With a degree in Interior Design and a decade of experience in the industry, Nichola has worked with a variety of clients who sought a space to be proud of. But over time she became disillusioned with the need for show-home-worthy interiors that are more for display than the comfort and well-being of the user.

 

As someone who knows the importance of good mental health, Nichola believes  our environment can contribute to many of the mental difficulties we experience.

As a result of her own dance with anxiety and dissociation - a perpetual feeling of being disconnected from her body and surroundings – she sought out ways to feel centered, safe and supported by her environment. 

With an empathic approach and a desire to offer reassurance to her clients, Nichola uses her learnings to bring others a sense of safety in their surroundings.

It is Nichola's eye for detail and perception of energy that really underpins her ability to create balance. Her approach is very intuitive and she describes following a "felt-sense" of the environment when designing.

 

Colour brings her joy, but she believes it can be used conservatively to achieve a greater effect, and incorporating plant life is a fundamental element of her designing as she seeks to awaken our innate connection with the natural world and soften the built environment.

Above all, Nichola hopes to abolish the expected notion of what interior design involves, and offers a relaxed approach that is not overwhelmed with technicalities. 

A word from Nichola: "This is not about choosing a wallpaper to match your curtains. My purpose is to help you create a space where you feel safe to meet your inner self. Encouraging you to explore the energy of your environment and how it actually feels to reside there.”
