Meet Nicole Mendez

Hi, I’m Nicole Mendez - Founder of Mendez Manor Interior Design. I hold a B.F.A in interior design and over 15 years experience serving residential design clients. I have specialized in a variety of residential design areas including custom window coverings, custom upholstery, antique sourcing and designing Airbnb vacation rental units.

My personal style is a laid back “California Casual” look that mixes modern and vintage finds. I am inspired by nature, travel, and all things that bring a time-honored sense of nostalgia. I live in Southern California with my husband and two children, and little-by-little, we are updating our own early 90’s tract home.

I enjoy helping my clients create comfortable living spaces, with character and depth, that reflect their own personal style…and for my clients who aren’t sure what their own personal style is, I enjoy helping them find it! My team and I value professionalism, dependability, and mindfulness during all stages of the design process. We would love to work with you!
