Hello! I am Nina, and Nina’s Apartment is my interior design business and style blog. I was born in the Netherlands and have lived in Scotland since 2005, working mainly in the creative industries and marketing.
I love old stuff. Things with a soul and a story to tell. I have been surrounding myself with nice old things since I was a kid, been blogging since 2008 and started sourcing and selling vintage since 2011. I have always had a strong resentment over waste as well as over mass produced, throwaway (plastic) products. Buying second-hand or at least lasting quality just feels like a wholesome thing to do. This is something I try to encourage in my designs.
I am a creative being, always journaling, finding inspiration – online and offline – and am usually working on my next project.
I have a Masters in art and architecture history and a passion for mid 20th century design and the Scandinavian style. I loves textiles, ceramics, treasure hunting and traveling. Most of all I enjoy helping people, adding some creative sparkle to their homes, find a beautiful statement piece, redesign a room or two and inspire through my blog.
What else? I am a mum of two noisy little boys, married to Glenn and an eternal optimist who loves life. My goal? I want to make this world a little bit more beautiful, one room at the time.
