About Us

Sean + Nicoli met in the Fall of 2014, and bonded over their mutual desire to create, design + inspire others to do the same. In the summer of 2016 we collaborated to design the seating for Mauve Salon + Spa. This collaboration eventually developed into an IDEA. We wanted to create a design firm that focused on creating opportunities for local artists, and designing one of kind interior spaces that are truly unique to Colorado. 

IDEA Design + Art was created to bring together the Denver creative community, to collaborate and to put our city's art culture on the map.  Sean + Nicoli are both inspired by architecture, design, fashion, art installations, nature and beautiful interior design.  We believe that everyone is an artist, and we are here to help inspire you to live a more beautiful life.

I’m so inspired by the collaboration energy that has entered into my life! It’s true, when you look for creativity, inspiration and new ways of doing things, it starts to enter into your reality and you experience more of it.
