Citing nature as her inspiration, San Francisco based Nicole Hollis exhibits cool neutrals with a minimalist set up on her Instagram page. She defines the feel of a home as the most important aspect of her modern aesthetic: ‘nodern in this day and age is a state of mind. It’s about a way of living for our clients and how they interact with the world.’
