Meet Karen

Hey! I’m Karen Sloan, the founder of Decor Hint. I’m a wife and mom living and loving in North Carolina.

I graduated from Saint Joseph’s University with a degree in Business and Information Technology (IT). My first job was working behind the helpdesk at an accounting firm. A couple years later, I quit and became a Realtor. I sold brownstones and condos in downtown Philadelphia for over ten years.

But then, life got busy. I met my husband Sean while working in Philly. We got married, moved to the suburbs and had two beautiful children. When a job opportunity arose in Seattle, WA, we took it, and bought a 1920s craftsman style home, which we later renovated from top to bottom.

I started documenting the renovation process on this blog, and the rest is history.

My Journey into Home Decor

Growing up, I was always drawn to the world of design and decor. From rearranging furniture in my childhood bedroom to helping friends decorate their spaces, I found joy and fulfillment in the creative process of transforming a room.

Throughout my career as a Realtor and numerous home renovations, I’ve refined my decorating skills. Touring thousands of homes and assisting clients in preparing their properties for sale provided invaluable experience. From my very first condo renovation to a complete rebuild of our Seattle craftsman, and many in between, each project has enriched my skills as a decorator.

Every undertaking has provided valuable lessons, deepened my understanding of home decor, and fueled my passion to inspire others. As the founder of Decor Hint, I am dedicated to empowering individuals to craft spaces that resonate with their distinct style and personality.
