ME, MY HOUSE & I - MY FAVOURITE PLACE TO BE

Took me a lot of time to decide whether or not to share my favorite space of all - our casa in Dubai, but finally decided why not! Its a culmination of our various elements of our lives, who we are, how we move about in a space and use it.

More pictures to follow of the garden and other rooms and how it all came to be :)

Enjoy!

INSPIRATION FOR AN  UPCOMING PROJECT.

So I’ve been assigned on a project where I have to work on classics and integrate them in a modern interior. A bit challenging to my overall simplistic taste, but I’m willing to take the challenge. Keep your eyes here for the project milestones :)

BEFORE & AFTER: ETHNIC CHIC HOME

Finally got the chance to post this lovely before & after transformation that I recently worked on for lovely spirited couple.

Their style is very ethnic I’d say with a love for the wood grain and colors.

The process started by figuring out how the space would ultimately function and how it would be best to circulate around the living area. The next step was to suggest a color scheme and layout to the couple, which they approved and were comfortable enough to implement themselves. A few accessories here and there and the transformation was like a breath of fresh air!

ETHNIC CHIC!

So a friend of mine moved houses recently and was thinking of taking her love for ethnic fabrics and materials even further in her new houses. She got me thinking about all the beautiful colors, patterns and solid wood involved in these interiors. Did a bit of research on what these spaces could look like and here are my finds. Enjoy!
