Good morning lovelies! After a one day pause I decided to conclude the week dedicated to the launch of my wedding planning services in Sharm el Sheikh with a short and sweet interview to Natoof, Dubai based graphic and wedding stationery designer. Don’t ask me how I stumbled across Natoof‘s work – it must have been on one of those all-day sessions researching local, versatile suppliers with a solid background in the Arab wedding world. One way of the other I found them, and after following their work for a while on Facebook and Instagram, I mastered up the courage of asking them if I could feature their work on my humble blog for the launch of #projectsharm. And thankfully Natoof said yes! I say ‘thankfully’ because I’m incredibly grateful, but also chuffed, that someone of their caliber (check their website and you’ll understand what I mean when I say ‘someone of their caliber’) was kind enough to take the time to answer a few questions so they could be featured on Linen and Silk. Ultimately I really hope there will be an opportunity to work with Natoof on one of my Sharm weddings real soon, so if you are a bride, fancy the idea of getting married in Egypt, like Natoof style, let’s make it happen!
And now, over to Natoof…

♥ How would you describe Natoof style? Generally our designs are modern but we understand that everyone has their own style & taste so we listen carefully to our clients and do our best to present their ideas within our scope of work.
♥ Where do you draw your inspiration from? Everyday life, and whatever I see infront of me can sparkle the lights in my right side brain whether a book cover, a dress, a flower, or the surface of my coffee foam.
♥ What gets your creative juices flowing? When I feel that the client is trusting me with the work I produce, I give it all and go the extra mile to meet their expectations.
♥ Tell us something crazy / inspiring / interesting about you… I love watching Zombie movies/shows — a friend said I wonder how can you come up with beautiful designs from the same brain that watches ” The Walking Dead ” 😉
