Introduction: Design is a very natural expression of who the home owner is or wants to be, I use that awareness to create spaces that are a fundamentally unique to their character. Every project is a blank canvas and it has been my great fortune to create internal harmony between my clients and their surroundings.

Home Staging

The years of professional design experience really showed in the staging. Nicki was great to work with and had really good suggestions to prepare the home to sell. We were very happy with the results!

Home Staging

My wife, my daughter and I lived in a well-furnished home in the east coast for two years before we moved to our then unfurnished apartment in Millbrae CA last month. Since we did not have any furniture and we needed to move in almost immediately, we decided that it might be best to ask for help of a professional who could nicely furnish our flat for us in a very short period of time to save us time, money, energy and headaches. We looked on the internet and put out our request on Thumbtack and immediately received Nicki's reply. In the next few days, she visited our apartment twice and communicated closely with us on the layout, tone, furniture and accessories and promptly worked out a budget and a schedule of deliveries. Everything was done in a week! We moved in(just dropped our bags) and were all impressed by the carefully selected and skillfully arranged colors, furnishings and accessories, and the inviting environment created by Nicki and her team, we could stay here forever! Thank you for your nice work Nicki and I would recommend NBL Design to anyone who is looking for talented adepts to design and stage their homes.

Nicky at NBL Design did an amazing job and helped us sell our $ 2 mill. home in 5 days! She helped us present our home in the absolutely best way possible - and we kept getting compliments about the staging from buyers, neighbors and friends. I did a lot of research about staging and NBL Design is definitely the most competitively priced in the Bay area for upscale/high quality staging.

Home Staging

I couldn't be happier with the great service received from Nicki. Since I was out of the area, she was flexible to go to my home without me and check out the lay out. She immediately gave me an estimate and set up the house within a few days. The house looked spectacular!! It was ready for the open house and had many admirers. We sold quickly and can attribute that to some part to Nicki for her lovely decor. I would highly recommend her to anyone in need of staging to sell their home. It really does make all the difference in the world!

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Yes, I attend trade specific conferences in both LA and NYC. I always use these trips to update myself on current market trends. Occasionally I find myself a couple of extra days and I'll use that time as buying opportunities for specific clients.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    Design, like many professions, is part of your person. Like any artist, it existed from the beginning, and has been fine tuned throughout your life experiences. It's been my great fortune to do something I truly love doing.

  • What types of customers have you worked with?

    The most common type of help I'm asked for is space planning and color selection. Many people have an idea in their heads of what they want, in terms of both style and space, I assist in that transition from their head, to their house.

Not what you’re looking for?

No problem: we have pros for every job.
