We are over the moon with our new space! The whole process has been so easy (for us anyway) and enjoyable! We're forever grateful.

Kathryn Murphy Interiors

At Kathryn Murphy Interiors we find joy in helping clients see their home in new ways - in coming into a room and seeing possibilities instead of limitations.  We believe that home is sacred and that thoughtful, enduring design stems from a deep understanding of the unique way that you live inside your space. Living in and raising a family in the Chicago area often means choosing from leaning Victorians, small-roomed four squares, or a variety of added-upon bungalows. We design for today's families living in these old homes. We have the skill and experience to manage every aspect of your home project - large or small - making the process both efficient and enjoyable. Most importantly, we are adept at collaborating closely with clients, resulting in a home that feels tailor-made for you—because it is.

Based in the Oak Park and River Forest area, KMI is the interior design studio for Chicago and the surrounding suburbs.
