In Gemmayzeh, at Diana Ghandour’s house

Lebanese interior designer, Diana Ghandour, opens the doors of her home, a triplex nestled in Beirut’s lively Gemmayzeh district. This all-white sanctuary, signed by her office, Diana Ghandour Studio, is the embodiment of her vision where art and design meet to create quiet and distinctive havens of peace.

Furniture consultant and interior designer, Diana Ghandour embodies the perfect amalgam of perspectives, instincts and skills required to create not just homes but real living spaces where it is possible to recharge one’s batteries. For her own home, a triplex in Beirut’s Gemmayzeh district, she applies the same measures of patience and creativity that she offers to her clients. Her process is based on two of her favorite principles: familiarizing herself with the property to fully understand its psychology, and focusing on the furniture as the key note of her home. So it is with the long sofa undulated according to the curves, from which she draws the stairs which overhang it. This roundness of shapes and this fluidity of lines are favored everywhere for their softness and the calm they inspire. Furthermore, the tones chosen also mark the same tempo without harshness. Touches of color scattered throughout the rooms give them a pronounced but never discordant character. Added to this is the interplay of materials such as wood, marble, granite and natural fabrics. Everything here breathes life and juxtaposes… just like in true nature. It is in this reflection that the eye comes to rest on the living wall. Echoing the climbing plants of the facades and the trees and flowers in the inner courtyard, the rampart of greenery extends over the entire length of the two upper floors. In addition to this green touch, the wall structures are white and minimalist. Supporting them in their zen mission, the tall windows and large french doors, dotted throughout the spaces, weave a thread of natural light which illuminates the place throughout the day. This impression of intimate tranquility is accentuated thanks to the very personal objects that the designer has chosen to display as an integral part of the decor. Here and there, crystal works by Daum or, the jewel of the vestibule, a Kawai Crystal grand piano. Nothing, however, matches the individuality generated by the addition of concepts created by the designer, such as this row of high chairs or this sideboard that the visitor can observe in the dining room. Often illustrated on her Instagram account Whats_hipp through which she conducts her business, these objects enhance their environment with a personalized touch. Paradoxically, the well-thought-out eclecticism of the decoration connects the areas and functions, imbuing the whole with the scent of the unforgettable.
