he said, she said

When our young family moved from an apartment to a somewhat quirky house, getting the look and feel right seemed daunting. Nest Design worked within our budget to suggest paint colours, select furniture and to design spaces that kids could play in and adults could relax.

As we made the changes to our home, we were always impressed by how right it was for us, particularly given the very basic brief we had provided to Nest Design. Such simple and effective changes made such a difference to the spaces we spend so much time in and now enjoy so much more!

The personal follow up to ensure everything was going smoothly was also above and beyond what we expected.

We love how our house has become our home, and when friends visit and are impressed by the look and feel, we don't hesitate to tell them it was Nest Design!

Nest Design took on a job to incorporate my parents' antique and Chinese furniture into my home in a harmonious way. The result totally exceeded my expectations. We now have a comfortable and elegant home where we entertain and relax. Even the harshest critics (the children) were blown away with the end product. 

I am thinking of overhauling my outdoor living spaces (deck) and will not hesitate to call on Nest Design to bring in their special insight so it ends up a spectacular space. 

My mother dreamt of her furniture being incorporated into my home - Nest Design bought this to reality in a seamless thoughtful way.

We hired Nest Design to develop styling concepts for our new home. We had a limited budget for new furniture and had kept a lot of our old stuff, which didn't really work in the new home. We wanted a plan to guide us as we fitted out our new home and replaced old furniture over time.

The team at Nest were very friendly and helpful. They presented us with a range of concept choices which pretty much nailed our brief first time. They walked us through the options and made it easy for us to choose the concepts and furniture which worked best for us. The team also worked hard to find good value fittings and furniture that fit within our budget. They procured a number of items on our behalf and provided guidance on finding good value items for future purchases.

They also provided fantastic advice on the best ways to use our old furniture and pictures. We are so happy with the concepts provided by Nest that we have not deviated from them at all.
I highly recommend Nest Design to anyone seeking help with styling their home.

We found Elene from Nest Design insightful, knowledgeable and professional in all our communication.  Elene listened to our ideas and our frustrations, and came back with significant alternatives that incorporated our existing furniture and adapted new, contemporary ideas that we had never contemplated.  Elene always responded to emails and phone calls and followed up all avenues.    We would highly recommend Nest Design for any homeowner looking to update and modernise any space.  Thanks again for everything Elene!

Nest Design prepared the fitout of our display suite at The Ambassador apartments, and we were delighted with the result. The furniture and detailing were professionally selected and finessed, and provided a backdrop that showcased the apartments in a stylish and yet understated way. It was very well designed for our clientele as well as for the apartments themselves. We were delighted with the service and result and would look to continue working with Nest Design on projects into the future.

We used Nest Design in the renovation of our house in Forrest ACT. The house was built in 1949, with several major additions and changes since then.  Nest Design provided guidance in the selection of colours and furnishings. Our friends and neighbours say the house looks fantastic. We owe Nest Design great thanks for this and recommend them to prospective customers.
