I guess it’s just a matter of personal taste, but it’s my belief that less is usually more and I prefer minimalist styling and understated elegance. I know whoever built this building had every good intention of trying to make it look like an upscale fancy place, but all the sheer quantity of all the over-the-top details just make it look way too busy and garishly overdone. All together it’s unnecessarily excessive and detracts from what should be showcased here – the businesses themselves. This is an all too common misstep that I’ve seen here in sense of styles ranging from home decor to women’s make-up. I’ve even heard a name given to this type of style: “Saudi Gaudy.”
About This Blog, and About Me: Susie of Arabia
Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, is KSA's 2nd largest city and is located on its west coast, right on the Red Sea. I moved here in 2007 with my Saudi hubby. This journal reflects the things that I see here, life through my eyes, my lens.
Please be sure to also visit my other blog, SUSIE OF ARABIA (formerly SUSIE'S BIG ADVENTURE), which relates my experiences, thoughts, and observations about living in Saudi Arabia.
