Senior Interior Designer
Nancy Widi’s career in interior design began in the most unlikely of places—her parents’ basement. As a child, Nancy would spend hours laying out remnants of parquet tile left over from her father’s work in commercial flooring to arrange floor plans she’d love to one day call her own. However, after growing up and finding her way into interior design, she found that environments that were functionally well-designed simply weren’t enough—they also needed to incorporate human needs and emotions. The most thoughtfully realized interiors, she learned, also inspired their occupants to feel a certain way, depending on their purpose—inspired, safe, focused or merely just comfortable. Though Nancy’s experience includes designing interiors for everything from corporate offices and banks to retail facilities and airports, she found her ability to integrate the “human factor” in her designs was particularly critical for healthcare environments. In designing a cancer center for one healthcare provider, Nancy went to great lengths to create a space that was warm and uplifting while also ensured patients’ desires for privacy. Nancy’s “caretaker” personality and natural eagerness to please also extends to her approach working with clients—it’s why many of them have called on Nancy’s talents time and again for years, even decades. She simply knows how to put people at ease.
