Welcome to Nest by Tamara
Since 2008 I've been writing Nest by Tamara, a lifestyle blog inspired by my busy life as a NYC interior designer. I muse about all that encompasses “nesting.” Stop back to discover my favorite interior design finds and tabletop and entertaining tips, while I advise you on ways to keep creativity as your secret weapon, so you can seamlessly incorporate myriad styles and wares together in your home as you juggle a full life. I hope to help you create a stylish yet well-lived in home while putting it all into perspective. Email me at TamaraStephenson1@gmail.com


Since 2008 I have been a contributing editor for a variety of magazines and websites.  Additionally, since that time I have been writing a column I named EAST END NEST for local Hampton magazine Dan's Papers.  Please note a sampling of my written published work both for print and online below.
