Becky Nichols, NCIDQ, LEED AP, has over 10 years of experience in the design industry. She has worked on a variety of project types including retail prototype design and nationwide fit-outs, higher education and high school facilities, and commercial office spaces. She was awarded for her role as lead designer for the DSN Community Center in Ocean Township, New Jersey.
With the mind of a designer and the spirit of an entrepreneur, Becky most enjoys being a collaborative partner with her clients to help them achieve their mission. She works to first help uncover and define their identity, then to express it genuinely through their branding and environments. She believes in the power of the spatial canvas for storytelling and shaping experience.
Becky’s passion for architecture and interiors began in early childhood. As a young girl she worked side-by-side with her grandfather to carefully craft a dollhouse, down to individually cutting each roof shingle. She helped her dad refinish furniture for a family side business and remodel their home. A serendipitous bout with mono at age 14 helped her discover the interior design profession. The daytime decorator shows she watched while confined to the couch introduced her to a career option she hadn’t known existed. The passion she always had for color, texture and furniture design has evolved to encompass a more global way of thinking about interior spaces.
Becky graduated summa cum laude with an award for Excellence in Interior Design from Paier College of Art, where she continues to serve as a visiting critic. She has also taught continuing education courses at Manchester Community College and been an ACE mentor, helping high school students learn more about the architecture and design industry.
