Ranya's Home

I picked up a copy of the emirates home magazine and was ever so thrilled to see an ex-colleague and friends home featured in it. I was even more excited to know that she is now a ‘jewellery designer’… Way to go Ranya!! Her jewellery ‘Ranya design’ was created after the birth of her son. She made a disk with his name on it in Arabic Calligraphy as a memento and put it on a rope of semi precious stones. She received so many compliments that she turned her hobby into a profession. Wow!!! Today ‘Ranya design’ is sold at S*uce boutiques. The magazine described her home as ‘an earthy home with a Mediterranean attitude’… Here are some pictures –
The design signature of Ranya’s home is the arched windows which were designed and built by her husband Prajit Arora.
Her home reflects her down to earth values and is painted in neutral tones and filled with everything that is useful. Ranya’s interior style seems effortless but is in fact quite studied. Linen loose covers and a palette made up of coffee, mocha and cream colours combine for a Provencal feel.
Isnt it lovely??
