Designing Life: Interior Design by Bridget Nisivoccia Design


 “As a boutique interior design firm, our design philosophy is to work with clients and their personal aesthetics to create a final look that optimizes the interior and exterior space, commercial or residential.”

In order to live what is perceived as a “luxury lifestyle,” there are numerous aspects that must all be tended to. From one’s bespoke suiting to the custom G250-and everything in between-when striving for the haute life, no detail can be overlooked. All of these individual modules must come together to achieve a standard of living that is perceived as, and genuinely is, effortlessly luxe.

Though every factor is integral when it comes to the good life, it is indubitable that one’s immediate environment-their home-is paramount to all. As such, interior design firms are in high demand, though there are only a select few that can transform any space, whether it’s a summer home in the Hamptons, a private yacht, or a ski chalet in Chamonix, into a haven of refined elegance. Bridget Nisivoccia Design, Inc. is one of those firms.

Like anything good in life, Nisivoccia’s business evolved naturally, almost unintentionally. From the beginning, she never sought out projects but rather was the one under pursuit. After graduating from Manhattan College, Nisivoccia pursued her passion for interior design at The New School, and through her education, she developed lasting relationships with many of the industry’s most influential individuals. “It was less than glamorous,” explains Nisivoccia. “I started doing small jobs here and there, and the business just sort of grew from there.” Don’t let her modesty deceive you; her business did not “sort of grow,” it boomed. When the New York real estate market skyrocketed in the early ’90s, Coldwell Banker listed Nisivoccia as its number one recommendation for interior designers. With the venerable real estate firm’s extensive listings of $10 million-plus homes, Nisivoccia’s business began to skyrocket as well.

From there, Nisivoccia gained lifelong clients, many of which were and are CEOs of Fortune 500 companies. Since the ’90s, her namesake luxury boutique interior design firm has established offices in four major hubs- Los Angeles, New York, the Hamptons, and Miami-and her work has become renowned throughout the most exclusive communities.

Part of the design firm’s success can be attributed to its versatility. Each project is taken on with the same set of ideals in mind, the most important being the client’s vision. “As a boutique interior design firm, our design philosophy is to work with clients and their personal aesthetics to create a final look that optimizes the interior and exterior space, commercial or residential,” explains Nisivoccia. “When I begin a project, I listen to what the client wants their space to incorporate. That’s what is most important. Then I can begin my job, which is to take their visions and make them a beautiful, elegant, and functional reality.”

Each of Nisivoccia’s projects use selections of the finest furnishings and textiles from all over the world, and each design accent is incorporated to highlight the personality of the client. Formal or informal, each room exudes a sophisticated elegance unseen in other interior design portfolios. All of her creative work appears effortlessly chic and completely uncontrived. “People are so busy these days and there is so much stress in seemingly every aspect of life,” says Nisivoccia. “My job is to ensure that my clients homes are sanctuaries filled with their favorite things, a place that invites them to relax and recharge, forgetting about the mayhem of the outside world.”

And her work does just that, which has led to an A-list following. She currently is designing for Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Mark Clayton, whose  mother JacQuetta Clayton is President of the M.O.M SQUAD organization,  and news personality Chris Wragge. Nisivoccia also recently was recruited to design the interiors of Cristal Beach Resort, a compound of 80 luxury condos located on the North Coast of the Dominican Republic in the picturesque town of Cabrera.

With a full calendar of projects for 2009, it is certain that Bridget Nisivoccia Design will continue to grow, prosper, and redesign the way life should be.
