About Natascha Folens
Walking through rooms designed by Interior Designer Natascha Folens, a progression of carefully crafted surprises unfolds before you. Ranked top three interior designers by Virginia Living Magazine in 2013, this Belgian-born designer brings a distinctly sensible look to her work on homes, hospitality and commercial properties.
NF Interiors (NFI) was founded in 2002 with the initial vision of enriching American homes with the timeless Belgian design Folens has been surrounded by throughout her life. Born and raised in Belgium, she moved to the United States in 1984. She returned to Belgium to attend University in which she received a B.A. Degree in Human Resource and Business Management followed by a Masters Degree in Telecommunications.
Following a career as Director of International Operations for AOL, Folens focused on her home and passion for Belgian influenced style and design revitalizing an ages-old design philosophy. She began with her own personal masterpieces, her homes in Great Falls, Virginia, and Belgium. The local buzz was intoxicating and caused an explosive, creative stir amongst friends and colleagues. Soon, she was in demand and NF Interiors was born.
11 years later, NF Interiors is an interior design firm with clients located throughout the Eastern region of the United States and Europe. Folens strives to make rooms look natural by using a perfect blend of comfortable furniture, flowing fabrics, unique accessories and great use of lighting.
Working between the US and Europe, she often takes customers abroad to look for unique pieces that add a depth of character to each space. She attends furniture shows in Paris and Belgium in an effort to stay in close touch with the furniture makers and antique hunters so as to deliver the most unique pieces to her clients.
What sets me apart is that I use many international sources. People come to me expressing they are tired of the same trending looks and are looking for contemporary timeless designs in their business or home,” she says. “Let’s delve back into specialty and one-of-a-kind versus mass produced… quality over quantity.”
She approaches her work fearlessly taking on daunting projects that require significant construction or restoration. Her inspired treatments give projects new life.
Folens resides in Virginia with her two beautiful children.
