Nisha Stevens is an award-winning London-based interior designer. Her style marries antiques and world art with clean lines, whilst always incorporating accents of rich colour and pattern. She is passionate about horticulture, particularly indoor/outdoor spaces and using plants to bring life to interiors. Her projects include residential schemes as well as commercial work for the British Film Institute at their Southbank cinematheque and a yoga and surf retreat in Sri Lanka.
Nisha was invited to bring her unique creative vision to Grand Designs Live's 2016 exhibition. She designed and installed her winning room set, based on Max's bedroom in the classic children's book Where the Wild Things Are. The fantastical design was praised by the judges as having captured the sense of imagination of a young child.
The daughter of two designers, Nisha further developed her keen eye for design whilst studying interior design at KLC School of Design, graphic design at Central St Martins, and landscape architecture at the University of Greenwich. She has worked for McCrum Interior Design for several years, contributing to many of their projects.
Nisha is also one half of creative collaboration the Broken Hearts, whose spectacular DJ sets were described by The Independent as “a Hollywood musical on hallucinogenics.” Together they have graced stages across the globe from Paris to New York and Hong Kong for the likes of Selfridges, the V&A, Whitney Museum and Louis Vuitton. Their weekly primetime radio show on Jazz FM ran for over 3 years, earning them a Radio Academy Award nomination, and was described by The Guardian as “a cool swing music show hosted by two vintage style icons.” To find out more, visit their website.
