Nicole Lanteri is an interior decorator creating fresh, lively and tailored-but-lived-in spaces for today’s modern family. Self-taught, Nicole specializes in decorating for clients with busy lives who want to make smart and stylish choices for their homes. She mixes colors, styles and sources to create unique interiors that reflect each client’s particular lifestyle and personality.
Nicole grew up in South Florida and has lasting impressions of the awesome grasscloth-papered walls, paisley sofas and Marimekko bedding that filled her childhood home.
Nicole studied Latin American Studies and Political Science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. While at UNC, Nicole spent her free time working in a local frame shop and enjoyed every minute of it. Her study abroad in Sevilla, Spain and travels to London, Paris and Barcelona that semester started the influence that travel continues to have on her aesthetic and way of life. She continued her studies at the University of Virginia and earned a law degree in 2004, moving to New York City after graduation and practicing law at Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP until she decided to start her new career as an interior decorator in July 2009.
Nicole and her husband live in a loft apartment in Arlington, VA. They love their home and don’t ever plan to move.
