A fashion photographer with a studio in downtown Chicago and a degree from the Art Institute, Nancy fell in love and refused to move to New York to pursue a career.
Instead, she opened two flower shops in downtown Chicago: one in the Congress Hotel, the other in Institute Place, focusing her artistic eye on creating beautiful floral designs.
The economy changed. She closed the shops. And for the past fourteen years, she worked in the restaurant industry – first as part of the opening team for Chicago’s House of Blues, and then as an executive with Rosebud Restaurants.
But she always kept her hands in floral design, doing private parties, dinners and seasonal decorating for clients on the Chicago’s Gold Coast and North Shore.
Four years ago, she realized she needed to open another flower shop. Fast forward to July 2011. Nancy found a wonderful corner space in the Lincoln Park neighborhood, signed a lease, called in the painters, ordered a giant cooler and put signs in the windows.
Today, Nancy Krause Floral Design & Garden Antiques provides gorgeous floral arrangements and custom bouquets to smitten clients throughout the Chicago area.
