"الحرّيّة من الفكرة"
like to find the soul in vintage items and to renovate antiques and what may be considered as “scrap”, but to them it’s an entirely different story of beauty and potential. As “Necessity is the mother of invention” it’s also the mother of art and creative ideas. Their store is called “Hunaya” which means “My Here”. Their décor conveys a love for nature, it’s intermediate between vintage and modern designs, each piece tells a unique story which lives forever when all else ceases to exist. Noor loves to help people by offering them mesmerising décor at a very affordable price, because everyone deserves to have a beautiful lively home. She aspires to sell her designs to big brands someday.
