My Marker Girl Story

Growing up in New Orleans, I developed my passion for creativity and interior design. More importantly, I discovered that a true feeling of “home” comes from the family that lives within it.

Shortly after marrying my husband, we were transferred to Paris, France. There, I truly found my creative passion and took the opportunity to study interior design.

After moving back, I started my own business as a Houston Interior Designer.

During this time, I also started my family dreaming of white sofas made of velvet and silk drapery hanging on the wall in our new home.

But one day when my daughter was a toddler, I had that “mommy feeling” that something was up because it was too quiet.

I walked into my living room and found my daughter doing some decorating of her own – drawing with a black Sharpie on herself and on the furniture!

My daughter’s marker “art” was a defining moment.

It was then, I reinvented my business to reflect a Marker Girl way of living. It birthed a passion for sourcing family-friendly furnishings that stands up to real-life living.

For 17 years I’ve helped families just like yours design a cohesive, durable home their whole family loves to live in.

“Karen Davis is the perfect mix of professional and personable, organized and artistic, fastidious and friendly.

She listened to our preferences and offered options that are in line with our needs and lifestyle. The end result is a room that is both beautiful and durable, as we have a large family with small children.”
