Don’t Go Tiny

Alway go for medium to large framed art or paintings instead of tiny ones, even if you are grouping several ones in one big space. Big frames are more luxury and stylish.

Sometimes Less Fancy is Better

DSCF5467

Flowers are the ultimate home accessories, without them, your place will seem missing something, even if your place is full of art and home accessories. Flowers are the cheapest and fastest way to add warmth and glamour to your place instantly.

Obviously when we host people in our place, we tend to buy fancy and well-arranged bouquet of flowers, but in my opinion, the more casual and (less formal) the bouquets are, the better, but why? because when we host people we want them to feel comfortable, loosened up and less formal, casual bunch of flowers always give that feeling, however fancy bouquets tend to make your place more formal, hence, your guests feel less casual and less (loosened up).

من إكسسوارات البيت الأساسيه هي الزهور و الورود، بدونهم، يظهر المكان كأنه ناقص شيء، حتى لو كان البيت مليء بالإكسسوارات و التفاصيل الجميله. إضافة الزهور و الورود هي .أرخص و أسرع طريقة لإضافة الدفئ و الجمال و الفخامه لبيت
عند إستضافة الزوار في بيتك، أول شي يخطر في البال هو شراء بوكيهات الورد الفخمه و الغاليه، لكن من وجهة نظري، الورد البسيط المجهز عالسريع هو الأفضل، لماذا؟ لأننا دائما نحرص على زوارنا بالشعور بالراحه و الدفىء، بالتالي الورود البسيطه هي الأنسب لانها دائما تعطي هذا الشعور، على عكس البوكيهات الفاخره، تعطي الشعور بالرسميه

My favorite picks at ‘Omar Baik’

Omar Baik has a mix of home accessories and serving plates, trays and others. Omar Baik is one of my favorite stores, whenever I’m searching for little home accessories.

The following pictures are the items I found worth buying.

 The downside about Omar Baik that its very crowded with items, and the way they are arranged and displayed is not very appealing, therefore you can’t see the beauty of their items.

For more information and items visit Omar Baik at Al-Rihab Complex

“Ditch the Bouquet, Send a Garden!” … Terra Garden

I love plants, flowers and everything green, I would love to surround myself with gardens, well it turned out you can. I discovered a new concept of gardening call Terrarium, where you can plant a miniature of a garden in a clear container, such as bottle, glass bowl or an aquarium.

Well, you don’t actually have to plant them, Terra Garden, a store offers all kinds and shapes of Terrariums. Once I knew about these plants, I went to visit the store and bought a pretty Terrarium.

 These Terrariums can fit any space and can be used as any kind of home accessory. They are very easy to take care of, and can live for a very long time.
