“I’m incredibly lucky because I really have the best job ever,” says Kim Norton-O’Brien. “I get to help my clients make their home beautiful, functional and most importantly, the place they love best.” Norton-O’Brien Design specializes in affordable, beautiful interior design from concept to completion for projects both large and small. Kim has been designing residential interiors for over ten years and finds South County to be a special source of inspiration. “The beauty of southern Rhode Island – the sea, the sand, the natural landscape and colors – these are gifts to those of us who call this area home. It’s very important to consider the location of the home in the design and our coastal area provides endless inspiration.”

Kim also understands the importance of the designer-client relationship. “I listen, listen, listen. Homeowners know what they like even if they may not be able to fully articulate it. It’s my job to dig in and develop a plan that meets all of the functional needs of the space and elicits a ‘Wow!’” She also believes that hiring a designer should never be intimidating. “I do think there are a lot of homeowners who would like to hire a designer, but don’t for fear of the unknown. Building a rewarding and fun relationship with my clients is one of my favorite aspects of the job. I love the process – and the result! – and I share that love with my clients.”
