Nancy Hadley

The premier on-camera designer for bars, nightclubs and restaurants, Nancy Hadley brings an unparalleled wealth of experience as a renovation expert, whose sparkling stage presence delivers clear and entertaining insight to the science of interior design.

Hadley’s audience knows her work best from her time with Top 10 television shows, such as ABC’s "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition," "Trading Spaces," Gordon Ramsay’s "Kitchen Nightmares," and her favorite, Spike TV’s "Bar Rescue." A classically trained painter, sculptor, model-maker and artist, she has “made over” hundreds of restaurants, bars, homes, museums and businesses under the tightest of budgets and shortest of time frames.

President of Nancy Hadley Fine Art and Consulting Inc., Hadley began her career designing and developing large-scale interactive exhibits around the world while moonlighting as a specialty sculptor for Mattel. Recruited into television by the executive producer of "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" in 2004, she designed and installed hundreds of rooms, often with less than 24 hours to effect the transition. Her time on the show led to her first Emmy, and continued success in the field of design has led to other awards and accolades, including a Telly, as well as features in the Orange County Register and Artisphere. She is a past Advisor to the Professional Decorative Painter’s Association, the former designer for the Newport Harbor Nautical Museum and a contributing writer for the International Decorative Artisan’s League.

Hadley’s readers gain insight into her proven methods of affordable design, planning and execution of bar and nightclub exterior and interior renovations that are inviting to the eye, welcoming to the spirit and instrumental in developing longer lasting and better customer experiences to allow owners and managers to stay ahead of the shifting sands of fashion.
