I’m the designer and blogger behind ‘Brandi Sawyer’! (Formerly ‘Nest of Bliss’) Chances are you clicked here to learn a little more about me – I’m thrilled!
I’m a twenty-something, bird loving, coastal girl, with a deep passion for all things interior design.
I lived in a 103-113 year old farmhouse (The age is uncertain!) in a small but beautiful village that was renovated top to bottom!
I created what was originally known as Nest of Bliss to share with our friends and family what I was up to with home renovations – and also to share with anyone who wants to create a beautiful home on a budget how they can do so. Here you will find plenty of DIY projects, inspiration, and decor. I am now preparing for my next adventure as Brandi Sawyer!
I love to see what others can’t see in a space. My goal is to help YOU realize the potential of your own home and your ability to define your own personal style – no matter the budget! 😉
A little more about me:
Growing up I was always keenly aware of my environment, and surroundings. I would go to friends’ homes and notice their cabinetry, flooring, furniture – the entire house. I knew what I liked, and I knew what I didn’t. I would constantly make suggestions to my parents about things that would make our home look better!
Something else I was keenly aware of – was how a room could make you feel. My mom knew how to create a cozy environment for every occasion. She created a lot of great memories for us kids!
Now that I’m an adult my passion is interior design and completed an interior design diploma. Apart from my blog, I am now I am currently a business student and sit as President of my Student Association. This takes up a large majority of my time, but I’m so happy to be blogging again whenever I can.
A huge part of discovering my passion was thanks to a woman named Michelle who owns a furniture painting store called Anchique. I spent a lot of time looking (okay, staring) at their pieces and was so amazed at what this woman and her team were doing, that I started to try it myself. One day when I came into the store for advice, Michelle asked if I wanted to bring in pieces and become one their furniture artists — I was SO excited! Michelle took me under her wing, and although I wasn’t able to work there long due to a move, she opened my eyes to what I truly love. I am now proud to call her a friend.
So here I am today. The budget renovation on the 100 year old farmhouse is complete. It was an amazing experience! I was so thrilled to have my work featured in a couple of magazines (This Old House and Cabin Life), write for Wicker Emporium, and work with amazing companies along the way. Join me on my next adventure!
