Who I Am
Meet your decorator!
Hi, I’m Nikki. I started Xtraordinary by Design in 2006 to help people decorate their homes & offices on a budget. Since then I have seen a transformation in client’s lifestyles & mindset about their homes & the items they love. I began to see that more than buying “stuff” and following trends, most people really want to have what they love & love what they have. Because of this, I shifted my focus – my goal with Xtraordinary by Design is to bring great style home by consciously decorating for the people and for the planet. With a focus on Green Design, I work with you to help you reuse and up-cycle what you truly love, recycle what you don’t, and find the right pieces to polish off your space in your own unique style.
