Karen Hall – Design Director

Karen Hall – Design Director

Karen has a strong background in marketing and online publishing, however, her interest in architecture and interior design led her to her own renovation projects and subsequently to complete a Diploma in Interior Design from CPIT.  Karen is involved in industry groups including the Designers’ Institute of New Zealand.

After nine years of working in the design industry she is now the Design Director of Twocan Interior Design.

She believes that good design is a collaborative process between the client and the designer and that two heads really are better than one.


“I wanted up to date colours to move me out of the 70′s and thought I could do it on my own but the choices didn’t seem to work. Karen’s training pointed me in the right direction so that carpet and paint colours in different areas work together. I have the more modern look I wanted and have moved the colours of my home into the present.”

Elegant and classy…

“We started with a tired, worn apartment and with Karen’s knowledge and guidance on colour, product and placement, ended up with a very elegant and classy result that we are very proud of.”

The result we wanted…

“Karen’s professional advice and approach produced exactly the result we wanted. Our 1960′s home now has a contemporary look and still feels like home. The new kitchen looks clean and modern. She sourced excellent choices of appliances and lights. Her advice on the whole design process produced an excellent result and all of our friends have commented on how great it looks.”
