Nina Campbell, one of the world’s most influential interior designers, was the speaker at the Mint Museum Auxiliary’s Room to Bloom Decorative Arts Symposium. The sold-out event at Charlotte Country Club was sponsored by Wells Fargo Private Bank and co-chaired by the Auxiliary’s Keri Clavin and Amy Kerr.

“The Mint is so grateful to the Auxiliary for their hard work on this extraordinary event,” says Hillary Cooper, Director of Advancement & Communications for the Mint Museum. “It serves as a wonderful fundraiser and friend-raiser for the museum. The caliber of speaker they annually attract is top-notch and the beauty, color, inspiration, positive energy, and palatable enthusiasm shared for art, design, and the Mint’s mission is absolutely electric.”

Campbell — whose clients include British Royalty, Rod Stewart and Ringo Starr — delighted the crowd with her sharp wit and timeless style. After her talk, she signed copies of her newest book, Nina Campbell Interior Decoration: Elegance and Ease. Then guests were seated for a lovely luncheon.

“What an honor to hear and learn from such a legend within the interior design industry,” Hillary says. “I loved when shared that brown furniture has always been in fashion and is experiencing a Renaissance – long live Lady Campbell.”
