Karen Cole's Home

Put personality on display with colours and patterns.

Karen Cole — interior designer for ColeDuron Interior Design — has a bold and eclectic personal style. Her advice for an organized home: "Have dual-functioning pieces so everything has a proper resting place." She also organizes furniture to work with the space's natural lighting, creating cosy reading nooks and welcoming, well-lit entertaining areas.
