This is her story:
Some years ago when I started my family life, I wanted to have my own house and started building the same with a help of an architecture who did the plan according to what I wanted. But all of a sudden he disappeared and from then I had to instruct the contractors how I want and what designs /colors I wanted to have. It really gave me a boost and from that time I decided I will do everything by myself from colors / furniture to the landscaping of my own garden. After completing the house the response I got from my family and friends were tremendous. Then my friends started consulting me to decide everything in their houses. This really inspired me to study further about Interior Designing and I started reading all kind of interior design articles & started doing some long distance diplomas as at that time I had moved to Bahrain.
After moving to Bahrain I did my own apartment with a very low budget and someone who just visited my apartment to buy a piece of furniture was very inquisitive to find out who has done my small space. When he got to know everything has done by me from the painting walls to decorating each and every room, he invited me to do his newly purchased apartment and then it was the start of my carrier as a freelance Interior Decorator in Bahrain with my own terms. I specialize in working with clients who appreciate high end interior design and are committed to creating interior that reflects style, beauty and comfort. My clients are couples and families who are looking for a designer to understand and assist in creating a comfortable & unique style home within their budget.
Interior Designing has become my passion and addiction. After starting to work I wanted to help each and everyone in someway to give them some ideas how to arrange their homes by them self and then I started my own page D Decor Homes in year 2010 end to give everyday some interior picture collections, tips & advises in different ways to help them decide what they need to give a look to their own space. While it helps others it has helped me spreading the word around and was a help for my day to day work too.
As a Interior Decorator I would like to mention each and everyone that ” to achieve excellence in design work, it is important that our client relationship be completely open and honest and trusting in my or designer’s design expertise. As with any artist, the finished portrait is not readily apparent with the few strokes of the brush. The same holds for true design as it is the careful balance of color, light & furniture that create the unique design for your home. No one inspire by each element alone, its the completion and togetherness of each element create unified space that speaks to your individual style. This is really important to understand by a client when they seek consulting & working with a designer.”
