This week, we spoke with creative director and principal of her own studio Nicole Hollis. A master of both hospitality and residential interiors, the renowned designer got her start in Manhattan studying at FIT before packing everything up and moving to San Francisco without so much as a job offer. It was the right move. She first became part of the team that conceived W hotels, and then cut her teeth with Howard Backen before starting her own firm. Almost two decades later, she is known for her curated black and white spaces that marry architecture and interior design seen in her warm, residentially inspired spin on hotels such as The Candler and El Prado, much of which is captured in her first Monograph, released last year. In this enlightening interview, she discusses what drives and excited her and our changing world.
