Karen Schaefer Louw

Interior Decor & Design is an Interior Design & Decor Firm that serves up interiors with a personal touch.  Since 2006, Karen Schaefer Louw has been providing interior decor and design for homes, corporate offices, guest houses and hotels.

Well versed in both traditional and contemporary environments, Karen focuses on what the client gravitates towards and what's special to them in their life, and works from there as inspiration.  As each client is different, each interior is different, but the common threads between each are intelligently planned spaces that accommodate everyday living, comfortable interiors, richness in colours, and a balance between the architecture surrounding the interior and the life surrounding the client.

Karen's design style is a function of her unique ability to combine furnishings and materials together in order to deliver a coherent whole, should it be modern, classic, or a mix of both, that speaks to the client and makes them feel at home, in their home...

Karen's career and working experience encompasses both the financial and property sectors, in advisory, marketing and administrative roles, as well as Image Styling. She attended and completed various Interior Decor & Design Courses & Studies, Specialized Paint Technique Courses, Financial Courses and also completed her Estate Affairs Board exam in South Africa.

Her passion, from an early age, has been a love for beautiful homes and interiors.  It was while working as an Estate Agent that Karen realized what she really wanted to do was not only sell homes, but beautify the interiors of homes.

With her creative side, interior decor experience, good knowledge of professional organizing, client liaison and image styling, Karen knows what it takes to beautify a home.

We had the absolute pleasure of meeting Karen in 2010 when we decided to make some changes to our house. Now two years later Karen is still involved in projects in our house.

Karen exuberates professionalism has a delightful personality and working with her is an absolute pleasure. Years of experience and passion for her work are evident in the creative transformation of our house into a beautiful home.

Karen also ingeniously transformed our drab cottage into a welcoming, warm, and cosy haven using all our existing furniture. Karen gives 100% of herself in all that she endeavors.

Excellence, perfection, quality and tenacity are Karen’s tools to success.

We would highly recommend her to enhance your home as she did ours.

Yours sincerely

Interior Decor & Design recently assisted me in redoing my curtain, blinds, and patio furniture and would like to highly recommend Karen and her company in dealing with any home décor project.

The level of professionalism was incredibly high and a rarity in today’s service industry.
