Karen Renée Interior Design was founded in 1992 and today  encompasses a staff of six, including designers Stephanie  Simmons and Karen Osborne. The firm is committed to providing exceptional service, fresh talent and partnership, and to exceeding clients’ expectations. “We orchestrate seamless projects to give clients  first-rate experiences and extraordinary results,” says Osborne, the firm’s president.

While Osborne brings more than 25 years’ experience in model-home merchandising to her work, Simmons has cultivated an expertise in residential waterfront design. “I am able to work across a wide variety of styles,” she notes. “Renovating the historic house  I live in has provided me with insight and experience—and working in the Severna Park/Annapolis area for the past seven years has increased my appreciation for coastal design.”

The team at Karen Renée Interior Design begins each project by listening. “We learn about the client’s lifestyle and aesthetic and how each space will be used,” Simmons observes. “Space-planning is one of the first steps, followed by millwork, lighting, furniture  selections and palette.” Each design is tailored to the client. As  Simmons says, “We enjoy seeing a project through from start to  finish. The finishing touches make all the difference.”
