I’m Karen Goodman; interior designer, house flipper, DIY addict, and accidental chair hoarder. I love a good vintage piece and a good deal, and finding both at once brings me sheer joy. I’ve been married to my hubby, Brian for the better part of a decade and recently welcomed our baby boy.  We share our small but quaint 116+ year old Boston area home with our cats, Daisy and Charlie.

After many years in corporate and healthcare design, I realized that I craved a more personal and hands-on approach to design. That’s when I started flipping houses and rediscovering my excitement for residential design. While old houses really are my passion, every home, no matter it’s age has a story to tell. Don’t let your home tell the story of the previous owners or what a catalog thinks your space should look like. Your home should be uniquely YOU. When your environment reflects your interests, joys, and values, that’s when you’re truly home. I’d love to help you discover how to share your story through your home. Click here to get started.

I started blogging more than a few years ago as a personal creative outlet. The then blog, Year of Serendipity, became a chronicle of my diy projects, home renovations, house flips, and design evolution which can still be found in the Copper Dot Blog archives. Today, this blog is a place where I hope that I can encourage you to take on that project you’ve been too afraid to, inspire you to try something new in your home, and simply get you excited about design! … and power tools!… but mostly design!
