Double-duty Dining


Hello Everyone!

I’m thrilled to finally share this fabulous dining room I completed a few months ago. I’ll be brief. The client wanted something bold, unique, and most importantly, something that could withstand the abuse of craft projects and homework with her little ones. We opted for a dark hardwearing outdoor fabric on the (majority of the) custom upholstered wing chairs, a synthetic metallic snakeskin (that is completely wipeable) for the side chairs, and a gorgeous distressed dining table. Check it out and let me know what you think!

Glamorous Master

Hello Lovelies,

HAPPY NEW YEAR to each and every one of you! I’m a big believer in LOVING your environment, and that’s why I wanted to start the year off by sharing a bedroom I completed for a busy professional that hired me last year. She works long, hard hours and most definitely needed a plush, glamorous space to receive her at the end of the day. Check out the transformation and my tips below.

Here are 5 tips on how to get this look:

1.These high ceilings were just begging for interest. Add crown moulding and you’ll not only add character, you’ll add elegance.

2. Use a sophisticated neutral. This one is Behr’s (780C-3) Ocean Pearl. Not just grey, not just beige. It’s greige!

3. Don’t know where to start? Pick something you LOVE and let it lead the way. The client’s cherry blossom painting was the perfect jumping off point for our color direction: shades of blue and soft neutrals.

4. Never underestimate the power of symmetry. If you need order and calm in your master bedroom, consider a pair of matching nightstands and lamps.

5. Add impact! Make a small window feel larger with dramatic sweeping drapes that fill the space around it. They may not be fully functional, but they will make for a beautifully luxurious backdrop.

Big Girl Bed

Hi Everyone,

For those of you who don’t know, I had my little girl almost 3 years ago. It’s been such a joy to watch her grow and witness her pure unfiltered wonder and excitement towards even the simplest things.

Children are so fascinating in the way they so easily imagine. It feels like something so rare and short lived, that I personally feel the need to encourage it for as long as I can in the best way I know how, design.

My approach? Set the stage for imagination and memories. Create an environment that inspires every little boy and girl to dream, create, and thrive.

I’m excited to share this project I completed a few months ago for a sweet girl named Grace, whose mother asked me for elegance, beauty, and most importantly, a big girl bed.

Enjoy!

The Importance of White

It’s been a few months since I’ve posted on my blog, but to say things have been busy would be the understatement of the year. I’m grateful (and slightly overwhelmed, to be honest) for the myriad of projects and attention that have come my way recently and I’m hoping to find some more time soon to share what I’ve been working on.

My lovely new client asked me to transform her formal living room and entry in Irvine, California, into a space that was elegant yet young. The room had been treated with venetian plaster and heavy red velvet drapes chosen by the previous owner.

The bare entry niche before.

I believe beautiful design is largely based on contrast. It’s for that reason, that I’m usually the first person to push for adding whites and cremes into almost any space, so as to allow the other tones in the room to lift. In this room especially, with the current venetian plaster, it really made all the difference.

 By using dramatic white sheers and light furnishings, we were able to significantly brighten the space.

Young patterns in soft neutrals give the room an edge and keeps things from getting too stuffy.

Mirrored furniture with gold accents helped lend a lightness and glamour to the room.

From fringe to nailheads, tufting to gilding, there are classic details in almost every part of this room that are integrated in a soft and interesting way.

Addressing the entry niche in a large scale lacy wallpaper and contemporary coral prints in the same tones as the adjacent room, makes the two spaces feel like one.

The entry gets the impact it deserves!

I absolutely loved this project and the very trusting client who really just allowed me carte blanche to create this space. I personally find that with such freedom, comes great imagination and the eagerness to impress.

 

Thanks for reading everyone!

Love,

Nagwa

A Completed Home

Hello Everyone!

I apologize for the late post. I’ve been so busy since the website launched, and I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t a little intimidated by the concept of writing another blog post. Anyways, I hope you enjoy it and that it inspires you.

I’m excited to share one of my most recently completed projects. It’s one that is near and dear to my heart as it’s my sister’s home. I am one of three daughters, and the three of us are extremely close.

So, when my older sister (middle) told me (far right) she was getting married, needless to say I was thrilled!

When she told me she and her new husband were buying a house ten minutes away from me, I was over the moon. And when she asked me to design this beautiful new house, I nearly spit up my Diet Coke. She asked me to make it soft, earthy, fun, glamorous, warm, and worldly; a tall order, but nonetheless, this is what we came up with. I hope you like it!
