My story

Souraya Hassan owner of studio Binti Home

Nice to have you here! This website / blog I share with you like my passion for color, interior, styling and photography. I give a view in my creative and enterprising (work) life as an interior designer, stylist and interior photographer. Here you find a mix of completed (interior) projects, do it yourself stylingtips and much inspiration for your home. I share above all “Happiness”!

“I want to inspire people to look differently at colors and styling, and how you can translate this into your own interior”

Binti Home design studio

In 2009 I started my business Binti Home after I graduated from Artemis Styling Academy in Amsterdam. I started as a freelancer working on various creative projects in the field of event styling, brand styling, interior design and decorating homes. Since 2009 I work full time for my company Binti details on various projects and that’s really the best decision i have ever made. I could really focus on my own company and able to work on amazing projects.

Creating color palettes is the key to every project. Working closely with inspiring clients and enthusiastic customers gives me lots of energy. It is every time a good feeling when in the final result everything comes together : the personal needs and preferences and creating a suitable interior or space. It’s wonderful to work on all these creative projects I really do what makes me happy : styling, (interior) design and create a balance in color, style and material. This aspect is also well reflected in the interiors I have for individuals and businesses design.

”My dream is to be able to set up a complete interior concept for a hotel on a day”

Background Souraya Hassan

As a 28year old entrepreneur I get inspired by colour, history, details and travelling. I am married with my big love Mahmoud and together we can work on different photography and video projects. Binti is the Arabic word for “my daughter / my girl.” This word is close to me and it reflects the individuality and personality of what I want to show with Binti Home. This personality is a cultural mix of my Egyptian and my Dutch background. The name reflects the vision studio Binti Home stands for:

”A clear atmosphere and styling design for a room or interior that radiates warmth and a feeling of recognition which are designed for the needs and identity of the client or customer. Personality and identity is the key in every project.”

My strength is to listen carefully to the customer or client and to translate this into an atmosphere in which they recognize themselves. This atmosphere is created by the right color – material – and making style combinations. I am very proud that I have been able to work on so many great projects with my company Binti Home.

Working in Holland and Egypt

Since 1,5 year I worked on several projects in Cairo, which is really a dream come true. This I really thanks to social media. I let my own design products for my Binti Home collection, in addition, I work with new designers, I buy products and I’m looking pretty new products for Binti Home shop. I’m also discovering the creative market in Egypt and I have now been allowed to work on some inspirational interior projects for individuals and businesses. Look at projects I’ve been up to.

”The opportunity to work in the Netherlands and Egypt and combine my passion is a dream come true!”

Binti Home Blog

My blog is a kind of creative diary that makes me happuy. Where the blog started out as something with it has now become a serious part of my business. I post on my blog only my own photography which I try to create unique content. I share styling tips from my house, give a look behind the scenes during projects, largely the result of (interior) projects and take you to inspiring shops, restaurants and the trips I make. My blog really reflects who I am and what I stand for, my Dutch Egyptian roots you also regularly come back in form of color palettes, a modern Arabic style and my love for my second homeland Egypt.
