A native of Toronto, Canada, Karin Nelson received her Bachelor of Commerce and Associates Degrees from the University of Toronto in 1991. Karin has been working in the field of interior design since 1996, and relocated to New Orleans in 1998. She was drawn to the Crescent City due to its French heritage, unique architecture and multiple design influences.

With over 18 years of experience, Karin has been able to hone her signature, classic approach, and understands the relationship between furniture, fabrics and accessories as a necessary background to great interior design. She has two beautiful fur babies, Bardo, a Stabyhoun, and Huey, a spunky rescue mix that bring her lots of happiness.

When not working, she can be found listening to live music or digging in the garden.
