The Design Souk Styles: Dining Rooms

This month I’m so excited to show you how to put together eclectic and modern dining rooms. The rooms vary in price points: the price of the modern and eclectic room is higher, so if you’re on a budget, make sure you shop for items that are similar to what I’m showing you (in terms of color, texture, size, […]

Spring Inspired Décor: Earthy Textures & Tones

I know earthy tones and textures were pretty big in 2016, but I don’t feel like I’m ready to let this one go! I’m still obsessing over natural textures and neutral palettes along with a good pop of green (my way of staying on trend!). So since some of us like to decorate for the season, I thought […]

Get Inspired: Styling Your Rental Kitchen

Sometimes I feel like a rental kitchen is one of those spaces that really sucks the creativity out of you. You’re pretty much stuck with some of the things that your landlord “picked out” – especially for you….

Outdoor Décor: Tropical Prints & Parties!

I don’t know about you, but I feel like I’ve been seeing tropical prints EVERYWHERE! That’s probably why I’m slightly obsessed with trying to figure out how to recreate the same look for my outdoor space. While pineapples, banana leaves, and parrots aren’t really for everyone, I do love that it’s become such a popular trend that I don’t […]

Baby Room #TBW

Is it just me or is Dhahran going through some major baby mania? Almost everyone I know is pregnant or just had a baby! I never thought I’d be attending or be invited to more baby showers than birthday parties… So in the spirit of this “season,” I thought I’d do a little throwback to a baby […]

Before & After: Kitchen Decluttering & Reorganizing

I recently spent quite a bit of time helping reorganize and declutter for a kitchen project, and while it was an amazing experience, it also was SUPER challenging – mainly because the kitchen is pretty small and there really wasn’t much storage space available… First off, the shelves in the pantry are quite odd. Deep, not very tall, and extended […]

My Top 10 Favorite Design Sites Right Now

I’ll be honest, I haven’t been feeling super inspired these days. I think it’s probably because vacation mode is really hard to get out of… So when I get like this, I then spend A LOT of time browsing my all-time favorite design and decorating industry guru’s websites for some good ol’ inspiration. While some of […]

It’s been 1 Year!

Sooo time really flies… I can’t believe it, but around this time last year, I “sort of” launched The Design Souk! Eekk! A year ago, I had started writing a few home posts on my new blog and had only told my immediate family members about my idea. I was very hesitant to go public with it, but my sister […]
