Nancy Le Couteur

Owner & Chief Designer

 

Nancy grew up on a farm in rural Pennsylvania.  As farm kids do, she learned the meaning of hard-work and discipline at an early age.  Earning an athletic scholarship (in cross country and track) to West Virginia University, she graduated in 2000 with a degree in Nutrition.  Nancy's career really started in 2001 when she began working as a seamstress. Despite her education, she instantly knew she had found her passion.  Textiles and sewing machines became an obsession. 

 

In 2004 Nancy's adventuresome spirit took her to New Zealand where she found a clear path forward (including a husband)!  Learning under New Zealand designer Ruth Robson, Nancy got her first exposure to the soft furnishings industry.  Eventually Nancy's visa ended and she moved back to Boulder, CO to start a custom home décor business.  Designing and sewing full-time resulted in lots of exposure to both the window treatment and upholstery industries.  Realizing a gap in the market she quickly started Deco Accessories LLC to appeal to the decor savvy do-it-yourselfers and interior design professionals alike.

 

While the focus of Nancy's business is a customizable tab top, she didn’t stop there!  Including a complete range of accessories, from trim to hardware, means that your imagination is the only limit!

Simon Le Couteur

Finance Manager

Simon is our Auckland, New Zealand native and (to feed the steriotypes) comes from a strong sailing background.    This world traveler has visited over 30 counties including several epic family adventures on a 20ft yacht.  He has also called London, England home where he began his career in accounting.

 

Simon met Nancy rockcliming in New Zealand.  They married in 2005 and soon after started their life together in Boulder, CO.  Simon loves the Colorado lifestyle including endless climbing, skiining, and mountain biking.  He can also be seen shoveling snow durning the long winter months, a big change from tropical Auckland!

 

Simon is a qualified chartered accountant receiving his degree from Auckland University.  He looks after the business finances of Deco Accessories so that Nancy can concentrate on product development and staying abreast of upcoming trends.  While he is an accountant by trade, he has a keen sense of design and enjoys the creative outlet Deco Accessories has to offer.  His design influence, while overshaddowed by Nancy, is still present in this collection.
