Designer Profile | Kara Mann
A Kara Mann designed interior tends to defy categorization. And, of course, this is by design. She has said of her work, “I am always interested in finding both the balance and the tension between sophistication and classicism and irreverence, the cutting edge and the enduring, the feminine and the masculine." A lot of designers might say they seek balance in their work, but I don't think very many would say they purposely create tension. The two are actually quite different. Balance is about playing well with others. With tension, there is a subtle, but very real tug of war for what will grab your attention next. I absolutely love Mann's spaces that meld classic architecture with contemporary interiors.
