Half and Half designs was started by Karoline Kable. Karoline wanted to bring design to anyone who wanted to be surrounded by beautiful things that comforted and calmed them. Today unless you have a great eye or a fabulous budget you may not get the quality of design you would like to have. Half and half designs with a little help from you can give you a professional semi-custom design. Karoline's credentials include being an Accredited Interior Designer through the National Council for Interior Design Qualification as well as a professional member of the American Society of Interior Designers. Through Kable's university schooling, experience, and certifications her interiors have been recognized as inventive, laid back, and livable.
Karoline grew up in Texas where her roots run deep in design. Being raised around beautiful antiques with a mother who's eye for design was unmatched, Karoline's love for all things design came naturally. Karoline now lives in downtown Charleston and enjoys being immersed in incredible new and old architecture & interiors. She loves that there is something new to see each time you walk around downtown, not to mention all the treasures you can find in Charleston antique stores!
Kable’s career began in 2000 working as an intern for an incredible mentor and friend, Lynn Moran, ASID, who’s projects span all over Texas. Kable received her Bachelors in Interior Design and moved to Charleston in 2005 to follow her love of design. She worked for Amelia T. Handegan, Inc. and Barlow and Bishop, LLC while in Charleston which along with her work under Moran gave her the experience and knowledge necessary to continue her career on her own.
Half & Half Designs started out as one interior designer's desire to reach people who wanted great design but did not need a full service custom design firm. There is a great divide between blogs that offer us great tips and leave us to our own devices, and design firms that do your whole project but charge you accordingly for that work. If you fit in this divide, half & half designs is for you. We split the work, cut those fees, & end up with a beautiful design just for you!
