Nest Designs was hired by Charles Simms Development to furnish the model for his new condominium development in downtown Dayton, Ohio. Nest Designs was thrilled to have the opportunity to work with the builder in selecting the cabinetry, flooring, metal hand railing, brick facing for the walls, concrete counter-tops, glass mosaic back-splash, wall colors and all of the furnishings and accessories for the three story unit. The model is a great way to show potential buyers how they can furnish their potential spaces. The model unit was well received on the opening day ribbon cutting. Thanks to Charlie and the City of Dayton for offering the citizens of Dayton an affordable option for urban living.
The upper level of the condo features two bedrooms, a bathroom, a laundry room and a linen closet. This picture is of the Master Bedroom. I chose a gorgeous green color for the wall, a queen sized bed with a rough, natural finish and two ottomans as nightstands. Soft natural bedding and pillows with text and texture give the bedroom a very comfortable and cozy feel. Photo by Nest Designs LLC.
For fun I chose a dresser that was made from reclaimed wood. The lamp carries the wooden texture over from the bed. The dress form with the metal helmet and the vintage luggage add style and playfulness to the bedroom. Hanging the mirror on the vertical instead of the horizontal pulls all of the elements together.

Here is an image from the bathroom. I’ve used the wall vases in the past in a bathroom and they were perfect for this space too. This time is used a green grass to add a punch of color against the gray wall color. The numbered basket is perfect for holding hand towels. Photo by The Next Wave.
The main living area of the condo is located on the second floor. This image is of the wine rack located at the top of the landing. Nest Designs took an old industrial piece and converted it to a wine rack. Tour posters were framed and hung together to create a graphic statement on the back wall.

The living level is part of an open floor plan that blends the living, eating and kitchen areas together. This image focuses on the living portion. Notice how the brick wall, the patterned area rug and the grey tones in the sofa and chair add color and texture to this space. Photo by Bealer Photographic Arts.
The dining area seats four comfortably. The brick wall in the background is the perfect compliment to the galvanized iron top on the kitchen table. The storage unit behind the table adds visual interest and storage at the same time. The metal stools spin to adjust the height. They are the perfect mixture of practical and functional seating with an urban feel. The kitchen area in the model already came with the gorgeous cabinetry. Nest Designs selected the finish color, the concrete counter-top, and the glass mosaic back-splash. Photo by Bealer Photographic Arts.
