Karin Verzariu’s experience encompasses all aspects of design, from homes to corporate headquarters. 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 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. Key Interiors bespoke designs are 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. Environmental sustainability and energy efficiencies are important elements within the design process. Current residential projects include a listed property in Bedford Park, a contemporary apartment in the iconic Neo Bankside building next to Tate Modern, a terraced house in Fulham and a luxurious apartment adjacent to the Savoy Hotel. Recently we completed work on a listed East Sussex house and a glamorous Art Deco inspired penthouse in London which incorporates Smart Home technology and won the 2009 Lighting Design Award for residential projects.
Abroad, Key Interiors recently completed a large apartment in Geneva and a 1820s listed villa near Montreux. Karin’s fluency in French and German facilitates communication with clients, suppliers and craftsmen when working overseas and with clients from outside the UK. Contemporary style commercial projects include a Knightsbridge mansion block entrance hall and reception, and the development of new-build apartments in West London. For a medical Association, Key Interiors carried out a major period refurbishment in keeping with the style of the building, a listed Robert Adam house in Portland Place W1.
