Discover our Classic Nina Simone:

In our Nina Simone bedroom, the colors have a striking and subjective connotation.

The white and black colors are a tribute to her fight against racism; while the gilding on the headboard and lamps are a reference to the luxury and ostentation that characterizes jazz culture.

In this room, a direct reference to music could not be missing, materialized by vinyl, a decorative piece that does not go unnoticed in the room.

Meet the artist Nina Simone...

Eunice Kathleen Waymon, also known by her stage name Nina Simone, was a pianist, singer, songwriter, and civil rights activist for black Americans.

Nina Simone has implemented a wide range of musical styles, including classical, jazz, blues, folk, R&B, gospel, and pop.

Her demanding character and her conviction for the equal rights of black Americans influenced her music. A civil rights message began to be present in Simone's recording repertoires.

Some of her main works:

  • I love you, Porgy;
  • My baby just cares for me;
  • Mississippi goddam;
  • Sinnerman;
  • I put a spell on you;
  • Feeling good.


Musical styles: Pop, R&B, Blues, Soul, Jazz, Folk, Gospel, classical music.

"You don't have to live next to me. Just give me my equality." - Nina Simone
