Nicholas Konzal, an innovative Milwaukee interior designer thriving in the Milwaukee, Chicago and St. Petersburg, Florida interior design communities, has built a reputable career modernizing out-of-date Lake House and Ocean Front decor. His career began in 2008 with a town-home in Mequon, Wisconsin. At that time his projects were based solely on referral. Since then he has climbed the industry’s ranks, becoming one of the “Who’s Who” amongst Interior Designers. Over the past six years Nicholas’ career has expanded nationwide, and in 2014 he embarked on one of his most extravagant projects yet, a Historic Renovation in St. Petersburg, Florida. The house, on Florida’s west coast, was designed and lived in by famed architect Henry Dupont. Established in 1926, the residence functioned as Dupont’s landing pad during the multi-year construction of the famous Don Ce-Sar Hotel, otherwise known as the “Pink Castle.” This long term restoration will bring the home from its former glory // revamping the structure to accommodate a modern way of living.
Nicholas, named one of Milwaukee’s Best Interior Designers, has a knack for helping home owners through the sometimes stressful renovation process. Together they visualize a plan to incorporate the original aesthetic while giving the space a sophisticated, fresh, and modern quality. The entire space is custom built and tailored to the client’s personality. Each room has the ability to flow as a work of art. The colors may reflect the tone of light out the window, or possibly the clean lines of the furniture and texture of the accent pieces. The space becomes an experience in itself. As a small business owner himself, the redecoration of select spaces are highlighted with custom window treatments, furniture, lighting, and artwork by local artists and artisans.
Passionate about giving back, Nicholas currently sits on The Wisconsin Board of Design Review for the Breast Cancer Show House, which has included his work for the past 5 years. Many of these design projects have been repeatedly published in M Magazine
In his free time he travels the country shopping for inspiration and new vendors. Or, you may just find him walking around the city with his three chihuahuas.
