“Nicola Manning Design provided interior design and interior project management for our new home in Auckland.

Nicola and her team were excellent to work with and very responsive to last minute requests and changes. Nicola has very strong supplier and contractor relationships. These helped make the project smooth and hassle free.

If you live in Auckland and want an interior design job well done, call Nicola.”

“Nicola Manning has been working with us for a number of years. On a trade level Nicola is someone who is easy and professional to work with.

She has a good grasp of what her clients are looking for, guiding them in the right direction. She is always on trend with a good eye for lines, proportions and textures.

Would be happy to suggest her to anyone looking for a knowledgeable design professional.”

“Nicola is a fantastically easy person to work with. She listened well to what I was trying to achieve and all her suggestions for both, use of space and colour, were perfect. She was very efficient and timely in all aspects of her service and I felt that every cent we spent with her was worthwhile. Her fees were extremely moderate and I would thoroughly recommend her services. Her cabinetry designs were spot on and the tradesmen she recommended were very professional. I would use Nicola again tomorrow and would happily recommend her to anyone interested.”

“Nicola did a great job of a makeover to my inner city Penthouse apartment… without breaking the bank.

This involved new floor and wall coverings, curtains, kitchen and all new furnishings. I have ended up with a very comfortable apartment which feels and looks great. Nicola was very easy to work, understood what I was after and just go on with the job. I am thrilled with the end result.”

“We were amazed at how quickly and easily Nicola transformed our Parnell home.  Nicola listened carefully to what we wanted to achieve from the renovation, she added her exceptional design flair and efficient project management skills and the result has been fabulous.  Nicola completely transformed our house from inside to outside and seamlessly managed all of the tradespeople.

Nicola designed and managed the installation of our new kitchen and bathrooms, she designed the internal and exterior colour schemes and helped us select furniture and window dressings.  Nicola is friendly and approachable and great to work with.  I have no hesitation in recommending her as a designer.”

“Over the last ten years Nicola has helped us with a kitchen and bathroom renovation in one house and then more recently helped us with a total renovation of another house.
We have found her to be creative and efficient, with an eye for detail, but also listens to your wishes and needs.

Her project management skills and relationships with trades people ensure that the project is delivered on time and within budget. This makes the renovation process an enjoyable experience.”

“Nicola Manning was responsible for creating a special ‘look’ in my home in Parnell when we renovated the kitchen, four bathrooms, the laundry and the interior colours, window treatments, and wooden floors over a three year period.
Nicola is extremely artistic and ahead of the trends; she has extensive contacts in the design industry so she is a mine of helpful information and can source ideas and products from virtually anywhere.

Nicola Manning cheerfully provides total support; everything a client might want from a creative interiors genius. She can work in a family setting because she understands the importance of logistics. Nicola’s secret weapon is that gets jobs done quickly and with minimum fuss; she knows the right team to employ for every job. She is reliable and understanding; and a joy to work with.”
