Designer Spotlight – Nan Wright

Nan Wright Interior Designer Spotlight

“I enjoy working on both residential and collaborating on commercial projects. Each of them poses different challenges, which makes life interesting.” – Nan Wright

We love seeing our slabs featured in designers work! As we continue our Designer Spotlight’s blog series, today we share with you Nan Wright from Wright Interior Group! Nan discusses with us some of her favorite UMI products, why she decided to become a designer and more!

Q: Tell me a little about your background.

 

A: My husband and I moved from New York City to live in a warm climate and selected Naples given that the community is rich in culture. I started Wright Interior Group in 2003 and have enjoyed transforming condos and building homes ever since.

Q: How and why did you decide to get into design?

 

A: Believe it or not, I wanted to be an architect when I was in design school but didn’t want to spend the extra year it took. So now my favorite part of the project is the space planning and building.

Q: What design style do you mostly associate with…contemporary, eclectic, sophisticated, etc…  And do you prefer residential over commercial projects- why?

 

A: I like transitional design for my clients and most people who have been to my house are surprised at how traditional it is. I enjoy working on both residential and collaborating on commercial projects. Each of them poses different challenges, which makes life interesting.

Q: Is there one project that you are most proud of, and would like to share with us, that included UMI and our natural stone(s), Pompeii Quartz, Vetrazzo or maybe Sapienstone.

 

A: We built a large scale home in Port Royal from the ground up. It took 3 years and we incorporated a lot of custom made furnishings and lighting that we designed. We did use a lot of material from UMI

  • The entire entry curved staircase was fabricated out of Bianco Neve
  • Vetrazzo complemented an Azul Do Mar quartzite bar and bookmatched backsplash in the outdoor kitchen
  • Calcutta Manhattan marble was transformed into a complete vanity with an integrated sink out of the same marble

Q: You are well known in the Naples design community, but what would be one thing, most of us would be surprised to know about you?

 

A: I absolutely live and breathe what I do and being a perfectionist is an absolute curse! I surprised even myself by becoming an obsessed dog owner after always having cats.

Q: How can customers contact you if they want to learn more?

 

A: Visit the website at www.wrightinterior.com or call me at (239) 260-4850.
