About Ale Akinbiyi:
Ale (short for Alexandra) is originally from Italy and has been happily breathing the UAE air for 11 years now. For the past decade, she has designed, furnished, and styled beautiful spaces with the goal to always wow her customers, because she knows, that you never get a second chance to make a first impression. Ale had the pleasure to work with the most luxurious brands across Italy, Germany, and the UAE. From brand communication agencies to franchise retailers all the way to running her own company.
She has a proven track record of success with brands such as Pagani, Missoni, Crate & Barrel, Stella Mc Carney, Harvey Nichols, Aati, Erdem, BMW, Mubadala, Philip Morris, Gap, to name a few; with whom she styled homes, launched new products, created dazzling fashion shows, grand store openings, designed pop-ups, and created luxurious customer journeys.
Ale looks where no one is looking to see what no one is seeing. A shelf with color-coded books, a console with leather trays for your keys, and an atmosphere that makes you feel at ease every time you enter. A bathroom with the right accessories, scents, and textures. A bedroom that has the right amount of pillows, and throws for you to receive a good night's sleep. Or a living room, with the right amount of furniture, art, lighting, and plants for you to unwind and relax.
It is the way she places items, the combination of items, and the color palette she chooses. She is particularly good with details and can really bring a space to life.
Some people look for a beautiful place, Ale makes a place look beautiful.
