Happy clients

Our satisfied clients tell the story.

Karen is a professional provider who was such a joy to work with. She presented the most beautiful options in a timely manner. Associate Interiors’ design elements in my home are complimented each time we have company. I continue to highly praise and recommend this designer for anyone wanting their desired space to be made personal and a reflection of something they will love for a long time. We worked with Associate Interiors for 2+ years and continued to use company for consulting work.

As a General Contractor, I have enjoyed working with Karen during the last several years in a variety of projects and have found she has a great talent for “transitional” style. She takes an ordinary traditional home and can stream line and update it to make the spaces feel new and fresh. She also has the experience to work with clients or builders when planning for new construction. Karen is an experienced, creative, upbeat and practical Designer. She has the talent to take any project “to the next level”.

Urban Design and Remodel

Karen guided me through the huge project of building a custom home from the plans on up. She helped me to work within my budgets on all levels from style design, tile and stone selection, paint colors, ornamental ironwork, custom interior door design on my office, specialty pantry and the wine grotto, granite selections, and bathroom design. Karen designed and specified the custom cabinetry for the kitchen, bathrooms, office and mudroom. From breaking ground to custom window treatments, Karen was irreplaceable and extraordinarily talented in every phase of design. And also a sensible, but encouraging, sounding board for all my creative instincts. She performed so well that we used her for my husband’s business office relocation.

We used Karen Parks to help us with the interior design of our home built by Richard Dietrichson. She was great in my making suggestions for paint colors, flooring, tile, lighting, countertops etc. Not only did she work closely with us, but also with our subcontractors. She is very talented and creative. She is a visionary. She was good at giving us selections which reflected our tastes and budget. After our home was built, she was very helpful in selecting fabrics for furniture and draperies and for accessorizing. She had so many good ideas. While building a new home can be stressful, she helped make the process fun and exciting. It’s been a year since our house was finished and we couldn’t be more pleased. We get so many compliments from our family and friends!

Melody F.

We very much enjoyed working with Karen Parks on the remodeling of our kitchen and living room in our 1960s-vintage home in Richardson, Texas. She is a smart, perceptive, honest and well-informed design professional. Karen quickly learned our preferences and did an excellent job of finding design alternatives and helping us make some tough decisions. As accountants and software engineers, we don’t have natural talents for visualizing a design end-state. Karen has that ability and worked with us every step of the way as the design of our “show kitchen” came to life. She is a delight to interact with. We look forward to working with Karen again as we remodel the rest of our house.
