Meet Nicole Tamarin
“I really enjoy solving a problem, whether that be making something function better or taking an idea and making it come to life. I love to make things more functional and beautiful,”
Hailing from Worcester, Mass., Nicole’s biggest source of inspiration is her daughter, Sienna, who is 12. Nicole loves to come up with things to keep Sienna entertained. “Watching the way she interacts with the world as a mom and an artist makes me think how to make things better for her.”
An organizing geek, Nicole’s favorite indulgences are office supplies and storage containers. What does she do in her spare time? “I love working on my house or on the homes of others, especially designing projects that will solve a problem like better storage or organization,” she says.
Nicole’s husband, Joe, is a carpenter, musician and artist. Their daughter inherited his musical and artistic abilities along with his quirky sense of humor. “I am forever being left out of their long, drawn-out nonsensical conversations!” Nicole says.
This talented designer’s passions are her family and her work. “Success has very little to do with possessions or money and more to do with my ability to support myself and my family with my creative talents rather than my analytical ones,” she says.
