Lama Qaddumi-Shahin, the Co-Founder and Creative Director of Mosaique boutique in Abu Dhabi, has a keen eye for all things boho. After all, her concept space is the exclusive home to brands such as Bokja, Verreum, and Hybrid in the country’s capital, and her diverse edit of home pieces, which come from various corners of the globe, make the boutique feel more like an upscale art gallery than an interiors store.
For those hoping to dip their toes into the eclectic home style, Mosaique clearly is one place to get started on your interiors journey. When asked for advice for incorporating her pieces into your home, Qaddumi-Shahin shares, “Don’t be scared of adding color to achieve an eclectic home. Start with baby steps, pops of color here and there and accent pieces. Just be sure not to go overboard. Color should be used to give a room personality and liveliness.” In addition to color, Qaddumi-Shahin also recommends adding family photos, candles, and plants to achieve a personalized space.
Lastly, she advises using different textures or uniquely sized furniture when mixing the old with the new to add personality to a space. “Personally, I love mixing elements as it’s reflective of who I am as a person. As long as the proportions of the pieces are right and there are some common aesthetics, you can’t go wrong,” she shares.
