HOME STYLING: GROWN UP

Just before we took off for our long summer break, we finished what we could easily call our most exciting project of all time. You might have seen the pics and posts already but we also promised to get into some more detail. Last time we focused on the kids rooms and today we want to share the adult spaces with you.

For the grown up kids in this Saudi house we enjoyed mixing a Parisian boho ethos of comfort with a trendy Scandi unconventional direction. Staying true to the geographical location and origin of this house, we added an Arabic touch of gold. 
Because of our sourcing trip to Europe, we were able to add vintage pieces and serendipitous finds from travels as well as some new items from collaborations with cherished designers.
We love creating beautiful corners like the one in the main hall. A black vintage cabinet against a sea weed green wall in combination with a design mirror from Muuto becomes warm and welcoming.
 
As Saudi is not known for her lush green gardens, we brought the green inside. You might recognize the palm tree wall paper from my house. Yet here we also added lots of plants. Don’t tell anyone but these plants are artificial. Did you notice?
To add coziness, we went wild with rugs. Rich, warm and original patterns were brought in like the Iranian vintage Kelim for the official living room and a dusty pink, vintage green Kelim for in the bedroom. All the rugs we sourced at Rozenkelim.
One of the highlights is the custom made marble table to seat the whole family. Custom made by furniture makers De Oude Interieurbouw. The 3.60 meter stretch is combined with beautiful leather camel colored chairs by Muuto. The combination is divine. 
 
We chose for green and a white Elise Fouin Papillon lights above the table as they remind us of the traditional Arabic chandelier.  Yet with a modern Scandinavian touch.
 
For the living room we went for Muuto again to make enough space for everyone. To stay on trend we combined the Connect Sofa with Norman Copenhagen circus poufs.
 
What a difference a color makes. The official living room was totally painted in Jotuns Evening Light, giving this space elegance and a 1001 nights feel due to the added gold touches of the Tom Dixon Etch shades.  
 
Last but not least we want to peek into the serene bedroom. We wanted to keep this room very calm and simple. The only piece is a very comfortable double bed by Box Spring Fabriek and a stunning custom made headboard with big drawers, enough sockets and a bed side table. 
 
We kept our fingers crossed when sourcing and installing this house but somewhere between the painting of the rooms, the laying of the rugs and the hanging of the frames, we felt the magic happen. A big thanks to our fantastic partners, suppliers and supporters and of course our client for giving us this opportunityIMG_6219 IMG_6218 IMG_6207 IMG_6348

  1. […] In collaboration with the Dubai Design Week, Superstudio is opening a Tom Dixon pop-up shop. This brand is perfect for this region, being an excellent mix between British design and just the right amount of glitz for the Middle East. We had a chance to pop-in already and are so happy to see some of our favorite products on display like the pendants we used in the Saudi house. […]
