Associate & Director of Design
The Johnson Studio

Karen joined The Johnson Studio in 1999 with 5 years’ experience designing boutique and nationally known hotels, including brands such as Hyatt Regency, Hilton, and Crown Plaza. She also created interiors for riverboats and cruise ships.

As Director of Interior Design, Karen manages the daily operations of the interior design department. Karen provides leadership and guidance to each design team and supervises all phases of a project, from conceptual design through construction. Karen believes that the best spaces are created when architects and interior designers collaborate. As an alumna of AIU, formerly the American College for the Applied Arts, Karen was placed on the Alumni Wall of Fame for her achievements as an interior designer in the industry. She continues to give back to the design community by participating in career seminars about restaurant and hospitality design for colleges, universities, and trade shows.

Karen has worked on some of our most prestigious projects, including Aria and Jöel in Atlanta, GA, Manzanita at The Ritz Carlton Lake Tahoe, Fearing’s at the Dallas Ritz-Carlton, The Eiffel Tower Restaurant in Las Vegas, and Cypress in Charleston, SC.
