“We bought our house 15 years ago and in the last few years decided to remodel.  We found it easy to say the word ‘remodel’, but difficult to understand all of the detail that is necessary for a successful execution. Karen Tandy Design got us through this process and helped us realize our dreams.

She worked closely with us and our contractor to make sure the project stayed on schedule and the quality met our expectations.   Karen provided us with great advice and expertise on the micro and macro level.  Five years later, not only do we love our house, but people who see it for the first time think the remodel must have occurred within the last year.  We have Karen and her team to thank for that!”

“Karen has done multiple projects for us including interiors and exteriors in several of our homes.  We can’t say enough about her attention to detail as well as her aesthetic choices.  We have truly loved and appreciated working with her and her design team.”

“My husband and I decided to downsize and found a wonderful space close to the beach.  It was poorly decorated and had some serious architectural design flaws. Karen Tandy was the perfect designer to help us accomplish our goal to create a space that reflected a sense of sophistication and yet feel relaxed and comfortable.

She really listened to understand my vision and then went to work to prepare options based on her years of experience.  Working with Karen was truly a joy, as she presented beautiful choices of furniture, sketches of wall treatments and fabrics.  She brought in amazing and professional contractors to help with the construction needs and supervised all of the details.

As both my husband and I work full time, I trusted that Karen would pay attention to make sure that we stayed on plan and also on budget.  The final result was beautiful and exactly what we wanted.  Karen and her team made that happen.”

“We have known Karen for 18 years and have used Karen Tandy Design for three very large home projects. Our first project included the complete remodel and furnishing of the main residence, guest house, and the exterior gardens. In our most recent project, she completely remodeled our Encino, CA. home which included removing walls, plumbing and electrical, new furnishings and exterior landscaping.

Having worked with her so many times, we believe that Karen is truly an expert in all facets of design – both interior and exterior.  She has always addressed all of our concerns and presented us with a plan of execution and superior design. Karen’s knowledge of construction allows her to work with general contractors and their subs with ease. She also provides a time line which removes the stress.

Karen is a pleasure to work with and her results are exceptional.  Nothing is left to chance and everything is completed to perfection.  She is the total package when it comes to exterior or interior design.  She has always provided us with a home beyond our dreams.”
