Welcome to Home Designs by Nancy.

As a certified redesigner and home stager I would like to help you transform your home (inside and out)

Hello, my name is Nancy Yates and I have just retired from full time nursing and moved to beautiful Vancouver Island. In my professional career as an RN I learned to listen and work well with people. Together we can achieve a space that reflects you and your lifestyle.
I am passionate about home design and believe in making any living space into its best potential. Often it is a simple fix. Painting or adding a feature wall, decluttering, moving and/or eliminating furniture, tidying or adding to the landscape.
My goal is to create a warm and inviting home for you to enjoy with your family and friends.

As a new retiree I now have time to pursue my passion.
I have bought, redesigned and sold many homes as well as consulted and assisted others with color choices, painting and redesigning their homes and businesses.
I have just completed the course on Home Staging and Redesign with Quality of Course Design School in Ottawa. I am excited to combine my passion with formal knowledge
Now I wish to share this appreciation and knowledge with you. Together we can consider changes to your home to achieve the look and functionality you desire.
