For the past 20 years I’ve been decorating and restyling spaces, in 2012 I followed my life long passion for interior design and started Karrie Franks Interiors. I am a designer with a passion for coastal influences, vintage finds and modern lines. With a no rules approach to interior design, I believe no matter the budget or stage in life you can have a space that reflects both your lifestyle and personality.
In 2013 as my design work was gaining popularity I was given an opportunity to design a local restaurant, Cantine Wine Pub in Aptos, CA, this lead to designing my second restaurant in 2015, The Creek Eatery in San Jose, CA. Having the opportunity to design spaces for people to gather and create memories over great food and drink is very rewarding and a lot of fun!
In 2015 I started working with realtors consulting on interior and exterior upgrades for homes that would be listed for sale in the Bay Area Real Estate Market. Seeing a need for a more modern approach to home staging, I submitted a staging proposal for a home I consulted on and my proposal was accepted. The home received multiply offers over asking and numerous compliments on my work, combined with how much I enjoyed staging the property lead me to launch the Home Staging division of Karrie Franks Interiors.
I feel so fortunate and honored to have had so many amazing clients in Santa Cruz and the Bay Area trust my design vision for their homes and businesses. In the winter of 2017 my family re-located to Orange County, now residing in Laguna Niguel, I'm super excited to continue doing what I love, working with clients to achieve their design goals and helping homeowners prepare their property for market.
