The Dubai Design week 2017 were kicked off yesterday with the opportunity for bloggers to visit the trade fair before the crowds come in. Why? Well, we just love to get a good shot of some beautiful design without someone behind it that we otherwise would need to shop away. Anything for a perfect pic right?
This early bird special does get us in the mood for this week because this is the most inspirational time for design lovers like us in Dubai. Design, in any shape or form, is an essential part of our life. It is something genuine and interesting, and we love learning about it and being surprised by it’s functionality or creativity.
In the category ‘better late then never’, we would love to share a project with you that has kept us very busy the last few months.
For interior stylists it is always exciting when new color cards are being launched. Especially when it is the color card of our partner Jotun. And this years trend color launch was extra special since we were in charge of styling the event including the roll out in the region. Inspired by the new color pallets and a direction that we were given from the head office in Norway, we created a set up for the launch event including a sit down dinner at stunning Inked Dubai.
A few months ago we gave you a little sneek peak into our collaboration with Maison Saadah, developing a collection of ‘Live Loud Girl’ rugs. A dream come true for us as we have been huge fans of these Moroccan Beni Ourain hand made rugs.
Maison Saadah is an online store that came to life in 2015 when they started bringing the famous Beni Ourain Rugs to the UAE. These wool rugs are hand made in the
mountains of Morocco and traditionally feature a black pattern woven into a cream foreground.
Classic Beni Ourain rugs are well known and appreciated for their specific
patterns, dense weave and immense softness due to the use of high quality un-dyed wool.
The collaboration between Maison Saadah and Live Loud Girl is all about bringing a breath of fresh air to the home decor scene with its more modern design and use of bold colours while preserving the traditional weaving techniques and the unique look and feel of these iconic rugs.
Ready, set, action!
We were so excited and honored to do our first styling job of a video shoot. We were asked to take care of the styling for the setting of the online campagne for the launch of Jotun’s Wonderwall and Royal Velvet paint range starring beauty blogger @raniafawazz.
Jotun is a brand that we often work with (and for). Yet this being a video shoot did make things a bit more thrilling then usual. For weeks our mind was set on getting the perfect items and props together.
