Just a little bit quirky


Here at Romantiques we're very lucky to be part of such a dynamic and creative team, and our collaboration with Sydney- based interior stylist Dita Nicholls is just one of the reasons why doing what we do is so constantly gratifying when it comes to creating.

Offering Dita's service- D.N.D Designs- to clients that are looking to go that extra step with their interiors and special pieces is always something we do with enthusiasm, and if you think Dita is primarily concerned with the function of making a space look and feel attractive- think again. If the selection of self- designed, beautifully quirky cushions we have on display in the studio are anything to go by, you'll know that Dita's talents and eye for detail are limitless.

Hailing from a little village 45 minutes from Brno, the second largest city in the Czech Republic and also one of the most beautiful and historic places to visit in Europe, Dita credits her sense of style and fondness of rich colour palettes to the European approach of decadence and decoration, reinforced by constant inspiration trips to the jewels of the continent. And Dita practices what she preaches, living the way she styles- playing with pattern, form and colour for dramatic effect in her own home, letting the European influence of taupes, olive greens, mochas and reds do the talking for her.

But whatever your personal style, Dita has the connections, and the imagination, to source and come up with what you're looking for. As well as being able to think up such sassy designs and colour combinations for soft furnishings and lampshades, with colour palettes that range from soft and subtle to acid shocking, Dita prides herself in her ability to create rooms with character and comfort, matching beautiful furniture, artwork and wallpapers to achieve whatever the desired effect.
