Serving as an art director for over ten years, Davis explains how interiors captured her heart. 

“In 2016 my then boyfriend, moved into my 1930's apartment, and I had to get really creative with storage space because of my tiny closet,” Davis said. “That’s what sparked it all.”

For those who visited the first installation of the Sweet Tooth Hotel, you may have noticed a change in our gift shoppe. This time around, what was then our gift shoppe is now our Big Dipper Bakery and it’s doubled in size! To suit the 1950s retro-futurism space theme, Davis made sure to do her research. 

 “Here I poured over vintage grocery store advertisements and packaging to get a sense for the color palette and feeling,” Davis stated. “I knew I wanted to infuse some nostalgia, hence the marmoleum floors and retro pastry case, but I wanted to maintain a modern edge as well.”

Sweet Tooth Hotel was founded by Cole and Jencey Keeton to shine a light on Dallas artists and create a platform for their work. To help bring 1955 to life, the couple collaborated with artists across a variety of disciplines. Davis explained what being a part of this project meant to her. 

“I’m helping to foster more much needed creative initiatives in Dallas,” she said. “I’m also supporting my friends in their dreams, and really, it doesn’t get much better than that.”

Despite assumptions, Davis expresses how interior design, much like any other job isn’t easy. 

“Designers with great potential shouldn’t be scared to embrace the radical by playing it safe, that’s boring,” she exclaimed. “If you have been given the gift of creative vision in whatever capacity you shouldn’t squander it.”

Nicole is most thankful for her husband Adam, due to his unwavering support and engineering sensibility. The bakery case that so many of our guest enjoy taking photos with was handmade by him!
