Renowned for her contagious wit and brilliant sense of personal style, Nina Campbell is one of the world’s most respected and influential interior designers. Her list of clients and design expertise is unparalleled. Her designs appeal to both young and old and work well in both contemporary and traditional interiors.
As a child Nina spent hours helping her mother rearrange furniture in the family's home. This enthusiasm and interest in design and interiors was further developed when, at the age of 19, she went to work as an assistant to John Fowler at the prestigious Sybil Colefax & John Fowler. Shortly afterward she set up her own decorating business, where one of her first commissions was to decorate Cullen House in Banffshire, Scotland.
Nina opened a showroom and design studio on Walton Street in London’s Knightsbridge, in 1984, where she continued her fabric printing and branched out into other decorative areas. In 1990, Nina launched the first of what was to become biannual fabric, wallpaper and trimming collections internationally distributed by Osborne & Little.
The interior design side of the business continues to flourish with notable projects including The Savoy Lobby (with David Linley), The Hotel Parc Victor Hugo in Paris, The Groucho Club in London and The Campbell Apartment Bar at Grand Central Station, New York, and The New Sheridan Hotel, in Telluride Colorado. Nina continues to work on private residential projects in England, China, Jordan, Germany, and the United States.
The Nina Campbell line continued to expand with a line of bespoke furniture, which launched in 2000, a collaboration with Smallbone on a kitchen featuring her Gilty wallpaper designs, a fashion range with Ted Baker, a rug collection in association with Stark Carpets and home products including table linens, china and glassware, home fragrance, cashmere throws, travel accessories, stationery and gift wrap.
Nina has authored six books, including Elements of Design (2007) and Nina Campbell Interiors (October 2013), both of which are available at the GCMA.
Nina is a devoted mother of three and a grandmother of four.
