KARR BICK ANNOUNCES IT’S LAUNCHING A NEW INTERIOR DESIGN DEPARTMENT. The Karr Bick Kitchen and Bath Team welcomes designer Ashley Willman Obradovits. Ashley will head the company’s new interior design department, which aims to bring the Karr Back 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 spent a decade in the luxury retail market in St. Louis. At Nordstrom, Ashley was the Customer Relationship and Personal Styling Manager. Most recently, Ashley was the Area Marketing Manager for Saks Fifth Avenue. Ashley studied Architectural Design at Mount Holyoke College. ABOUT KARR BICK Karr Bick’s Kitchen & Bath showroom is located in Brentwood. Jenny & Todd Rausch bought the reputable business from Karr Bick in 2006 with the hopes of building a company that felt like family. They are known for creating spaces that are #NothingOrdinary.
