Karen O'Brien

KOB Interior Design LLC was established in 2003 following Karen's long and successful career in retail interior design.  Karen's passion has always been fine arts and after earning her Fine Arts degree in painting and living in Italy for several years she entered the world of retail interior design first at Jordan Marsh Boston, then as the Director of Interior Design at Bloomingdales in Chestnut Hill for thirteen years and finally at Domain Home Furnishings. 
Many years of retail design including the execution of the world famous "Bloomingdales Model Rooms", many advertising photo shoots and hundreds of private clients have contributed to Karen's quick take on difficult spaces.
She is able to translate her ideas about color and balance into her interiors.  She prefers a mix of disparate elements and gently urges her clients past their "comfort zone" into new concepts which address both their style and the practicalities of daily life in a unique way.  An unerring eye for detail and the ability to finish your space with special accessories makes every project personal.
Karen can help you shake up your current space by taking a fresh look or can help you with larger projects such as an outdated kitchen, an addition or even a new house.....
