Shooting the home of a designer is always worth getting out of bed for. You just know that someone with such a creative soul will have an incredibly interesting home, and discovering the stories behind their unusual pieces will certainly leave you inspired. It came as no surprise, then, that the home of talented accessories designer Nathalie Trad was nothing short of fascinating. Located in a high-rise building in Downtown Dubai, her apartment is a calming space that seamlessly marries various styles, resulting in a harmonious and artistic ambience.

“I would say it is eclectic, homey, and a mix of different styles that come together to form our own aesthetic,” says the Lebanese-born designer. “It is a space that will continue to evolve as we do. It is us, curated.” From the bright-yellow wall in the bar area to the oversized-flower painting by close friend and artist Katya Traboulsi and the attention to detail reflected in a perfectly organized bookshelf, it’s clear that Trad takes pride in every single inch of her home.

Over a much-needed morning espresso, Trad continues, “Every room has a different appeal to me. I love spending the night around the dining table when we have friends over or relaxing with my husband in our living room during the evening. And if I am by myself, you will most likely find me in my studio. Each room has different pieces from around the world that tell a personal story and evoke different memories.”

As for how she imagines her dream home, Trad reveals, “It’s a place where family, friends, and loved ones can come together. My dream home is a place that reflects who my husband and I truly are. My dream home is comprised of different pieces that we have collected together over the years from our various travels and adventures. My dream home is just that – a place we can call home.”
