More is More Mom Nunley

<p>I am Vanessa Nunley; the More is More Mom&reg;. I am a professional mother, Interior Designer, Life-Stylist and blogger <a rel="nofollow" href="http://moreismoremom.com/">http://moreismoremom.com</a>&nbsp;As the More is More Mom&reg;, I believe that more of everything is always better, especially making more memories. My message conveys my passion for: Gracious Living and Creating Meaningful Life Experiences.</p> <p>As the sole proprietor of Vanessa Nunley Designs, I bring twelve years of Interior Design expertise to my clients in Chicago and the surrounding suburbs. My goal is to help my clients develop and interpret a personal style that reflects the way they live. However, the way our homes look is only one component in our quest to live a gracious life. Another is the way in which we use our homes to create experiences with our family, friends and guests.&nbsp;</p> <p>Entertaining guests in your home should be an event! One of my passions is throwing fabulous soirees, which is the perfect blend of my individual philosophy about being a hostess with my personal style as an Interior Designer. I share my theories about entertaining, developing party menus and designing gorgeous tablescapes and buffets in seminars that I present to Chicago area organizations and groups.</p> <p>My interest in raising a family, interior design and entertaining led me to write a book that is ready for publication. I share my thoughts on these subjects daily at my website; <a rel="nofollow" href="http://moreismoremom.com/">http://moreismoremom.com</a> I am a daily contributor to the Chicago Tribune&rsquo;s on-line newspaper, the Triblocal, and am featured twice monthly in the Triblocal&rsquo;s print edition. I write about motherhood, family life, personal style, home d&eacute;cor, entertaining, cooking, recipes and slice of life stories. I have been described as a stylish and organized Erma Bombeck.</p> <p>&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> <p>Monday, September 6, I was featured in a live in studio segment on Chicago&rsquo;s ABC 7, News at 11 a.m., where I presented my tips and inspirations for throwing a fabulous Labor Day party. I demonstrated how to make a delicious appetizer, all of which can be found at my website, in addition to ABC.com.

I shared some of my philosophies about entertaining and the importance of being a gracious host. In keeping with the spirit of the season, I applied those principles to celebrating Halloween, Harvest and Christmas.</p> <p>&nbsp;My IFDA program was so well received that I have been invited, by the Chicago Merchandise Mart, to be a featured speaker at their largest tradeshow of the year in January, 2011.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p>
