Over the weekend, I stumbled upon a historic New Orleans home with interiors by the legendary English designer Nicky Haslam that was featured in a 2000 issue of House & Garden. I started poking around Haslam’s website, and I also fell in love with a Notting Hill Villa he designed. So today, we will tour both homes along with several of my favorite miscellaneous images from his portfolio.
Lastly, we will take a quick peek inside Haslam’s renowned Hunting Lodge. Located 40 miles from London in Hampshire, the Hunting Lodge was built in the 16th century for King Henry VII. John Fowler purchased the Lodge in the 1940s, bringing it back to life after the deprivations of war. Upon his death in 1977, Fowler left the Lodge to the National Trust, and Haslam has leased it since 1978.
