TWO FRIENDS WITH A LOVE OF ALL THINGS DESIGN
Nest Home Staging & Design is owned and operated by Jamie Van Landuyt and Christine Masur. Jamie and Christine started out as neighbors, became fast friends and are now successful business partners. Their shared love for home design, keen business sense and combined years of experience in the areas of sales, fashion, art, event planning, interior design, marketing, and customer service make them a powerhouse team!
Award-winning artist Jamie Van Landuyt has had a passion for drawing, painting, and color since childhood. From a very young age, she wanted to be a painter. She attended Ohio University, received her Bachelor's of Fine Arts, and graduated with honors.
After graduation, she worked as a graphic artist, then embarked on a sales career that lasted almost ten years. She married and moved to Cincinnati to raise a family. In 2010, she realized a life- long dream when she became a resident artist at Essex Studios in Walnut Hills.
Her abstract art has an emphasis on color, texture, and especially layering. Her work is represented by several galleries and is included in private and corporate collections in North America.
Christine has been a designer since her earliest memories of her childhood attentiveness to her bedroom style and affectionate arrangement of her stuffed animal collection! Fast forward through life, Christine has always been a design hobbyist inside her homes and outside in her gardens-she is passionate about how spaces look and equally important-how they feel, always striving to tell her and her family's story through their home.
The leap into entrepreneurship and co-owning Nest Home Staging + Design, has given Christine the more formal and credible platform to support clients with their staging and design projects. Christine believes her strong foundation of business with an emphasis on marketing and management infused with her enthusiasm for design, provides her the decisive skills to avail herself to her clients for all their design needs!
