After spending 18 years in LA, Elaine Hovanisian Bailey eagerly jumped at the chance to return to Chico (her Alma Mater) and bring with her more than 21 years of design experience, joining Nantucket Home’s design team as a senior designer. She loves working with people & enjoys the design process, start to finish. One of Elaine’s passions is textiles, and she continually enjoys finding the perfect fabric to fit her client’s needs.

Elaine’s past experience, working for companies like KREISS & independent design firms alike, has helped her to adapt and thrive in any situation, as she creates beautifully functional spaces. Her clients span from coast to coast, on both residential and commercial projects, domestically & internationally. Elaine uses her friendly nature & excellent communication skills to make your home inviting, usable and a beautiful reflection of your family.

Elaine, her husband & their 7-year-old son are currently enjoying getting reacquainted with Chico, as they settle into this family-friendly city of trees.

“If you have recently purchased a home, or just want to give a facelift to your existing home, I would love to help, on any level – no job is too small. Remember, it’s only a successful design experience if you’re having fun throughout the process.” So, please be sure to stop and say HI next time you’re in the showroom!


We absolutely love the sleeper and rug, everything we wanted and more!  The delivery went smoothly and handled very professionally.  Kudos to the movers, it was not an easy flight of stairs.

Thank you for the orchid I have found the perfect home for it!  The soaps scent are lovely and very much appreciated.

Love doing business with all of you!
