About the Designer…

I’m Nicki. I live in Portsmouth, RI with my husband, two active kids (I am a true soccer and basketball mom), and one crazy dog. Welcome to my site where I share simple ideas for fabulous style.

I have loved decorating and redecorating for as long as I can remember. Even as a little girl, I would tirelessly rearrange my bedroom until it was just right. During my career as a schoolteacher, and my time as a stay-at-home mom, I continued to fuel my passion for finding bargains, mixing and matching styles, and reinventing the rooms in my home.

Now that I live near the sea, one of my favorite past times is finding sea glass on the beach with my children. We store it in a glass jar and keep it on the windowsill. It is like collecting summer memories, and it makes me smile. It is also an absolute classic “trash to treasure.”

Don’t get me wrong – I still have paper chains in my kitchen, counting down the days ‘til Christmas, and there’s always space for one more piece of kid art on the wall. But I think homey touches and sophisticated style can coexist harmoniously.

I am so lucky to now have the opportunity to do what I love most – decorate homes and share my ideas with you. It reminds me of my sea glass. Turning trash to treasure, and creating memories, one piece at a time.
