Maison Blonde studio

Interior Design & Landscape Design

Maison Blonde is a Full Service Interior + Landscape Design Studio that specializes in new builds, large scale renovations and high-end custom interiors. We believe that your home should be your favourite place; a reflection of you and a space where you feel the most relaxed. 

We'd love to talk and learn more about how we can work together to create your dream home or project! While we are based in Ottawa, Canada, our work takes us all over and we are more than happy to travel the globe.

Maison Blonde is currently taking on full-service design projects. This includes the following types of projects; 

  • Home Renovations
  • Furniture & Decor Projects
  • New-build design; from floor plans to finishes and furniture & decor selection
  • Property or backyard landscape makeovers
  • Kitchen renovations with a minimum budget of $75,000

It is best to reach out as early as possible to give ample time for planning your project!

Most renovation projects require 3-6 months before construction starts to set the design direction, develop the design, and assemble a detailed construction documentation package to hand off to your builder/contractor. New builds can require between 6-9 months of design before construction commences.



Nicole de Vries is the Creative Director + Principal Designer of Maison Blonde Inc., and takes on each project with an excitement and passion for soulful design, while ensuring a collaborative experience between our process and our clients' dreams. 

She believes in using natural materials and her style is elegant, subtle and timeless. She clicks best with clients who are authentic and trusting - we've found that this type of client results in the best design! 

Nicole is ARIDO registered and NCIDQ certified.

"Nicole has transformed our entire home, and the finished product is incredibly beautiful.

She helped us choose all the builder finishes as it was being built, and created a furniture and room plan with additional custom millwork. The end result is a cohesive and custom-feeling home. We receive compliments from everyone who stops by, and all we can do is point them to Nicole.

Her instincts, creativity, industry network, and experience were on display throughout our experience. She knew the best trades to work with for specific projects, and the best vendors for pieces that fit perfectly.

We also loved how collaborative she was in the process. She was very responsive and always seeking to ensure our style preferences were accommodated, providing us with options across different price points to keep within our budget.

The end result has been amazing and we would recommend her and her talented team to anyone. They are working on our backyard next, and the mock-ups are already beautiful, creative, and functional. If you are considering design help, do not hesitate to contact her!"
