Kendra Nicholas Nash, PRINCIPAL DESIGNER
Born and raised in Atherton, Kendra Nicholas Nash started Nash Design Group after gaining experience in the Silicon Valley real estate market and finding a passion for interior design. She is a graduate of the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in San Francisco and has a bachelor’s degree from UCLA.
In addition to traveling, food, and fashion, Kendra is also inspired by her everyday surroundings: her husband’s tattoos, hydrangeas from her garden, a vintage fabric found at the flea market. She calls her design aesthetic “clean, versatile, and organic, but always with some spunky surprises.” Her designs often incorporate repurposed family treasures or a client’s favorite piece, reworked into a new, cohesive design.
You will find Nash Design Group's work spread throughout the Peninsula, as the firm works closely with local architects and builders to design clients’ homes starting with the construction phase, and then continuing through furnishings and finishing touches. From expansive estates to charming bungalows, Kendra is keen to the unique details of each space and brings a personal sense of style to every home she designs. She has recruited a group of talented, creative personnel to bring the Nash Design Group vision to life and help each project run smoothly.
Lorri Hicks, Director of Design
Originally from Southern California, Lorri earned her BA in Art History at UCLA with additional Interior Design coursework at their extension. She continued her education in New York City, taking courses at NYU and SVA for design while working under an AD 100 Interior Design firm on projects in NYC, The Hamptons and Martha’s Vineyard. She continued her experience under an esteemed celebrity designer in Los Angeles, before ultimately landing in San Francisco and joining Nash Design Group. She attributes her love of many different styles of design, and obsession with detail, to her range of experience under designers who fancied the very traditional to the architectural modern. Lorri followed her love for interior design by working under design mentors in NYC, LA, and SF. She now has settled in San Francisco working on projects in both SF and Silicon Valley. Working in design over the past 15 years, she loves to interpret client’s personalities and comforts into their homes.
