Fine Feathered: Living the Good Life in Omaha, Nebraska

A designer combines her love of community, cooking and secondhand finds to create a thriving business and blog in Omaha.



The portrait in the dining room is Jessica's favorite piece of art in the house. She found the vintage wood pedestal table at a local antique shop and the Eames-inspired dining room chairs, originally used in a Nebraska school, at a flea market. The Sputnik chandelier is from eBay.

In the living room, a collection of local art, throw pillows and a rug are pulled together by the clean lines of the sofa, a hand-me-down from Chris' mother.

Shelves stocked with books, pottery, photos and trinkets act as functional decor along the front wall of the living room.

Jessica and Chris use a spare bedroom as their home office. The chair is upholstered in a custom fabric, and the midcentury dresser holds office supplies.

Chris and Jessica found this wingback chair in an antique shop and had it reupholstered. They had the curtains made.

Jessica converted her home's attic space into a master suite, a technique she often suggests to clients to expand living space without adding on to a home's footprint.
