Carla Greene Designs
Carla Greene Designs started with a love of interior design and the desire to help clients create comfortable, stylish spaces to reflect their distinct personalities – all with respect to a budget. After leaving a corporate career to raise a family, Carla combined her organized side with a creative, people oriented focus to launch a new design career. She began with window treatment design and fabrication. As a full service design company since 2002, the business has continued to grow with residential and commercial projects as well as model home staging for local builders. Carla specializes in creating a very personalized experience for each client.
Cider Street Designs
Colleen has always loved interior design and home decorating. Over the year’s, she has helped family and friend’s with their spaces and realized that her passion for all of this stemmed from the feeling that she could give people by making their house a home. A few year’s ago, after having her 4th child, she took the plunge and decided to form CSD. Her mantra then is the same as it is now. You should LOVE your home. She is a firm believer that design should not be scripted. There are no steadfast rules. A home should comfort and inspire while being a true reflection of the people, places and things that you love most. Colleen feels honored to be able to help her client’s do just this and recognize that their home is their sanctuary. Colleen recently received an award for Best of the Seacoast 2018 in Interior Design, taking 2nd place overall.

Your Rooms Re-imagined
Karen’s passion for home renovation and interior design started through designing her own home, and re-imagining her friends’ and family’s homes. Inspired by traditional and contemporary styles, Karen’s love for design enables her to bring out the best potential in any space. Over the past year and a half, Karen has worked as a design assistant for Renee Carman of Mandeville Canyon Designs.
