About Zeenat

headshot_2.jpg

I'm a decorator & a design professional from the Bay Area. I've had the pleasure of working with some wonderful people, on some wonderful projects - Stephanie Marsh at Marsh & Clark Design, The San Francisco Arts & Antiques Show, Ascent Apartments, The Pierce & Maker's Market. I believe in working closely with clients to understand your style, your lifestyle, and your needs, wants and budget, and crafting a home that best represents your tastes. Everyone deserves to feel proud of their living space & I’m honored to be a part of the process!

Personally speaking, I love beautiful things. I'm fascinated by the story behind a piece of art or how something beautiful was designed.  I'm inspired by design that borrows from the past and brings it into the present, with a fresh take on it!  A mix of vintage and modern aesthetics. 

Here, I intend to share with you design discoveries & ideas to live beautifully and imbue style into the everyday. And keep you updated on projects I'm working on.

I'm also the founder of Flint People, a resource for creative entrepreneurs, where I interviewed 15 creatives & business owners, including the founders of Three Twins Ice Cream & IAmElemental.  Prior to that, I was a Product Manager at Microsoft,  designing & shipping products for Microsoft Office (Excel was my first & remains my favorite!)

 

An Art & Design Awakening

On a trip to France, I was inspired by the way the people lead their lives. They bring creativity & flair into everything they do, and it was a JOY to witness. 

In Paris, I was inspired by the design, packaging and presentation of products. Whether it’s a perfume or a macron, things are exquisitely presented. The color palettes fresh, the window displays told a story.

Provence was an absolute revelation. I got introduced to nature in a whole new way in the south of France.  You’ll see every shade of green imaginable as you drive through the countryside, and just like that, you might stumble upon a patch of lavender, on an evening walk. Cypress trees touched the sky. Natural fragrances filled the air. Lavender, rose, verbena were a part of people's daily lives. I was fascinated with this aesthetic way of living life & the ability to make it all beautiful.

I took A LOT of notes and met some wonderful people!  It was a hugely inspiring trip and really made me see the joy in living beautifully and imbuing style into the everyday.
