Nicole Curtis

A self-taught home rehabber and designer with a passion for saving old houses, Nicole is also a mom and a master of salvage picking. 

All About Nicole

About the show

Nicole Curtis is saving historic houses, one broken-down fireplace at a time. Working in Detroit and Minneapolis, Nicole takes ramshackle homes from the wrecking ball to their original stunning glory. Whether it’s managing her rugged crew or wrangling city officials, this single mom wields her hammer with skill and returns condemned properties to their place as the pride of the neighborhood.
Season 7, Episode 2

Pool Room Refresher

For Nicole's next project, it's gonna be sink or swim! The indoor pool that Nicole's grandfather built by hand is getting a much-needed refresher. First up, the safety and mechanical systems of the pool need to be overhauled to meet modern standards. The beautiful cedar ceiling and aquamarine walls are original so there is no way Nicole will change those, they just need a good wash and some new paint. In the biggest design challenge of the entire project, Nicole boldly replaces the original doors, which had been ruined with age, with giant glass garage doors to let in light and views of the surrounding countryside.

All About Family

Nicole Curtis tackles the family room of her family's home! Off the pool lies a dated family room, covered in wood paneling and boasting a large mechanical room for the pool equipment. Nicole sees opportunity for a beautiful bathroom, and an updated, retro family room that pays homage to her Grandfather's original plans. It wouldn't be Nicole if some gorgeous wood, and not-so-gorgeous hunting themed paneling, is lovingly re purposed to update the room into a modern yet rustic haven.

Mid-Century Bathroom Remade

Nicole Curtis saves the original Mid-Century bathroom in her Grandparents' house in her classic style; by preserving critical elements while updating tired design choices. The original blue tile, hand laid by her Grandfather, is saved, but working with the original tile color poses some challenges for Nicole. Rather than hiding from the blue tile Nicole embraces it wholeheartedly and bases her entire design around it. Finally Nicole removes a tacky 80s seashell vanity and replaces it with a much needed double-sink.

Apartment Refresh

Nicole's grandparents house sits on a sprawling 5 acre parcel.

Taking a break from the main house renovation, Nicole tackles the apartment with a series of fun, chic changes that don't cost a fortune: fresh paint, refinished hardwood floors and wallpaper all contribute to bringing this neglected space up to date.

Fixing the original fireplace and it's plaster moulding presents a relatively easy, if messy, challenge. Sourcing and replacing the iconic chandelier in the dining room with an exact match may prove an impossible task.

One Extraordinary Exterior

As the renovation of Nicole's grandparents midcentury home winds down there is just one major obstacle left: the exterior. Nicole's grandparents literally built the home block by block so nothing short of perfection will do for the curb appeal of this property. Nicole adds gutters, a new driveway and entirely does the house in stucco, just like the original. To complete this magnificent transformation Nicole restores the original brick front porch and tops everything off with some tasteful, but stunning landscaping.
