We had a wonderful experience with Nina Nazarov in the design of a new home. Nina is talented and insightful. She is professional, personable and caring. Her response to issues and questions in immediate. We thoroughly enjoyed her creative and technical skills in bringing expression to our sometimes vague and random ideas. Her ability to listen to ideas and feelings and interpret them architecturally is truly a gift. She is likable and transparent in her demeanor and we found her to be a delightful person with whom to work. We highly recommend her.

Our design firm worked with Nina for approximately a year on a luxury vacation home in Hood River, Oregon. She was a large asset to the team and instrumental in the beautiful finished result. She was thoughtful in her solutions, accurate, and team player to our shared client, the builder, and our interior design team. She supported our interior design role and complemented us well. The architecture and finish details of the residential home were sometimes extremely detailed and technical, many times outside of the common practice for the builder and his team. Nina provided technical drawings for the build team - working with the manufacturer’s specifications. Some of these products and build practices required her to do a fair amount of research for accurate drawings. I also found Nina able to handle stressful, time sensitive changes in stride with a can-do attitude. When something was urgent she made herself immediately available. I would be delighted to work with her again and recommend her highly.

I had the pleasure of working with Nina on a high end custom home in Sonoma County completed in 2016. As a Project Manager, I value Nina’s timely feedback and detailed drawings of questions that arose during construction. Nina has a great eye for design and her cooperative nature was a great asset to the overall result of this beautiful home. I look forward to working with Nina in the future.

I worked with Nina on a great project last year. Even though she was out of state and only came to the sight a few times, were able to work though this challenging project with a great outcome. She always got back to me when I needed her the most, and was willing to work through a lot of difficult design details. I have been in the business for 30 + years and worked with a lot of architects. Nina was very user friendly and made this difficult project go a lot smoother. I would highly recommend, and hope to work with her again in the future

Nina is amazing! She helped us with our house remodel - we added another master bedroom, and we couldn’t be happier! Not only did she have a very good vision of the living space, she was always on time, very punctual, precise and easy to work with. Nina is a true professional. She spent the time to understand our needs, proposed a few design options, waited for us to choose the one we liked (it took us a few iterations), and then worked on the details. Her drawings were spotless and easy to understand. She also researched the paperwork processing in our city (San Jose) and guided us on getting the approvals. Needless to say, we got the drawings approved within 2 hours, with no objections from the city. Once the remodeling was completed - we have a decent size bedroom and a beautiful bath! I would definitely recommend Nina for any house remodeling needs.

You are in good hands with Nina! We worked together on a large custom home design for a client and she was truly professional, accessible for questions and design changes while also extremely thoughtful about the comprehensive design. I also found her incredibly easy to work with, always ready to lean in as needed when any issues were encountered, offering creative solutions and a beautiful final product. As an interior designer I work with many architects on a daily basis but Nina has earned my respect and I even hope to work with her on the design of my own personal new build.
