UGallery | SEPTEMBER 2016

We are very excited to introduce “The My Chic Nest Collection” created by our special guest curator Anna Kesten, co-founder of My Chic Nest, the east coast based ecommerce furniture company. Since its founding in 2012, the company has been on a mission to offer personal, stylish furniture to customers with a wide range of budgets. As an intern in the interior design world, she noticed how expensive and inaccessible furniture can be. So, she was inspired to make a change with her own line of furniture. To Anna, the design elements of any room should have their own unique personality and style. With My Chic Nest’s many options for furniture – over 60 unique designs that can be upholstered in over 75 fabric options – Anna emphasizes her value of personal expression. Each client can cultivate a personal style when designing his or her space. With a recent move Westchester, New York, Anna has had the opportunity to express her own style as she designs her new home with furniture from My Chic Nest and art from UGallery. “[Art] can complete a room and is such a perfect way to showcase one’s personal style,” says Anna. Anna’s “new favorite piece of art,” hanging above her sofa, is a photograph she purchased on UGallery, called Still Waters by Miles Hannaford.

Dallas Wardrobe and My Chic Nest| AUGUST 2016

After months of looking and feeling quite frustrated, a sweet friend told me that I should look at My Chic Nest for a bed. She told me that they have just about every style bed and the best part was that could could pick exactly what you wanted. Oddly enough that seemed to be the biggest problem when we were bed shopping. We would find a shape but would HATE the wood/fabric. To me, there is no point in spending so much money on something just to have to buy fabric and stain the wood. I decided to check out My Chic Nest in hopes to find something that would work perfectly for us. You guys, the minute I got on the My Chic Nest website and went to the beds category I found our bed. I saw the My Chic Nest Deborah bed and knew it was ‘the one’. I loved the combination of wood and fabric as well as the shape of the head and foot boards. Oh and the fact that I could literally pick any stain and fabric made it a home run.

Design Sponge | JULY 2016

The "envelope" of a renovation project is critical to its success. Mona of Mona Ross Berman Interiors in Philadelphia first sorts out the floor, walls, lighting, windows, hardware, doors, and other finishes in a home before focusing on bolder decorative touches. "Many people assume that furniture and accessories are what designers focus on to make a space work," she explains, "But really, I always start with the envelope because if that’s not working, nothing will look right." Her firm helped their clients — a family of six, including four daughters — transform their two-bedroom pied-a-terre at The Dorchester overlooking Rittenhouse Square. Built in 1980, the apartment needed a complete overhaul to give it the modern look the couple desired.

The Fashionable Hostess | MAY 2016

While I have shared a few glimpses of my new bedroom in past blog posts or on my instagram, I am officially ready to reveal the finished look on the blog with our new bed, new bedside tables, and new table lamps completing the look. So, welcome to my cozy bedroom haven!! Our beautiful velvet baby blue bed comes from My Chic Nest and perfectly enough is named “The Amanda Bed” {a fab coincidence!!}!! My Chic Nest has a wide range of stunning beds and headboards, especially if you love a whimsical feel, and with so many fabrics, colors, and details to choose from, each pieces feels truly one-of-a-kind. I wan’t sure if I made the right choice when ordering the blue, but from the moment it arrived I fell in love because it completely transformed our room! {And I also can’t get over how perfectly the color matches our Boll & Branch organic bedding – you may remember that I featured it in this post from our Nashville house.}

Mckenna Bleu | MAY 2015

Coming from a girl who loves color, sometimes when it comes to home decor less is more. While designing our new bedroom here in DC my first priority was finding the perfect headboard. I fell in love with this (My Chic Nest) white tufted headboard from Candelabra, I’m not going to lie, if it wasn't for the hubby you know this hot pink one would have been the winner. The majority of these headboards are completely customizable in the terms of size and color options, love that! I couldn’t be happier with our choice in the classic white and for now I’m loving the clean and simple look... Read More

Some of Alexandra Kaehler's current obsessions include My Chic Nest's Sheila headboard: "My favorite ready-made headboard- clean, tailored, and a great price". Kaehler says. ... Read More

Sponsor Spotlight: My Chic Nest | NOV 05, 2012

Back in early 2010, I blogged about Anna Kohler's stylish home after seeing it in Renovation Style. Her home was chic, modern, and perfectly tailored. It continues to be an inspiration today, so you can imagine my excitement when I recently heard from Anna who had contacted me to share the news that she was launching her own furniture line! My Chic Nest is a reflection of Anna's timeless, glamorous style. Each piece is special and unique—perfect for creating one's own signature look. After working in interior design for several years, Anna knew how expensive it could be to have custom furniture made.
