Lyn worked many years as a director of sales for the Peabody in Memphis, the Brown Hotel in Louisville, the Loews Vanderbilt and the Hermitage in Nashville and the Aspen Meadows in Aspen, Co.
After more than 20 years in the hotel business, Lyn was ready for a new adventure and connected with a friend in Nashville to design and build a state of the art pet boarding facility. Lyn pulled together her hotels skills, customer service skills and her interior design capabilities to design and built the Farm at Natchez Trace. At the same time, several of Lyn’s own residential renovation projects were being showcased by local home tours. So after several successful years, Lyn sold her interest in The Farm to her partner and moved back to Louisville to follow her dream in residential design.
Louisville has always held a special place in Lyn’s heart. Upon her return, she bought and renovated a condo building in the Cherokee Triangle. Shortly after, she invested in a national design and décor business and continued to build an additional vertical design business.
By 2012, Lyn was ready to embark on her best investment: herself. Living Spaces by Lyn was born.Living Spaces by Lyn has seen meteoric growth in the past two years with projects ranging from color selection and furniture placement to a full-blown renovation of an entire floor. Most recently, she has worked on condos for international clients and is currently working with a local architectural designer to update and furnish the C-Net Smart House in Goshen, Ky. As her business has grown, so have her diversity and her client base: Realtors, builders, individuals living in the US and abroad.

Karen feels a home should reflect the owner’s interests and be a relaxing refuge from the rest of the world. She shares Lauren Liess’ opinion, author of Habitat, “Decorating is about envisioning how people will wake up, perform daily routines, cook, eat, be with loved ones, party, relax, work, play… it’s about living.”
She was a Design Specialist at Pottery Barn and worked a brief time at Stag & Doe for the Modern Home. There she honed her skills in furniture placement, fabric selection and creating the right mix of elements to give a home that “just right” feel.
Before falling in love with home interiors she spent 14 years in public relations at Chase Bank and Family & Children’s Place before taking time out to have children. While her children were young she was a substitute teacher at St Francis Preschool. There she learned the subtle art of patience and letting things flow.
Karen lives with her husband, two children and a dog named Oliver.
Whether you are selling your current home, staying in your existing home or trying to get settled into a new home, it is my mission to create spaces that will say, “Welcome Home!”
As a Certified Real Estate Stager (CRES) I can create an environment in your home that will appeal to the prospective buyer. While my classroom certification is invaluable, the 30 years of hands-on experience. I have (by way of having a spouse whose career required us to move every several years) is priceless. Those moves gave me a keen eye for what needed to be packed up and what needed to be rearranged to make the home we were selling tell the prospective buyer they’d just found their new home.
Perhaps your home just needs a refresh. As an Interior RE-designer I can use decorating items that you already own and use them differently so that they feel fresh again. I can also offer recommendations for new items that may give your home just the touch you are looking for.
We all want the inside of our home to be welcoming, but the very first impression is at the curb. I have years of experience and knowledge in creating outdoor spaces. I can help you create a welcoming first impression at the front of your home and a peaceful space to relax in your backyard space.
Whether you want me to do all of the work or to give you guidance in what needs to be done, please contact me to discuss how my services can benefit your needs, and make your home say, “Welcome Home!”
“I moved into the home of my dreams—lots of light and high ceilings. Having known Lyn for decades, I asked her to come over and help me with my decorating. I turned over all my artwork and travel memorabilia, which had been collected over my lifetime, and just asked her to “arrange it.” I wanted my personality to be revealed in my home decor and Lyn achieved that. Yes, I do confess and give her the credit.” – Kathy G. / Nashville, TN
