Award Winning Design

Award-winning interior designer Nancy Sanford works with clients in Denver Metropolitan Area, Boulder and Colorado Mountain resort areas, providing them with creativity, individuality and interesting interior designs. A great room has an abundance of personality and Nancy designs rooms with personality.

Her interior design work has been featured in many major publications, including 5280 Magazine, Colorado Homes and Lifestyles, Better Homes and Gardens, The Denver Post and Colorado Expressions.

Unique and stylish interior design

Interpreting your ideas and vision, Nancy uses colors, patterns and styles to enhance the beauty of your home or commercial space. She also works with you to make the best practical use of your space, improving the functionality and flow.

From metro Denver projects large and small to dynamic ski homes in Vail to signature office spaces and exciting restaurants, Nancy uses her creative energy to complement her clients’ tastes and needs.

Nancy loves what she does, which is why she is one of the top interior designers in Colorado. With 20 years of experience as an interior decorator, Nancy has found that it’s extremely important for her to provide the right amount of input.

Full-Service Interior Design

Nancy offers a complete array of interior design services, including space planning, lighting, furniture, remodel and new construction finishes, construction documents, management and more. When needed, she can enlist the services of reputable builders, furniture makers and artisans who can assist in the completion of your interior design project.


With more than two decades of experience as an interior decorator, award-winning designer Nancy Sanford has an uncanny knack for helping clients “discover what they really want” in a room, home or commercial space. By sharing their ideas and vision, she uses colors, patterns and styles to redecorate and renovate residential or commercial spaces in the Denver and Mountain areas.

One of the keys to interior design is providing just the right amount of input. “I can be hands-on or hands-off, or anything in between,” says Sanford, who writes a bi-weekly design column for the Vail Daily (see the Articles page for samples). “Some clients want a quick turnkey solution while others want to partner with me and get really involved. Some clients will give me a little bit of an idea and ask me to run with it. Ultimately, it’s all about creating an interior design that works.”

Art and Global Travel

Sanford’s unique background has enabled her to take fresh, innovative approaches to interior design. Her passion for art and travel are major influences in her work.

In addition to a BFA from the Boston Museum School of Fine Arts at Tufts University and a degree in Interior Design from the Colorado Institute of Art, she has traveled extensively through Europe and Asia.

“Seeing different interior designs in various cultures really opens my eyes to new possibilities,” Sanford explains. “It enables me to offer many more options.”


Since launching Nancy Sanford Interior Design in 1996, Sanford has completed a wide array of design projects, ranging from large estates to lofts to corporate offices. 

Nancy has collaborated with some of the most talented and respected architects, furniture makers, artisans, and builders in the Denver, Boulder and mountain resort communities of Colorado. She leverages these relationships to create interior decorating projects that are aesthetically pleasing, on schedule and of good value.

The interior design of a home plays a major role in creating comfort, functionality and a relaxed atmosphere. If the space functions well, looks beautiful and reflects the client’s personality, it produces positive energy that improves the quality of life.

When you come home from a hard day of work or a long trip, your home should be a calming and comfortable haven where you can unwind and settle in. Nancy Sanford can help make the changes needed to turn an ordinary residence into a personal sanctuary. Nancy enables clients to determine their own individual styles, blending her experience and eye for detail with their personal tastes and preferences.
