Hi I'm Karen! I'm a native of Miami, FL but got to Texas in 2001 when my husband took a job transfer here. They called it the "Texadus" because so many of the employees of the FL company came to Texas that year. 16 years later we own a real estate consulting company here in North Texas & have had some fabulous opportunities to showcase our work personally and professionally. From features in the Southern Cottage Christmas 2016 and Holiday Decor 2017 magazines, local TV & radio shows and most recently, we had the opportunity to work on an HGTV pilot that filmed here in Dallas in the spring of 2017 . We are always open to new adventures and opportunities when approached!
I love antiquing and sourcing inventory for our business and personal use. I'd be likely classified as a hoarder if it didn't have a purpose! You'll see many of the pieces in the Blue Bungalow have been sourced from all over the country. Much of them from parts in Texas. If you're on the hunt for something special ask me as I may know where you might find it!
We recently ventured beyond our business into vacation rentals. The home is a family owned property but now is used for vacation stays and part business too. I've always loved hosting family and friends and hope you find your stay in the home restorative, restful and rejuvenating while here.
Remember... the journey is the reward.
