Nicole quickly understood my personal style and goals and was a pleasure to work with in creating a space that I love. Before I started working with Nicole, I was completely overwhelmed by all of the choices available. Nicole helped to narrow those choices and decision making suddenly became easy and fun. She challenged me to consider things I never would have done on my own, and those are now my favorite parts of the design! I was amazed with what Nicole was able to do with my budget and she found a way to exceed my expectations with almost every task. My space is now fun, functional, current, and (most important) feels like home. I have enjoyed working with Nicole so much that I continue to enlist her help with new projects as I think of them.
I have always wanted to work with a decorator but have been skeptical of finding someone who would pay attention to me and my style and not try to sell me a bunch of things that weren’t really about me. I want my home to reflect who I am and how my family lives. I decided to give Nicole Lanteri a try with the master bedroom. When she didn’t make any notes at our first meeting, I was still skeptical. But the prompt, professional proposal accurately reflected what I was after: grown up, comfortable,colorful, and playful. From there, Ms Lanteri pulled together the in-progress kitchen renovation. But her solution for the awkward, eccentric living room made the room beautiful and functional as it had never been before. What I appreciate and admire most about Ms Lanteri is how carefully she listens to what I say then responds with a creative, unexpected solution that meets all the needs of the room. Sometimes it’s as if she is my alter ego. And I especially love that she does the shopping.

Amanda C. A LIVING SPACE AS ELEGANT AS IT IS CASUAL
Nicole Lanteri has great vision, but she is so much more than a designer: she is a life coach for your home, helping clear away clutter and make practical choices that suit your changing needs. When we had a baby on the way, Nicole patiently worked with us to update our house with furniture that could withstand the approaching mess, and created a nursery that would be able to evolve in the years ahead (even helping us organize his tiny closet before he was born). She took all of our revisions in stride, and did not stop until every last piece was in place, even when we got distracted by other things. And to our great surprise, she did it well within our budget. Unlike other decorators we interviewed, who complained that it would be impossible to update our house on limited funds, Nicole seemed to delight in finding bargains for us. Best of all, she was a joy to be around. Nicole has a persistent, detail-oriented personality that make her the perfect custodian of your house. She understands that her clients are busy people who need her to not only pick out designs but then to actually get the job done.
Anne K. A LIVING AND DINING ROOM FOR A FAMILY
We were in the process of renovating our 1930s bathroom and wanted it updated with a clean, modern look that fit the historic style of a 1930s home. Nicole worked with us to re-design the space. Nicole was thorough, very responsive and took our vague ideas and turned it into an amazing bathroom. We were impressed with Nicole’s excellent ideas, great design sense and her ability to find us the appropriate products that fit the look we wanted and our budget. We highly recommend Nicole for anyone considering a re-design of their home.

Thank you again for the unbelievable job you did to make our wedding weekend such a joy and beautiful event. I can’t imagine what it would have been like without you! I wish I could capture all of the amazing compliments that we heard about your work…but just believe me when I say – they were too numerous to count!
Heather B. A WEDDING IN RED, BLACK & IVORY
We loved working with Nicole in the staging of our apartment because of her willingness and ability to listen to our needs and adapt to our style and budget. Needless to say, she is highly professional, enthusiastic about her job and has an incredible sense of humor. The final outcome of her work was ultimately better than anything we could have expected. Our home sold in less than 2 weeks at the price we wanted, We are sincerely impressed by Nicole’s talent and recommend her unhesitatingly. We are certain that she will provide the same high level of service and commitment she performed with us.
Maru V. A LOFT STAGED TO SELL
Nicole Lanteri is a person with a rare combination of qualities: incredibly detail-oriented, yet still laid-back and low-key. Her gentle persistence left me no room to continue to make excuses for the clutter in our home. Her design and organization solutions for my home office and our family room were and are so practical and attractive that they are virtually unchanged from the day she completed installation. Moreover, she stuck to the budget we set, finding affordable options for lighting and storage that look just as good as items that cost ten times as much. If I could hire Nicole to run and beautify my entire life, I would.
Amy N. A FREELANCE WRITER'S HOME OFFICE
Nicole has the vision and foresight to design a space that can appeal to a wide range of buyers. She had amazing design ideas and the implementation was just perfect. My condo sold the first day it went to market and I am 100% sure it was because of Nicole’s brilliant, classic yet modern and minimalist yet cozy take on staging it. I highly recommend anybody looking to sell a property consult with Nicole.
Erin P. A COLORFUL HOME GOES NEUTRAL FOR RESALE
I highly recommend Nicole. She is professional, genuine, extremely talented and a real pleasure to work with. And her taste is impeccable. Moreover, Nicole was willing to work with our budget, and still managed to translate our (very basic) ideas into beautiful save the date cards, wedding invitations, thank you cards, escort cards and ceremony programs. I look forward to working with her again.
