More Chic Stripes

As much as I love them, I don't think I have the patience, energy or budget to have stripes painted in my new apartment.  But I was thinking that maybe I could handle them in the bathroom.  Black and white seems to be a popular choice as seen by Stephen Shubel, above who used them twice.  I love the yellow although that color won't work in my space, the teal blue shade could be a contender.  I definitely see some paint samples in my future.

Masjid Nabvi Wallpaper

 Masjid Nabvi WallpaperSome information About Islam

The Word "Islam"

The "root" of the word "Islam" in Arabic is SALAMA which is the origin of the words Peace & / or Submission, a submission to God and peace to all humanity. It is, thus, no wonder why the salutation in Islam is: "Al-Salamu Alaikum or Peace on You." 

In this regard, Prophet Mohammad (S.A.W) ordered his fellow Muslims to salute others Muslims or non-Muslims with peace when he said: "Peace Before Speech"
It is a Rule in Islam that during war time, an enemy warrior who pronounces the word peace is totally immune. 

Justice & Fairness to Non-Muslims

In This regard, Muslims are governed by the rules that the relationship with non-Muslims should be based on justice, mutual respect, cooperation, and communication. The Quran is very explicit about the justice part of the relationship when Allah stated in Verse 60:08 "Allah forbids you not, with regard to those who fight you not for (your) Faith nor drive you out of your homes, from dealing kindly and justly with them: for Allah loveth those who are just."

Chic Striped Studio

I've received so many lovely comments and emails about my upcoming move but one reader from Amsterdam took things a bit further.  She emailed me photos to prove that you can live chicly in a studio.  Marijke Beumer is an interior designer in The Netherlands and lives in a beautiful studio that she decorated herself. She has not only made me realize that I have a lot to live up to but has me absolutely desperate to paint stripes on my new walls.  Her website isn't up yet but I expect good things to come from this talented designer.  I also want to know what came in all those Hermes boxes!  Chic indeed!
