Wellington born and raised and extensively travelled Karyn has gathered design inspiration from North America, Europe and Australia. Her creative influencers include the architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright, the dramatic and colourful pottery of Clarice Cliff, and interior design gurus Sir Terence Conran, Andrew Martin and Kelly Hoppen.
In 2012 Karyn founded Studio 28 and has since engaged with many home owners, helping create comfortable living environments for families. Karyn’s design philosophy is all about “creating wow interiors that are easy on the eye”.
Her strengths are her attention to detail and her ability to create ambience in a living environment. Traditional or modern, classic and timeless, comfortable and easy are all part of Karyn’s creative repertoire.
In 2017 Studio 28 became an exhibitor at the Home Ideas Centre in Petone and she now has a regular following of attendees at her informative seminars that occur throughout the year.
Karyn has a Diploma in Design and Decorating and is a Member of the Designers Institute of New Zealand (DINZ).
