What Our Clients Are Saying :

We had grand visions for our new house, but were stuck, unable to make our dreams reality.  Enter Nwankpa Design. Susan is amazing. She not only translated our dreams onto paper, but utilized her design talents to troubleshoot problem areas, formulate cohesiveness between styles, and found solutions that placated some very opinionated arguments. Nwankpa Design made our dreams a reality.  Susan’s creativity, vision, and patience transformed our remodel from a chore to a fun and rewarding experience.

I have always thought of myself as having a good eye for design and aesthetics, but I quickly accepted that I was WAY out of my league. I was totally overwhelmed. We wanted to come home and feel like it’s ours even if we need the help of a professional. Susan helped us inject all the super intimate and personal details into our home that make us excited to be there. There were several issues we hadn’t even considered:

Budget : What?  How?  One of the first things Susan did was give us a soft budget and a global understanding of what we could expect based on our needs.  Super helpful in setting up expectations and helping with the following:
Taste : My husband and I have rather different taste in almost everything except food (so it works).  We also have different ideas about where to shop for home goods (hint: Amazon isn’t meant for everything).  Susan has the most incredible resources! Our house is very modern (my husband), but we wanted a HOME we could build a family in that felt warm.  That meant a lot of compromising on styles, but also help identifying a unifying style that would do all things.  SUSAN!!  She is a wizard.  She not only was a relationship counselor for home-good shopping, but she also has a spectacular ability to hone in on a style that fits everyone’s needs.  
Personal touches : We don’t want to live in a hotel.  We want to come home and feel like it’s ours even if we need the help of a professional.  Susan helped us (and is still helping us) inject all the super intimate and personal details into our home that make us excited to be there.
Patience : You need this.  She has it.

I can’t rave about Susan and the help she provided our family enough. I love her dearly, but more than anything I respect and appreciate her. Do yourself a favor— hire Nwankpa Design.
