In the years since she founded her design firm in 2003, Nicole Hollis has become known for timeless interiors that elevate the human spirit. With an eye for poetic opposites, she combines comfort and luxury, light and shadow, texture and refinement. Her interiors show no cozy clutter, no riot of color, and no rush to embrace the latest trends. Inspired by imperfection, nature and craft, she designs spaces that tell an individual story. The tones and composition of furnishings and materials provide a subtle, tactile backdrop for paintings, found objects, and distinctive pieces.
An in-depth look into several of the most stellar examples of her work, NICOLEHOLLIS: CURATED INTERIORS features residences in city, country, and coastal settings that masterfully blend simplicity of line with organic complexity. A striking home in the Marin County town of Tiburon features natural materials and dramatic touches that embrace the property’s sweeping views of the San Francisco Bay. A Kona Coast property set on a lava field reimagines a Hawaiian open-plan sanctuary with a modern design scheme of rich textures, including lava-basalt floor tiles and coral wall blocks. A San Francisco pied-à-terre is an elegant contrast study in black and white, infused with historical nuances. These curated spaces are comprised of art, found objects, and bespoke furnishings that underscore Nicole’s appreciation of texture, craft, and nature.
In NICOLEHOLLIS: CURATED INTERIORS, Hollis shares her design philosophy, thoughtfully balancing a modern spirit of innovation with a reverence for artisanal workmanship.
