Behind The Blog

Thanks for stopping by! I’m Nicki; interior designer, editorial photographer & stylist, and passionate home cook. I’m also a mum of 2 (three if you count our fur baby), and in mid 2021 relocated with my little family to Wanaka, New Zealand from the Southern Highlands in Australia after our decade long dream of living in New Zealand.

In 2011, I started Cottonwood Interiors (you can see a small selection of my interior design work here) after 15 years in the property, construction and interior design industry (later studying Interior Design in Sydney). In 2016, I rebranded to Cottonwood and Co to include my other passions – editorial photography and styling – but with a broader focus on producing high quality, stylised content for magazines, brands and businesses.

My work has been featured in publications like Home Beautiful, House & Garden, Country Style, Elle Decor, and I’ve worked with and produced content for brands like Pottery Barn, Williams Sonoma and Bacardi-Martini. You can see some of my editorial photography work here.

I love to collaborate, so if you’re interested in our interior design, styling & photography services, or if you just have an idea you’d like to propose, drop me a line here. I’d love to hear from you.
