Aspiring interior designer Aisha’s flat in Jumeirah Living – in which she lives with husband Rizwan and their children – is her first project. “Initially it took me two months to make the place comfortable,” she remembers, “but I never stopped decorating. I like changing and moving my pieces every now and then.”
The apartment is a great example of her work. “I just go by what feels right and gives me inner calm,” she says. “I have never really followed a theme.”
Aisha herself was responsible for the design of her favourite piece of furniture: a purple, walnut high-back chair. She was assisted on this project by Ayesha Kishwar from Contours Furnishers in Karachi.
Despite having chosen to live in the sleek, modern surroundings of the Jumeirah Living World Trade Centre Residences, Aisha admits her dream home would probably be in a vineyard in Italy.
