Steve McQueen


Happy Birthday, Steve McQueen
I wore my Steve McQueen Persols all day,
I was lucky enough to pick up a pair before they sold out worldwide.

If you can find a pair, buy them!

the building that made me become a designer....


It started my obsession...


I was lucky enough to stay at the Jumeirah Beach Hotel back when it opened (in 1997). I spent a few years as a teenager living in Kuwait with my family. being abroad, I was exposed to some amazing design and architecture. Living there made me who I am today, I have a different outlook on things (design wise and life/morals wise) and I want different things for myself than most people my age (i'm 24 in case you were wondering).

I always knew that I wanted to be a designer in some aspect. whether is was an architect, landscape architect, or what I ultimately choose, interior design.
I am excited to see where my future takes me... and I hope to design some amazing spaces.

Now back to the hotel. Isn't it beautiful?
I feel that its it far to often overlooked.
I love the fluidity of if... a crashing wave into the arabian gulf.
I hope to visit it again
