We hired Nordby Design Studio to assist with a phased renovation of our contemporary home in the Newberg, Oregon area. I interviewed a number of architecture firms, but chose Nordby Design Studio for several reasons: 1. Jon was very engaging in initial meetings and I could sense he had a good understanding of our objectives and how to help us realize them. 2. The Architecture and Interior Design disciplines are entwined tightly, which led to a better use of space, materials, light and colors throughout. 3. They were great about listening to our ideas and telling us when and why they were/weren’t on target and making us feel part of the process. My wife and I have worked with Jon and Julie Nordby over a number of years as we have renovated our home. We have done both small projects and those on a large scale over a few years — they have taken our basic ideas and needs and turned those into great plans. They’ve also helped us find great contractors to get the work done well and a reasonable price. I highly recommend them.
Jon and Julie Nordby did an excellent job helping me get my kitchen remodel going. I needed help converging on a lot of decisions like granite selection, what to do with the cabinets, etc. Julie was very good at helping me come up with a cost effective way to bring my kitchen up-to-date. They were very accommodating on schedules and seem to always put my best interests first. I definitely plan to use Jon and Julie on my next project.
Jon designed an award winning 45,000sf office and warehouse tenant improvement. He used recycled materials when ever possible and used natural lighting with the use of large skylights throughout the open office areas. The use of interiors colors and unique architectural features made the interior offices very comfortable for all the employees. Jon’s knowledge of people traffic and work flow was taken into consideration to enhance the efficiency of the entire building. The lunchroom was multifunctional by use of a roll-up door with translucent panels. The flooring in all high traffic office areas was recycled rubber tire material, which has long wear and easy maintenance. The manufacturing areas also had skylights for natural day lighting and doors placed for efficient traffic and material flow.
Westside Church of Christ remodeled its old administration office are for a new teen center. This included removal of existing walls and adding a coffee ‘Café and two new classrooms. Jon was able to work with the City of Beaverton to expedite the permitting process and resolve firewall and occupancy issues. Jon’s knowledge of the building and code issues allowed us to work more effectively with the teen advisory group and the City of Beaverton. The area for the Teens turned out to be a great space for the teens to use and development of the spiritual and social growth.
Model homes; especially show homes can be challenge because they have to appeal to a wide spectrum of people. For this reason I was pleased at how flexible Julie was with her ideas and concepts. She listened intently to different opinions and found ingenious ways to incorporate those ideas into the home, always keeping in mind the theme in mind. She developed creative ways to use color and to tie different elements of our home together so that the end product was gorgeous and our home was a showstopper.
In the fall of 2002, we under took three small remodeling projects in one of our lease buildings. This involved turning an open office area into a training room, two small conference rooms into a Customer demo room and removal of three existing offices and creating a new open office area. Jon was involved in the layout of all the new spaces and it was a pleasure working with him. He listened to our concerns and needs and incorporated then effectively. We intend to use Nordby Architecture LLC for all of our future architectural needs.
“Nordby Architecture LLC Studio did a fantastic job from start to finish in handling all the details that were needed in our remodeling project. Our plans were very specific and our general contractor and subs were all able to work more efficiently. Jon did a great job br ainstorming different ideas to consider as we put our plans together and offered different options that would affect the bottom line of the project. I would highly recommend Nordby Architecture LLC for any future projects any one may have.”
Nordby Architecture LLC allowed us to stay in our home longer than expected. Our 1954 Ranch style house was our first home we bought. 10 years later we are still in the same house. But now… it’s bigger, better and more beautiful. Our new design allowed us to stay in the area we love and in our home as long as we see fit. If and when we move, we will call Nordby Architecture LLC for our next project.
In all, Julie has brought her creativity and design ideas into my homes. Her services have included; color selected, drapery/rod selection, fabric selections, custom furniture selections as well as a furniture/floor plan. The end results are beautiful and have a cohesive flow; which brings balance and warmth. If you have been lucky enough to discover Julie Nordby and have a need of any of her services I highly recommend her.

Thank you Julie!
Last year we put our 13 year old house on the market for five months and were unable to sell. We took the house off the market and consulted with Julie Nordby regarding updates to the home. With Julie’s keen eye, knowledge of decorating products and trends, and her familiarity with the local real estate market we updated the kitchen, family room and paint colors. Before we returned the house to the market, Julie helped us stage the home with great sensibility to our budget and our comfort. Throughout the process Julie was thoughtful, responsive and enjoyable to work with. When we put the house back on the market we had three offers within the first ten days! Needless to say, we ended up with a full-price offer, and couldn’t be more happy with Julie Nordby and her team!
Hired Nordby Design Studio to help with redecorating living/dining room, office, and bathroom. Julie Nordby has been outstanding to work with! In addition to creating different options for furniture layout and assisting with shopping for furniture/fixtures/paint, etc, she took the time to coach me through the process of the steps involved in replacing the counter/sink in the bathroom. Since I didn’t hire a GC, her support was critical in helping me understand the steps involved and the types of contractors I needed to hire (fabricators, tiler, plumber, etc). She has been incredibly patient as I’ve changed my mind multiple times on furniture choices, has been flexible with her schedule to accommodate several last minute consults on color/fabric, and has been willing to play larger or smaller roles in selection of various items as my budget allowed. We are very happy with our final look and would highly recommend Nordby Design Studio!
It was a true pleasure working with Julie on my home remodeling project. Her expertise was the foundation of the whole project. Initially when Julie made selections with different styles and colors I was a little skeptical as I lack imagination in terms of how everything will look when it comes along, but when things started falling in place the house looked absolutely stunning. In picking up different materials Julie was very careful about the prices. Julie’s services included redesigning and new layouts of master bath, and picking up every bit of material from tiles/back splashes to light fixtures. In summary you can not go wrong with Nordby design studio. It is truly 5 star service.
I have know and worked with John and Julie on a number of projects and i would recommend both of them to anybody. They have such a great eye for detail and there designs always have such good flow and curb appeal to them. They bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to even the most complex projects coming up with excellent designs and finishes to produce very beautiful projects of all different kinds. As well as they are both just amazing people of character on honesty that they bring into every project with them.
Julie has helped to transform our home from it’s original 30 year old footprint to a beautiful modern and tranquil home . We have come to trust her recommendations as always right on and love the results. She is a creative and passionate designer who we would highly recommend.
Julie has provided consultation and implementation in the updating of our main level: Kitchen, DR, LR, Office, MA BD & BA and entryways. She has taken the time to know our taste and style and is able to translate that into her suggestions and purchases. She is also available to answer quick questions over a text message, email or telephone call. Her friendly manner, ability to listen and style, along with her desire to keep current and forward-thinking, makes her a perfect match for my husband and I. She has also helped many of my clients in their real estate needs, whether it is getting their home ready to put on the market, or updating a newly purchased home. My clients have commented on how easy she is work with, that she really listens and doesn’t impose her ideas on them.
Nordby Studio was hired to do the architectural drawings and layouts for a remodel of our main living areas including kitchen, family room, master bedroom, master bath, entryway and powder bath. We also consulted with them on color, furniture layout, lighting, tile and floor choices. We love our new spaces. They are functional and beautiful. We were pleased with the process and enjoyed the collaborative style to accomplish our goals. We have recently hired them again for a deck design and some updated decor ideas.
I can’t say enough positive things about Nordby Design Studio. Building a home is a very stressful and overwhelming experience, there are a million decisions and you tend to second guess yourself through out the process. Nordby design studio made the whole design aspect of building my home exciting and constantly put me at ease. They were with us every step of the way (literally :) They are professional yet personal. Julie is very talented in everything she does. She can envision the end result and helped me layer by layer create this beautiful space that I didn’t even realize existed . I would and will recommend them to anyone building a home or need design of any kind. I constantly get compliments on my home and feel very indebted and grateful to John and Julie for helping us build our beautiful home.
Julie has helped transform my dated home over the past few years into a brighter, happier place to live. She is the utmost professional with ideas that reflect my lifestyle and work within my budget. Julie truly listens to her clients and brings creative and tasteful designs to reality. I give her my highest recommendation.
During this past year, my husband and I have benefited greatly from the friendly yet quite professional help of designer Julie Nordby, who assisted us with a major remodel in our home in preparation for our selling it. Julie’s insight into what are some of the most current designer choices and treatments has resulted in a home that is not only wonderful to live in, but also highly marketable. Work done throughout our entire home has included the following: a complete transformation of our kitchen with quartz countertops, tile backsplashes, and stainless steel appliances; a re-due of our master, guest, and hall baths with a mix of marble and porcelain surfaces; and new hardware both inside and out. New lighting and bath fixtures along with updated paint colors for our woodwork and walls have given a much updated look to our home. Giving patient attention to the smallest of detail, realtors, contractors, and friends alike are in agreement with us that they would not think twice about entrusting their home to Julie’s design expertise.
Nordby Design Studio has done several projects for us. We initially hired Julie to help us furnish a vacation home. She did such a wonderful job that we had her help us with furniture selection for our main residence. We couldn’t be happier with the results!! Julie has a great sense of design yet is able to make recommendations that are in harmony with her customers’ style and preferences. Julie will continue to be our go to expert.
I have worked with Julie Nordby on three different projects over the past several years. The lastest one was in the Spring of 2012 to update my family room and kitchen. I knew the look I wanted and with Julie’s professional advice and design skills, I have the results I had hoped for. She is easy to work with and I would not hesitate to recommend her.
Had it not been for Julie, building my dream home would have been overwhelming and a decision making nightmare. But it wasn’t at all. Julie guided me through the process with her understanding of design and wonderful sense of style and knowledge of current trends. I had confidence in the items we were picking because of how current her knowledge is. Julie also had resources that I didn’t have access to, making my home more unique and beautiful. From the grout colors to couches, Julie knows it all and will make any project dramatically easier. She see the whole picture and will make the whole house flow with design. Julie is extremely easy to work with and likable to all who know her.
