The Voice Viewing Party

Lisa's son, BRIAN FUENTE, is officially a star!! In case you missed The Voice on Monday night, Brian auditioned with the song Paris by Grace Potter, and he ended up on Team Blake! (Blake Shelton, that is.) We could not be more excited for him!


Lisa invited a bunch of people over to her house to watch Brian's national television debut over a glass of wine and some sandwiches. To make things even more exciting, WLBT showed up to do a news story on Brian/Lisa! Since Brian's segment wasn't until the very end, Roslyn Anderson and her awesome camera man watched the whole show with us. We had a blast!



If you saw the show, you know that we didn't get to see quite as much of Brian as we saw of some of the other contestants. BUT, we found this video over on so we can see what would have been on the show, had time allowed...

Here's the bit of his performance that aired:

There is a video of his full performance somewhere, but NBC seems to have taken it down for now... Once we re-find it, we'll post it for you!

Be sure to watch the next episode on Monday at 8/7c to see who else ends up on Brian and Blake's team!

Why You Need to Watch THE VOICE...

We have some VERY exciting news around here! In case you haven't heard (or haven't caught a quick glimpse of him on the previews for the show), Lisa's son Brian Fuente auditioned for NBC's The Voice! (The Voice is an incredible concept for a TV show. Learn more about it on!) Season 2 of the show premiered last night right after The Super Bowl, and resumes tonight at 8/7 central! We aren't sure if Brian's audition will air tonight, or if it will be next week, but the show is worth watching either way!

To learn more about Brian and his music, you can go to his website, or you can search for him on YouTube. We think you'll like what you see! :)

Our New Website

Have you seen our beautiful new website?! Lisa's son Brian does all of our gorgeous visuals. All of our pretty ads, graphics, and WEBSITE are his magnificent handiwork! Our new website, which launched just a couple of days ago, is so easy (and FUN) to navitage. Here's a quick little overview!

The new homepage scrolls through several beautiful pictures of the store. Not that our old website was bad (at all!) but this is just plan fabulous!

The "Shop" tab will eventually be an e-commerce page, but for now, it's a "Coming Soon" page! "The Store" tab allows you to see some AMAZING photos of our showroom, done by the oh-so-talented photographer Rachel Kabukala!

Next is our "Events" tab. This will keep you all up to date about special sales, events, and other fun store happenings! Definitely a page you'll want to keep your eye on ;)

Now for one of our favorite tabs.... "Press!"  This is a quick look at the magazines we've been published in. Fun stuff!

"Interior Design" is the next tab! This is a showcase of some of our projects. We've done tons and tons, but these are the ones we just have good pictures of! We could spend all day looking at these pictures... :)

The "Bridal Registry" takes you to our Invest in your Nest page, and the "Blog" tab takes you, well, HERE! (You are on our blog right now, FYI) :) Lastly is the contact page. This shows you a map of where we're located as well as a contact form if you need to get in touch with us!

So how do you like the new site? We're completely in love with it, and will be for some time to come!
