Design team magic

Instead of hiring just one designer for your project, you’ll have an entire design team working on your behalf. Nancy is the lead designer for every project, but the team is where the magic comes in. By playing to our individual strengths, we will be designing your dream space and following through on the execution to the last accessory! We’re known for honoring our clients with service and grace as we navigate through your design project.

Almost every client says to us: “I would have never come up with that on my own!” We believe that anything we envision can be brought to life through our vision and the talented trade professionals we will introduce you to. We’re as passionate about dreaming up ideas and making them happen as we are about placing our most unique decorating possibilities

Nancy Lupo

CEO & Creative Director

Let me write this from the heart.  

I am the FULL NANCY.  I always have been and always will be.  Design brings me so much joy that I sometimes can’t help myself with bold statements and exclamations!

I love to make people laugh and have spoken on stage a few times over the years.  When I can bring Joy and design together… that is a great day!

I will bring you right into my fold as we embark on your home journey.  You will truly become part of my design family.  I will boldly proclaim your spaces and tailor design them to you.  I don’t quite know how to articulate this – but I can FEEL when the design is right.  The right style, the right look, the right pieces.  

My life’s work lies in my husband and three sons.  I’ve had the blessing of raising my three sons (a few dogs and a few chickens too) as a stay-at-home mom for their early years. 

I am an active member of my church family and love to travel and dream of faraway places.  I am passionate and bold and full of love for so many things.  I am a lifelong resident of Long Island and New York!

I went back into design about 8 years ago… once my babies didn’t need me as much.  Being a mom is and was the best career of my life and I wouldn’t change it for the world.  

Seeing my clients happy, settled and in love with their new spaces makes me ecstatic! I absolutely love what I do and I am boldly ready to serve you!

Our Talent


Project Manager

My name is Lynn. I have a wonderful husband and beautiful son, who is the center of
our world. My family and I love all animals, but cats are our pet of choice and have been known to rescue a stray or two. I love cooking, baking, taking long walks, and spending time with all of the friends and family I love. Interior design has always been my passion and, in the past, working on my own homes and helping friends and family with theirs allowed me the chance to exercise that passion. I was a business manager for 20 years in the advertising industry before I had the great fortune to come work for Nancy, and with the amazing team at IDBN, as project manager. Now I have the best of both worlds, blending my business experience with my creative side which truly is a dream come true. I often say we were brought together through divine intervention. The IDBN team is truly my second family.


Jr. Designer/Assistant

Hi, I'm Ruby! I graduated from the Metropolitan Institute of Interior Design here on Long Island. I've always had an eye for design and I love the idea of helping people make their homes into a safe haven. I've worked at Ethan Allen and local showrooms on Long Island which has helped me see different sides of this industry. When I started working for Nancy it was the first time I was able to do hands-on design work for real clients, and going to job sites and trade showrooms. I love working here because we really design custom for every client we have. Everyone lives differently and has different wants/needs and that's the fun challenge of interior design, giving a client an elevated functional look, something that they didn't even know they wanted! Working with the team here at IDBN is a privilege, we are truly a family. In my free time, I love to go on outdoor adventures with my boyfriend and having wine nights with my friends!

Damaris Pellegrino

Office Manager

Hi, I am Damaris! I have lived on Long Island for most of my life. I have a wonderful husband, 3 beautiful daughters and a special Bengal Cat! In my free time I enjoy reading, quilting and spending time with those I loveI have been home with my kids for the past 20 years and recently entered back into the workforce. My experience as an office manager at a Long Island Not for Profit, has prepared me well for this new adventure at IDBN. I am grateful and excited for the opportunity to become a part of this amazing Interior Designing company/family.

Barbara McNally


Hi, my name is Barbara. Interior Design has been my passion for as long as I can remember. Put me in an environment surrounded by textiles and finishes and I am a very happy girl! Just as no two people are alike, no two interiors are alike and that is what I love about my job. As a mature, passionate, seasoned designer I have the honor to create a space that best reflects our clients needs and wants. A well designed space is like a warm hug and isn’t that what we all deserve. When I am not designing I enjoy spending time with my husband, two sons and our dog Maggie. Some of my other happy places are gardening, quilting, cooking, baking, photography and spending time outdoors. I am thrilled to be a part of such a talented team here at IDBN.
