Nicola has helped us to extend and renovate our chalet in Verbier over the past eighteen months, turning it into a warm, comfortable and stylish family home. Working with our local architect and a multidisciplinary team of tradesmen, she designed and managed this complex project from beginning to end, including the lighting system, kitchen, bedrooms and bathrooms, the various living areas and the surrounding garden amenities. She used her excellent communication skills (including in French) to ensure that everything came together in the right sequence and on time.Nicola has great taste and a wonderful eye for detail. She worked with inexhaustible energy to achieve the design we were seeking. Nothing was too much trouble. She sourced all the materials, furnishings, kitchen and bathroom ware, both locally and from London. She has a keen eye for quality, practicality and cost effectiveness.Above all, we felt Nicola listened carefully to what we wanted to achieve, interpreted our input creatively and then executed the plans to perfection. It has been enormous fun working with her and the outcome exceeded all our expectations.
I was absolutely delighted with the end result. What impressed me the most was how receptive and attuned Nicola quickly became to the things that mattered to me. She helped me visualise and realise the environment I wanted to create. I felt 100 per cent part of the process and she facilitated my confidence in the choices we made together. I thank her enormously for the things she gently got me to put to one side. I also loved her thorough, efficient and timely follow up and exact attention to detail. It made light work of the project for me. I felt in very safe hands.”
Nicola combines design flair with practicality and efficiency. Magically, she understood what I wanted to achieve and brought my vision to reality. The end result is a look that way exceeds anything I could have brought off myself and yet everyone who walks into the flat (after the initial ‘ ooh ‘ and ‘wow!”) Says ‘It’s soooo you.
I have worked with a few Interior Designers over the years but Nicola stands out for her common sense outlook, her reliability and responsiveness, her completely transparent business approach and her calm, easy going manner.I can’t recommend her enough.
I am very excited about everything and feel as if I am getting somewhere. Before you arrived on the scene I felt as if I was getting nowhere fast and it all seemed rather overwhelming. Thank you so much Nicola.
By the way, everyone thought your work was absolutely beautiful. You have done a fabulous job.
