Parkes Interior Stylist, Karen Creith, has come a long way from writing her decorating column in the Parkes Champion Post in 2009 to now launching her own national magazine.
Karen officially released her first edition of her magazine, Styling Your Home With Karen Creith, recently at the Parkes Services and Citizens Club. With a passion for interior decorating and style that is almost contagious, and excitement to match, Karen couldn’t be more thrilled to see how this journey has unfolded.
“The magazine is more of an instructional guide to styling rather than just the usual inspirational shots seen in decorating magazines that don’t tell you how to create the look for yourself,” Karen said. “Whether it is a small or large project, I still feel the same satisfaction when I have helped my clients make themselves their very own private sanctuary.
“I am very passionate about this – it can be really easy and simple sometimes to make a very big difference in how people can enjoy their time at home,” she said.
It all began when Karen, her husband John and brother in- law Peter Creith wanted to advertise their family business, Furniture One, in the Champion Post from a different angle.
Her own local column, as well as showcasing their newly styled home, soon had Karen writing for national and regional magazines.
From a young age, Karen has always loved decorating and styling within her own home.
Now 40 and proud of it, the mother of two is loving the opportunity this new career has given her to expand her relationships professionally and personally.
With a thriving family business, her own magazine hot off the press and the chance at meeting a wide variety of people within her job along the way, Karen has found a new confidence in herself and is eager to tackle any challenges that come her way.
“I never thought I would have these kinds of opportunities while I was living a simple life in the country,” Karen said.
“It’s amazing what can happen,” she said. Styling Your Home With Karen Creith goes on sale nationally and is available at all newsagencies.
