Meet Belinda


Nest Design Studio was founded by Australian based Belinda Nihill, a mother of 3 little boys.

Bel found a passion for Interior Design in her early teens when her parents gave her creative license to paint and decorate her bedroom.  Long gone now, that blue sponged wall with sunflower border (hey, it was the 1990’s after all) is still etched in her mind.

After working as a qualified Interior Designer for over 15 years, Bel created Nest following the arrival of her first child, just over 6 years ago.  Since then she has designed over 300 rooms which cater for the youngest members of her clients homes.  Having worked with so many families across the globe – Australia, AUS, France, Ireland, Dubai, Canada and more – Bel is able to create the perfect space for your little one, no matter where you live!  This flexibility with Bel’s design services means that the process can be undertaken online, as well as offering traditional design services coming to visit you at your home.

Whether it’s a nursery, bedroom or playroom, it’s important for Bel to create a space where your  little one can dream, play and grow.  She understands that clients want those rooms to not only look good, but to also be very functional.  With three little boys of her own, she knows only too well how quickly a space can turn from organised and pretty to a disaster zone.

Over the years, Bel has gained a loyal and engaging number of followers across social media and prides herself on her extensive industry knowledge and product sourcing know-how.  Finding pieces that are on trend, but certainly not following the crowd ensures she can create a space that is perfectly suited to each owner.

As well as showcasing her work in over 20 magazines worldwide, and via a variety of other media outlets, Bel has most recently released her first book – Beautiful Babies’ Rooms – giving people the opportunity to learn more about the design process and see how a space for baby comes together.  She was also included in the House & Garden Top 50 rooms of 2015.

In addition to her design work, Bel also offers a styling service and works with a number of brands to produce imagery for their social media campaigns.  Bel’s unique eye and design savvy ensures that she is able to capture the perfect visual for any brand.
