions to challenging projects has earned her a reputation with her clients and also her associates. Although her design philosophy involves beginning with clean, classic lines and then adding lots of unique details, she directs her focus to the client’s lifestyle and predilection. She prides herself on designing for any budget, ensuring that luxury remains affordable to all.
