The long and short of it

Imagine an interior design company that doesn’t require a gut renovation project to make it worth their while. The Home Studio gives you access to a talented network of interior designers across South Africa who can assist you with any design project according to your style and budget.

The company was started by Karen Steyn, an interior designer who has worked across the world on projects ranging from hotels and cruise liners (and even an ambassadorial space for the Prince of Monaco) to smaller apartments in built up cities where residents focus on address rather than square meterage.

Design is innate to Karen and a fundamental part of her life. Whether she is at home with the family, travelling the world or in the design studio, it inspires her and ignites her creative vision, which she injects into all of her projects.

While living and working in London, Hong Kong and New York she discovered a growing number of people wanting the advice of an interior designer, but put off by the presumed cost. “I have met people – literally around the world – with the desire to make their homes look more ‘put together’ and needing professional help to get them there. While they would have loved the help of an interior designer, they either could not afford one or thought their project would be considered too small for a professional designer.” Karen recognised that this demand led to a growing global trend of boutique interior design offerings.

Realising that there was gap in the South African market to make the luxury of interior design available at every budget, she launched The Home Studio. With a transparent pricing structure, The Home Studio gives you the opportunity to consult with their experts regardless of the scope of your project.

From home renovations to help styling your existing pieces, or even advice on those nagging design dilemmas, The Home Studio has a service offering that will fit your design requirements (and budget).
