For many years, Nicky Summer and her team have been renovating and interior designing upscale homes around the world – creating stylish living environments on behalf of her own private clients and that of Sothebys International Realty, Harrods Estates, Savills, the Grosvenor Estate, Knight Frank and Hamptons International. Clients include notable names from broadcasting, Hollywood, finance and society; the projects have appeared on the front cover and inside story of the San Francisco Chronicle, the FT’s ‘How To Spend It’, TATLER, London Property News, You Magazine and many other editorials…

Nicky and her international team purchase, renovate and sell properties in the Knightsbridge/South Kensington/Chelsea (SW3/SW7) area of central London and the St Germain des Pres (6th arrondissement) area of Paris, located between the boundary of Jardin du Luxembourg and La Seine. Nicky herself is an authority on both these fashionable areas, particularly SW London, having lived all her adult life in South Kensington, London, and spending almost all of the past two and half years living in the 6th arrondissement of Paris while filming and photographing on both sides of the camera. Both areas in these two cities are known for their beautiful residences, gardens, cultural centres, shopping, dining, cafes, gyms, boutique hotels, interior design stores, prestigious schools and universities as well as being easy to negotiate by car, train, underground, bike and on foot.
