About Us

Hi there!

Welcome to my shop.

I'm Molly, the face behind the Nested Sanctuary brand. As a busy wife, and mom of three boys, my goal for this business is to share my love of family and my passion for creative and accessible design as a way to inspire your love of home. In the shop, I offer affordable high quality products that I am proud to showcase in my own home. I carefully select beautiful home accents, apparel, and gift items that speak to my unique sense of style. Home is your sanctuary and I believe it should be a reflection of who you are and what you love.

The Nested Sanctuary story began in 1991, when my mom, Vicky, opened her first store in Laguna Beach, California. Ten years later, a second location followed in Laguna Niguel, California. Her shops were always a family enterprise, with relatives and friends both behind the scenes and behind the counters. Growing up, I spent my Summers working in the shops alongside my mother and grandmother. My "Summer job" developed into a love of the business, and passion for home and holiday decorating.

Mom and I worked side by side for many years, and loved the opportunity to collaborate creatively. We enjoyed building relationships with our customers, who quickly became extensions of our family. In 2014, both my mom and I moved away from our California home, and a decision was made to sell the brick and mortar shop we had built together. It was very hard to close that chapter in our lives. Shortly after our respective moves, we realized how much we missed working together and felt like our creative story needed to continue. From that, the idea for Nested Sanctuary was hatched.

We launched Nested Sanctuary together in the Fall of 2015. In the beginning, we worked together across state lines, until my family and I relocated to Texas. Over the last several years, we have enjoyed working together to grow this new business. But after over 30 years in the retail industry, my Mom decided to retire at the end of 2019.

I am very excited to launch this new chapter of Nested Sanctuary on my own, and intend to offer value beyond simply selling home and holiday products. I hope you'll follow along with me on the blog and my social media accounts for more behind the scenes looks into my home and family life. 

I look forward to helping you make the best of your nest!
