Kera Thompson is the design mind behind the global textile destination, Interwoven. We have featured her and her colorful collection of textiles on the blog before. When it came time to present our first house tour of the year in our Remix House Tour Series with Apartment Therapy, we knew immediately that we wanted to tour Kera’s stunning home in the UAE. Home to Kera and her husband McSean, and gorgeous littles ones – Owen, Asher and Elena, this modern, cultural family home has some truly inspired style.
That the former model and mother of three has an eye for fashion-forward textiles becomes obvious after just one look at her stylish home in the Emirates. A few looks more at Thompson’s stylish abode reveals a modern family space in which white walls dominate the interior, while sleek, streamlined furnishings serve as the perfect counterpoint to the home’s numerous cultural touches. Throughout the home, Kera’s enviable collection of global textiles is the final touch, adding layers of warmth and sophistication through the use of color and pattern.
A creator and purveyor of “artisanal home decor”, Thompson’s home superbly combines the aesthetic of a well-travelled citizen of the world with the needs of an active family home. Her children are right at home amidst her collection of global treasures. Here, Indian poufs and hand-carved stools become the perfect perching spot for little ones. A vintage kantha quilt draped lovingly adorns the crib in her daughter’s nursery. And antique kilim pillows scattered about the sofa add comfort and style to the family’s living room.
Redefining what many of us expect from the home of a growing family of five, Kera has curated a contemporary space where the modern and the cultural sit together beautifully side-by-side. With her mission of bringing artisanal and storied pieces to homes around the globe, this designer, mother and model has created a unique space where cultural style reigns supreme.
