Today in Bloggers Unite we feature the colourful blog Styling en Interieur from interior stylist Souraya Hassan. Souraya’s styling projects reflect a cultural mix: Eastern traditionality, mystery and warmth, combined with Western clear and modern design. We love it!
When did you start blogging?
I started blogging in 2009 when i graduated from Artemis Styling Academy in Amsterdam. I graduated as Allround Stylist specialized in Interior Design.
What is the idea behind your blog?
I’ve always been addicted to colour and like to create a complete atmosphere where colour, materials, products and light come together and tell one story. I think colour is important in every room, object or stylingproject and by choosing another colour you can change the whole atmosphere.
Because I get so inspired by the projects, fairs, trends and design I see in my work, I wanted to share this with other people. That’s why I started my blog Styling & Interieur. This blog is especially about colour, design, photography and trends. But I also like to show the readers a view in my life as an interior stylist. I like to show them how I work in a project or I post photo’s from different fairs, stores and brands I’ve visited in the Netherlands but also during my travels.
There’s a new item on my blog every Friday, called Photography + Colours, where my passion for photography and colour comes together. I choose some colours from the photo’s, which i’ve made during my travels or daily life and i put this colours next to the photo. The colours in the photo will now tell a story and i hope to inspire people with this new item.
What is your favourites home, design or lifestyleblog?
What advice would you give to new bloggers when they want to start a new blog?
I think it’s imporant to give the readers a view in your life and show your personality. A blog is like a collection of all the things you like and if you tell your opinions and choices in your daily life I guess people love to read your blog because you give your own signature. Inspire and let yourself be inspired.
How do you see the future of blogging?
I guess blogging is taking big steps and getting bigger and bigger. A lot of people start blogging right now or start to follow, to like and to ‘pin’(terst) the blogs. I guess the blogs will be the new magazines and develop into real businesses. The bloggers netwerk will grow very fast. And because of this new blogger evenement there’s a possibility to meet each other in the ‘offline’ world. I would love to meet the other bloggers at the Meet the blogger event: To Inspire & let yourself be inspired.
Thank you Souraya for the interview and we love to meet you at Meet the Blogger!
