Tina Nettlefold is a charismatic Melbournian with an unapologetic lust for life. She’s houseproud, larger than life and lives life in technicolor. Tina lives by the mantra ‘it’s never too late to do something you love, no matter your age’.
At 60, Tina is living the “empty nester’s” dream – three sons have flown the coop, she has a dashing husband by her side and great projects on the boil. She is overseeing major renovations for her clients (and her own dream coastal property), she has launched her bold new philanthropic project T.House and she is posting daily on her thriving social media feeds.
While she shares her incredible home transformations on her T.House Instagram page, she also has a large and loyal following on her personal account where she provides useful household tips; from table styling and floral arrangements, to clever cooking and cleaning tips.
Tina’s renaissance follows a period where she “found herself at a crossroads”; having left behind the advertising industry and having raised her three sons, Tina was hungry for a new mission and dream. With this came the creation of T.House, an online platform that will offer Tina’s new philanthropic collection of limited-edition homeware essentials – with 100% of profits donated to a charity that Tina believes in. Her objective: not simply to make everyday items more inspiring, but to turn everyday shopping into charitable giving.
Tina is also a professional Interior Stylist. Her bold, imaginative, light-filled interiors reflect her European heritage and extensive travels. She brings to each project her unique understanding of materials, light and space and encyclopaedic knowledge of furniture, fashion, art, objects and gardens.
She lives by the motto: “Live big, love big.” And she’s certainly doing that.
