International experience and travel gives designer a fresh eye
Huma Sulaiman’s first break in the design business came from a friend who asked her to help furnish ‘Taj Vivanta’ in Yeshwanthpur after she had seen Sulaiman’s home in Bengaluru. That opportunity led to a meeting with the general manager, who gave Sulaiman her first job.
From a very young age, Sulaiman has been living and traveling around the world, taking in the visual details of her surroundings with a designer’s eye. These early childhood experiences have stuck with her and shaped how she approaches each new project. During the development phase, with each new client, Sulaiman likes to ask for images that inspire them, in addition to learning about their lifestyle and what they are passionate about. She also observes the way they dress to get a deeper sense of their style. From this, Sulaiman creates a collage of images from which to work off of and create her design plan.
