We engaged Noble West Design to help update and redo our commercial space. Noble West created better traffic patterns between two buildings and two floors, defined new spaces, chose colors and materials to work with our 43 year old established business. The store stayed open during the redo and Noble West worked to make the transition easy on our clients, staff and management. The new look is in keeping with our heritage and respects our long standing customer’s needs and expectations. Our budget was tight and NobleWest graciously helped us make decisions to everyone’s satisfaction. The finished job is just what we wanted and more than we expected. Specific problems that were addressed: inventory repositioned; change the use of existing fixtures; new finishes for distinct product categories; keep the look of the company consistent; change traffic flow; choose floor covering, paint type and color; new light fixtures; work with subs; assisted in merchandising inventory.

Nancy West helped us out in a real pinch, and she did wonderful work. We needed to paint the drawing room and library of the elegant mansion at this National Historic Landmark, following plaster work done after the 2011 earthquake. Due to a miscommunication on our team, the painter was coming in a couple days, and the paint colors had not been determined. I called Nancy for help, and she responded immediately with excellent choices for paint colors. Now two of the most prominent rooms in the mansion look stunning. Nancy is a consummate professional, with great sensitivity to her clients’ needs, and I would recommend her to all. The mansion is open to the public for tours if you would like to see Nancy’s work in person. Andrea McGimsey, Director, Oatlands Mansion, Leesburg, Virginia

I really enjoyed working with Nancy West. Although I was working with a limited budget,Nancy found ways to transform our living room from a dark heavy environment with no particular focus to a light inviting space that feels casually elegant. The room is challenging because it’s where people enter the house so it felt like a room with a hallway going through it. We first focused on finding slip cover material that would unify my eclectic furniture. I went for a modest priced material for the sofas and chairs and splurged on material for the accent pillows. Nancy noticed a lovely botanical calendar that I had and suggested having the photos framed because healing plants are such a big part of my story. I moved a distressed bureau into the room and hung several of the prints over it and now when one enters the house, it feels like a gallery drawing attention to the botanical prints instead of like a hallway. Working with Nancy gave me the confidence I need to take what I learned from her and transform one room at a time. Noble West Design will help you turn your home into a 5 Star experience!

When Leisure world opened in 1999, I was one of the first occupants. The walls and the rugs were white. The color of the day was off shade of white. I finally realized a change was much needed. I knew Nancy West, socially, and heard she was a very qualified designer. She has a reputation of being an excellent color and space coordinator. She came to the condo, looked it over and was most tactful in suggesting changes. She noticed I had a penchant for modern with a touch of antiques furniture piece. Her suggestions turned a dull environment into a vibrant home. She knew I was open to suggestions. Upon entering the condo there is a hallway to your left. She asked if I would like that wall to be purple. I caught on – this would tie in the purple couch. She made many simple, inexpensive suggestions and we cannot praise and thank her for her talents. The rooms have their own personalities. The place is alive but quiet at the same time. A friend was considering painting her home. I suggested she contact Nancy to assist her with this job. She called to thank me for recommending Nancy. She said she would never have picked these colors and they turned out perfect. I hope in the future she will do another update for us.

Nancy assisted us with both an interim room redesign plan and a long-term plan with color and furniture suggestions. She worked with what we had and loved, and considered the demands of a family with animals and a young child. Her room redesign completely opened up our space, and made it functional for both daily family living and entertaining. We look forward to working with Nancy when we truly redecorate. In the meantime, we love our home again! Trish McNeal, Leesburg, Virginia

Because she has a drafting as well as a design background she was helpful to us in working with our builder to solve construction issues as well as the selection of cabinetry and finishes. She often has simple and not really expensive solutions to problems. When selecting furnishings, fabrics and paint colors for our sitting room, guest room, and dining room. We used Nancy in both the building and interior design process. When we gutted and built a room Nancy helped select colors and patterns that were well suited to the use of the rooms as well as our individual taste. That talent also makes her advice helpful when staging a property for sale. Leah Ferguson, JT Ferguson Real Estate
