Dubai’s Radisson Royal Hotel: Origami Hall

Standard

It’s known to most that I’m obsessed with all white interiors.

White + Blonde woods = I’ve hit the jackpot.

So, when I recently attended a seminar for work at Dubai’s Radisson Royal Hotel on the famous Sheikh Zayed Road – I knew I had to blog about their Origami Hall/ Meeting Rooms.

Not only a meeting space, this part of the hotel is more like a piece of art with its geometric architectural shape and futuristic style.

With sleek modern furnishings, this below pictured space is used as a pre-function area for meetings and seminars and is conveniently located by the entrance of the hotel for everyone to gawk at.

Working on design projects, I stumbled across this gorgeous credenza at BDDW – a company that makes handmade furniture in New York.

But the downside? These pieces list at $13,800. I bet the quality is amazing, but not a lot of people have that much money to spend on a credenza.

So I did a little research, and found some similar pieces that won’t burn a hole in your wallet!

1. The Pullhouse Credenza from Schoolhouse Electric. $3500.

One of the perks of being an interior designer is getting to go to some really exciting lunch and learns. The one I attended today just happened to be a gorgeous furniture showroom “DZINE” carrying some stunning Italian pieces.

Here are some pictures of designer Paola Lenti’s pieces that I happened to take a couple pictures of:

Why hello there, city by the bay!

Standard

New zip code, new friends, new apartment… I’m here! I made it!

From the time I set foot into this wonderful country I have wanted to make my way to San Francisco.. and finally I am here! The end of August brought me some happy news – I was hired as junior interior designer. Where you might ask? well, right in the heart of San Francisco at Marie Fisher Interior Design.

I decided to take the job and on September 25th I flew out to California to follow my dream. It took me all of four days to find myself an awesome roommate, and even ‘awesomer’ apartment 20 minutes away from my new place of work! I’ve only stayed at my apartment for one night (with no bed, might I add) but it seems to be perfect. It is spacious (in comparison to other San Franciscan apartments), has plenty of old Edwardian charm and seems to be in the most convenient location.. aka 20 min walk to work, 5-20 minute walk to some awesome restaurants/ stores/ markets etc. I just might have hit the jackpot.

Soon I will move all my stuff into my new home and start to explore my neighborhood with my adventurous roommate and her suuuuper friendly four legged companion, Bella 🙂

Here are some pictures of my new home & first couple days in the city!
