With more than 20 years of experience based largely in the Detroit area, Nicolette Martin has built her company, Nicolette Design Group, into a trusted and valuable resource for clients, other designers, and builders. Martin founded her business on a passion for building interiors and a talent for interpreting her clients’ desires. Over time, her innate interest in fine cabinetry, furniture-making, and millwork led to an expanded expertise in all aspects of interior architecture. Nicolette Design Group has become a licensed builder, collaborating with other trade specialists in the area, with Martin in the role of lead project manager for interior remodels and new builds.
Martin has taken a unique approach with Nicolette Design Group. She displays her work in an open-to-the public studio located in downtown Northville, which also serves as a central hub where designers, builders, tradespeople, and architects meet and collaborate. Martin specializes in customizing to the spaces within which she works, both aesthetically and dimensionally. She personally designs, sends for fabrication, and oversees installation of luxury cabinetry, furniture, and interior layouts for her clients. Her team’s projects vary from updating home furnishings to kitchen or bath remodels, and she works side-by-side with other builders to provide enhanced design for the construction of a new home.
Collaboration with other small local businesses is an important element of Nicolette Design Group’s philosophy. As Martin says, “Our craft includes, but goes beyond, interior furnishings. We aim to transform our clients’ homes into spaces they can be proud of, and spaces that enhance their lives.”
