Introduction: My team and I are very collaborative with our clients and oversee each step of the design process with extreme care and attention to detail. We see our process as design "layering"; we recognize and celebrate what each contractor brings to the project and how all the furnishings mesh together. We always infuse something unique into each interior project; something that when people walk into the space, they’ll be “wowed”. I love the creativity and uniqueness of each project and the confidence that our clients have in us, to oversee their project and make sure it gets completed to their satisfaction.

It was a pleasure to work with Stephanie Nicolson Design. We had a challenging schedule and budget in order to move our parents into an independent community right before the holidays. Stephanie met with our family on numerous occasions providing us with color pallets, picture boards, and various textures swatches. Once a plan was developed she utilized some furniture showroom floor pieces that helped us meet our delivery needs and also coordinated deliveries from various retailers to provide us convenience.The end result was a beautiful home with artwork, draperies, and bedding used to coordinate and tie in furniture and room transitions. She was practical yet stylish in her design choices for our aging parents and mixed together well updated fashion with warmth and familiarity. We would recommend working with Stephanie and we thank her again for making our parents happy!

Stephanie is designing common areas - hallways, stairs, lighting, etc. - in our commercial office building. This is an ongoing project. Stephanie has been delightful - always prepared, always patient and so creative. We highly recommend Stephanie.

Working with Stephanie was a pleasure. She quickly grasped my tastes and preferences and in a 1.5 hour consultation offered many helpful ideas. Her contract terms are fair and reasonable. She is flexible with regard to how I might use her services as the project proceeds.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    We either charge an hourly rate or a flat design fee depending on the client and project.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Initial meeting is complimentary and after we have a signed agreement, we meet with the client to take measurements, photos and ask a lot of questions to make sure we are going to meet their budget, needs and time frame for the project.

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

    I'm constantly going to seminars and design conventions to learn about new products and services.
