So creative director Nahel Selo has shared his hot tips on style trends for the upcoming festive season.Play with Textures
Step away from elaborate or ornate materials and instead focus on adding depth and warmth through playing with contrasting textiles and textures mixed with subtle metallic finishes or accessories.
True to the heritage of a Majlis, there should be creative space division so adding elements such as ottoman or poufs can create more of a circular and social environment. Sedar can customise oversized pillows mixed with accompanying medium and smaller styles in different shapes and fabrics.
Go For Gold
For a memorable iftar, mix up interiors with traditional flashes of gold or brass contrasted with turquoise, royal blues or dusky pinks; this can be through wallpaper panels, threads and details used for pillows and drapes.
Rustic, Khaleeji or Moroccan inspired Interiors
For a more organic and modern majlis reflecting the city and desert-scape of Dubai, take a more rustic approach and work with muted tones and earthy colours using natural fabrics in terracotta and sandy whites.
For a classic Khaleeji creation, keep subtle influences inspired by Islamic and Levantine architecture and with materials such as silk, brocade, including classic embroidery designs.Or for a modern Moroccan inspired majlis interlacing Arab, Mediterranean and African motifs work in bright but harmonious shades of deep blues, red, purples and emerald greens which are not traditionally used for the majlis.
In March, Sedar launched an online store and orders from the site can be delivered to homes and businesses throughout the UAE.So now it's even easier to create a holiday-ready interior.
