About Nina Campbell
Nina Campbell is one of the world’s most respected and influential interior designers. Her list of clients and design expertise is unparalleled. Renowned for her contagious wit and brilliant sense of style, her designs appeal to both young and old and sit well in both contemporary and traditional interiors.
The Early years
Nina’s 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.
With her unmistakably rich and elegant colour palette, Nina’s work caught the eye of club owner Mark Birley, who asked her to redecorate the famous Annabel’s private members’ club. This relationship was so successful that they combined forces once again in 1970 when they opened Campbell & Birley, a shop in London specialising in ‘unashamed luxury’. It was here that Nina launched her signature ‘hearts’ design and this timeless motif is still available on a range of fine bone china.
