In Celebration of Women

Phillip Jeffries celebrates women around the globe who continually make their mark in the design world.


Urjowan Interiors
Urjowan Alsharif's Dubai design firm combines the global influence absorbed from her worldwide travels with the visual culture she experienced through her Saudi heritage to deliver a fresh understanding of the area's regional aesthetic, on that speaks to the new generation in the Gulf. A Saudi Interior Architect with a Masters degree in interior architecture from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, Urjowan established her own boutique design firm in Dubai in 2018. She elegantly deliver a fresh perspective for her clients.

For this project in Dubai, Urjowan chose the Phillip Jeffries mural, Mist. Authentic watercolor artwork captures a mystical, utopian horizon and transforms into this large, immersive mural wallcovering. The colorway, 4795 Dewdrop, creates a calming and ethereal vibe in this soaring dining room.

Modern, eclectic interiors is the signature design look of Michelle Gerson. Luxurious furnishings designed for the eye and built for comfort, coupled with deco and mid-century elements, are the keys of her aesthetic.
