Philosophy


What defines a "dream" or even a "reality" to those who live within is as individual as they are. Sensitive design acknowledges the qualities, personalities, and lifestyles of the owners, interpreting and mirroring them into the home environment. This is accomplished through the imaginative use of detail in such interior elements as the interior architecture, finish details, color, textures, furnishings, and appointments. Julie O'Brien Design Group artistically combines these elements of design to create exquisite and very personal homes.
