About Karen

Karen Sloan is the founder of Decor Hint. She’s a penny-pinching wife and mom living in beautiful North Carolina. As a Libra, she was born with a passion for design. She’s a self taught designer and is a firm believer that you don’t need a degree in interior design to have the home of your dreams. She loves to shop, but hates spending a lot of money unless it’s something she really wants. That’s why this blog is chock full of budget-friendly home finds, thrifting tips and DIY projects.

Karen received her Bachelor of Science in Business & Information Technology from Saint Joseph’s University, and has had careers in both technology and real estate. She’s also been a guest participant in the popular One Room Challenge.
