With her sister as client, designer Karen O’Brien
knew just how to create a uniquely personal home
the informal dining area, part of the great-room scheme,
is an extension of the kitchen with both the tall cupboard
and red sideboard custom made to house appliances. The
adjacent family room (facing page) is decorated with a
deer head inherited from Donna Perkins and Karen
O’Brien’s late father, an avid hunter.
