Passionate about everyday life's moments and experiences, Principal Designer, Kara Haren, takes time to listen, learn, and create beautifully curated spaces for her clients. With a focus on making interior design approachable, Kara believes creating a beautiful space does not derive it of function. 


Launching her career in New York City's Fashion industry, Kara worked in corporate merchandising, selecting designer assortments by season - mixing materials, patterns and color palettes. Exchanging styling flagship stores to styling catalog photoshoots, she moved to San Francisco to pursue interior design for Pottery Barn Corporate. As a Director of Accessories & Styling, she traveled the world sourcing beautiful adornment for the home. Creating each catalog room's story firsthand, Kara knew launching an interior design company of her own was her dream path.


Named after the arrival of her first daughter, Along Came Lennox, is an interior design firm that builds the foundation of each client project on their individual story.  Kara celebrates each client’s space by customizing it to allow their style to be self-expressed, while maintaining her philosophy of beauty, comfort, and functionality. Along Came Lennox layers a casual, yet eclectic vibe to each space, working to celebrate the client’s style and bones of the home.


Along Came Lennox is an interior design firm specializing in furnishings and soft styling, to remodels and new builds.

We work with our clients to assess what stays vs. goes, reassess the layout for optimal functionality and identify up front how much design assistance, per space, is needed.

Full Home to Single Room Design

With a blank slate, we dive into the aesthetic and function of the space, and design the dream. An aspirational moodboard and initial product direction for kick-off, followed by product proposals and renderings at each stage of the client design process.


Working in tandem with a General Contractor, we align on a schedule and identify the layout of each space. We work with our clients to design the beautiful ‘big picture’ vision, and source down to the little details that transform a space.

New Builds | Comprehensive Remodels

Similarly to above, we create a blueprint for the general aesthetic direction of the home, and drill down the design details by each space. We work closely with our clients and the GC’s to build the dream, comprehensively and on-time.
