This curtain style is best when you have a hidden decor space in the ceiling. The curtain style is suitable for modern and classic

For me, curtains can be tricky, I had to change my curtains twice before I find out what is the best curtains suitable for my living room theme.

As fashion develops, so does interior design and all its aspects. Unless your house is typically old french or  British classic, you have very limited modern and contemporary classic curtains options (In my opinion).

An Apartment or a House, Does’t Really Matter

Photo 22-08-2

I always hear from many girls that its not worth decorating their place perfectly because they live in apartments rather than houses, therefore it doesn’t make any sense to spend that much money and energy to decorate something temporarily.

I totally disagree! If you are staying in an apartment for  1 year or maximum 2 years before you move to your permanent house, then that’s a temporarily, but if you don’t know when are your going to move to a new house, or your will move to a new house after 5 year, then that’s a very loong time to stay in a place that is not been decorated properly.

I understand if you don’t want to change the floors or the bathrooms, but the furniture you can always take them with you, good quality furniture can last literally forever.

Your apartment IS your home, doesn’t matter if you’r staying there for 5 years or less. Your place reflects your lifestyle, express you elegance and your high standards in life through your place.

Yesterday I went to the bloggers event at Youtopia Lifestyle Store, I describe the items in the store in one word: Artistic.

The store sells furniture, cloths, leather bags and cases, paintings, and they print tattoos on the bags, but I will talk about my area pf expertise Furniture. Every furniture piece in the store is unique and made with precision.

Hessa Al Sabah, the owner of the store, started to have the passion for furniture not long time ago, and since then, she committed to her passion and spent 1 whole year with a renowned furniture designer to know all about the furniture making industry.

Hessa is very creative, she managed to turn many ordinary items into artistic furniture items, like turning her mom’s jackets fabrics into a chair, or a luggage into chair and many more. Some of the fabrics that are used in the furniture are uniquely designed by Hessa and you won’t find it anywhere else.

Marble Vs. Ceramics

Photo 16-12-2012 11 37 23 PM

We all have different tastes for bathrooms interior designs, marble or ceramics, it all depends on what kind of experience we are looking for.

For me, I always go for marble bathrooms, because no matter how minimal the design of the bathroom is or how inexpensive the marble is, marble bathrooms will always look and feel luxury and timeless. That’s why most hotels bathrooms are marble.
