A Day with Nicky Haslam

Portrait by Vanessa Garwood

Today I had the great pleasure of spending an afternoon with none other than Nicky Haslam and his amazing creative director Colette van den Thillart. How lucky can a girl get?

Nicky's legacy, talent and influence as one of Britain’s ultimate interior designers is undeniable. Not to mention, in his spare time, he is an actor, artist, cabaret singer, book reviewer, art editor, memoirist, literary editor and he features on both Vanity Fair and GQ’s best-dressed lists!

But the best thing about Nicky is, well, him...he is a genuinely nice person and fun conversationalist. All in all it was a near perfect day. Thank you Nicky. Below are a few photos that I snapped in his office. Full profile to come.

And a very special thank you to my friend Susan Moolman for making the introduction!

I love Colette's chosen "Design Family"

It was brilliant seeing you again, Ronda! And what a lovely looooooong lunch that was.

Looking forward to plenty more in the near future (she crosses her fingers).

Me too - a little green with envy! He is one of my favorites - in design and in general - true renaissance man - looking forward to the profile! said...

Um. I think I want your life. How utterly fantastic that you get to soak up the essence of some of the industry's most talented and interesting people. Reading you is like a continuing education course, only in real life. Thanks!

I utterly love his work, even if he does think that Scottish accents are common!
