Beirut Beauty

Though her daring color combinations may not satisfy everyone’s tastes, interior designer May Daouk‘s Beirut home is undeniably stunning and extraordinary. The high-beamed ceilings, traditional arches, and contemporary twists to Middle Eastern elements make this single story, 19th century villa a true work of art.

  1. That would be my dream home. Lots of light, pattern, fabric, texture, colour.
    I’m definitely a maximalist!

  6. The spaces are just amazing, and (while not exactly my style) the decor is also stunning.
