Design is to Be Enjoyed, Savored and Celebrated. It’s A Family Affair and They Do it Right | 454 | Nicole Forina

I’m Josh Cooperman and this is Convo By Design. This week, we are heading to New Jersey to speak with Nicole Fornia of Nicole Forina Home.  Her honest and fully exposed approach to her design business is as unique as her work, and we’re talking about both.

While Convo By Design has changed a lot over the past 10 years, some things remain the same as the day I started this show. I want to introduce you to amazing creatives in interior/ exterior design and architecture. I love this business and I love what they do. Nicole Forina Home is a family run business. Her husband, Mike, with his ME degree (he’s a mechanical engineer) worked in civil engineering as well as teaching upper level high school math, is able to project manage as well as offer a very unique skillset to the design firm. This was a fun chat and I hope you enjoy it. You’ll hear it, right after this.

Thank you Nicole, loved our chat. Thank you to my partners and sponsors ThermaSol, Moya Living and Design Hardware for your continued support of both Convo By Design and the design community. A side note, the sponsors and partners you hear on CXD are more than companies with a product, each of the partners I work with have been fully vetted, they are owned and operated by people who love what they do and have dedicated themselves to serving the design community and customers by providing the best products and services available. If you would like to know why I am so proud to have them part of Convo By Design, email me at convobydesign@outlook or on IG @convoxdesign with an “X”. I would be happy to share my experience. Please make sure you are also reaching out with show ideas and guests you would like to hear on the podcast. I love hearing them and it has given me the chance to meet new creatives not already on my radar, so thank you. Thank you for taking the time to listening to the show and share in the experience, until next week, be well and take today first. – CXD

The Showroom featuring Gail Davis | 307 | From Fashion to Interiors with a Focus on Balance & Perspective

Gail Davis is an extraordinary designer. She is equally talented a conversationalist. I don’t say this lightly. If you know me, if you have been listening to the podcast for any amount of time you know that I take great pride in bringing you conversations that inspire you, challenge my guests, and provide takeaways that showcase the stories behind sublime design. That being said, Gail is sharp as a tack, she and I share a low tolerance for BS and a fondness for a good bourbon. Sometimes, they go very well together. While no bourbon was consumed during this conversation, it might be in the future, we’ll see.

This is another episode of The Showroom, a partnership between Convo By Design and Walker Zanger featuring conversations with extraordinary design talent and a deep dive into their work and the business of design. Enjoy this conversation with designer, Gail Davis. A publisher’s note, due to tech issues, this conversation was abruptly and shockingly ended due to a Zoom collapse. Whatever, it happens. Fortunately, it was at the end… Honestly, you might not even notice it.

Thanks for downloading, streaming, and subscribing to this episode of the podcast. If you haven’t subscribed yet, please do so you don’t miss a single episode of the show, like this one with designer Gail Davis.

Thank you Gail, loved this. Thank you Walker Zanger for your extraordinary partnership and thank you for listening. My goal is to bring you the stories behind sublime design wherever that may be. To share those stories, bring you business strategies to help you build a stronger firm and inspire you to do your most creative work.
