One of the designers that has inspired me since I started this home decor journey is Karan with Inside Out Designs from Ontario. She is so creative and has amazing ideas.
Her blog, called Designs By Karan, can be found here. Today I am showcasing her simple and classy designs. Come join me for this tour of My Homegirls House, you will love her!
Her bright white kitchen showcases such captivating pieces. I love how share pairs this farmhouse sink with the neutral wood cabinet.
Additionally she is willing to tackle Do It Yourself Projects, like adding this wood wall to her laundry room. I love how it turned out!
Karan does a wonderful job adding classy fall inspiration to her master bedroom here. Her vision created a space that is peaceful and uplifting. Ready to meet her? Here we go! This is her bio that can be found here.
Something else I love about her and her website is that she offers E-Design services for this who live far away. How cool is that?
She gives tons of ideas for her clients as well as her readers when they are ready to make purchases. Check out her links and ideas here.
She even sneaks a few amazing recipes in on the blog just because she can! Who wouldn’t want to make these? Her talents far surpass home decor and we are lucky to have such a mentor in our community.
Styling your home requires creativity and bold choices. Often we stay conservative in change to prevent mistakes. But you can learn what you like through your bravery in your choices. Even if mistakes happen. I challenge you to take some of the ideas that Karan shares on her blog and make bolds moves – you can do it!
