Growing up, I could never figure out my "style." However, my passion for home decor was constant, until it wasn't. I began to notice that when I was designing my space, I was never satisfied. I constantly changed things around, which resulted in re-doing the entire concept. Self realization hit me straight in the face. I realized that I don't have a particular style. I have many combined into one single person. Me.
I'm Nicole Charette.
And then there was Cozy Meets Classy. My way of proving to you that you can combine multiple design concepts into one aesthetic. How? By being you! Personality shines through a design concept. It shines the moment you walk in the door after a long day and you can sit back and say, "Wow, this is exactly where I want to be. Home." It's because home isn't a place, it's a feeling.
Some of us are forced to work with what we have in order to create the space we want, while others may be starting with a blank slate. Either way, the beauty is in the details and the small details create the bigger picture. I want to show you that interior design is more than just "decorating." I want the takeaway to be personal.
We all have a story, here's mine.
Southern New Hampshire
I graduated from Southern New Hampshire University with a Bachelor of Science, Business Studies degree. I have been working at a digital marketing company full-time since 2016, where I started as an Admin and later took on the role of an Executive Assistant. Upon graduation, I explored the world of interior design.
Cozy Meets Classy
I worked for a virtual design company for a short period of time, helping several clients complete their space. I felt confident that I could take my skills to another level, so at the beginning of 2020 I branded Cozy Meets Classy.
My first client was currently in the process of purchasing her home. I was intrigued following her home buying process, so I enrolled in Freedom Trail Realty School and put in 40 hours of course work to educate myself of all things home. While my end goal was not necessarily being an agent but gaining more knowledge, I ended up taking my exam and passed. Deciding to put my skills to use, I joined a local brokerage and now have the opportunity to provide the best of both worlds.
