We couldn’t be more excited to be working with the design guru himself – Aly Velji, on the interior design of the common spaces, lobby and interior selections.

We have hit the ground running working on all the details that are going to make your new place look so smart and can’t help but give you a sneak peek!

Smart Living:

Inspired by Nest’s Smart Living – Aly was excited to design a space that promotes a healthy and green living lifestyle.

Flock Together:

“We wanted the common spaces to feel less like a lobby space and more of a meeting hub. An area where people can come and work or just hang out. We are proposing something quite edgy and unique, with the use of concrete, black metal and light wood tones and living green walls.”

On that Neon Trend:

“We are all over neon lights and think this would be the perfect lighting accent to include in the space. Nest is all about green living so we are proposing something quite edgy and unique such as a saying that helps instil that green living motto. Something people will come in and see everyday to remind them that a greener life is a better life!”

Act Natural:

“Keeping things as natural as possible with the use of concrete, black metal and light wood tones for the millwork. Additions of glass partitions with black metal to create a factory look but also help to filter the light throughout the common areas. We also love green walls, but something with a little more edge.”

Meet the Expert:

If TV isn’t your thing – let us introduce you to Aly. This design superstar is a familiar face in the Canadian television industry, appearing on shows including “Designer Superstar Challenge”, “The Style Dept”, “My RONA Home” and is a resident design expert on “The Marilyn Denis Show”.

Aly’s not just a pretty face – He has received numerous awards for his designs and most recently was shortlisted for the 2016 Designer of The Year Awards from Western Living Magazine.

For the last 11 years Alykhan Velji’s boutique design has been known for bringing an energetic flavour to the Canadian design scene. Known as a master of mixing design styles, patterns and textures, he loves to add a hint of the unexpected to each of his projects-ensuring that each design is personalized, goes beyond the current trends, and stands the test of time.

We can’t wait to see his vision come to life at Nest!
