We created Curated Nest Interiors to deliver function-driven design that supports and enhances the modern family lifestyle, without sacrificing aesthetics or quality. Over the years with clients and with our own kids, we’ve seen first hand how hectic family life can be. Curated Nest Interiors was founded as a direct response to this, aiming to solve design problems while creating beautiful, harmonious spaces for families of all types.
Erin and Lina first bonded over beautiful designs and burritos as sleep-deprived new moms at a mommy meetup in Brooklyn, NY. We had an instant design connection, and with our 20+ combined years of experience in interior design and client-focused business, forming a partnership was easy.
why we are different
Building on this experience with kid's design and working with wonderful families on projects ranging from full home renovations, kitchen and bath designs, and décor and styling, we knew we had created a special niche that had to be shared. Thus, Curated Nest Interiors was born. The heart of our approach lies in optimizing family living through function-driven design, combined with a special knowledge and sensitivity to spaces for your little ones.
And as a full service design firm, we don't just stop at design. You'll receive the benefit of our expert project management, plus access to our network of tried-and-true specialists such as contractors, custom upholsterers, professional organizers, and baby-proofers to fulfill your project--a seamless experience catering to your busy life...so you can focus on soccer and ballet.
