My name is Karen Schmidt, owner of Freshwater Interior Design. My passion for design began over 20 years ago when my husband and I were renovating our first little home in Southern California. I began taking interior design classes at a local college, later received my degree and have been taking on projects over since! My passion grows with every project I work on. I love to take spaces from beginning to completion, working with my clients every step of the way. I love seeing my clients’ faces light up when they walk into their newly designed space for the first time. It’s amazing how a well-designed space can make you feel, knowing everything has its place, functions properly and looks beautiful. It just makes our clients happy – and that makes me happy!
