WHAT ARE THE THREE MUST-HAVE PIECES TO INSTANTLY ELEVATE A HOME?



There are so many ways to instantly elevate a home, but I believe the key is found in the details – window treatment, for example, is a must-have interiors touch that is sometimes overlooked. Otherwise, dress up your walls with unique wallpapers, decorative art or even artwork for an easily personalized twist. Lastly, a statement lamp or lighting can bring a dramatic element to a space, providing a wow factor. - Rusul Abdulkareem Ali, AATI Interior Designer


For me, there are many more than three ways to elevate a home! It goes back to the basics of interior design – color selection, lighting, and decorative art. Color selection can create an entire theme or feel in a space, shown throughout with soft accessories such as cushions, curtains, rugs and sofas. Lighting comes next to put these colors in the spotlight, including chandeliers, table lamps and floor lamps – it’s a rule of thumb to choose designs that match the floors and side lamps. Lastly, the entire concept can be elevated by curated decorative art pieces, such as a vase or unique center piece, carefully distributed in spaces that you’d like to highlight throughout. – Nour Alshanti, AATI Interior Designer





AATI CARRIES A PLETHORA OF COVETED ITALIAN DESIGNER HOME BRANDS. WHICH DO YOU RECOMMEND FOR EACH INDIVIDUAL INTERIOR STYLE?



For the modern design afficionado that prefers an elegant and streamlined aesthetic, I would recommend Minotti. Minotti merges together the ultimate sophistication and comfort with an expansive range of contemporary indoor and outdoor offerings. When going for a homey and cozy feel, Casamilano is a great option. – RA


When someone is looking for truly bespoke and one-of-a-kind pieces, I always recommend Roberto Cavalli Home. The brand is a true representation of luxury style with their collection of pieces that use an array of unique designs and colors. Similarly, Fendi Casa provides a luxury and modern feel synonymous with Italian style. – NA



WHICH LIVING SPACES SHOULD DESIGNERS NEVER NEGLECT WHEN DECORATING A HOME?



In my opinion, this is relative to every client. Each home is different in its identity, and we achieve this through understanding a client’s needs, wants and the way they best enjoy their home and use their living spaces. – RA


I believe that the living room is the identity of every home. It’s the communal space, the area that we generally use the most and enjoy daily with our loved ones. It is also a very versatile space – you can play with different designs and colors to truly show off your design taste. It’s always an adventure to create a living room by layering different pieces and add-ons before achieving the final look. – NA
