Interior Design: Nina Campbell Interior Decoration Elegance & Ease

When I first became interested in interior design, Nina Campbell’s Decorating Notebook, was one of my earliest decorating books.  She revealed “the trademark touches, the secret sources and techniques and the methods she uses to create her timeless sophisticated interiors.” I was hooked…

Equally conversant with formal traditional or tailored contemporary styles Ms Campbell, “the doyenne of interior design” is highly regarded for her classic, yet contemporary elegant interiors.

Her latest book Nina Campbell Interior Decoration: Elegance and Ease published by Rizzoli showcases the most recent design projects, with recurring themes that include Ms Campbell’s signature mix of antiques, artwork, custom finishes and inspired fabric combinations. She brings it all together for her inimitable take on the “elegance and ease” of classic British interior design today.

 Love the layering of drapes, rug, luxe fabrics, Asian screen, mirrored wall & fireplace - relying on texture rather than pattern so the room doesn't look overdone
