It is clear Nina draws her inspiration from positively transforming people’s lives. Her expertise in her field is outstanding, and her ability to provide a vision of what could be and transform it into reality is amazing



To transform a long narrow room that had formerly been two rooms and to disguise a 9” beam cutting across the centre of the room.


The family were happy to support the scheme as soon as they saw the proposed design and materials for the room.


The scheme for the room was based on a natural theme with a colour scheme of linen and claret with a little olive, and reliant on texture rather than pattern which created a quiet relaxing room mainly for winter use.

The project began with new wiring for lights and power points, radiators were replaced, the ceiling and walls were freshly plastered, and the floor was refinished and levelled ready for the carpet to be laid. The fireplace surround was retained and given a hand-painted finish with some silver gilt touches to give some of the mouldings a lift.

The team decorated the room, assembled and mounted the ceiling feature which housed some of the lighting for the scheme, and the carpet was fitted before the furniture arrived.

Furniture included a specially ordered sofa to fit the narrow width of the room and to accommodate a family of 5. My drawings included a bespoke pair of cherrywood cabinets (a cocktail cabinet and a closed bookcase), both designed along a musical theme to reflect the family’s interests and handmade by my joiner. In addition, I designed the nest of cherry wood tables that were also handmade.

I also selected the artwork from the family’s existing collection and determined where the pieces would hang.
