11 years of ND Interiors

Recognized for her keen eye and wide-ranging experience, Nancy builds every project upon these fundamentals:

  • An appreciation for the client’s tastes, goals, time frame and budget
  • Consideration of the character and distinctiveness of the home

01 / Our Story

Meet the Designer

Nancy Davilman has been making life beautiful through good design since 2003. That was the year she embarked on a 14-month restoration of her century-old home in Westchester County’s Larchmont Manor.
Nancy devoted every day to being on site — to learning the trades, the timeline, and the overall arc of a full-scale residential construction project. And when the project was completed, Nancy had not only renovated a beautiful home, but she’d also laid the foundation for ND Interiors, the full-service design house she established in 2012.

From Vision to Realization

Nancy brings a wealth of talent and experience to her practice. She is distinguished for her discerning style and regard for her clients’ tastes, lifestyles, and the character of their homes. A creative artist with a background in psychology and financial services, Nancy is uniquely skilled at interpreting her clients’ goals, communicating effectively, and working efficiently within prescribed budgets and deadlines.
While Nancy views her clients as the ultimate tastemakers, her personal aesthetic is inspired by clean lines and Nantucket summers. She regards soothing and tranquil spaces as the perfect backdrops to her busy life.
Westchester-raised and Connecitcut-based, Nancy has longstanding relationships with highly regarded vendors, artisans, and craftspeople all around the globe.

A Note From the Designer

Welcome to ND Interiors- I’m so glad you’re here! A little more about me:
 

01

Good and happy

One of the most important qualities for a designer to possess is the ability to understand the client’s needs and aesthetic, and then to work together to realize these desires in a tasteful and modern way. For me, design is a collaborative process. I think it’s vital that a home reflects what makes a client feel good and happy.

02

Sense and sensibility

I can’t say that I’m a bargain designer, but I don’t believe that something has to be expensive to be beautiful. When possible I believe in repurposing what one has, and then filling in with new items. It’s not like you have to start with a blank slate and throw out everything you own. There are so many ways to incorporate what you already have. It’s all doable.

03

Ducks in a row

I enjoy projects with a lot of moving pieces and a million details. The scope of the “To Do” list can initially overwhelm a client, and I’m happy to come in and streamline the parts. All the client’s questions come to me. I know exactly what I have to ask of contractors and vendors, what things I can answer myself, what’s important and what’s less so. I’m often way ahead of schedule in terms of selections, which is satisfying to the client and appreciated by architects and contractors.

04

All about the client

I consider the client’s tastes to be paramount. It’s the client’s life and it’s their home — and what’s a home if it doesn’t reflect its occupant? If a client really likes something, I’ll try very hard to make it work but I will speak up if I feel they are making a mistake. What makes the client feel good is what matters, as opposed to me putting a specific stamp on every project. It really is all about the client.

05

Sunrise, Surfside. Your way

My goal is to give my clients what they want, in a way that’s refined and tasteful. Every project is distinct, yet my aim is always to create a beautiful, welcoming place where people can comfortably live their lives the way they want to. In my own home I’ve used a soft palette of greys, blues, and silvers, with some earth tones — colors that remind me of beautiful places I’ve visited, like Italy and Nantucket.

06

Artist in residence

I’ve always been involved in the arts, most often from a creative standpoint. I designed and handcrafted fine jewelry, working in 22 karat gold granulation. I worked in ceramics. I made stained glass windows and went on to teach stained glass classes. I’ve always loved the decorative arts, and the practical experience that launched ND Interiors was the total renovation of my 100-year-old home in the Manor in Larchmont, NY. I can’t think of a design area that’s uninteresting to me and I’m always excited by the prospect of solving a problem in a beautiful way.

07

I hear you

My background is in psychology. And obviously my business is totally client driven, so I think that my listening skills and my ability to understand people — and really hear what they’re saying and what they’re asking for — has helped me quite a bit in developing a diverse and satisfied client base.

08

Welcome home

I’m fascinated by other cultures and have been fortunate to have traveled extensively. My trips abroad have informed my understanding of design, and I’ve enjoyed enduring romances with some of the most awe-inspiring cities in the world. I was born in New York City, and lived there as a young child and again as an adult, but my formative years were spent in Westchester. I’ve also lived in Atlanta and in San Francisco, where the architecture is wonderfully varied. I’m grateful to have the opportunity to design interiors for homes of all styles. Above all, I always try to make sure each member of the family is comfortable. You have to feel at home in your home. Make it beautiful, but make it home.
