Multicultural Woman Strives to Enhance Cultural Understanding and Acceptance by Sharing Home Accent Pieces from Morocco
Nawal Mesrour, 27, was born in the US, to Moroccan parents. She was raised in southern Spain and visits Morocco regularly. Having spent a substantial amount of time living in three very different societies, the intermingling of cultures has always felt natural and genuine to Nawal. She was inspired to build a business focused on bringing a touch of the exotic to US homes.
Nawal moved to New York City in 1999, where she spent 8 years. She found the cultural diversity invigorating, and it was there, in her tiny, overpriced apartment that she began envisioning her dream job. "Souks (marketplaces) in Morocco are so beautiful and visually stimulating," Nawal says, "but they tend to be overcrowded with different kinds of items. I knew that to appeal to US buyers, I needed to focus on something specific, so I chose home decor pieces. Items that anyone could use to accent rooms in their home." It is becoming increasingly common to see Moroccan (style) light fixtures and other adornments in elegant and fashionable businesses. Why not bring a touch of the exotic home?
"My life has been based on the mingling and the fusion of very different cultures and customs. I have come to not only accept this diversity but to sincerely want to share it with others, in an effort to bring us closer together as the human community that we are," says Nawal.
