Karen Chanan

Karen Chanan’s design philosophy is simple yet certain: your home should be a reflection of you. A walk through your home should paint a picture of who you are, where you’ve been and what you love.

A life-long passion for interiors led Karen to the Harrington College of Design, then to managing her own interior design firm, and finally to Normandy Remodeling where she specializes in kitchen and bath projects as well as interior remodeling. She views her clients as partners in the design process, and believes that the relationships she builds are just as important as the projects she helps facilitate. Karen’s collaborative design approach, combined with her experience in the areas of color, texture and functionality, helps her clients reach their project goals – achieving the ideal solutions for their home, lifestyle and budget.

Prior to earning her design degree from Harrington and becoming an allied member of the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID), Karen graduated from Indiana University where she met her husband, Paul. The couple lives in Deerfield with their children Jake and Maya, and their cavachon, Lulu.
