“Creating a home that is equally functional as it is beautiful is a job worthwhile. Discovering the unique needs of my customers and helping them achieve their home and lifestyle goals is what grew my passion for interior design.” – Nicole S. O’Dwyer, Interior Designer

About Nicole

Nicole O’Dwyer began with an undergraduate degree in Fashion Design & Merchandising/Interior Design from the University of Rhode Island. Following this, she went to work in the industry to gain experience, but quickly pivoted to business ownership and hasn’t looked back.
Nicole doesn’t simply make things look pretty; she understands the inner workings behind how to achieve beauty. Clients rest in her extensive knowledge of the building and construction process, relying on her to handle the specifics. Traditional and modern are her preferred styles for her home; however, Nicole’s design versatility accommodates multiple styles and aesthetics, giving a timeless, classic feel.
Self-described as professional, organized, and enthusiastic about all things interior design, Nicole’s full-service design approach brings the showroom experience into the client’s home, without interrupting their busy lives. Her in-depth experience and comprehension of the building and design processes guides projects from start to finish, taking care of all the details – all while exceeding expectations.

About NS Designs

NS Designs specializes in full-service interior design and custom window treatments, born from Nicole’s background as a merchandiser in New York City. This quickly evolved into product sales for a home textiles company, then transitioned into an independent business focused on new home construction and virtual interior design services.
For those who have begun the process of building their dream home, NS Designs transforms an overwhelming experience into the enjoyable one it should be. Our history of working with builders gives clients a deep trust in knowing how to marry construction with design processes for the best end results – all with our client-centered approach. Well known for full-service window treatments, we pride ourselves on keeping this in-house, crafting unique looks which soften and complete the room’s design.
NS Designs collaborates with O’Dwyer Design Build for projects which incorporate quality carpentry for customized, yet timeless, millwork details. We will identify what the project needs, then use our industry alliances with architects, furniture makers, and artisans. Our streamlined process lets clients focus on their busy lives, while we take care of the design for them.
Philadelphia Magazine has featured some of our projects, and we are thrilled to have had our expert advice on design and décor published in Homestyle, Home & Garden New Jersey, and First for Women magazines.
