About Nest

Michael Reper is the visionary, entrepreneur and principal designer behind Nest, Portland’s boutique interior design showroom.

Our Story

Michael grew up in a creative household, his mother was a pianist and an accomplished seamstress, so Michael spent his childhood surrounded by music and textiles, his playground was the rows of fabric stores. He began designing as a teen, for neighbors and family, so it’s no surprise that he would ultimately launch his own firm and design ambitious projects from a domed compound in Tunisia to historical hacienda's in the Yucatan. His work has been published extensively, 22 times to be exact, including the cover story of Ambientes in April 2010 which was the first time an American interior designer was featured on the magazine’s cover. While he’s renowned for his talent for residential design, he’s well versed in commercial design as well, with experience designing everything from houses of worship to strip clubs.

As a deep believer in the power of community and giving back, Michael donates his time and resources to multiple local organizations and sits on the board of directors for both Portland Center Stage and Heritages School of Interior Design.

Perhaps even more important than the philanthropy, accolades and accomplishments is Michael’s deep talent for curating amazing spaces that create joy--spaces that nurture, impress and function beautifully--spaces that are memorable and timeless. He has a magical touch that enables him to effortlessly create beauty in the world. It’s his job and he loves it.
