  • “Nicole Balch has a terrific eye for detail. Her rooms have lots of texture and depth from fabrics to paint to wallpaper. She carefully plots her design plans on the home and often shows a mock-up of the changes before she executes. Her layouts of her decorating ideas are similar to a magazine spread. I also love her idea to photograph her daughter (with handmade number ribbons) every month in the eames rocker to document her growth. Nicole is amazingly talented!” —librarymary | View librarymary's favorites
