In her position as Creative Director with London-based NH Design, Colette van den Thillart is the key complement to founder Nicky Haslam. She is uniquely positioned to build on Haslam’s aesthetic and transcend popular trends to express a confident maturity of taste and mastery of scale – on a global level.

Colette moved to London from Canada in 2000 after obtaining an AAS Interior Design degree from The International Academy of Design in Toronto and completed a Masters of Art Degree in Decorative Arts at London’s Wallace Collection. She is also an alumni of the Attingham Trust. In 2003 she met Nicky Haslam and the synergy was immediate. Under their joint guidance, NH Design has taken great strides into modern design, mixing the deeply serious, grand and impressive with charm and wit, reinforcing what has become known as the NH Design aesthetic. The duo and their team have secured clients in the English countryside and London, Toronto, New York, Montreal, Morocco, New Orleans, Denmark, Curacao, Barbados, St Jean Cap Ferrat and Monaco and Moscow.

Colette is currently working on an 18th Century estate in Denmark, a heritage house in New Orleans and a 10,000 sq ft apartment in Monaco.
