Karen and Innovative Impressions' staging gave my investor’s property the extra boost it needed and most definitely contributed to the property quickly going under contract. I highly recommend her staging services and plan to use her on future projects.

We are in the process of getting our home ready to sell. Karen has given me great suggestions on changes we can make to create a brighter, open look. She has suggested ways to rearrange our furniture and decorations to give the house a clean, uncluttered look. I highly recommend Karen to anyone looking to sell a home, or decorate a new or current space!

We attended an art themed silent auction. When we entered the event, we were immediately drawn to the painting and we fell in love with it. The colors are unique and the attention to detail is amazing. The choice of frame along with the subject matter made it stand out.  Not only is it exceptionally painted, the subject of a European Robin is very interesting to us as my husband is European. Karen is a very talented artist and we love our painting!

What a difference Karen made by grouping furniture and adding artwork to transform an abandoned corner in our garden room into a proper office! Karen went right to work to redesign the space by anchoring the area with a rug and adding plants for an inviting space. She professionally hung pictures and organized my office clutter into total efficiency! Thank you for your professionalism to create a new office in less than a day.

My husband and I finally decided to put our house on the market to sell. We desperately needed help with the staging part.  Karen gave us excellent advice and recommendations.  We're in the process of staging and we are excited to get our home listed and sold.  I can't wait to have Karen give us design advise with our next home.

Working with Karen was truly delightful! I had seen a painting of a small bird on her website and totally fell in love with it.  I contacted her to ask if she could repaint it for me, describing exactly what I wanted. She agreed, gave me a time frame, and sent a photo (via a text message) when the painting was completed. It was absolutely perfect!!! I highly recommend checking out Karen's work and giving her a call.

Karen Whipple is a phenomenal stager. She gave me great ideas and helped me rearrange furniture I already had. I was particularly impressed when she told me several houses she staged got above- asking price offers. I would highly recommend her.

Seven showings and 3 above asking offers!  

I cannot thank Karen enough for her advice and expertise. Getting our home ready to sell seemed a daunting task, but Karen let me know just what we needed to do to make our home list-ready. She worked with the furnishings we already had and made suggestions in areas where I was willing to buy new things. She even offered to go shopping for me!

After learning I would be hosting two parties at my home during the Christmas season, I reached out to Karen to help me decorate.  At our initial meeting, she shared so many creative ideas. The results were stunning!  My home looked like it was ready for a photo shoot with Southern Living Magazine.  Working with Karen was so easy and enjoyable.  I would highly recommend the services of Innovative Impressions.

I can't thank Karen enough for helping me this year by shopping for greenery and accessories and helping me put up everything. She also made a beautiful arrangement for my basement!

Our living room was used for multiple purposes: an office, a sitting room, gymnastics area, and piano practice.  Karen transformed our living room into an area that provided more seating for guests, highlighted my grandmother's painting, and displayed collections on the built-in shelves.  


This room now feels calm and inviting.  I would highly recommend Karen to transform your space!

I contacted Karen to redesign our family room where we watch television, read, and gather when we have guests.  The room felt so dark and heavy, so one of the main goals for the room was to lighten the area.  

Karen provided more seating and additional lighting, as well as a lighter feel to the room with an area rug, accessories, and art.  

We are enjoying our new space!  Karen exceeded our expectations!

​Karen has just the right blend of traditional and a fresh new eye for decorating and staging to address

the Atlanta market. She visited my home to help re-design a teen suite.  Without wasting time, she had

the vision to re-arrange furniture, trading pieces in various rooms to give the room a fresh new look.

We hung pictures, adding sheers to give the teen suite a more mature college look.


Also with her high energy, Karen refreshed my living room to make it more family friendly and relaxed.

She pulled pictures from the basement and garden room to give the family space a more casual updated

look and feel. She is a high energy design professional ready to take on the task of any project to stage

or redesign.

Innovative Impressions was recommended to me by a friend after the staging company I was planning on using was backed up and could not meet my schedule. I met with Karen at the house and we walked through the vacant rooms I wanted staged and listened to Karen’s recommendations of the types of furniture she was planning on putting in the house. 

At first I was concerned the rooms would not be filled enough, but once the final staging was done, the results FAR exceeded my expectations. What really gave the rooms the added finish was all the personal staging items Karen brought in addition to the staging furniture. The final result was that we had an acceptable offer within 24 hours of putting the house on the market. 


If you have a vacant house or one that needs some reconfiguring and staging updates I would highly recommend home staging and Karen’s professional knowledge and experience.

This oil painting depicts a pacific golden plover foraging in the tide. He has lost the black feathers which normally adorn his face and breast, so it is likely winter. His golden reflection is captured in the foreground of the canvas. I purchased this painting at a benefit auction in Marietta. This sweet bird reminded me of some plovers I saw while walking on the beach in California. They have impressive endurance as they are able to fly almost 5,000 km in a period of 3-4 days when they migrate between Alaska and Hawaii. Karen Whipple has captured him in the midst of finding something to eat. Wading in the tide, one of his delicate legs is reaching forward and his long thin beak is partially open as he is about to retrieve a bite, perhaps a cladoceran or tiny isopod. I wonder if this little fella is taking a short snack break en route to his winter home in Hawaii?
