Our History

As Creative Director of Intellexa, an Audio Visual and Home Automation company, I found that I was spending more and more time not only designing the technical aspect of home cinemas but also advising clients on their interior schemes and space planning.  From a very young age, I was always fascinated by colour, texture and style so moving into Interior Design was a natural progression for me.

In early 2005, Amy Nicholas Interior Design, an amalgamation of my name and my now husband’s name, was created.  Our ethos from the very beginning has been to offer clients an unprecedented design service with inspirational interiors which are seductive in style and layered with knowledge and originality to create the most perfect and individual of spaces.   We regularly dedicate time to research and source new and innovative products, finishes, materials and brands to enable us to offer our clients innovation and the unusual in creativity and design.

From our studio, in addition to our full concept design service, we also offer an extensive and well curated range of fabrics, wallpapers, furniture, lighting and beautiful accessories sourced throughout the World.  We only work with quality and ethical brands and sustainability is at the forefront of our practice.

In 2018, I also started a fabric and wallpaper design company, Tradescant and Son.   I was ready for a new challenge and wanted to diverse my skillset into designing  beautiful and luxurious fabrics.  View our lookbook.

At Amy Nicholas, our prime motivation is to provide innovative yet timeless interiors and we achieve this with our highly skilled and dedicated team of professionals who offer a premium service to our clients.

In my spare time I am a wife to Nick and mummy to 5 amazing children…Harriet (5), Twins Freddy and Thomas (3) and Sophie (1)…life is extremely crazy!!!  I am also mother to 3 dogs; Labradors Bobby and Wellington and my adorable sausage, Sid plus a very cheeky cat called Ivy. We have far too many chickens to mention including 3 very naughty Brahma cockerels and my husband is on the look out for a trio of Peacocks!  When will the madness end!!

I have a deep rooted passion for Art, mainly impressionism and abstract, colour, architecture, music, reading, fashion, pattern and travel.

In my work I strive for innovation and perfection and I take a lot of my inspiration and aspirations from my favourite designers and artists.  These masters include the exceptional Dutch designer, Marcel Wanders, known to many as the Lady Gaga of the design world, the renowned Ralph Lauren for his exquisite, timeless designs in both fashion and for the home and lastly Picasso for his surrealism with the exploratory use of bold colour and his mythical interpretation of everyday objects.  I carry their inspiration with me and portray it through my interior design.
