Hey guys, December's almost halfway done. Whattttt? I'm scrambling around the studio finishing up commissions and getting orders out from sold out art on my website (yay!). I've been meaning to share this cool project that I had the pleasure of participating in earlier this year, but had to wait for the green light.
Several months ago, U.S. interior designer Saudah Saleem contacted me to feature my "Hijab Figure Study" painting in one of her upcoming design projects. I love her work and design aesthetic, so naturally I said yes. The only thing is that it was a top secret project and I wasn't allow to share it with you guys until recently! So here it is:
Her beautiful design of the perfect tween's room is now featured on AphroChic.com!
I love the color palette and modern feel of this room. The light is perfect, and truthfully, there's nothing kiddy about this girl's room. It's very chic! Can you spot my piece yet?
The room was designed with her daughters in mind, who share the space. The art, the mirrors, the dressing table, and look at those pillows! I shared a room with my little sister for many years so this room takes me back to those happy times.
The gallery wall is a mix of fun frames and shapes, witty and inspirational words, and abstract art from contemporary painters. It's a great combination of beauty and function.
And there is my hijab figure painting in the gorgeous frame. I'm so happy for this room and the girls that get to inhabit it! It's brimming with inspiration and personality.
Saudah explains here motivations for the space here:
“I used African-American silhouettes near the beds, vintage fashion and travel prints, inspirational quotes and lots of bright colors and pattern to incorporate a sense of who we are as a family as well as who they are as individuals. The selections remind the girls of where we come from and the endless possibilities that exist with regard to where they can go in life if they work hard and pursue their passions,” Saleem explains.
The sky's the limit!
