Welcome to Nora's Nest!

Hi, I'm Nora. Welcome to Nora's Nest!

Since I can remember, I have loved all things home decor and design. When I was a young girl growing up in Texas, I would steal my mother's home decor catalogs and stay up all night circling the items that I longed to collect for my future home. In 2012, I purchased and began renovating my first home in Los Angeles with my husband, so my dreams are coming true.

I hope you enjoy the blog, and I welcome any questions and inspiration you may have. Thank you for visiting!
