Karen made her move to the UAE in the 00’s when she was offered the opportunity to design the interior of a 5-Star Al Wahda Hotel in Abu Dhabi, for Millennium Hotels Group. The next few years in the UAE turned out to be a prolific time for Karen, where she carried out a number of impressive projects. These included high profile 5-star hotels and restaurants, such as The Warehouse and the recently opened Long Yin at Le Meridien Hotel Dubai; Centro Hotels for Rotana; the Fairmont Bab Al Bahr Hotel; Rotana Resort Hotel on Yas Island and; The Intercontinental West Bay Hotel and Apartments in Doha, Qatar.
In 2010 Karen ventured out on her own and launched Idolise Interiors, a boutique consultancy, with a scalable business and a client focused approach, dedicated to producing creative yet practical interior design solutions for hospitality, commercial and residential projects. 2012 saw Karen open an Idolise Interiors office in the UAE.
