Nicola Manganello

Nicola Manganello of Nicola’s Home has a long established history and brand in Maine. From owning a fashion boutique to designing several custom textile and bedding lines with Garnet Hill to developing and designing the coveted Maeve’s Way in Cumberland Foreside- Nicola’s Home is now at the forefront of commercial design. Starting with the Brick Oven Bistro in Freeport in 2012- Nicola has continually honed the craft of making large commercial restaurants and re-invented them into comfortable, authentic and inviting places to dine and enjoy family and friends, while eating local, distinctive food. Having just finished her latest restaurant, the Royal River Grill House in Yarmouth, she is becoming well known for transforming not only homes, but also commercial spaces. 

 Every choice Nicola makes for a space – whether a kitchen, a custom home, a restaurant or elsewhere – is driven by a desire to create warmth and comfort. Not just physical comfort, but emotional comfort. Wood brings warmth. Lighting illuminates without overpowering. Seating is conducive to conversation and relaxation. Dining areas provide plenty of room providing an atmosphere and space for people to linger.

 “She has a unique gift in making a bland, OK space and turning it into something you would never have even thought up- or dreamed of” says longtime patron of RRGH, Matt Auer.
