Movers & Shakers

Movers & Shakers: Nell Diamond

April 8, 2016


Nell Diamond set out to launch Hill House Home, a collection of modern sheet sets, pillows and pajamas, after discovering a gap in the market when it came to bedding. “I’ve been a bedding person for as long as I can remember. I really love beds and bedding and my mom collected beautiful vintage linens for a long time and passed them down to me,” says Nell.
“When I graduated, I set out to mimic what I grew up with and I couldn’t find anything that was really well designed, where the raw materials were really well made and at a great price point.”

“I want people to have bedrooms that they walk into and say, ‘This is my dream.’”
- Nell Diamond

Pulling inspiration from her favorite artists, architects, movies and television shows (check out the Hill House Home Pinterest to see some of her favorites) as well as the legacy pieces in her own collection, Nell has designed a range of fresh, irreverent bedroom essentials that will transform your bedroom and sleeping style.
