Welcome to our blog!

We are Natalie & Maya, and this is our blog. If you are new, welcome! We are very happy you are here. We are two designer ladies living in the city of Toronto who are passionate about design, intrigued by fashion and love food.

Why Nest? Nest for us was a way to describe what people do in their home.  Every one’s “nest” is different we had a feeling that people would appreciate the word because everyone could connect with that idea. People, live, dwell and nest.

Our design business is Nest Design Studio, which is new and we are very proud of! This blog is just to give you insight to our every day lives, our adventures, our travels and our inspirations. We really hope you like what you see here…we love to share!

Please feel free to contact us at: info@nestdesignstudio.ca and follow us! We are forever grateful for all the love!

  1. I would like to say it is one supreme pleasure to stumble upon you both! The “Cheerful Retreat” section of your design site is deliciously what my “nest” dreams are made of. What happy images to witness so early in the morning!
