Nicole uses her management background and problem solving skills to not only keep on top of design trends and technology, but to build client and vendor relationships.

Danielle is a native of the Buffalo area. The daughter of a custom home builder, she grew up immersed in the business of fine details and quality construction. From an early age she possessed a passion for, and interest in art and design. Danielle has seen many homes progress from the paper planning phases on to completion. Danielle started her training at Columbus College of Art and Design and returned to Western New York to complete her education and receive her BFA from Villa Maria College.
Danielle’s design aesthetic layers modern and traditional elements in a timeless manner. Her dedication and love for design is evident in each project she is privileged to take on.
