Moving into the heart of the city from its former space in Belvedere Square has done wonders for Nouveau Home and Interior Design. “Being beside a thriving restaurant [City Cafe] and a neighborhood with energy helps,” said Lee Whitehead, co-owner. “People pop in and grab gifts. We feed off each other.” Whitehead and co-owner and lead interior designer Steve Appel opened the business in 1987 with a focus on antiques. The business has evolved into offering home decor and interior design consulting.
