We had the good fortune of connecting with Nicole Perrault and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Nicole, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
HOD operates with a strong team approach. It is how we manage our projects and how we interface with our clients. I believe that every designer comes with unique talents and perspectives. The HOD team is encouraged to bounce ideas off each other and offer up their opinions along the way. I believe this team approach benefits the client. We encourage our clients to be involved in the design process and we strive to offer options based on feedback to exceed their expectations. It is important that our clients feel they are being heard and that HOD is a strong partner to help them achieve their ideal design project. We pride ourselves in maintaining excellent relationships with vendors and all business partners. The success of HOD is due to the strong and talented team of designers and back office staff. To this end, I never wanted to name the company after myself because this isn’t about me. It is about strong team work to get the job done for our awesome clients.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
HOD is a full service interior design firm providing comprehensive services that begin with getting to know one another, conceptual design, mood boards, AutoCAD, material & fabric selections, spec-books to being on site all the way to the install day. Haus of Design is a creative team combined with decades of experience in the design industry while still staying up to date with the most cutting edge technology. We pride ourselves on organization, backing into time lines and doing what we say we are going to do. We know construction is not always everyone’s favorite thing to deal with, so we love collaborating with our clients and making it an enjoyable experience for everyone. We are dedicated to our clients and creating a space that works for them or their target market. We want your space to be curated yet functional. We have no limits on what we are willing to create with you, whether it be a small one room remodel or a 30,000 square foot commercial space, we promise with our knowledge and expertise we can and will make your vision come to life.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I would take them around Newport Beach and the surrounding coastal area like Laguna Beach. I enjoy the Surf and Sand Hotel in Laguna Beach and my favorite restaurant is Selanne Steak and Tavern in Laguna.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
My team, our vendors, our clients and of course my family!
