Her enthusiasm and interest in design and interiors was developed when, at the age of nineteen, she went to work for John Fowler at the prestigious Sybil Colefax & John Fowler. Shortly afterwards she set up her own decorating business, where one of her first commissions was to design a castle in Scotland and Annabel’s private members’ club, Berkeley Square, London, in her unmistakably elegant and rich colour palette.
Nina’s design philosophy is apparent in all her works even if the projects are all very different. She is meticulous about detail and how the property is to be lived in moving forward is the most important aspect at the outset. She focuses largely on both comfort and practicality and brings a sense of her effortless style and wit to each job whilst maintaining the personal elements of the client. Her style is contemporary with a classic twist.
