Congratulations Jennifer Russ!

InsideOut, the UAE’s number one interiors title, in association with Marina Home Interiors, revealed the winner of its Home of the Year 2016 at a cocktail party held at China Grill Terrace, Westin Mina Seyahi on 14th November 2016.

Now in its third year, this unique initiative received a record number of entries, and Dubai resident Jennifer Russ was named the overall winner. Her home in The Lakes was considered by the expert judging panel to be unique, discerning and eclectic with great attention to detail.

Editor Sharon Parsons said: ‘What impressed everyone about Jennifer’s home is its cohesion and confident execution throughout, with a strong colour scheme, balanced use of furnishings, and fantastic finishing touches. Every aspect has been considered, right down to the curated collection of objects from around the world, which gives her home such personality and style. This is a home that exudes great taste, and is full of interest.’

Sahar Vakil, Head of Brand Development at Marina Home, added: 'There was a distinct and authentic representation of personality and diverse journey celebrated in Jennifer's home. We were drawn in to the warmth created by use of natural elements juxtaposed to the dramatic highlights of black. However, her home’s most unique characteristic is its innate ability to rouse storytelling in any corner, from the discreet wall art to the bold pieces of furniture.'
