Karen and Michelle did a wonderful job of helping us transform our “seasonal residence” into our “full time home.” This involved totally reimagining our space and living areas. They beautifully incorporated our favorite pieces into the space with carefully selected additions and colors. They are very talented and creative, and are lovely to work with. We will definitely call them again!
Inspired is the best way to describe the talents of this group: from layout and design to the final touches. Karen helped me craft the perfect plan for a major remodel of a kitchen/laundry/master bath and closet. In just over an hour, Karen sat down with the alternatives to capture the best of each and produced the layout before my eyes that was “it”! The space is absolutely spectacular and I am thrilled. On top of that she helped me move the furniture in the adjoining rooms to complement and freshen up the whole space. Truly inspired talent. I highly recommend Karen and her crew!
“I highly recommend Karen Benson. She has provided our new construction with design, coordination of selections of the various building materials, and now the final touches of furniture layout and interior design. Karen is easy to discuss our thoughts, visions, and goals with. Our dream home has exceeded our expectations and it is all because of Karen’s hard work and dedication to our project. The best thing we did regarding our home, was having Karen be our Interior Designer.”
Benson & Associates are professionals who are creative, deliver on time and budget and don’t cut corners to do it. Love working with pro’s like this. We live 1100 miles away but the project communications, updates and common sense decisions they made were probably better than if we were at the job site personally. We made one trip back to do a final punch list and walk through. As a retired project engineer I can say that having pro’s like Benson & Associates is a real find.
“Karen has the true gift of color and design. She made amazing changes to my dining room simply changing the paint over the chair rail. She is respectful of budget constraints and gives you options. She redesigned our master bath completely, and added architectural design features to our great room completely changing the feel with a few small details.”
Karen is awesome! We contracted with her for a redesign in our home and were so pleased. She and her crew were wonderful. We had seen Karen’s work online and liked what we saw. Once we met her, we knew she was the one for us. She is professional, visionary, fun, edgy, so talented, reliable, (I could go on and on!) etc. We are so pleased with our results and are trying to find another reason to use her services!
“We did a renovation and update of our Villa. Benson & Associates handled every detail and delivered not only on budget, but on time. We couldn’t be more pleased with the results. They were able to capture our lifestyle and imagination and bring it to reality. It would take a book to detail everything they accomplished….ask to see the before and after pictures and you will see the whole story.”
I have used Karen for several projects at my home. The largest was a complete rebuild of my home. She helped with design details and decorating. She and her team are very conscious about functionality and creating the look that you want and working within your budget.”

“Karen and her associate were outstanding Professionals, listening to clients ideas and take in budget when making decorating/staging ideas.”
“We built a new home in FL about one year ago. Our experience with Karen Benson and Associates has been wonderful throughout the building and decorating process. Karen took our thoughts and desires for a comfortable and beautiful home and produced exactly what we wanted. Working with the architect and builder, she formed a partnership that truly made our home beautiful. Her selections of fabrics, wall coverings, paint, furniture and accessories transformed our thoughts into reality. Karen and Krista made sure that we were involved in the complete process, with our input influencing their recommendations throughout the project. I highly recommend Karen and her staff to anyone who is building or redoing a home. You will not be disappointed.”

“We recently engaged Benson and Associates for the complete renovation of our villa. Karen and her associate Shana were extremely professional, creative, and responsive throughout the entire process. They transformed a 90’s style kitchen into a modern open space and workable area which flows nicely into the rest of the home. They were with us throughout every step of the process including design, material selection, and collaboration with our general contractor. We couldn’t be more pleased and would give them as A++ rating for their role in our project. This recommendation is made without reservation. They exceeded our expectations in all instances.”
