As an Interior Designer and Founder of Harf Noon Design Studio, Nisrine's home is a treasure trove of impeccable décor and styling. She invites us in to share her beautiful preparations and favorite memories of Ramadan.

What does Ramadan mean to you?

The month of Ramadan is a special month of the year in which I strive to reduce work so that I spend more time in worship and more time with my family and children at home.

What is your favorite memory of Ramadan?

One of the dearest memories is when my siblings and I were young and would prepare the table, then sit and wait eagerly for the iftar cannon.

What is your most cherished tradition?

I always care for and love exchanging dishes of food and sweets with the neighbors, and even if Ramadan this year is a little different, I will definitely continue sharing delicious recipes for my neighbors to try at home.

What do you like to wear during Ramadan?

I like my looks to be very comfortable, I like to wear abayas, and I love pieces that I can layer.

Describe a typical iftar/suhoor at home.

The ideal iftar table is one that definitely contains soup, a salad plate and a main course – and let’s not forget the pastries because the table isn’t complete without them. As for the suhoor, I like it to be light and include fruits, nuts, a cup of tea and a cup of coffee. The table will definitely look more beautiful and complete when we use plates from L'Objet, cutlery from Cutipol, and serving trays from Michael Aram.

What do you love to gift during Ramadan?

In my opinion, the best gift during Ramadan is a set of candles, Mubkhar or room diffuser. This way you ensure that the receiver thinks of you every time they use them. A second option would be a curated bouquet from Bloomr.

What tips can you give for creating an on-trend table setting?

My advice on creating a wonderful iftar table this Ramadan is to be bold with your choices. It’s an ideal opportunity to try new colors and to incorporate more than one style that you wouldn’t normally try.
