About

A fresh take on the design process

Tyler Karu works with clients to create their ideal living space through renovation, reimagination and innovative design. In addition to design projects, she has extensive experience in residential construction. This allows her to offer unique real estate development opportunities, ranging from property remodels to new construction.

As the daughter of a real estate developer and a residential designer, Tyler grew up in the family business. She could read blueprints before she hit her teens and made job sites her playground. Although she majored in literature at The George Washington University, she went on to study interior design and architecture at the New York School of Interior Design. Her years in Manhattan infused her education and process with a pace and vibrancy that her work reflects to this day.

Tyler’s career began in earnest when she moved back to Maine and flipped a tiny, neglected cottage, the first of many properties she has taken from derelict to delightful. With her unerring eye for skillful, creative, and innovative transformation, she has gained national recognition as an emerging commercial and residential design talent.

Tyler has the unmatched ability to reimagine the potential in a neglected home or reveal the true personality of a space not yet quite sure of itself. Tyler can be seen on HGTV's House Hunter's Renovation and contributes to MarthaStewart.com.
