I take a “no surprises” approach to our project partnership, with clear communication and efficient implementation processes, to help your project finish on time and on budget.

I’d love to talk to you about your project.

I know how overwhelming building a new house can be. You may be wondering how you will be able to make all the decisions that need to be made, often in a very short timeframe. You may be wondering where you can find the products and services you need. You may also be wondering how you can turn your ideas and visions into reality. You may also be worried about how you will fit all this into your already busy life.



I will help you work your way through all the decisions and choices that need to be made when you are renovating. I will also offer you solutions that you may not have thought of and products that you may not have seen before or know were available.

NM Design is an award winning design practice with a reputation for achieving at the highest level of design and exceeding client’s expectations .


We worked with Nicola to undertake a full renovation of our home, including all bathrooms, kitchen, flooring and internal colours. Nicola was professional, provided great options after listening to our tastes and preference and also was a perfectionist when it came time to implement the project. We relied a lot of her suggestions for making the house interesting and pushing outside our comfort zone.

Nicola was always prompt with her communication and always on hand when I needed even the smallest piece of advice when it came down to the final implementation of her design. We also worked with tradespeople who were recommended by Nicola who were also fastidious and professional. All went to plan and when we had any little glitches (as you will always expect with any project of this size) they were fast to resolve and progress.
I would not hesitate to recommend Nicola and Katherine and would happily work with NM Design again in the future.
