Naseem’s Stunning Sanctuary Full of Favorite Things
In my small-town Texas loft, my bedroom is the one place where I embrace the “less is more” philosophy. The minimalist mix of neutral linens, light walls and carefully curated objects is a stark contrast to my inclination toward a more maximalist décor. The result is a true sanctuary.
A Persian rug served as my inspiration. In general, I prefer to design a room from the ground-up. Our family’s boutique is filled with beautiful rugs, which means I cannot help but look at their patterns and hues without them sparking something in me creatively. The carpet I chose for my bedroom has a color palette that is feminine and rich and not overpowering, giving me a foundation I could build upon with layers of whites and wood tones.
I am a girl’s girl, so I am constantly expanding my collection of scents and jewelry and products. I do not see a purpose in tucking all these “essentials” away. Everything is so beautiful and lends itself to artful display.
My loft is overflowing with books, and my library finds its way into every room. As with my beauty products, I work to integrate my books into my décor and often mingle them with trinkets from my travels. Mementos are so personal. For me this is what makes a house a home—the relics, all the things that could never be replicated.
One of my favorite aspects of the room is the floor-length mirror, which amplifies the light of my small window. Other favorites? My rescue Akitas Luuka & Lily. These dogs are as essential to my home décor as anything else. They are everywhere I am. Although they always prefer sharing my bed, I am slowly transitioning them to the plush and cushy dog beds from Jax & Bones.
From books and scents to my beloved pups, beauty and comfort are ultimately what define my space and make it one where I love to wind down, wake up and just be.
