New Beginnings ...
Okay, so I have a confession to make. I’ve been hiding something from you guys and I’ve got to come clean. Last month, I started working on something new and I’m super excited to share it with you all. Kara Kersten Design officially has a new home. We have moved into our NEW STUDIO SPACE!!
We are located in the heart of downtown Overland Park, KS among other up and coming businesses and over the past few weeks, we have been transitioning into our office little by little. I’m happy to say that our new studio is beginning to feel more and more like home. We are still in the process of getting everything set up just right and very soon, you will be able to come visit us in our new home. Check out the photos below to get an exclusive sneak peek.
Laundry Room Spotlight
The laundry room is a space that is often overlooked but it, like the other frequently used spaces in your home can be designed to be functional and beautiful. The laundry room and the mudroom might be the hardest working spaces in the home besides the kitchen. Why not make them enjoyable to be in? I'm not implying we just make them pretty so we like to be in those spaces (although it doesn't hurt) I'm saying we plan them out specifically to make life easier, more efficient, and feel organized for your way of doing life because THAT definitely makes them enjoyable to be in!
This Laundry room was designed to have an open space in the corner below the countertop for the dog kennel to stay, a rod for hanging clothes that includes a gap for long items to hang, extra long drawers for items such as rolls of wrapping paper for gift/craft storage, and a tall storage closet to hide those things that just don't fit neatly somewhere like a plug-in vacuum & broom. The hunter green cabinetry, brass hardware, and octagon tile flooring are just the cherry on top!
Every year, my family and I host an Oktoberfest and this year was no different. It’s become a bit of a tradition for us to dress in traditional German Oktoberfest attire, eat pretzels, drink bier, and enjoy friends. The best part is that the kids always love it. Check out a few of my favorite pictures from the event below.
