Who is Nezha Kanouni?

Nezha Kanouni's journey as a decorator in Marbella began in 1998, following with her own name in 2014, establishing her first interiors business at a spacious warehouse in Estepona. This venture eventually evolved into the Nezha Kanouni flagship showroom; an inspirational centre of design excellence located on Marbella's prestigious Golden Mile.

Over the decades, Nezha has brought together a talented team of professionals, each bringing unparalleled creativity, diligence, and commitment to crafting chic interior spaces in the service of their clients. Today, with an eye on the future, Nezha contemplates a new chapter for her brand, envisioning a purpose-built studio that promises to be a testament to her design legacy.

At NK, we prioritise timeless, organic, chic, and elegantly eclectic designs, always staying at the forefront of interior trends. Our conviction in this style, applied throughout decades of evolving trends, has garnered recognition in the luxury real estate realm we service. - Nezha Kanouni

The Origins of Her Passion

Hailing from the city of Rabat, Nezha's Moroccan roots have deeply influenced her design choices. The magic and diversity of Morocco have left an indelible mark on her aesthetic sensibilities. However, it was during her formative years of study in Paris that Nezha truly discovered her passion for design. The city's sophisticated flair and creative atmosphere inspired her to embark on a creative journey, which she continues to this day in Spain.
