Nicole has worked in the Interior Design Industry for ten years. She obtained her Associates of Arts degree from Delgado Community College in New Orleans, La. with a concentration in Interior Design. In the more recent years, she has worked specifically in high-end residential design. While working in residential design, she was the head designer in charge of conceptual design projects and carried out renovations from start to finish. Working with this particular clientele, she realized the need for this service among the average household. It was a natural progression for her to start her own firm specializing in just that: "affordable design and art". Her use of raw materials, interesting textures, soft upholstery, unique furnishings, accessories and artwork, keeps the space interesting, although remaining very practical. She uses her love of travel, outdoors, food, music, and the city of New Orleans to inspire both her design and canvas art creations.
