Sometimes the bad things that happen to us put us directly on the path to the truly great things in our lives. That was certainly the case for Stylized Nest. On Thanksgiving day 2018, a house fire broke out in Darcey's home while her family was enjoying dinner with friends. Although the fire itself was small, the smoke damage was huge, and suddenly their family of six found ourselves needing a place to live while their home was being restored. They rented a home on Airbnb, and unbeknownst to Darcey at the time, that home would become her first paid interior residential project!
Over the next 8 months, she took the lead on re-designing her own home during the restoration process. A lifelong passion for interior design became a calling during this time, and in an effort to make her personal tragedy become a triumph in her community, she chose to source everything for the remodel of the home, as well as the replacement of the families clothing and personal belongings, from locally owned businesses. Shortly after her own home was completed, Darcey posted a photo of it on social media and the owner of the Airbnb, Jennifer, contacted her inquiring about interior design. Jennifer had contacted other designers for quotes, and serendipitously contacted Darcey just as she was contemplating starting her own interior design company. They began working together on the interior design of Jennifer’s home, following the philosophy of sourcing everything from locally owned sources.
Jennifer had spent the past 15 years as a business and marketing professional. The first product in the Stylized Nest product line, the Signature Sectional, was a couch Darcey designed for Jennifer’s home. As they began working together on Jennifer’s home, they found many talented artisans who they wanted to partner with to lend a designer’s eye and a marketing guru’s knowledge. Together, they founded Stylized Nest Market Inc, and although Jennifer has returned to running her own company, Darcey is very grateful for all the support she gave in founding the company.
It was through the desire to elevate local artisans, Stylized Nest was born. It has evolved into an online store with beautiful and luxurious, locally handcrafted home decor for all ages, along with a full service residential family home interior design company. Stylized Nest Interiors has a full team of trades ready to take design vision into locally sourced completion.
