Meet Designer Nancy Lavely


Having grown up in Tupelo MS, with a father who was a contractor, Nancy grew up in construction and has a lifetime of experience in building. She got her first drawing board at age 15 and began "tweaking" plans and making selections in his homes.

After majoring in Art at Ole Miss, Nancy went to an architectural drafting school in Memphis, and apprenticed to an Architect doing his residential design / drafting by hand. She returned to school to finish a degree in Interior Design from the University of Southern Mississippi, specializing in kitchen and bath; and an Art degree from the University of Tennessee.

After spending years designing homes for clients, Nancy decided to focus her talents and abilities in kitchen and bath design. She worked for a high end kitchen and bath store in Memphis, Tennessee, and then opened her own store, Cottage Cabinets, in Jackson, Tennessee. When her husband, Dr. Phil Lavely, retired from the University of Tennessee at Martin, they moved to his hometown of Savannah, GA.

Nancy and Phil are now owners of a kichen and bath design studio, Cabinet Wishes, in Savannah GA, in the Marsh Point Plaza, at the intersection of Ferguson and Diamond Causeway.

Nancy uses Plain & Fancy Custom Cabinetry in her designs. The brand name Plain & Fancy is derived from an old Amish saying that things should be plain unless their "fancy" features also have a function. She fell in love with the cabinetry while in Tennessee. Upon visiting the manufacturing plant in Shafferstown PA, she immediately noticed the pride in spotless surroundings both inside and out. True to the Amish way of life, there was an emphasis on quality achieved by the group rather than as an individual effort.

"I have worked with a dozen different lines of manufactured cabinetry, and Plain & Fancy stands head and shoulders above the rest in terms of value and quality."

Nancy has a great in-depth knowledge of home construction. Let her interior design expertise help you with your kitchen or bathroom renovation or new construction.


Tools Of The Trade - What Nancy provides

Credentials




"Nancy is the greatest - very easy to work with. She takes direction well and significantly improves on it. She was a major contributor to our whole house renovation which went beyond just cabinets. She was THE architectural designer and instrumental in getting the plans approved by the Association's architectural review committee. We expanded the house foot print with a new master bath area along with a new patio porch, rearranged rooms, bathrooms, closets, etc., including new HVAC system and supporting infrastructure. She was a key part of it all. An expanded new kitchen, and new bathrooms were an integral part. Original owners could not believe the transformation when they saw it. To quote Mrs. previous owner when she saw the kitchen/family room area: "Jaw dropping improvement". Nancy's expertise was instrumental in bring the project to a successful conclusion. We could not have done it without her!" ---- Blair Gensamer
