While studying at the University of Western Ontario (BA 2007), Nicole spent two summers interning for Tory Burch at her New York City design studio.  During her Big Apple experience, Nicole developed her appreciation for and love of fabrics, colours and pattern, and discovered the world of all things vintage. Once back home, Nicole made a natural transition into the world of residential design and became a member of Sarah's team in 2009. In addition to her work as a project manager on private client projects, she has also worked on several seasons on the production side.

Nicole loves to work with soft palettes and injects colourful accents to add pizzazz to each and every project. Clients appreciate Nicole's fresh and sophisticated style, her attention to detail, her strong organizational skills (and her sweet yet confident demeanour). With each job, Nicole understands the need to achieve the perfect balance of style and function.

Nicole loves to travel and draws inspiration from the different sights, smells and sounds encountered when exploring the nooks and crannies of Italy, France, The Netherlands, and most recently Costa Rica.  Nicole recently married her long time best friend, Isaac, and they are currently planning a trip to South America for later this year.
