The Fabulously Dark and Moody Style of Nadia.
This is a blog post that gives me great joy to write. You see I've known Nadia Singleton, you can find her as @artynads on Instagram, for nearly 18 months now. I was thrilled to be invited to this fantastic home for tea last November and I can confirm that its every bit as gorgeous as it looks on these little squares.
Nadia, took pity on me while stuck in a hotel room in Leicester and very kindly invited me around for a chat, wine and dinner. Ignoring my Husband’s words of "you've never met her, text me every hour, text me when you get to the hotel" kind of worry (did he think I was meeting an axe murderer?), I gleefully jumped in a taxi and popped over. We had a lovely evening, only marred slightly by my need to work the next day and therefore copious amounts of wine and late nights were out, and Nadia was a funny and warm host and a great cook to boost.
So, this was my first Instagram visit, there have been many more since, but what a great first choice for my very first home tour. You are in for a treat, dark and glamorous, moody and fun and most importantly designed by her, you will see why Nadia has such an Instagram famous home.
Although well- known on Instagram, many of you may not know that Nadia runs a 3D printing business that produces prototypes for product designers, jewellery designers, artists, and sculptors. Before that, Nadia worked as a scenic artist and prop maker, painting backdrops for theatres around the country. Nadia is married to Mark who is a financial adviser and encourages her passion for expressing herself in the home. Together they have two teenage sons. Their youngest son loves math and science, while their oldest son is artistic, creative, and is also autistic.
Like many of us, Nadia's house is an ongoing project, which started life as a small two bed house and has over the years grown into a four-bed house, with additions and changes of their own, from making the space work for her family, to literally using it as a canvas for her extensive art collection, Nadia’s house is a great example of how with a little bit of imagination, you can create a unique and cosy family home.
So I hope you agree that Nadia's house was a great first tour for my blog and it is my thank you to her for her generosity of spirit in rescuing me from another night in a bland beige hotel room, instead filling my night with seafood risotto (delicious) and a small amount of wine and lots of fun conversation.
thanks for sharing your home
