When newly weds Farah AlFadhalah and Bader Al-Sarraf were approached by Safat Home back in April for a dream makeover, they simply couldn’t resist. With so much that had to be done since then, the Safat Home team led by Sarah Al Otaibi had a challenge set up for them as they raced against the clock. You didn’t hear about it anywhere else, and by now you must be super excited to know what’s been done and what the final results are! It was nothing short of fun and it has finally come to an end. We wish the couple nothing but incredible times in their new home! Read on to discover all the details that went into this extraordinary home.
Keeping their vision simple, Farah and Bader wanted their living spaces light and airy. They wanted 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. They utilized the Décor Center’s skills and expertise and were able to find inspirational images that would make their vision a reality. Settling on a theme, the couple and the Décor Center found serenity in the Sakura (Japanese Cherry Blossom Tree).
With that in mind, Safat Home’s Décor Center along with Farah and Bader worked out the details of the furniture – always the best part of any makeover. The spaces had been planned and measured, and the latest home furnishings trends considered. Then came the hardest part of any room, setting its focal point. For the living room, the Dream Team along with Team F&B had picked out a beautiful sofa that allowed the rest of the room to be built around it – even the window setup! So when the couple decided to swatch paint samples to pick from, Safat Home’s dedicated team brought forth Hempel paint swatches. Paint swatches have been tested, approved, and applied, fabrics have been chosen, ordered and set, and the natural wood parquet flooring picked and installed; the house came along beautifully. We just couldn’t wait to see the end product!
For months, they were working together closely and planning everything to the T – now, the Safat Team made their house a home. Using natural woods, grays accented with clean whites and ecru, and colors from the elements of the Sakura – the couple’s inspiration board came to life gloriously. The Safat Team found the perfect embodiment of the couple’s style in the Sakura. Combining tradition with modern aesthetic and beauty was Farah and Bader’s goal – and the Sakura, being the perfect representation of that – the Décor Center met the couple’s dreams brilliantly. Bringing together all the elements of this beautiful tree into the home made for an incredible interior. Seamlessly blending with its surroundings and keeping true to the structure, the Sakura was the ideal Meta design umbrella for them to work with. Safat Home based the lighting and material needed around the colors and textures that make the Sakura unique. Developing that idea further from the tree’s dominant palette, the Safat Team, along with Farah and Bader, created a neutral with accenting colors. Mixing Asian minimalistic design with modern inflections, the home’s ethos and spirit shone through fabulously. With style and function to bear in mind while honoring the home’s original structure, Farah and Bader worked closely with the Safat Home Décor Center to create the perfect space. Vowing to provide nothing short of the greatest market offerings, Safat Home stocks and supplies all the premium features a home might need.
You can’t help but feel an air of Zen when looking around the ideas they came up with and the implementations put in. Safat Home’s newest Shuwaikh location is fully stocked with the latest brands anyone might need to create their perfect home. The Décor Center had briefed the couple about the overall process and what needed to be chosen each time – so 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 needed to be as timeless as the rest of the house and practical in style. The other thing kept in mind was that the kitchen needed to complement the home’s Sakura vibe. Using inspirational 3D technology software, the couple was able to get an idea of what their future dream kitchen would look like before they installed it!
Selecting practical and stylish aluminum for the kitchen was important. They went with shades of beige and white, keeping the space comfortably airy and bright, to beautifully reflect the home’s theme. Since the kitchen is located in the basement, space and ventilation were an issue. But there’s nothing the Safat Home’s Décor Center couldn’t handle! As time consuming as everything was, they solved the problems they faced by custom-making the kitchen to suit the space 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 clever. Once implemented with the choice of gorgeous finishes of lacquered glass and high gloss vinyl and aluminum, the kitchen turned out 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 final results. Next on the list for the kitchen makover – Farah and Bader along with the fabulously equipped Safat Home Décor Center, picked out banquettes for the couple to enjoy the smaller meals of the day. Now they can enjoy their kitchen and meals with Zen and beauty at all times!
Naturally, the bedroom is the star of the show – the couple’s haven if you will. Light cream colors combined with greens give the room a peaceful vibe making it the perfect spot to unwind after a long day.
The variety the color scheme provided was vast, and the modernity of their collections perfectly accompanied the overall theme. The colors and textures chosen brought on an airy element, as the guest room radiates in light beige and shades of blue. The perfect embodiment of casual luxury, the home’s theme shines through. An ethereal air prevails in the home’s living spaces for both entertaining and dining, with contrasts of dark and floral mixed in with the light. Sunlight is omnipresent in these rooms, with the light radiating off every aspect of the room and giving the couple warmth in the spaces.
The project has come to an end and the couple are finally ready to move in. The spectacular team from Safat Home’s Décor Center has done an incredible job with the décor and feel of the home as a whole. With the home’s structure untouched and decorous, the interior tells a tale of modernity and youthful bliss. The couple has kindly answered a short questionnaire about their experience, so read on to gain their insight on the project. But that’s all from us here at bazaar and Safat Home! We wish Farah and Bader all the best in their new home!
