Discover my story

Hey y’all, I’m N’Ckyola [ní-ˈkō-lä], but most people call me Nikki.  I’m a semi-retired Holistic & Sustainable Interior Designer based in Houston, TX. I love to share my experience creating & living a beautifully functional natural lifestyle at home!

I’ve always been slightly shy and very introverted but I’m a Southern girl, so I can’t help but invite everyone in for food & sweet tea (or wine)! I’m so glad you stopped by my corner of the world!

Come in, grab a drink & visit for a while!

Lifestyle

AT HOME

With a focus on holistic & sustainable design, I help my clients reuse and up-cycle what they love and recycle the rest. I really do practice what I preach & do the same in my own home. I love to share many of the projects I take on & share resources for sustainably sourced home decor.

Recommendations

WE ENJOY GREAT FOOD

Living the Green Life includes eating healthy food that tastes great too.  If you can’t grow it yourself, then pick it yourself, cook it yourself, & enjoy it.  Grab a recipe or 2 for food I eat & feed my family, share some of your own, or just chat about what works & what doesn’t when you’re trying to eat healthy tasty food.

Home Grown

From The Garden

Follow me & my family’s journey to self-sufficiency by growing, eating, and sharing our food in our small-ish backyard garden. We are in zone 9a & have unique seasons, challenges, & BUGS! I share as much of it all as I can.

This is my 5th year gardening & am constantly learning SO much. Let’s learn & grow together!

The ache for home lives in all of us. The safe place where we can go as we are and not be questioned.
