Vintage by Nina Giveaway

Up until now, I've only had giveaways of my redesigns.  However, when my friends at Atelier de Campagne told me they had been chosen to be the North American distributors of Nina Hartmann's book, "Vintage by Nina", I was excited about having a giveaway for my followers.  Even more so when I exchanged e-mails with the talented Nina Hartmann.

All photos in this post are the property of Nina Hartmann and Maria-Isabel Hansson

Nina Hartmann is an internationally known stylist of interiors and purveyor of vintage treasures. For the past eight years, Nina has run the vintage and antiques shop vintagebynina.com, and has a showroom in Sweden. Nina's style, love of design, and unique vintage items, have made her one of the most respected and talked about figures of design and style in Scandinavia.

Nina is also quite generous. She has autographed a copy of her stunning book for me to give away.

Page after page of loveliness.

It has over 160 pages, and 300 color photographs. Even though the giveaway copy of Nina's book is in Norwegian, the photos speak for themselves.

Vintage by Nina is being translated, and will be available in it's English version this fall.  If you would like to purchase a copy or two for yourself, send an e-mail to infoatelierdc@gmail.com. Title your email Retail VBN

If you are interested in acquiring this book for resale, contact Atelier via e-mail infoatelierdc@gmail.com for details and info. Title your e-mail, Wholesale VBN. Pre-orders need to be taken ASAP, in order to get the book to you by mid-September.
