About THE studio

Karen Butler Interior Design is a Melbourne based studio that offers a personable and considered approach to all interior design projects.

Collaborating closely with the client, project team and other specialists, I encourage a holistic and practical exploration for ideas and solutions, in order to enrich how interior space is lived or experienced. Attention to detail ensures a refined environment that offers comfort, security and functionality.

My aim is to create authentic spaces that reflect the people who will inhabit them.
