JOHN WILLIS HOMES
Over the past 4 years, I have worked with Emily on several remodel and new construction projects. She is an absolute pleasure to work with and is extremely talented in space planning and design. Clients love her fun personality, new and creative ideas, and great communication skills. Emily has always kept the selection process moving ahead of schedule making the projects much more efficient. I would highly recommend EK interiors!
Working with Emily was such a joy! She did a complete renovation of our home and was able to make our vision come alive while preserving the original architecture of the house...She pays close attention to detail and leaves no corner unnoticed. From working with her long distance, she is a great communicator and we felt comfortable trusting her with decisions. We could not be happier in our new lake home!

I absolutely loved working with Emily! She is confident, creative and full of good suggestions. I pretty much gave her free reign with my kitchen remodel, and I am thrilled with how it turned out. Emily is not afraid to give you her opinion and would reassure me whenever I wavered. She worked will with my contractor, got things accomplished in a timely manner and is so patient! I recommend her highly!
We had the pleasure of working with Emily on the design and construction of our new home for over a year. Emily was instrumental in helping us create a unique home that reflects our individual style and personality. Her innovative ideas brought not only beauty and a graceful flow throughout the home, but a functional and practical living space as well. Her attention to detail with color selection, room proportions, and continuity gave our home its timeless character. From the unique ceiling applications to the prized “working” pantry, we love our home!
Emily’s ability to manage a project of this size is a real testament to her talents. Her professionalism, knowledge of construction, and organizational skills far exceeded our high expectations. Our home has brought us much joy and we feel blessed Emily was there to guide us with her expertise. We give the highest recommendation for Emily Karempelis and her comprehensive design service.
Last year, I bought a charming 1940's home in Ashford Park. The kitchen had one drawer, hence the urgent need for a makeover! My experience throughout the process of my kitchen renovation with Emily was terrific. Easy to talk to, Emily promptly responded to emails, and remained interested in the progress. Her reliable communication facilitated the entire renovation experience. She incorporated my style and vision into the overall plan, and the outcome was truly beyond my expectations. Taking a small, out-dated kitchen in an older home, Emily transformed it into a functional, inviting space that I will enjoy for years to come. I will certainly call Emily for any future renovations.

We have known Emily for several years and recently had the opportunity to work with her on the complete renovation of our lake home. We relied on her to redesign our entire kitchen area, master bedroom and bath. In the design of these areas her attention to detail was impeccable. In addition, we updated the entire house and she did an excellent job of listening to our vision and needs. She has a vast array of resources and suppliers who provided us with excellent products and service. Emily has an excellent sense of color, materials and textures. We are extremely happy with the results of our remodel and highly recommend Emily for any residential design job.
We are a residential and commercial family owned building company who prides themselves on providing a memorable turnkey building service. We strive to leave customers with the best possible experience regardless of the scope of the project. Emily has provided the missing piece of that puzzle! Her designs are on point with tremendous attention to detail all with the respect of the customers vision for the project. Emily has helped us with as little as providing a general design to help the customer "see" the vision for the project, all the way to trim, paint colors, tile, and flooring selections. She has been an invaluable part of many projects and she leaves us always looking forward to working with her again!!
Working with Emily has been one of the best partnerships I’ve had as a fellow designer. We hired Emily to come and help us redesign our kitchen. Being a designer myself, I needed someone that I could trust who could envision my kitchen in a way I hadn’t before. (A surgeon should never perform on themselves or family). So my husband and I set out to hire an architect/designer who could share our vision. We interviewed quite a few but when we met Emily we both knew she was the one. She understood that working with me was going to be the ultimate partnership. I told her right from the start, I would do all of our selections, we just needed her to look at our space and come up with new and fresh ideas/plans for the kitchen. We tore it down to the studs and went with her “plans”. She stood by and supported us where and when we needed it.
I have since given her name to several friends and even clients of mine. She is super talented, creative and best of all, a joy to work alongside.
