“Nancy Meadows is much more than an intererior designer. With her warm and sensitive style, she cares about the individual with whom she’s working. She helped me think outside the box and understand how much my environment affects how I feel.”

“Having been widowed after after a long marriage, Nancy helped me find my way and discover what would give me a relaxed, happy, and serene home. She also helped me see the things that were negatively affecting me: clutter, too much furniture, color, and stiff furniture placement.”
