Over the years, I’ve had people ask me why they should hire an interior designer when they could just do their own decorating. After all, there’s a billion-dollar industry targeting those weekend warriors and aspiring Do-it-Yourselfers to do just that. I actually love to answer this question, which is a good thing- because I encounter it a lot!

Would you trust building your new custom home to someone who has done handyman work, or would you hire an architect?
A professional interior designer has studied her art, vetted her resources, and can create a cohesive culmination of color, space, light, fabric, texture and many more elements that comprise a great design. At Nicole Arnold Interiors, we not only know how to aesthetically harmonize these items, but also acknowledge the functionality and performance factors to ensure the items will work for your personal lifestyle. What’s more, we can provide custom looks that no one else has but you!
