Have you always wanted your home or business to look like your

Instagram feed, Pinterest boards, or your favorite Design Blog or Magazine? 

Well, lust no longer - your Heroine has arrived!

My name is Nicole Montagano and I am Halcyon Heroine.

I provide a variety of Creative Services for the Home, Retail Spaces, and Events. 

With over 13 years of professional experience, a keen eye for detail, and a passion for crafting beautiful, harmonious spaces, I can help you make your environment

feel & look like a dream!

Specializing in Modern Rustic/Farmhouse, Hygge, Midcentury Modern, Bohemian, Coastal/Beach, & Urban Vintage design, my spaces combine vintage treasures with modern elements and are always inspired by nature. I create balance and harmony in each space I design and love to add a touch of light-hearted whimsy to my work. With my range of services, I can work with any budget and any project locally as well as remotely - and if your project demands it, I can even travel to you!

I can't wait to save the day for your home!
