We are in the process of self-building a 5000 sq foot home, Nicki has been invaluable to me during the entire process so far, she has helped us from everything from exterior colour/material selections, layout, kitchen cabinetry, finishes…and the list goes on. I feel so lucky to have found her, she is so professional, she really takes the time to get to know YOUR taste, likes and dislikes, your family, and what your needs are.
She is always in contact, and I’ve never had an issue reaching her for a question or issue I need to resolve. My husband and I have very different tastes and she is doing an amazing job seamlessly incorporating both of our styles so we will both be in love with our new home.
I’m really enjoying working with her, she has a very friendly, bubbly personality, she takes all the work out and just makes it fun!
Im looking forward to the finished product, I know it will be amazing.
I would reccommend her to anyone looking for a designer! I will definately be using her again when we complete our basement and landscaping in the future.

As a sales consultant for Sims Furniture, I have had the pleasure of working with Nicole Fox on numerous occasions. Her attention to detail, professionalism, and ability to work within various budgets, is unsurpassed. Nicole applies her energy and enthusiasm to every space she creates. She has an outstanding knowledge of motif, scale, pattern and colour, and uses these elements to construct a vision unique to every customer. Her spaces are harmonious, functional, beautiful and fresh.

From the first day I met Nicki she was very personable and enthusiastic. Working with a designer is a new experience for me but Nicki made it very easy and enjoyable. She took the time to find out about our family and made sure all the rooms worked for the kids as well. We shopped for furniture for three rooms and it was such a great feeling to be able to pick out everything in just a few hours. She had great ideas and made the whole shopping experience so much easier. During the months of renovations Nicki was so great about keeping in touch and was always sending me great ideas for all the final touches. It was wonderful having Nicki at our home the day the furniture arrived as she arranged every piece and added all her special touches to the rooms. We love our new space and we love how much it feels like us. Nicki was fantastic to work with and the whole experience exceeded our expectations.

Nicole at Novus Designs is awe inspiring, not only in design but in life. And that’s why we worked with her and her team. She takes the time to evaluate your life, family and situation and make recommendations from there. Her intuition and insight for what will actually work with your space is outstanding. In one afternoon she did all the shopping, set up and completed the finishing touches to our newly renovated basement. We love it!! It’s “us” and is a true reflection of exactly what we visioned, and what works for our family. I recommend Novus Designs to anyone I can!

This was a wonderful experience. Nikki’s ability to bring things together and add items that work with your space while coming in under budget was much appreciated.
Nikki came to my home and surveyed every space I wanted to decorate. She measured , took pictures and asked questions to get a sense of what I had in mind and what my expectations were. As we spoke we made a list of what we required. Then came the shopping day..for me this was a huge part of the process because when it comes to shopping I’d almost rather take a dentists drill to my own molar. I had a blast, she was able to pick up things that go together and I loved every piece, we pretty much finished shopping and arranging in one fell swoop. Everyone that sees my place comments how great it looks now.
Nikki also provided consults for some of the spaces we were not decorating so that on my next improvement phase I have a pretty good idea what I need.
Another aspect of this process that I liked was the fact that I used lots of items I had and did not want to part with. I also valued her ability to find items that were functional.
Overall she is very professional, resourceful and the whole experience was a positive one….like I said it was a blast!

Novus Designs is fantastic!! Nicole has an amazing ability to visualize the final outcome and was patient with me when explaining her process. I would highly recommend her as a designer— she has an ability to listen to what I want and need and translate it into exactly what I envisioned. Fresh and innovative ideas!!


Nicki Fox is an enthusiastic and very capable interior designer. I contracted her services to renovate and redecorate my 1998 condo and the transformation was stunning.

Nicki is one of those people who has the ability to make one feel immediately comfortable. For those of us who are not artistically inclined, it can be very intimidating to work with a designer. Nicki is so encouraging, one can’t help but feel positive. Nicki works with her clients and gets ‘a feel’ for them before going to work. The colour schemes which she chose were perfect. Nicki also used all our souvenirs which we have accumulated to make our home look like we had bought everything with a plan in mind (we didn’t). Nicki was able to pull all the genres and colours together to make our home look lovely. We have had so many compliments on how it looks and it definitely still looks like ‘us’.

I am grateful Nicki for all your work and expertise which you brought to our home. We are thrilled with the results.

As the Medican Construction Project Manager for the early phase of development for the Michener Hill Duplex Subdivision (38 units ) and Phase One Condo completion, I hired Novus Design to choose the color pallet for the duplex exterior finishes. We required four different but complementary color schemes for the subdivision, the schemes had to also complement the color pallet of the Medican Condo project and Extended Health care facility, across the street from the duplex subdivision.

The color scheme provided on the first presentation was perfect for the vision we had for the subdivision.

We also asked Novus Design to provide staging services for the Condo show suite that was being used for the future phase 2 and phase 3 condo projects as well as the interior finish selection for the duplex show home.

I was completely satisfied with the selections provided and I am confident that the service and selections provided will go a long way in securing future unit sales.

Nicole Fox of Novus Design, has an uncanny ability to understand what a client is looking for and is quick to take the lead in provide a complete package that far surpasses a clients expectations.

I would highly recommend Novus Design for any design service, whether it is a small residential job or a commercial project.

I hired Nicki in the spring of 2014 to help redecorate my living/dining area. I had inherited some wonderful furniture from my mother and wanted to make it fit in with my home. Nicki listened to my ideas and understood the concept that I was going for. She gave suggestions and did not try to influence my choices. Loved her ideas for fabric, draperies and paint! She even managed to save me money and the project came in under the amount that I had budgeted. Thanks, Nicki. It has been great working with you!

Nicole of Novus Designs has been an enormous blessing to my husband and myself. We have enlisted her help with several projects that we have worked on, and each time she has proved to be an invaluable addition to our team. She has incredible talent in selecting paint colours, taking into account important elements that I never would have considered, and she makes excellent recommendations on furniture arrangement and accent pieces. We are currently fine tuning the floor plan for our next home, and she has been incredibly helpful with that as well. I recommend Nicole to anyone I can, and will continually turn to her for advice and assistance with anything home related.

Novus Designs took away the stress moving from a country home too a city home. I was lost on how to do the interior and exterior of this fairly large house. Novus Designs took over both projects including all the interior renovations. Novus hand picked all new furniture and fabric as well. I always felt treated so kind and fair, at the same time very professional. Large Project 2012. Have had Novus come back for more projects. Recommended Novus Designs to families with no hesitation.

Karen Tiffin

This lady has an eye for beauty and I appreciate her attention to detail in every aspect of the process. She quickly identified my style and made suggestions and decor choices to match it. Whenever possible, she was able to repurpose and use pieces we already had. The follow up links and ideas are so helpful to transform the vision to reality. I know hiring her to help definitely saved me time and money as I will be able to finish it with items I love and that will work perfectly for our space.
