About Nicola

I’ve been bringing unique and practical designs to my clients since 2008.  In practice, I draw on my experience in event management, project management and property development. More than that I draw on intuition to know what you want and translate it into a creative vision.

Designing on instinct, I take into consideration the style of a clients’ property, its location and of course them.  Intuiting what they want and need, I encourage clients to be more daring and tempt them towards the looks that they might not try if they were working alone. I support them to get the look they really want and each project is unique.  To me design is all about balance.  I believe there are no design rules and encourage clients to do what they want, even when they’re not quite sure what that is. I describe my style as a mix of mid Century, modern European and Victorian and beautifully designed things, textures, colours, quirkiness, practicality and consistency are my go tos.  I particularly love the character of properties because of the intricacies and wealth of creative possibilities they afford.  I’m commited to quality design and delivering projects in an organised and frankly quite finicky way.  I remove the stress and try to make things easy for clients.  I have a dedicated team of three with a shared love of cake, crosswords and Nordic noir.

I interpret a client’s brief to create timeless designs, mixing old and new with a strong focus on quality, practicality and individuality.  I design to reflect a client’s style, property, needs and desires, and produce designs which are relaxed yet inspiring and integrate the mind, body and soul.  I feel it’s important for a design to work practically and place high value on organisation, tidiness and beauty.  Essentially, have it because you use it and/or love it!  I add value by managing everything on a client’s behalf.  Most of my clients work long hours and I bring the same attention to detail and level of service they give to their clients.  I’m demanding on their behalf, working with dedicated and reliable project managers to deliver tailored solutions to save clients time and add value.  My recent designs exhibit my new focus on design rooted in the esoteric where I bring together divine finds with a contemporary feel.
