When I saw images of this home… I simply fell in love with it.. And for those of you who know me… you’ll know why!! Yes! The shades of orange.. my favourite colour… has my heart fluttering… *smiles*
This is the home of Mrs. Shahana Mustafa, who is a retired arts and crafts teacher. She still occasionally does some classes at the Art Centre in Jumeirah, and a few exhibitions with ARTE group. Her passion lies in sewing and all kinds of handwork, like knitting, crochet, beadwork embroidery etc. She likes to work with bits and pieces of unused fabrics lying around at home.
Now a little about Sabina ~
“I'm an art director at an advertising agency and a new mother, who is currently learning the art of juggling a baby and a career that I'm quite passionate about. My love for design and the arts comes from my mom. Although I'm more inclined towards art and design and less towards craft and handwork.”
“I started to do up my parents house just before I got married and just managed to complete the living room. Since it was for my parents, I wanted an ethnic, yet contemporary style for the living room. As with all living spaces it's constant work in progress.”
My mom has a penchant for collecting knick knacks and decorative items, so she has quite a collection of tea sets, crystal ware, brassware, vases etc collected lovingly over the past 30 years or so...
These cushion covers are made of out Sabina’s old cloth bags that she wasn’t using…. Sabina’s mom also takes orders to design and do bead work on the cushions... like the maroon one below.
Now, leave your comments for Sabina, so she knows what a fabulous job she has done...
And if you've got a home, you'd like to share, email me on firstname.lastname@example.org... Would love to have a sneak peak... *smiles*
