Wiltshire Country House

The homes that Nina decorates take their lead from the tastes and interests of their clients, their architectural style - and also their surroundings. This farmhouse in Wiltshire is decorated in a palette inspired by the rolling country that surrounds it; a range of greens in varying intensity, rich neutrals and soft sky blues run throughout the house, creating a strong link between inside and out.

The drawing room is a seductive mix of formality and comfort, while the kitchen is as beautiful an example of English country kitchen as you will find, complete with an Aga and wheel back chairs. A small sitting room combines a rich earthy red with a plaid carpet. 

Upstairs, the bathroom offers the luxury of elegant upholstery with the practicality of capacious, beautifully-designed storage. Elsewhere, a guest room has been transformed with yet more clever cabinetry; the double bed is set into a wall of fitted cupboards that include a handy niche for books and a glass of water.

Behind the bed, a wall-mounted light illuminates night time reading. Instead of solid doors, there are fabric-lined panels behind chicken wire, a combination that adds depth and a charmingly rustic touch. At the window are curtains with deep pelmets that add not only add pattern and cosseting warmth but also enhance the feeling of height.
