Nancy Hansen helped us with 3 bathroom overhauls and advised us on updating our foyer. Each bathroom had to be taken down to the joists in a 100+ year old house and then totally rebuilt in limited space. She helped choose tile, colors, and furnishings that made the most of small bathrooms. She was spot on with all of her ideas and knew the materials that we were working with inside out. She contacted and conferred with the dealers and contractors to make the transformation smooth. The results are on hers and houzz’s websites.
Nancy is extremely professional– helping to make difficult decisions but not taking over the decision making. Her ideas and advice are always exceptional but she does not allow her ego to overwhelm the home owner. Her advice leaves the customer with a beautiful yet functional room that suites the home owner’s needs and personality. She also sees options for the rooms that, in our case, we would not have seen and helped us implement these options in a productive, yet cost efficient way. Nancy gives interior designers a very good name, plus she has an amazingly affable personality.

Nancy Hansen designed a master bathroom for my home. Nancy was easy to work with, professional and always concerned about the budget. The bathroom is beautiful, met and exceeded my expectations. It was a pleasure to work with Nancy. Nancy also worked on my master bedroom and that too is beautiful. She was especially helpful in picking out carpet with my ever changing mind. I would highly recommend Nancy not only in her professionalism but her friendly manner in working with me. I would not have the bathroom and bedroom I now have without Nancy’s suggestions in the design of my rooms. Nancy also worked extremely well with my contractor. All deadlines were met.
We hired Nancy to design a small master bathroom. An existing chimney in the corner was preventing us from getting the bathroom we wanted and we’d been stuck for a year trying to come up with a design that would maximize the use of our existing space. By the time a friend recommended Nancy. we had one in mind but wanted another opinion. Nancy started by talking with us about our bathroom needs/desires. After 10 minutes in the bathroom, she came up with a similar design to the one that took us a year but then added other touches to maximize the space. Beyond the basic design, Nancy has enlightened us regarding a number of different options that are available. We wish we had consulted her earlier.
Whenever I have asked her for cost estimates regarding her time, she has done so willingly and been spot on. She is a wealth of knowledge and we will definitely use her on other projects; Beyond her professional excellence, she is simply a pleasure to be around.
Ten years ago we signed a contract to build a new home. We had no idea what we had gotten ourselves into, but realized we needed someone with design experience. Fortunately, we found just the right person, Nancy Hansen.
We thought we were getting an interior designer but quickly learned that Nancy had so much more to offer. She made several suggestions to the architectural plans such as adding a bay window, reconfiguring a stairway landing, and designing a basement bath. Nancy was able to envision the overall house and how it would fit together. Her creative ideas helped to distinguish our home and reflect our personalities.
Five years later, circumstances led us to purchase a lovely older home with the idea to renovate in the future. Our first call was to Nancy. During the design process, we were amazed at her ability to sketch in perspective- which allowed us to easily visualize various architectural concepts. So confident were we and the builder, we found we did not require an architect. The builder worked directly with Nancy on all the designwork.
We have been impressed by the scope of Nancy’s design ability from traditional to contemporary and everything in between. She quickly allayed our anxiety that she would influence us to accept her particular design preferences. Instead Nancy readily got to know us and in fact helped talk us thru learning about our own style. She has reduced our stress, and we often joked she offered good marital therapy.
With Nancy’s guidance, we again have a home that integrates architectural interest, personalized design and reflects our unique interests and family lifestyle.

I want to let you know what a pleasure it has been to work with you on our Master Bath and Bedroom Project.
Your wisdom and knowledge not only saved us money and time, but also helped us create exactly what we wanted within our budget.
I look forward to working with you on our next project—the kitchen. I wouldn’t think of doing that without your guidance.
Thanks for all your help.
I have to tell you how much I love my newly redecorated living and dining rooms.
It is unbelievable to us how changing paint color, carpeting, and rearranging and adding new furniture has changed the whole personality of the space. Your suggestion of creating a cozy reading nook has been my salvation on many a night.
It is hard for us to remember what the kitchen even looked like before your transformation. Once again there was a limited budget, and you took a full scale remodeling project and made it spectacular and affordable. You listened to my dream, and with your creativity and intuitive talent, gave me a home I really could be proud of.
