A STA­PLE OF THE HOME AND DE­SIGN SCENE IN BAL HAR­BOUR, SARA COLOMBO TAKES HER TAL­ENTS TO BRICK­ELL.

Fans of Sara Colombo’s Nest Casa bou­tique can now shop for her cu­rated col­lec­tion of de­signer gifts and home ac­ces­sories in Brick­ell as well as at her pop­u­lar Bal Har­bour Shops show­room.

The globe-trot­ting for­mer model re­cently opened a 1,000-square­foot store on the sec­ond level of Brick­ell City Cen­tre, where she will con­tinue to show­case her core brands of lux­ury ac­ces­sories from some of the world’s top de­sign­ers, such as fur­ni­ture and dec­o­ra­tive ob­jects from Arc­a­horn, handmade can­dles from Baobab, braided leather goods by Riviere Italy, sig­na­ture table­ware by Her­mès La Table, and crys­tal by Saint-louis and Bac­carat. New prod­uct lines in­clude Cire Trudon scented can­dles and Richard Gi­nori table­ware.

“We wanted to add an­other lo­ca­tion to serve the south­ern por­tion of Mi­ami in­stead of just the north and Bal Har­bour,” says Colombo, who founded Nest Casa in 2008. “We are su­per happy in Bal Har­bour, but there is a large pop­u­la­tion in Mi­ami [that wants to shop closer to home].”

The open­ing of Brick­ell City Cen­tre pre­sented an op­por­tu­nity. “They did a re­ally nice job cu­rat­ing the ten­ant mix,” Colombo says.

This year, she’s also ex­pand­ing Nest Casa’s gift registry. “A bri­dal party can come in, and we do ei­ther a catered Cham­pagne cock­tail party or break­fast, and they can choose the items for their registry. It’s for all those re­ally spe­cial pieces that brides want that maybe they wouldn’t buy for them­selves.” nest­casa.com
