Nicole’s design philosophy is simple. She believes that good design begins with a good concept. A glance at one of her spaces might reveal clean-lined contemporary minimalism or transitional-meets-modern eclecticism. “It’s all about the aesthetic balance and functionality,” she says. “I start each project by carefully listening to my client's requirements and then applying basic principles of design to achieve their needs and bring their vision to life.”
Since graduating from the esteemed interior design program at El Centro College and earning bachelor of fine arts degrees in art history and marketing from the University of New Mexico as well as an associate of arts degree from New Mexico Military Institute, Nicole has worked as a private-label production designer for Robert Allen and Ralph Lauren, and as an assistant designer at Wilson & Associates, an award-winning international interior design firm.
Now designing residential and commercial interiors at Cantoni since 2002, Nicole collaborates with clients across the globe to create spaces that fuse style and comfort. “Cantoni is a living concept, a philosophy driven by a passion for success and a love of great design,” she says. “It’s an exciting place to be that allows me to grow as a designer.”
