3 Reviews for Nicole Priddy for Ethan Allen Arlington, VA
Nicole was a wonderful consultant and designer. We were a bit uncertain about so many things, but with Nicole's listening ear and corresponding ideas, she created a new space that brings us joy every time we walk into the room. Throughout the process we were most appreciative of Nicole's timely correspondence, budget sensitivity, and patience….with us. We look forward to working with Nicole again and with certainty extend our highest praise.

I had a terrific experience working with Nicole. I was buying furniture on my own (single guy) for a condo and really needed good guidance. Nicole has superb judgment and really understood my taste. In particular, she helped me pick a great furniture combination for my living room and selected the right colors, fabrics and patterns. She also found beautiful carpets for my living and dining rooms. Nicole is incredibly responsive, patient and accessible. I visited her store a number of times, and she took time to diligently review all of my options in the process -- I never felt rushed and always felt like a highly valued client. When I encountered budget challenges for custom pillows, she worked hard to find a more affordable alternative that left me just as happy as I was with my original selection. She also came to my condo for measurements and after the furniture had been delivered to ensure everything looked just right. She really managed the process well -- staying in touch and ensuring all the items were delivered in a timely fashion (items were ready and delivered at different times over a period of time). I have received rave reviews from all of my friends on my interior design. I would recommend Nicole in a heartbeat.
I worked with Nicole Priddy in order to decorate my living and dining rooms. This is my first home and I was starting from scratch and didn't really know what I wanted. Nicole listened to all of my requests and concerns, came over multiple times to see the space in person and take measurements and then created a complete plan for the two rooms within just a few days...not to mention keeping it all within my budget. To say I am satisfied with the final result is an understatement! The rooms are beautiful and exactly what I was hoping for. After the initial furniture order came in, Nicole went above and beyond to help me pick out artwork and accessories and helped me choose custom framing options using pictures and frames that were not bought from her company. She came over another two times and helped me put everything together. Nicole is intelligent, professional, responsive, genuine, creative, talented and a perfectionist in her work. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for an interior designer and hope to work with her again in the future.
