About this Lister

Hi! I’m Karen, an eco-conscious, social justice oriented, DIY enthusiast with a soft spot for furniture left at the curb. My personal decor style is ‘second hand eclectic' — a mish-mash of craigslist scores and freebies, accented by a smattering of newness. This trash picker isn’t opposed to an IKEA product here or there — but I will nudge you toward the solid wood or metal framed pieces.

Background and Expertise

Like many other women, I wasn’t diagnosed with ADHD until adulthood, during a particularly low point in my career. Since then, I have been working with an amazing coach, who has filled my figurative toolbox with insights and skills that have transformed my life. Learning to work with the ADHD traits that used to hold me back helped me turn my lifelong hobby of interior design and furniture restoration into a career.

Coincidentally, my first few clients all had ADHD as well, so we focused on the points of friction in their living spaces, triggered by their ADHD brains, that could be smoothed over with some thoughtful design. Seeing how helpful approaching design and organization through a neurodivergent lens could be, I created Squirrel! to reach clients who weren’t benefitting from neurotypical design and organization advice.

If institutional validation is more your bag, I have a Masters in Design from The School of Visual Arts, and a BFA in Theater Production from Mason Gross School of the Arts @ Rutgers.
