Description

A Designer’ s Life is a fascinating insight into the glamorous world of Nicky Haslam, one of the UK’ s leading interior designers, who is renowned for  his flamboyant, opulent and elegant style.   Nicky grew up in Great Hundridge Manor in Buckinghamshire and was educated at Eton. After a period working for Diana Vreeland at American Vogue in the 1960s, Nicky went on to become Editor of Show magazine before moving to Arizona to breed horses. He returned to England in the early 1970s and began his career as an interior decorator in earnest, setting up his company, NH Design, in the late 1980s. Since then he has decorated the houses of rock stars and royalty, aristocrats and artists alike – many of whom have become close personal friends. Always on the receiving end of countless invitations, Nicky has designed the dé cor for some of the most glamorous parties for everyone from the Prince of Wales to Paris Hilton.

With its fresh, lively and spontaneous approach that reflects Nicky’ s charisma, wit and charm, A Designer’ s Life reveals the influences, associations, inspirations and achievements that have been so pivotal throughout the course of his life and work.
