nina-liddleNina Liddle Design

Originally from Bergen County, New Jersey, Nina has been a year-round resident of Nantucket since 1992. She lives on the island with her husband Matt (head of the upper school at the Nantucket New School), their 9-year-old daughter Maggie, along with their two golden retrievers and a cat named Louie. When she is not designing interiors, Nina loves to spend her time at the beach, entertaining at home, and volunteering at Nantucket Safe Harbor for Animals with her daughter.

Nina’s years on Nantucket, beginning as a child in the summer, gave her a close up knowledge of authentic Nantucket design. She designed and built/renovated three of her own homes, which put her on her path to start her design business.  Nina opened her design business in 2007. Before devoting herself to design, Nina spent 12 years in the real estate business on Nantucket which gives her a unique perspective for clients designing to rent or sell.

Nina searches for beauty that combines contemporary and classic elements into a timeless environment. She believes that comfort and elegance can exist together. Nina has developed a design approach that blends colors, textures and elements of the past with modern and chic themes of today. She is drawn to neutral backgrounds that include a surprise of color, enhancing the overall look. Nina’s distinctive style draws inspiration from the natural environment, effortlessly melding sophistication and warmth.

Nina establishes longstanding relationships with her clients, often working with them on both their on and off-island homes. She has decorated numerous residences on Nantucket, in addition to projects in Princeton, NJ, Boston, MA, and Riverside, CT. She has also decorated three inns: two on Nantucket, and one in Chatham. Nina knows that a designer works together with a client to achieve success. The result then matches the experience of the designer with the dreams of the client for beautiful rooms.
