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