Key Interiors create inspired designs and bespoke interiors for residential and commercial projects
Each project represents a unique collaboration with the client, interpreting their wishes and enhancing their individual taste. A large proportion of work is for existing clients who return to us whenever or wherever they move. Karin Verzariu’s 30 years’ experience encompasses all aspects of design, from homes to corporate headquarters.
Karin and her team at Key Interiors enjoy combining various design periods or work on exclusively contemporary or traditional interiors. The company offers a full design, tender and project management service and can advise on the purchase and display of antiques and works of art. Environmental sustainability and energy efficiencies are important elements within the design process.
The company’s friendly and accessible approach to clients, imaginative interpretation of their wishes and attention to every detail ensures complete satisfaction. The team oversee the execution of projects by specialists and highly skilled cabinet-makers. Key Interiors works on all sizes of projects.
Key Interiors also welcomes inquiries from architects, managing agents, developers and surveyors and will assist with all interior design.
Key Interiors’ work has featured in numerous interior design magazines.
Karin has lectured on interior design in Beijing and Moscow and taken part in panel discussions in Chicago. A Member of the British Institute of Interior Design for over 25 years, and until recently a Director, Karin is on the Institute’s interview panel for new membership.
Key Interiors produce bespoke designs realised by highly skilled craftsmen, cabinet makers and contractors. The team enjoy designing unique pieces to suit clients’ specific requirements, and advise on the purchase of antiques and works of art. They are adept at creating functional and practical spaces without any loss of aesthetics and produce clear drawings and colour schemes to make the plans very understandable to clients.
Karin has recently launched Black & Key, showcasing her elegant collection of luxurious furniture and accessories. All pieces are meticulously hand made in England in beautiful veneers with perfectly polished nickel and inlaid mother of pearl details. The collection can be customised to suit.
