‘Tis the season for end of year lists! Here at Nook, you know we love architecture and design, and always have our ears peeled for the interesting news or upcoming taste-makers. Here is just a small sampling of how our industry has changed over the last year.

Here at Nook, we have a passion for people, places, and properties. There is a reason that we say people first, for what makes a neighborhood special if not the people who live there? Welcome to #TastemakerTuesday, where we’ll feature the visionaries in our favorite nooks who are dedicated to building a better community through their talents.
A lot of holiday entertainment is emblematic of its time: Die Hard, Tim Burton’s A Nightmare Before Christmas, Home Alone, A Christmas Story, and even the seemingly timeless adventures of Charlie Brown or The Grinch cannot help but put you into the mindset and flavor of the period when they were created. Two eternal holiday stories don’t seem to age, however, and those are A Christmas Carol and The Nutcracker.
Arts, Culture, Shopping, Eating: You're Always with Family at South Coast Plaza and the Segerstrom Center
by Cindy Marie Jenkins on Friday, December 8th, 2017 at 2:06pm.
Orange County is nearly synonymous with the Segerstrom family name. You find their influence in every large cultural stop and tourist touchpoint. The Segerstroms immigrated to Orange County from Sweden, following that dream of America we are all taught in school. Starting with a meager 40 acres of land, they soon grew to be the region’s leading producer of lima beans. Their subsequent successes with other crops and slowly growing until they owned 2,500 acres of farmland, The Segerstrom family heritage is why we have the South Coast Plaza and Segerstrom Center for the Arts today.
Every building holds its own stories, and we found many interesting facts to share on how both the South Coast Plaza and Segerstrom Center became the booming centers of Orange County they are today.
