With the creation of an eponymous home collection, CEO, designer and fashion icon Iman encourages us to mix exotic elements into our daily lives.
As a multitalented mogul whose activities run the gamut from attending meetings for her popular brands (Iman Cosmetics and Iman Global Chic for HSN) to making red-carpet appearances, Iman is overjoyed about her recently launched Iman Home collection. "Fashion and beauty are my businesses, but my passion has always been in textile and home decor," she explains. The ageless beauty and avid globe-trotter says she designs with the idea that "great rooms are great escapes." The common thread in all her work is timeless style. Her approach is rooted in a life-altering gig in her early twenties for designer Yves Saint Laurent at his home in Morocco, the Majorelle Garden: "I have never seen a combination of colors like that. It left an imprint on how I live." She wanted to bring that "whisked away" feeling to the masses at an affordable price. "I want them to feel transported," she says. Her tip on how to include your style into your haven: "Add decorative pillows. They pull the room scheme together."
