ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Nina Malkin is a writer and editor who has contributed to national magazines and websites for more than 30 years. Her interest in the “shelter” category coincided with the purchase of an 1893 brownstone that needed lots of TLC. She has since written about design, decorating, and DIY for Good Housekeeping, This Old House, Ebony, and ArchitecturalDigest.com. Nina is an avid, keen-eyed thrift shopper whose home is largely done in what she calls “the Arts & Crap” style!
