Karen Kalicka launched MAX Interiors in 1999 following a career designing model homes for local and national home builders. Based in Potomac, MAX Interiors is a full-service interior design firm serving the DC Metro, Delaware and Pennsylvania areas.
As Kalicka sees it, developing a trusting relationship with clients is essential to a project’s success. “My design process begins with a meet and greet,” she explains. “This gives me an opportunity to assess clients’ design directives.” The goal is to translate their vision into reality, while incorporating her keen eye for color, attention to detail and the essentials of function. Great care is taken in delivering a sophisticated design featuring personal elements, with a cost-effective approach. Kalicka takes pride in the level of customer service and the personalization she provides. “I like the challenge residential design brings to the table,” she says. “I enjoy pushing the boundaries of design to create unique interiors that make my clients happy.”
Kalicka was inspired to become an interior designer while growing up and admiring the way her parents worked with a designer in her childhood home. Today, her work as an interior designer allows her to create timeless, beautiful yet practical living spaces for her own clients.
