6am: Wake up
“Don’t forget I am a mom of an eighteen, sixteen and six year old! So I wake up by obligation not by choice. BUT when I start really early, it’s the best day for me!”.
7:15-7:30am: Get to the office
“I live three minutes away, so my commute is really easy! It’s the best time to start with coffee. I can never put on music and work; I need quiet! During calm periods I read emails, hang out, plan and organize. During busy times, it’s all about creating, experimenting and working with a lot of excitement. Most of my work centers around designs and colors. Working with color is my passion, I absolutely love it. A lot of Images D’Orient is based on color design.”
1 – 2pm: Lunch with Charbel (brother and partner)
“But sometimes there isn’t even time for lunch! And other times in order to create I need to be away from the office. During that time I usually run….no interruptions, no emails, no phone calls."
5pm: Head back to home to the kids for family time
“And I might pass by the hairdresser.”
10pm: Read before sleeping
“When it is your business, it is always in your head. So I think about it all the time, even when I sleep! Inspiration is everything and everywhere.”
