Nancy received a Bachelor of Science degree in Interior Design from the University of Illinois and began her career as a custom cabinet designer at Gary Bryan Kitchens & Baths in Springfield, Illinois. After welcoming her second child, Nancy moved to the Peoria area and spent the next several years raising her children and volunteering. In 2006 she opened a boutique called re-, which specialized in “green” gifts and applied her creative talents to teaching classes to promote the philosophy of her shop, “re-claim, re-purpose, re-think”. She closed the shop in 2014 and it wasn’t long before she missed the daily interaction with clients and came back full circle to her career at Demanes Interiors of Peoria. In October of 2016, Nancy joined the Lippmann’s team.
Nancy’s retail background in combination with her experience with kitchen and bath design, contemporary design, commercial design, and environmental stewardship has given her a varied background to help with your personal design needs. She believes that a home should be your sanctuary and that design cannot be hurried. Her goal is to make sure that your spaces flow well together, whether you are adding one piece or remodeling an entire space.
