Norman Design creates custom interiors designed to capture each client’s essence while standing the test of time. Each finished design reflects its owner’s lifestyle and passions. Whether the end product is impeccably tailored or exquisitely worn-in, it is unmistakably home. We believe a home should wrap it’s arms around you and welcome you home from the chaotic world. Norman Design Group is a diverse design firm, small enough to give each of our clients personalized attention while big enough to manage design work on large scale homes. We work closely with our clients on every project, educating them about the design process so they can make intelligent choices for their home.
