A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to shoot a stunning neutral home tour in Omaha along with my friend Mandy. The home belongs to Nancy, owner of a gorgeous home decor store Pearson & Company (stores are located in both Omaha and Scottsdale). I have long admired Nancy’s work in our local Street of Dreams and while perusing her home decor store (if you’re local and haven’t been before – it’s a must)!
Nancy describes her style as “Relaxed, cottage comfort with a “Hampton’s attitude” right here in the Midwest”. Perfect, right? I actually told her I felt like I had walked onto the set of a Nancy Meyers movie (think: Something’s Gotta Give, The Holiday and/or It’s Complicated).
Nearly everything in Nancy’s home comes from her store. I’ve included a source list (and paint colors!) at the end of this post, but Pearson & Company can also be contacted directly for any items. For those that aren’t local, I’ve tried to source a few of the items as well. Okay, enough talk! On to the pretty pictures!
The home was built in the early 1980’s, but I think you’ll quickly see that Nancy and her husband have done an incredible job of removing the 80’s vibe from their home – both on the exterior and interior.
Upon walking in the front door, you’re greeted with this beautiful view!
The living room is so cozy and comfy feeling. Since moving in, Nancy had the brick fireplace removed and this beautiful mantle built in it’s place. The ceilings were raw wood and she had them painted and they couldn’t be more beautiful! Although most of her furniture is white (or very light) she swears by here slip-covered LEE Industries furniture (more info in the sources section at the end of this post).
The front room, to the left of the entryway has both feminine and rustic touches
The kitchen and breakfast nook are off of the living room and it is such a warm and inviting space. I have a mad crush on the slip covered LEE Industries dining chairs (they are on casters and roll around so easily even on the rug)! Again, the slipcovers are completely washable, so she doesn’t worry about people eating on their pristine surface (even her grandchildren)!
The kitchen cabinets are all original to the home (they are oak). With other renovation and remodeling costs, Nancy opted to have the cabinets skim-coated (to remove the grain) and then painted, rather than doing a complete overhaul of the space. This is a great example of working with what you have. The results are beautiful!
Moving upstairs to the guest room, you’ll find a serene and peaceful space. The gorgeous Pine Cone Hill bedding is simple, yet adds the perfect amount of texture to the room.
Heading down the hallway to go back downstairs, the view of the living room below is so beautiful. I also obsessed over the navy herringbone runner and oversized abstract art in the upstairs hallway. Not to mention, the framed family portraits lining the staircase were charming and so beautifully arranged!
Just off the kitchen and breakfast nook is this adorable sunroom/dining room. It was original to the house, but when the builder designed it, he added exterior brick on the wall that connects to the kitchen. This unique feature adds both character and the appearance that it was an add-on to the home. Nancy uses the space as her more formal dining area.
Nancy didn’t want us to shoot her back patio, which is just outside of the sun room, because she thought it was too dirty from the fall leaves. But Mandy and I agreed it was perfection and was too pretty of a space not to share! I’m in love with the use of this gray & white striped rug!
I hope you loved this home tour as much as I did! A big thank you goes out to my friend and second photographer, Mandy from Mandy & Such, as well as to Monica and Nancy at Pearson & Company for partnering with me on this post. I think we can all agree that Nancy’s home is stunning!
I don’t know if Mandy and I had more fun touring and taking pictures of the home or sharing laughs afterwards over wine with Nancy and Monica (the mini cheese ball and cookies were provided by Nancy’s friend Paula, of Creme de la Creme and were too good to stay away from)! We are hoping to all partner again to share some of their client home tours down the road!
If you’re local and haven’t checked out Pearson & Company, be sure to stop in! You can find them in the Shoppes at Legacy at 16939 Wright Plaza, Suite 143 in Omaha. If you have any other sourcing questions, feel free to leave a comment on this post or call the store directly at 402.932.5999.

And because I love you all so, and knew that you would ask, I also got a list of the paint colors from Nancy. All interior wall paint is in a flat finish.
