  • Capturing the essence of an entire country within the confines of a small coffee shop is a feat that many would consider an overly ambitious endeavor.

With a discerning eye and a profound connection to her surroundings, she crafts a setting that resonates with the heart of Oman without losing the intimacy and warmth that make the café a comforting haven. As you flip through her extensive portfolio, it becomes clear that Surinaa's design approach is driven by intuition. Unbound by industry trends, established conventions, or traditional principles, Surinaa confidently marches to the beat of her own drum.

    Designing Asia's Heartfelt Homes with Interior Designers

    Interior design in Asia is diverse and rich in culture, drawing inspiration from various traditions and styles. Countries in Asia, such as Japan, China, India, and many others, have their unique design aesthetics and principles. Some popular Asian interior design elements include minimalist Japanese design, vibrant colors in Indian interiors and the harmonious balance of yin and yang in Chinese design. These styles often blend modern and traditional elements to create stunning and harmonious living spaces.

    A interior design is the art, science, and business planning of a creative, technical, sustainable and functional interior solution that corresponds to the architecture of a space, while incorporating process and strategy, a mandate for well-being, safety, and health, with informed decisions about style and aesthetics.

Interior designers also do more specific tasks, including design services like sketching design plans and putting together mood boards while space planning, creating budgets, timelines, and sourcing materials.
