Nicky Haslam’s work [above] first appeared here five years ago, and then again, a few weeks ago, a true testament to the timelessness of the beautiful rooms he creates. At the age of 73, he is an Interior Designer, Writer, Socialite, Cabaret Singer, and Blogger.
Born at Great Hundridge Manor in Amersham, Buckinghamshire, Haslam began his career in the 1970’s, breeding show horses, and working as a photographer, as well as designing rooms and parties for clients in Los Angeles, including Natalie Wood.
Returning to London in 1972, he was asked to decorate a townhouse for Lord Hesketh; it was also around this time that he began NH Designs, which he continues to run today . . .
Clients of NH Designs have included Ringo Starr, Mick Jagger, Rod Stewart, and Bryan Ferry; as well as designed parties for the Prince of Wales, Lord Rothschild, and Sir Evelyn and Lady de Rothschild. Nicky Haslam has been a contributing editor of British Vogue and Tatler for many years, and in December 2010, he began blogging for The Telegraph.
