Nina Campbell, pioneer of classic English comfort and style, has produced a uniquely revealing book, explaining not only her trademark touches, secret sources and techniques, but her personal inspirations and the very methods she uses in her international designs; and then, using a selection of her town and country interiors, she shows you how to use them for each individual home. In her "Decorating Notebook", Nina takes the home decorator through each stage, from bare walls to styling cushions. With hints and tips from her own diaries and notebooks, she describes how to think as a successful decorator does, and how to assess your own home as a designer would. The book covers all types of home, from tiny apartments in the city to cosy family houses outside town. Accompanied by specially commissioned photographs, with annotated 'before' and 'after' shots from start to finish, as well as invaluable questionnaires and checklists, learn how to decide what you want, what you need, and then, above all, indulge yourself with Nina's innovative, yet accessible, ideas about the best schemes to suit you.
