“THOUGHTFUL DESIGN TRANSCENDS TIME, CAPTURING A UNIQUE NARRATIVE FOR EACH AND EVERY SPACE”

— Isabel Dellinger Candelaria
ISABEL DELLINGER CANDELARIA, Principal Designer and Founding Partner | Owner

As the principal designer and founding partner of Earth and Images, Isabel brings an atmosphere of grace, wisdom, and intuition to all aspects of her craft. Her keen ability to perceive nuance and hidden beauty, brings rich insight and significance to her designs.

With a BS in Psychology from the New Mexico Institute of Mining & Technology, and a graduate of the American Institute of Interior Design, she sees through a lens of artistry, sensitivity, and analytics.  

Prior to owning Earth and Images Interiors, she managed a custom furniture and cabinetry showroom, arousing a love for merchandising and design. Raised in northern New Mexico, Isabel has lived in Scottsdale, AZ since the late 1990’s. For Isabel, ‘design is life’ — spending her free time flourishing her creative spirit through travel, nature, history, art, and gastronomy.

“THERE IS NO BETTER PLACE TO FEEL ‘KNOWN’ THAN WHEN YOU ARE IN YOUR OWN HOME.”

— Nikka Bochniak
NIKKA BOCHNIAK, Principal Designer

Nikka’s desire to create purposeful interiors, fueled her passion for Interior Design. She obtained her BA in Interior Architecture from the University of Nebraska at Lincoln, then set her focus on instilling authenticity, warmth, and connectivity into her craft. Her innate sense of color, harmony, and poignant observation, foster a tangible sense of hospitality.

Nikka’s undeniable devotion to the outdoors, family, and her furry friends is a testament to her contagious warmth and spirit. Her curiosity and thirst for knowledge, culture, and travel, enrich her unique perspective — bringing an enriched sensitivity to everything she touches.
