One of the foremost interior designers today, Nina Campbell’s almost fifty-year career exemplifies the best of English interior design, and this eponyymous book masterfully illustrates her love of pared-down traditionalism, sumptuous textiles, clear colour, and, above all, comfort.
English style is one of the most enduring decorating idioms as demonstrated by the success of books on the works of Colefax and Fowler, Mario Buatta, David Hicks, and Mark Hampton. Campbell, the doyenne of the look, adds freshness with vibrant colours, whimsical textiles, and an informal elegance, and this book is sure to be an essential addition to design libraries on masters of the field.
A portfolio of her own London residences, from past decades to present day, establishes her mastery of designing for style and ease, while images from recent projects shows her versatility working in contexts as different as a hotel in Germany, pieds-à-terre in New York and Rome, a town house in London, and a designer show house in Los Angeles. Complementing the beautiful images of her work, a biographical essay (the first of its kind in a book about Campbell) follows the designer from her beginnings, to her stunning interior design work of the past few years.
