As I interviewed Sandi Wickersham of Nest and Wickersham Design, we spoke about how to design and decorate a space.
Sandi’s advice was to include pieces which represent what you love and your life, to build your own personal nest. Always lead with your heart. Use an inspiration or design board to plan your design. Include images from magazines, design books and online. Also take notes on what inspires or appeals to you, whether it be a style, color or layout.
As I browse Nest and also view Sandi’s before and after pictures of her work, I also see she blends old with the new and uses accessories and colors to express her love of the ocean. She also layers different textures within her vignettes and rustic distressed pieces speak to her childhood spent on a farm in Washington.
