Hello

I'm Kasey Tam, an Interior Designer and shop owner in the Yellow City of Texas...that's Amarillo for all you non-Texans out there. I graduated college in 2008, during one of the worst times in American history to hit the job market. The plunge resulted in me returning to my hometown shortly after graduation, but upon reflection, I'd say things worked out pretty great for me! I'm currently the proud owner + operator of NEST Interiors & Construction Inc. as well as The NAT Antiques. My brick and mortar shop houses over 100 vendors, myself included (from6thcollective), and can be found on the small stretch of Route 66 that passes through our small city. My design aesthetic has been called many things over the past decade, but the one I think reflects my style the most is Modern Folk. I absolutely love when good design creates conversation, reflection, and most importantly inspires.

Amarillo native Kasey Robinson [Tam] has the most charmingly whimsical home decor and knickknack shop in town. The creative window and floor displays rival Anthropologie’s, and green-minded must-haves abound.
— Texas Monthly
A soothing antidote to the vrooming Panhandle vibe. Inside the Austin-esque store find antique mirrors, concrete elephants, and reclaimed signs that would have Ed Ruscha fumbling for his Am Ex. Owner Kasey Robinson [Tam] features plenty of cute gifts similar to Anthropologie offerings, but the one-of-a-kind vintage finds are hard to beat.
