Presenting Salima Abdel-Wahab

Salima Abdel-Wahab is my latest discovery in the world of fashion and I wanted to share her with you today. She is not only a designer but also a true artist.

For me, her clothes are like pieces of art, the way fashion should be (but very seldom is) ! The collections embody her mixed cultural background and origins. You can feel her strong personality in the clothes, like a statement of her unique style and her inner world of imagination.

Salima Abdel-Wahab

Her universe is colorful and diverse, a fantastic mixture of textures, styles and colors ! There is a feeling of bohemia and poetry in her creations, always close to nature and flowers. You leave with a sensation of strongness and of softness, both at the same time, probably a reflection of her true diversity…

The newest interior project !

Here you can follow the latest project by TheMarigold! We are redoing the restaurant Casa Chez Papou in Tarifa, Spain. The restaurant clearly had an image problem from the start and the interior didn’t attract much people because of its dark walls and furniture.

The idea was to give it a new and more attractive touch, to brighten everything up on the inside and to have a more visible facade. We chose to do this by bringing in some eclectic  modern art and by painting all the furniture inside and outside in white (mixed with sand from the beach for a more rough and used touch). Firouz Farman-Farmaian then did some of his famous dripping in orange and red on each table and we covered the grey walls with a vibrant painting in 6 pieces to finalize the new artistic image of the restaurant.

On the tables you now find painted African pumpkins as candle holders and above the bar an old surfboard that Firouz has painted in the same color scheme.

The place is today an arty spot in Tarifa, famous for its original decor and its chicken dishes so do pop in for a bite and some of Papou’s famous cocktails if you happen to be in South of Spain !
