Nancy Colbert, ASID, NCIDQ

Even as a child, Nancy Colbert was interested in the colors, materials and furnishings of her home. With a BFA in Interior Design from Virginia Commonwealth University, she launched Design Partners, LLC, in 2000 and today has more than 25 years of experience designing corporate and residential projects. “I believe a degree is only the beginning of a lifetime of education,” she observes.

Design Partners, LLC, creates beautiful, functional spaces that integrate with the surrounding architecture. Colbert and team members Sherri Crane and Ann Kirbabas stay current with best-design practices, styles, trends and product lines. They work with trusted, talented craftsmen to deliver projects on time and within budget and pay attention to aesthetic preferences and lifestyle. “We do not have a one-size-fits-all approach,” the designer says.

Colbert received the ASID 2015 Designer of Distinction Award. She has twice been voted one of the Top 25 Designers in the Metro Area by Washingtonian, and won the Elizabeth Warnock Prize for Excellence in the Decorative Arts. She has participated in show houses for Children’s Hospital, NSO and the Charity Works Green House.
