Our Project Life Cycle
Interior Design By Nancy’s portfolio shows our range of styles and flexibility for every client. Seeing our projects reflect the needs and lifestyles of our clients is a great joy and honor.
From Montauk to Orient, Long Island to New York and beyond—we bring an extraordinary level of detail to every phase of the design process. We are thoroughly involved from start to finish, and each client has our focused attention. The not-so-secret ingredient that makes every aspect of our design process enjoyable for our clients is that we genuinely love what we do. We love to serve! Any measure of success we’ve enjoyed begins there.
Starting with you
Your vision is the cornerstone of your home! We are envisioning your complete home as soon as we walk through your doors. You may have had a spark of creativity, a Pinterest board, or an original idea for your design—or maybe you just know that your home has potential locked inside the walls. That’s all it takes to set one of your dream projects in motion. We incorporate our client’s aspirations for their space into cutting-edge luxury interior design plans tailored-made for their lifestyle. Whether it’s a full-house project or a few rooms, we offer you the highest quality services in our field. We’ve designed interiors for many upscale residences, so we’re able to put our deep experience to work creating beautiful, high-functioning, unique spaces you will never want to leave.
One-on-One project Consultation
Before we dream up something grand for a new build or reinvent an existing layout, our concierge-style process begins at your one-on-one project consultation. Here we start to understand the big and little things that matter to you. We imagine your vision with how you’ll use the new space and start to envision a design plan.
Designing each project is unique, and no set mold prescribes what our role should look like. Using a unique, customized approach, our clients feel heard, understood, and well-served. With our extensive trade partnerships and team of professionals, there is no project we can’t handle.
CEO and Creative Director, Nancy Lupo, oversees every plan and project, shaping all interiors with the rest of the design team. Together, they orchestrate all aspects of a project–including purchasing, budget creation, project management, and installation oversight. From architectural details like custom cabinetry, millwork, and finish work to selecting hardware, lighting, flooring, furniture, and accessories to managing subcontractors (electrical plans/lighting, plumbing, paint, and wall coverings), your home is in capable hands. Our team manages all project details so you can relax and enjoy the process.
The execution phase of each project begins at the drafting table. To ensure your home’s architecture and our design plan integrate beautifully, we create 2D top-down furniture placement layouts along with detailed descriptions of each piece from throw pillows, fresh flowers, family photos, curtains, and rearranging furniture, to the play of natural light for that space. Whether we’re working on a sizable new construction project or just updating a few rooms, we love to present our clients with a visual representation (with samples) of our plan to offer a full realistic view of their entire project.
Placement and Reveal
Each project is special to us because when it all comes together in the end, we get to see our clients live in a space that will serve their needs and lifestyle.
It takes so much planning to reach this final stage of our design process. And since we are there with you every step of the way, it’s as exciting to us as it is to you. As we unwrap and perfectly place each piece delivered, the excitement grows.
On the day of the reveal, nothing makes us smile more than seeing the joyous look on your face. Unveiling a completed project is an emotional, happy-tears kind of time. Living in a home that reflects who you are and inspires you at the same time is a little bit of heaven. A custom-designed space adds a new level of joy to our clients’ lives — especially if they’ve wanted it for a long time.
Professionals We Trust
From custom builds and renovations to conversions, we work with an extended team of trade professionals to execute a flawless plan. We’ve built strong partnerships with industry-leading builders, craftsmen, woodworkers, window treatment and kitchen specialists, tile and fixture distributors and more. Interior Design By Nancy relies on this core team every day to achieve the best possible outcomes for our projects.
For residential projects that are underway, clients may bring us in as part of their design consultancy group. In these cases, we work with their builders, architects, and contractors. Whether we use our team of trade professionals or yours, we serve the needs of clients first. This distinction has earned us an exceptional track record.
What our clients say.
“When I needed to hire someone to do a big basement floor project, the first person I asked for advice from was Nancy. She recommended a high-quality contractor whose workmanship was fantastic. I can always count on Nancy as a resource when I need it.”
