Since 1982, Nancy Watts has helped her clients create their dreams. She understands the desire to feel comfortable in their surroundings. The old saying, “A man’s home is his castle” rings true with Nancy.
She starts every initial visit with an interview, getting to know her clients in order to truly understand their style of living and the look they wish to achieve in their new or remodeled home or room.
“Listening is my best feature,” says Nancy, “If I don’t know you, how can I create the perfect end result?”
A must-have for every home is proper lighting. “Lighting is so important to me. I like to back-light, especially on top of armoires and behind plants…it’s so nice to walk into a room and have that little glow in the corners.”
One of her “Tricks-of-the-Trade” includes faux finishing. “I’ve used this everywhere; I’ve even done ceiling fans,” she says. “Or, I might find just the right wall sconce or accessory, however, the finish may not be quite right. No problem, I can usually work some magic with special glazing or dark wax. At least, I’m not afraid to try! If I can’t do it, I have a very talented artist/faux finisher I can call on.”
Another is her custom window treatments and bed ensembles. “Every customer has a special way of living, and the treatments have to work for them. Having an extensive library of fabrics at my finger-tips helps me find the perfect fabric, color and texture for each application.” Texture is also paramount in Nancy’s decorating.
And third would be critiquing architectural plans before a client’s home is built or remodeled. “I see things that are sometimes overlooked by architects and I love to ‘walk’ through the plans and tweak where necessary. Again, I have to get to know my client’s lifestyle to do this.”
Whatever your style…Hill Country, Texas, Cowboy, Tuscan, Hacienda or even Mid-Century Modern, Nancy can find the perfect piece or a whole houseful of furniture. First, she utilizes the local Kerrville furniture showrooms (Rustic Elegance, Moore’s Home Furnishings and Rick’s Furniture Company). If not satisfied, she goes to Fredericksburg (Double-R-Drygoods) or to San Antonio’s many fine furniture galleries (John-William Interiors, Louis Shanks and Stowers just to name a few). If the mission is not complete, there is always Dallas’ World Trade Center, a resource mecca to the trade.
Whether you are building a custom home or remodeling, Nancy can help you make the right decisions the first time. Her services include staging one room or an entire home, custom drapery and shades, bed ensembles, furniture, rugs, accessories and all types of floor covering (wood, tile/stone, cork, vinyl plank and carpet). Nancy can also assist in the selection of paint, cabinets, counter tops, appliances, lighting and plumbing. In addition, she keeps an up-to-date resource of qualified and reputable contractors, sub-contractors, vendors and installers to recommend when needed.
When she’s not making your home beautiful, Nancy is also active with the following local affiliations: Hill Country Builders Association, Kerrville Area Chambers of Commerce, Kerr County Women’s Chamber, Riverhill Women’s Association, Member of the Board of Directors of Playhouse 2000, and Republican Women of Kerr County.
