One of my new year’s resolutions has been to blog more..so finally (mid Feb) I MAY (no promises) be getting revved up. One of the priorities and goals in this plan to blog more is to highlight creatives and friends I admire and want to recommend and tell you all about. First on that list is my dear friend and former client Nancy of The Decor Detective.
She is from Savannah and loves blue and white so of course we immediately bonded! Nancy was one of my first clients YEARS ago!
I will be honest sometimes it stings (or it used to before divorce, doesn’t really both me anymore, hello #perspective) or is a tad awkward when a former client or someone I consulted with goes on to do their own design or styling business. But never the case with Nancy. And truthfully I am super busy anyway and there is room for ALL OF US in this big sea of making the world beautiful one little home at a time. SO instead of competing let’s choose to encourage the ones we respect and admire and look forward to watching GROWTH and success! There is room for everyone and we all have our unique talents and niches!
So back to Nancy, I mean look at this bathroom she just did…so fun!
The before and after is insane! Did I mention that Nancy was a Chemist (yes a chemist) in her former life before kids so of course she is great at the details!
I love the Albert Hadley-esque wallpaper…she shares the sources on her blog.

Did I mention she has three boys…she understands how a real family lives and how hard we can be on our homes. I love these silhouettes below…Nancy loves color! So interesting to me, she has such a sweet and kind and meek personality but she loves bold color and just ask her about DARING GREATLY! She has inspired me so much the past few years! She may seem quiet and calm and meek but she is a strong woman and mama and now stylist!
GO NANCY GO!
If you live in the Houston area of Bellaire or West Univesity, Nancy can help you find the perfect faucet or mirror or fabric. She is so good at her detective work she often helps ME source stuff or go to stores “in town” if I don’t have time because she will be “on it” and sniff it out like a pro! On top of that talent she is maybe the kindest person EVER. I am serious. Like I said, she has three boys and I love talking to her about parenting too. She just has a heart of GOLD and a great eye and heart! She is just starting out but I know she can handle your project and if she is unsure or you are unsure I am happy to collaborate with y’all on a project…I believe in her character and abilities that much1
The truth is I live in Brenham now, further from Houston than ever and I can take less and less jobs inside the loop so I am thrilled to tell you about Nancy. And look at all of her cute packages she offers more here…I love the names and descriptions! Brilliant Nancy!
