Architectural designer Nancy Fishelson has a natural gift for the marriage of textile, antiques, color, and design. She has been featured in Country Living Magazine seven times. Her work has also been published in Country Home and Better Homes and Gardens, numerous design books and was featured on the HGTV show, Country at Home.
Nancy is one of a group of inspiring female designers, who have an incredible sense of placement, scale and drama. Fishelson favors a neutral palette and then introduces carefully chosen hits of color and great antiques. She creates rooms that breathe and are a pleasure to live in."
She has successfully renovated and designed many homes spanning from L.A to New York, most recently an antique in Litchfield County, Connecticut. All have her personal imprint of clean, engaging design and master utilization of light and space. Nancy is extremely knowledgeable of the construction process, and is an expert in visualizing the possibilities in one room or an entire home.
In addition to her ongoing passion with collecting and antiques, Nancy is currently involved in several projects: a 1840's house in Nantucket, MA, a 1730's salt box in Chesire, CT and the restoration of her own home in Killingworth, CT.
A note from Nancy
I’ve been very fortunate to work with some amazing people throughout my career and I
am truly grateful for these collaborations. With each project that I have done, the elements seem to redefine and hone my particular style.
I have always loved painted furniture and folk art and continue to collect and sell
these pieces. My other passion is textiles. Throughout my home I use these fabrics
on the furniture, bedding and pillows. I adore samplers and very graphic,
simple quilts. I never tire of these pieces.
Recently I have moved back to the east coast and renewed my love for the architecture of this area, as well as the antiques and colors of New England.
As you will see in the items for sale, there is a definite parameter in the items I offer,
as I never buy what I would not put in my own home.
