"...I would freely and completely entrust her with the design of my own home. Nicole is, as are her spaces, truly one of a kind."


"My husband and I decided to buy and live in my childhood home with a goal to both honor it’s history and reinvent the home to express us uniquely as a couple. We needed a special interior designer with commitment, enthusiasm, and vision to pull this off. We found that in Nicole. Nicole took the time to really listen and learn about our family and what we wanted to preserve in the home. She also guided us and collaborated with us providing beautiful new choices specifically selected with our personalities and wishes in mind. We could not have achieved this personal reflection of our aesthetics without her. Nicole’s incredible sense of organization, attention to detail, professionalism, and continual personal involvement has made our new home a true mid century jewel box. She also made the process memorable and fun. We are so grateful for her special talent of creating for us not just a beautifully detailed environment, but a home we will love for many years."

"I hired Federico Design to refurnish my condo and I was extremely pleased with the results. Ms. Martinez was responsive and knowledgeable, and she took the time to really gain an understanding of my aesthetic and preferences. She made herself available at night and on weekends in order to accommodate my schedule. And she presented me with creative options that vastly exceeded anything I could have generated on my own. Ms. Martinez is truly an expert in her field and a joy to work with--her smile and great attitude are infectious. I will work with Federico Design again when the opportunity presents itself."
