I would absolutely recommend this company to my mother and to everyone else! And I do regularly.
We worked with Karyn at CKY design and she helped us stage our condo for sale. I thought our condo had looked pretty good before she arrived but her eye for colour, detail and space transformed our condo into a space beyond our dreams! We had to wonder if we had ever lived there! She helped us turn our modern condo into a very inviting space by suggesting paint colours, placement of furniture, furniture rentals, etc... She coordinated the painting and staging, rented the furniture, gave us all kinds of great tips, and more. I'm positive the staging is what helped us sell our place within days and over asking price (the highest price in the building at the time).
Of course, once our condo was staged, we wondered why we hadn't called her BEFORE we needed to move so we could enjoy it ourselves!
This time, now that we have our new home, we called in Karyn to provide us with a design concept - a plan to help us grow into our new place and gradually update it and furnish it in a way that will best suit the space. Again, we're thrilled to have done so. The colour suggestions alone have helped enormously and her suggestions and sourcing of light fixtures (reasonably priced, too!) and recommendations for upgrades and updates have transformed the place at minimal cost so far. Plus we have a great plan from her that can help us as we purchase furniture in the future.
I'd describe her style as beautiful-chic-modern. Definitely not a cold, stark modern. Though I know that she can adapt to the needs and wants of her clients very easily.
If you're like me and you like beautiful spaces but you can't quite seem to pull it all together, then I would absolutely recommend her services. She is great at working within your budget to provide you with options for making your house a fantastic, beautiful home.
