Founder & Principal Designer
Hello, my name is Nikki and I am the proud CEO and Principal Designer of NKDG. The truth is I was once considered an ugly duckling. No amount of care, concern, and love from my family made me feel better about myself outside my home. School was such a dreadful place and I did not fit in. I needed a place to call my own Sacred Space where I could feel nurtured, loved, happy and safe.
A few years ago, I made this deep and personal connection to why I am so passionate about interior design. I believe in the sanctity of homes filled with love and care that also have nurturing environments. Because no matter what ugliness the world throws at you, everyone deserves a place of respite. A sanctuary. A Sacred Space.
I now know that the peace I felt even during my awkward stage was fueled by the knowledge that things and people can be transformed. Thus the transformation from ugly and discarded to beautiful and cherished is something that will forever bring me joy.
I always say yes to participate in a transformation.
I always advocate for healing and wholeness.
I always root for the underdog.
I am an interior designer, a wife, a mother to four wonderful sons, and an advocate for
living a life filled with luxury, excitement, and deep joy every day.
With over 17 years of interior design experience and a passion for creating spaces that support and improve your overall well-being, I will design a home that makes you feel like a better you. My education formally began at the Art Institute in Albuquerque, NM, but I’ve been crafting and improving spaces for as far back as I can remember.
My one-of-a-kind design method focuses on designing unique spaces that are beautiful, functional and restorative - I like to call them Sacred Spaces. As a professional member of ASID, IIDA, a certified interior designer and a mentor to others, I am not only passionate about designing, I am dedicated to the field of interior design...If you’re looking to create a space that you fall madly in love with, I would love to learn more about you and your project!
