Nan is a proud alumna of Meredith College - Go Angels!! She received her Bachelor of Science Degree in Interior Design, a FIDER accredited program (now CIDA). When she was not studying or drafting, she enjoyed playing collegiate volleyball.


After college, she moved to Charlotte to begin her Interior Design career. Soon thereafter, she earned her Interior Design certification from NCIDQ, demonstrating her knowledge in design principles, codes to protect the public, and ethical practices.  Her main objective is to use these skills to help clients reach their design goals, including LEED.


Nan has more than 20 years specializing in Commercial Interiors,, specifically Commercial Office, Hospitality, Multi-Family, and Restaurant design. Her motto - whatever you do, work at it with all your heart.

When not designing, Nan enjoys spending time with her husband & furr-babe Cooper, family and friends.

Nan & Carrie Frye met in 2008. Little did we know back then what was in store for us. She was, and still is, my mentor and friend.


We create, we laugh, we draw, we build. Our energy shines through for clients from conception to reality.
