Welcome to Maison Blonde! I'm Nicole and along with Brad, we are a husband and wife design team living and working in Ottawa, Canada. Together we run a boutique interior and garden design studio and curate beautiful, thoughtful, and approachable decor for your home.
We began renovating together in 2019 when we purchased our first home, a dated 60's bungalow desperately in need of a refresh (you can see some before photos here). Brad, a landscape designer, was working for a large construction company and myself, a Registered Interior Designer recently out on my own after years of working in the industry. Despite working full time and starting a new business, we immersed ourselves in the after hours work involved in creating our first transformation.
Life is full, so in an attempt to remember the process and moments among the never ending to-do lists, Maison Blonde became a way to document the journey of the highs, the mistakes, the results, what we are doing, and how we are doing it.
This evolved into taking on many design clients and Maison Blonde became not only a documentation of our home reno, but also a full service Interior and Landscape Design business and, shortly after, a decor shop.
We would love nothing more than for you to join us in our experience with everything home, garden, decor and more! We hope Maison Blonde leaves you feeling bright and inspired to take on your own projects ☼
