Founder

Hi. I’m Nancy and I’d like to share my story with you.

I grew up immersed in the world of interior design, going to antique auctions and strolling Decorator’s Walk even as a child.

But perhaps because interior design was too familiar, I pursued a business degree in college and landed a corporate marketing job with a large Fortune 100 company.  In time, I earned a Masters Degree in Business from the prestigious Entrepreneurial Program at the University of Southern California.

But I loved interior architecture and decorating and couldn’t get enough of it. I filled my spare time remodeling several homes, helping friends with their decorating projects, and assisting charity benefit groups with their decor.

In 2000, I left corporate America to follow my life-long passion and opened a design firm in the Los Angeles area.  All of the skills I had learned came together and my clientele grew quickly.

As a California Certified Interior Designer and National Kitchen and Bath Association AKBD member, I love collaborating with clients to create spaces they love.
