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. 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 and Annabel’s private members’ club, Berkeley Square, London, in her unmistakably elegant and rich colour palette.
2015 marked twenty-five years of Osborne & Little’s collaboration with Nina Campbell as world-wide distributor of her fabrics, wallpapers and trimmings.
The Nina Campbell collections are varied, amongst them, small geometric upholstery fabrics like the Umbria Todi with a background of small chenille diamonds overlaid with a check of contrasting colour in relief; the elegant Coromandel Meredith that features Nina’s classic damask is refreshed in soft, contemporary colourings printed on pure brushed cotton; the fabulous Belzoro Damask; the gentle Montacute botanical that features an Elizabethan style floral that has been given a contemporary treatment, printed on linen-union; the Cathay Penglai with its glimpse of informality in the Imperial Garden this charming large-scale print on linen union is inspired by the effortless brushstrokes of Chinese ink wash paintings where cheerful birds are depicted amidst blossom laden branches, named after an ancient legend set in a garden.
