Katy Cassaw
Principal/Designer

Meet Katy:

What I love most is being able to join the client on a journey of discovering their true design vision. Many times we hear, I would have never picked that for myself but it’s perfect.  I believe your home should reflect who you are while pushing your comfort zone a bit. My personal design style marries mid-century modern with an eclectic mix of family treasures and found pieces i couldn’t live without. My home doesn’t fit into a style box. It echoes who I am and I believe yours should echo you.

Background:

Katy’s love for life is infectious. She’s never afraid to take chances, especially in her designs. She’s a genius with colors, and creates bold, unique spaces for each client. As a mama herself, she understands the importance of livable interiors and brings real life into each room she creates. With a strong background in commercial design, and a Bachelors degree in Interior Design from the Art Institutes in Colorado, Katy brings expertise, experience, and mad math skills to Nest Interiors. 

Kat Benson
Principal/Designer

Meet Kat:

For me, design is a way for people to share their story- what they love, who they are, what makes them tick. It’s a way to bring happiness and joy to peoples lives. I love getting to know our clients and creating spaces that reflect who they are. My story can be told with classic pieces, a little country flair, thrift store finds, and some modern lines.

Background:

Kats ability to listen to the client and truly interpret what they want in their home is unmatched.   Her love of fashion inspires the designs she produces with her ability to mix materials, textures and patterns in a way you would never anticipate. With her Bachelors degree in Interior Design from Park University, Kat provides an educated, fresh, curated approach to design and her passion is contagious. Not to mention, she knows every lyric of every country song and has dance moves for days!

Brie Stewart
Junior Designer

Meet Brie:

I love helping people create a space that brings them a sigh of relief upon entering. One that makes them feel like there’s no place else they would rather be. For me, this place would include a little touch of rustic textures and finishes and a nod of mid century lines, layered with the comfort of bohemian living.

Background:

Brie’s attention to detail, along with her artistic skills, ensures each design she creates is unique and original. Drawing her inspiration from natural environments, Brie brings warmth and balance to every space she touches. Her ability to blend colors and styles effortlessly, along with a Bachelor’s degree in Interior Design from Pittsburg State University, makes Brie one talented chick. Her funny personality and laid back attitude aren’t too shabby either.
