Karen Mooney is the Vice President of Creative at Atlanta-based home decor retailer, Ballard Designs. Her daily challenge is to make sure everything the Ballard customer sees and experiences is beautiful and inspiring — whether it’s the design of a room, the layout of a page or the logo on a box. Happy to have her here today. She’s a smart and stylish lady and I too can appreciate a little leopard in my life. Enjoy!
