Welcome to Jodi Nichols Interior Design! 


The projects that I handle are broad in scope and range from structural home renovations, to real estate staging, to the selection of matching furniture, curtains, decor and lighting, to proper furniture placement and other similar design services.

As a girl raised in Florida all my life, I've always had a passion for the beach and all things coastal. In my professional career, I have over 25 years of successful, progressive operations leadership experience in resort hospitality and vacation rental management as well as over 10 years’ experience working in interior design across Florida. I have always been passionate about coastal interior design. My experience working in the vacation rental industry in Florida and knowing what is required to meet guests and owner expectations brought me a level of expertise and service that other local design companies were not able to provide its clients. Locally, I have been able to use my natural creativity, knowledge, experience, and strong attention to detail to successfully update over 30 properties on Anna Maria Island in addition to my vacation rental management position since moving down from the panhandle in 2012. My personalized designs have created a fan base with local property owners who have utilized my services to renovate more than one of their rental properties.

I pride myself on being detailed oriented, professional and creative. As someone who is a passionate perfectionist, I always work closely with my team to ensure the quality of work provided in all areas exceed industry standards as well as guest and owner expectations. I bring years of experience and a wealth of knowledge in Interior Design as well as in Hospitality Operations, Property Rental Management, Team Building, Training & Development and complete Customer Service through working with well known companies such as Walt Disney World, Gaylord Entertainment, Wyndham Destinations and ResortQuest as well as managing large resorts and multi million-dollar vacation rentals across the Gulf Coast of Florida. During the course of my professional career, I have managed all aspects of resort operations and vacation rental management and have an extensive understanding of all divisions and its departments as a leader overseeing 50-200+ employees. As an Executive Manager, I directed the operational activities of departmental managers to provide the highest standards of courteous service while maintaining a professional work environment.


As a designer, I have strong leadership abilities to oversee any size design project and my interior transformations have helped maximize rental numbers, increased sale prices, and shorten the time the properties sat on the market. I have a special insight into what clients, renters, and prospective buyers are looking for. I provide personalized service to home owners and work closely with a local licensed General Contractor to bring my visions to life and have long standing relationships with local rental management companies, vendors and realtors.


UPDATE: In January 2020, I partnered with Island Real Estate of Anna Maria Inc. to help create, develop and lead Island Real Estate Vacations LLC. as Co-Owner and Chief Executive Officer as well as continuing to lead and manage interior design and renovation projects for properties on Anna Maria Island. 
If you’re thinking of updating or renovating your property to help its overall appeal and give it a better marketing stance, then you’ve come to the right person to position your property for success. I look forward to working with you!
