The project continues as the Safat Home team creates the perfect home for our beautiful couple – Farah AlFadhalah and Bader Al-Sarraf. For this issue we’ll be inspecting their newly selected kitchen and the requirements to create this essential aspect of the house. Using inspirational 3D technology software, the couple was able to get an idea of what their future dream kitchen would look like! But before we jump into the details of this project, let’s recap on what’s been happening so far. The Safat Home Décor Center met with the lovely couple back in April to go over what needs to be done and their general vision. Working closely together and planning everything to the T, the Safat Team is making their house a home.
Naturally the whole thing started when the Safat Team prepared a few questions and images for our lucky couple to gage their taste. Being the epitome of youth and bubbling energy, Farah and Bader love different color combinations and incorporating different elements. Still, they don’t want to have anything too overpowering. Keeping their vision simple, they want their living spaces light and airy. They want the feel of the house to be timeless – and for good reason. Preserving the identity of the house, as a structure, is something extremely important to the couple. Willing to modernize the interior to creating a contemporary look, they aim to keep the exterior’s veracity. Utilizing the Décor Center’s skills and expertise, they were able to find inspirational images that will make their vision a reality.
Using natural woods, grays accented with clean whites and ecru, and colors from the elements – the couple’s inspiration board came together beautifully. The Safat Team found the perfect embodiment of the couple’s style – the Japanese Cherry Blossom, known simply as the Sakura. Combining tradition with modern aesthetic and beauty is Farah and Bader’s ultimate goal – and the Sakura is the perfect representation of that. Bringing together all the elements of this beautiful tree into the home makes for an incredible interior. Seamlessly blending with its surroundings and keeping true to the structure, the Sakura is the ideal Meta design umbrella for them to work with. Safat Home is basing the lighting and material needs around the colors and textures that make the Sakura unique. Developing their ideas further from the tree’s dominant palette, the Safat Team, along with Farah and Bader, agreed that the base should be neutral with accenting colors.
You can’t help but feel an air of Zen when looking around the ideas they’ve come up with. With the tasks set and teams designated, the inches were measured and the corners ruled. Safat Home’s newest Shuwaikh location is fully stocked with the latest brands anyone might need to create their perfect home. Astounded by the quality and quantity of styles at the showroom, the couple started going over the designs. The Décor Center briefed the couple about the overall process and what needs to be chosen this time – bring on the kitchens! Keeping in mind the couple’s needs when it comes to this very essential part of the house, the Décor Center proposed a plethora of designs. Looking to have a kitchen that can cater to the entire home’s needs – the kitchen needs to be timeless and practical in style. The other thing to keep in mind is that the kitchen needs to complement the home’s Sakura vibe.
Selecting practical and stylish aluminum for the kitchen is important. Going with shades of beige and white to keep the space comfortably airy and light to beautifully reflect the home’s theme. Since the kitchen is located in the basement, space and ventilation are an issue. But there’s nothing the Safat Home’s Décor Center can’t handle! As time consuming as everything can be, they solved the problems they’ve faced by custom-making the kitchen to suit the space’s and couple’s needs. Going with an ever-so-elegant natural granite work surface and custom-made storage solutions – the design, to say the least, is super clever. Choosing gorgeous finishes of lacquered glass and high gloss vinyl and aluminum, once implemented, the kitchen will be captivatingly spectacular. To optimize space and keeping comfort and ease of access in mind, the handles on doors and movable surfaces are easy to use. With ergonomics and functionality being key features in every aspect of kitchen design for Safat Home, the couple is pleased with the options.
Next on the list of all things home – the couple along with the fabulously equipped Safat Home Décor Center, are picking out banquettes for the couple to enjoy the smaller meals of the day. As for the home’s flooring, Farah and Bader are going through a variety of patterns and colors to choose the perfect natural parquet to suit their home.
