My name is Tracee Strong and I live in Oklahoma. I started designing part time while being a stay at home Mom in the 90's. My girls are grown up now but my son is still young, although he is as tall as me now-jeesh! My BFF and I had a sewing business where we would create window panels, pillows, poufs, and quilts all while our toddlers would crawl all over the fabrics spread out on the floor. Occasionally, I would refurbish used furniture. I also did holiday decorating for 10 years.
"Working part time was a blessing but having a new passion in the retail industry is exciting and is what God has already prepared me for."
Now my new journey is to create an online atmosphere as well as a store front that will inspire people to enjoy their own surroundings and domain. My inspiration comes from keeping it real, when it comes to casual comfort in my own living spaces. I'm often partial to the colors and textures of exotic trades. NUVO HOME will give consumers the newest in home trends from around the world, right at their fingertips. The millennials generation have no idea what it was like to shop with such limited resources. Online shopping or just Pinterest and Blogs give ideas and convenience to the consumer.
Eclectic is really the best word to describe my style. Kinda like the Old English Rhyme- Something old, something new, Something borrowed, something blue. A little bit of everything please! Contemporary designs can be cool and modern but also be boring and uninviting. I like sleek items mixed in with soft textures to help anchor a decor that would otherwise be sterile. For instance- mixed metals with organic wood sculptures is my favorite way to finish a room.
