Seng Nickerson’s affinity for story telling started long before she launched sengerson.com. Prior to Facebook taking over the internet and after NSYNC danced their way into our hearts, Seng started her first blogging experience on her university’s server. Now married with children and an exciting career under her belt, Seng still enjoys documenting her love of photography, home decor and DIY projects; all three of which are evident in our collaborations with her.

Get To Know Seng
WNL: First thing’s first, we love Sengerson.com! Was owning your own blog always your career goal?
S: Thank you! You guys are way too kind! While I do dream of running my blog as a full-time career, it was actually developed because I needed a creative outlet outside of my career as a project manager. I love that I can create, write and photograph and share our family’s story through the blog.
WNL: You’ve been collaborating with brands for a while now. Tell us about your favorite brand collaboration and why.
S: Some of my favorite collaborations have been the ones where I can use the products to make our family’s home a home. I know that sounds cheesy, but I love working with brands that match my vibe. Some of the collaborations have been where I have been able to finish decorating my girls’ rooms with wall art and creating a new nursery for my baby boy!
WNL: What are your design choices inspired by?
S: I am in love with neutral palettes, which I got from Joanna Gaines and Liz Marie Blog. Their styles are want I aspire to be! However, I realize I do have kids and white might not always be the best choice for inside the home.
WNL: What design tips do you have for readers at home when taking on projects at home?
S: Have an idea of what your style is. Know your style. Know what you are drawn to. And then make that space uniquely yours. Don’t just copy someone else’s style. Make it your own.
WNL: Describe your design style in 140 characters or less.
S: Farmhouse Style in Suburbia America. It’s possible. 🙂
WNL: Where is your favorite place to work on your blog and why?
S: In our master bedroom! We just updated our master bedroom and I have this AMAZING secretary’s desk that doubles as a nightstand. I can finish blogging at the desk and then just hop in bed! Literally hop.
WNL: Who is your favorite online retailer?
S: I have so many! Walls Need Love of course! Honestly, I don’t have any favorites that I go to all the time. I get inspiration from Restoration Hardware, Arhaus (doesn’t mean I can afford everything there), Cost World Market, Pottery Barn just to name a few!
WNL: What’s the last book you read?
S: The One Thing by Gary Keller and Jay Papasan.
WNL: When you’re not blogging, you can be found doing what?
S: You’ll find me:
- Attending my two girls’ gymnastics classes, soccer practice/games, dance recitals
- Chasing my one year old around as he drops a trail of Skinny Popcorn throughout the house
- Begging my amazing husband to not complain and actually smile about the next family photo shoot that we have (seriously, I work on this guy 3 months before the shoot starts).
- Dancing to Don’t Worry, Be Happy with the kids
WNL: Social network you can’t live without?
S: I’m old school. Facebook. Seriously, I was signed up on Facebook when they opened it up to my alma mater’s email domain name. We go way back.
