Environmentally Conscious Design

Karen Kaplan of New Leaf Interiors has been our interior designer and project leader for two major remodels of our home. The first remodel was to update two bathrooms and refresh all other rooms. Being thrilled with her service on that remodel, we engaged her to redesign our kitchen.

My wife and I attest to Karen's many years of experience and her professionalism in her ability to meet deadlines and stay in budget. She's a pleasure to work with since she gets to know her clients and blends their needs with her wonderful taste to come up with really exciting designs. Also, Karen is very "green" using recycled materials where possible.

We love our newly remodeled home and visitors all are impressed with it too!

New Leaf Interiors is an amazing interior design firm! They did a complete interior overhaul of our offices in Evanston, in partnership with Designs for Dignity. Karen Kaplan the owner of New Leaf interiors is very knowledgeable and experienced. She has a wonderful "eye" for bringing colors, furniture and art work together in a cohesive and fluid manner that can really transform a space!

I STRONGLY recommend New Leaf Interiors because you will be thoroughly pleased!!

Karen from New Leaf Interiors was great! We moved into a new home and Karen helped us figure out how to best use our space, as well as helping us pick paint colors and find furnishings. She has a good sense of style and is knowledgeable about available products. She took time to understand the needs of our family and made recommendations taking into account our taste, budget and lifestyle. We would definitely recommend New Leaf Interiors!

We have used New Leaf Interiors for several large projects in our home including our basement, three bathrooms and decorating consulting for the dining room, family room and two bedrooms. New Leaf Interiors is always prompt in responding, creative in suggesting uses of space and spot-on with respect to color combinations. In one instance, she brought in an architect and together they completely redesigned our space giving us a much bigger basement area than we thought possible.

I especially like that New Leaf Interiors bring an eco-friendly sensibility to many of the products that were recommended. New Leaf Interiors is very budget conscious and would consistently look for ways to keep costs down. I would strongly recommend using New Leaf Interiors for any decorating project, small or large.

Karen, of New Leaf Interiors, walked into my home and immediately targeted a problem and potential improvement. Following her suggestion, she brought a contractor with whom she's worked extensively. She really got the ball rolling. She gave us both a custom and less-expensive prefab solution to work with.

Her work has improved the look of my home by 500%. When she came back to help us hang and place art work, she was able to zero in on just the right look to maintain the integrity of her initial work, and the rooms, in general.

Karen is direct, down to earth, and extremely knowledgeable. I admire her work in many ways. Just two: She has the ability to "think outside the box." She is amenable to and capable of working within a budget.
