Karen Goodlow Designs specializes in full service commercial and residential interior design in the Greater Nashville and surrounding middle Tennessee area. Karen has over 20 years experience working with homeowners, builders, contractors, and business owners to create spaces that are both functional and nurturing.
In 1993 Karen moved to Nashville, TN and worked as a musician and artist. She also began applying her creativity to each living environment she acquired, and found something powerful happened in the process. Karen began to notice the profound effect designing and decorating her personal surroundings had on her. “Simple things like hanging fine art or faux painting white walls in soft tone-on-tone colors had a huge impact on how I felt in the space,” she explains.
Karen’s artistic faux finishes in her home led to people asking her to do their walls and decorate their homes. This also led to decorating for weddings and events. “I believe my big ‘Aha!’ moment came while I was on a very tall ladder, lingering dangerously at ceiling height in a hotel function room putting up decorations,” explains Karen. “I realized in that moment I was doing something difficult and challenging but it didn’t feel like work to me. I was lost in my element with this passion that drove me to accomplish my creative vision no matter what the cost.”
In 1997 Karen enrolled in the Interior Design program at Watkins College of Art and Design in Nashville. Karen Goodlow Designs was launched in early 2000 and has since operated in Nashville, Tucson, and Boston. Karen has worked with homeowners, builders, real estate agents and contractors providing her services and expertise on levels large and small. Her company has evolved into a team of professionals that offer a wide, full scope of interior design and architectural services.
