Why I do What I do
My parents are from the Netherlands. This heritage is part of who I am. My mother taught me to appreciate good quality and good design.
My mother was very “hands-on”. When I was young I remember her tiling our bathroom, painting our bedrooms whatever colour we wanted (including my brother’s black ceiling), wallpapering and sewing everything from dresses for my sisters and I, to outdoor patio furniture.
Her “can-do” attitude and willingness to help others in need has always inspired me to be creative and to volunteer in my community.
I started NikkiDesigns in 2005 because I saw that there was a need for hand-crafted bedding, made from pre-shrunk, organic fabrics. I wanted to use my talents as a seamstress and a designer in a way that would help people be really comfortable in their homes.
I believe our homes should be a reflection of who we are, and that they should be stylish, cozy and welcoming. I love to help others acheive this feeling and style in their homes, whether it is with my products, or my design assistance.
I look forward to helping you create a home that you love and to getting to know you. If you are new to Vancouver Island, I can also introduce you to all this amazing island has to offer.
