CRAFT & COMPANY :: EVERYTHING BUT ORDINARY

I know a great store when I see one, even if its in cyber space! Craft & Company caught my eye via social media and it was their impeccable selection of products topped by their presentation of gift packaging that really wowed me!

ASHYAA :: CURATED DESIGN IN THE HEART OF SHARJAH

Having been in the UAE for a long long time, there is nothing more I love than seeing new concept design stores open. One particular shop I have come across recently was Ashyaa meaning 'Things' which is situated in the Souq Alshanasiyah - Heart of Sharjah. Founded by Noura Al Shamsi, the concept store displays a collection of different items from Homeware, to fine jewlery, leather goods, kids books and cosmetics; all of which are exclusive in the region, of great design & quality and/or are handmade. 'I've always enjoyed owning different, quirky items!' she says. Through her travels to Europe and South Africa she always took pleasure finding those quirky items in standalone boutiques rather

STEEL MY STYLE! AS FEATURED IN BETTER HOMES MAGAZINE

STEEL MY STYLE! Was recently interviewed by Betterhomes Magazine on my style for various tips and favourite decor tips! Describe your design style I would say it’s contemporary meets Modern Glam. Although I love a good vintage or flee market find these are not easily accessible here in the UAE, so my home is a clean mix of neutral masculine color palettes finished with plenty of bling from chrome and brass, to statement mirrors, luxe fabrics and velvet ornate furniture. Favourite places to shop for furniture in the UAE, and why? My favourites are Bloomingdales, Nakkash Gallery, The One Fusion, Indigo Living, Marina Homes & Crate & Barrel – they all have a variety of styles at different price

DESIGN FILES :: MAKING MAGIC!

There is nothing I love more than a quick room makeover that you can do in a couple of hours! So when my youngest client asked if she can makeover her room into something a tiny bit more grown up I jumped right at it. So here's what I did. We picked up new bedcovers in a lovely blush pink and some throw pillows to compliment it. We also did a few wall art in black and gold (you can check the DIY here). We got the Hay bedside table from Ashyaa and styled it with some greens, and some brass accessories we had picked up from Copenhagen. My daughter also made a dream catcher from TYPO. Some sheep skin a grey bench, a throw and voila! A room that made my growing little one happy!

DIY :: QUICK ART

COLLECTED COLLECTIONS

During a visit to London, we met up with a close friend who talked me into starting a collection. He said it can be anything as long as it puts a smile on your face. That reminded me of a past project where I advised my client to display his collection of mini cars by hanging them vertically on a wall … I've rounded up a couple of other collections from the net, From Dice to contractors! Some more expensive than others to collect, but each tells a story....the typewriters are my favourite! There are more here on my pinterest board. So what did I end up collecting? Vintage malachite look alike artdeco trinket boxes made in the 40's. I often score these from vintage shops and flee markets wh
