About Nadine

Award-winning colour designer and the Director of DNA Designs, Nadine has been on the leading edge of interior design for more than 10 years. Also an educator at the prestigious International School of Colour and Design, Nadine deeply believes in one thing: colour changes everything.

From a young age, the magic of colour has been integral in Nadine’s life. With a father in the colour industry and an avid creative for a mother, she fell in love with colour and began chasing creativity and seeking freedom of expression early on. The lens of colour became her window into understanding the world, and that passion has only grown since then.

One does not simply think colour – one is moved by it. Colours whisper to us, they sing to us and they shout. Elegant, beautiful, bold and brilliant, colours have the power to inspire new ideas, comfort when times are tough, scare us in our darker moments and remind us of our most sacred memories. Colour shows us what it means to be truly alive.

Nadine believes colour shows us how to live our best lives. As our lives shift and change, so too do the colours around us. Exposing ourselves to the wonders of colour from inspirations around the world can provide us with the self-awareness to gain more insight into ourselves.

By travelling and experiencing the great colours of our world, and learning about the true nature and science of colour and design, we put ourselves in touch with our own personal creativity and inspiration.
