Gypsum is commonly ussed here in Saudi Arabia to decorate walls and ceilings. Frequently it is painted, often in gold leaf. Saudi taste in decor tends to run more on the formal side. I’ve often heard the term “Saudi Gaudy” to describe typical fancy Saudi design elements, from furniture to window coverings and everything in between. I noticed this gypsum embellishing in a local hotel.
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.
