Los Angeles Showhouse

This exciting project involved the decoration of a suite of rooms in one of the most iconic houses in Los Angeles that included a bedroom, bathroom and massage room. Built in 1928 for the oil magnate Edward Doheny whose portrait dominates the elegant scheme that Nina created for a show house event.

Decorated with fabrics and wallpapers from her own collections, the rooms reflect the formal architecture of the house but also have a relaxed, luxurious feel thanks to a mix of satin bed hangings and walls lined with a simple paisley design. In the bedroom, the look is softened with rush matting that lends an almost rustic feel. Penglai, her bold floral has been used for blinds and upholstery and reflect the English-style gardens that surround the house.
