An up close smiling portrait of Ashley-Willman-Obradovits

When Todd and Jenny bought Karr Bick back in 2006, they knew they wanted to help create spaces inspired by their clients. Spaces that no one wanted to leave and felt like #NothingOrdinary. As the company has grown, they’ve found more ways that they can support their clients in achieving this feeling. That being said, we are pleased to announce a new department!

For some time now, we’ve been receiving questions about all things interior. Regardless of if it was related to paint colors, what towels to buy, or what they should hang on their wall, the questions kept coming. Since the Karr Bick mission revolves around creating your own personalized #NothingOrdinary space, our new interior design department and services will answer all these questions to make your space special.

To be specific, our new Residential Interior Design Services include:
– Space Planning
– Furniture, Accessory, and Art Selections
– Custom Window Treatments and Bedding
– Furniture Design and Production
– Re-Design
– Finish Selections
– Purchasing, Procurement, and Installation

Meet Ashley

Ashley Willman Obradovits


In addition to the announcement of a new interior design department, we are so pleased to welcome designer Ashley Willman Obradovits. Ashley will head the new department, which aims to bring the Karr Bick standard of quality and detail to the entire home.

Ashley, daughter of the late accomplished local designer, Sonja Willman (Summer House), hopes to carry on her mother’s legacy with her own touch. “I like to take an outside-the-box approach with my clients. Mixing old and new to create a space that is truly unique and personal. Getting to know my clients and helping them discover their own personal design aesthetic is very rewarding,” she says. “My mother’s design mantra was to think of the logical thing, then do the opposite. To take something out of the trash and display it with fine China. I have always followed her lead in creating spaces that are as welcoming as they are unique.”

Prior to joining Karr Bick, Ashley studied Architectural Design at Mount Holyoke College and spent a decade in the luxury retail market in St. Louis. At Nordstrom, she was the Customer Relationship and Personal Styling Manager. Most recently, Ashley was the Area Marketing Manager for Saks Fifth Avenue.

One of the Ashley’s proudest design moments was the completion of her daughter Piper’s nursery. Below,you can find some cherished pictures of the space.
