Hey guys we have a guest blogger!

Hello, my name’s Zainab Quadri. I’m an Architect/ Interior designer/ Events Planner.
A couple of days ago, I decided to add ‘blogging’ to the list of my New Year resolutions. And so, when I told  Chechi about it, I was pretty excited when she asked me to be a guest blogger on her blog for abit before I finally start mine, just to ‘test the waters’.

I’m simply going to show how sometimes what we wear or our fashion sense relates to our environment i.e where we live and how sometimes the spaces we live in are inspired by fashion trends.

The monochromes


Black and white will never go out of style. This classic combination has endless possibilities when used in interiors...whether the design style is traditional, modern, eclectic, sophisticated - black and white will work!



    Using one color in different shades can make a room pop! When well done, a room can have a uniqueness about them even if the color is beige.

Color Blocking


Colors! Colors!! Colors!!! I just love when different complimentary colors are used in spaces. They can bring any space to life when used in the right way.

The Animal prints


I love when animal prints are used as accent pieces in different spaces. As long as they aren’t used in excess, they can be very classy.

Hope you learnt abit from this post.


  1. First!... Very interesting Madam Z... What future trends do you see (Subsidised Fashion perhaps?) And how do these adapt to Nigerian style of interior design and fashion...

  2. Nice one Zee! I like how u captured the key trends in 2011, as well as timeless trends (monochrome & prints) Last year was great for the fashion industry. Looking forward to an even much more Fab 2012... cheers to that ;)
