Nicolette Jarquin, CKD, Designer / Manager

Nicolette began working at Arcata Cabinet & Design Co. alongside her father, Tim Patton, in 1995.  She quickly began building a passion for design.  In 2001 she moved to Davis, CA to pursue her Bachelors of Science degree in Interior Architecture.  After graduating , she moved to Sacramento, CA where she designed kitchens and whole homes, managed construction projects, received numerous awards for her designs, with many projects published in local and national magazines.  She is a Certified Kitchen Designer (CKD) through the National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA) and attends trade shows regularly.  

With so much professional success, she still felt that something was missing.  That something was Humboldt County.  After spreading her wings, it was time to come home.  In 2015, she joined Arcata Cabinet & Design Company again to share her inspirations.  Nicolette enjoys her family time with her husband and son and also likes to cook, make jewelry and hike in the redwoods.

We worked with Nicolette on our full kitchen, laundry and powder room remodel. Through her design process she listened to what was important to us and incorporated our ideas into the project, leaving us with a kitchen that truly represents us and who we are. Nicolette added unique details such as leather pulls and antique wheels on the butcher block cabinet, a barn door design in the powder room and an oversized cast iron farmhouse sink in the laundry room; adding that touch of rustic we were looking for! With so many choices in materials, colors and style it was nice to have Nicolette take the lead, presenting us with her selections. And she was dead on! The colors all worked so well together, as the project started to take shape, each added piece enhanced the next. We couldn't be happier with the end result. 
This being our first major remodel project, we didn't know what to expect and were unsure of how it would all come together. Nicolette handled every detail, communicated with us almost daily, kept us informed of the construction schedule, walked us through ordering the fixtures, the appliances and choosing paint colors. We worked together closely throughout the entire project, resulting in a perfect collaboration, Nicolette's expertise combined with our vision! Job well done!
