Amira is a popular social media influencer, content creator, Youtuber and Entrepreneur. She is a big brand commanding over 505,000 followers on Instagram and 8,000 plus subscribers on YouTube. She is well known to the public as the official wife of popular city businessman Jamal Roho safi.
The Arabic influence and Egyptian style that is full of rich textures can’t go unnoticed in this lavish address. The golden colors give the house a feel of elegance and class. In an exclusive interview with Nailantei Kenga in the Art of Living show that aired on KTN TV, Amira revealed that the interior décor was Dubai-inspired.
“This is my style, I am inspired from where I used to live. I lived in Dubai for almost six years. So basically the inspiration comes from there,” she said.
She went on to explain that she came back to Kenya from Dubai in mid-2019 and has been living in the house for two years now. She revealed that she made sacrifices and acquired the house while she was still in Dubai. The house comes with a parking space, front yard and back yard.
The living room is simply elegant with white painted walls, silver-bright chandeliers, Egyptian comfy chairs, golden tables and a huge flat screen television mounted on the wall. It has expansive windows that allow natural light to penetrate inside the house and the ambiance is adorable. The space is completed with a floral wallpaper, Persian carpet, two golden statues and a fireplace located in the right hand side of the living room. There are also different art paintings and flower vases sourced locally and internationally.
“I bought the fireplace in China and I wanted to install it below my TV Stand. Unfortunately it was too big and so I decided to put it on the right side just to keep us warm during the cold season,” she said.
The first thing you notice at the dining area is the change of the wall painting from white to grey. There is a glamorous glass table with magnificent silver chairs able to accommodate six people. The dining table is more of a décor and no one sits there. She did a lot of renovations at the space immediately she moved in.
“Initially I had a sink and an aquarium here and it didn’t feel nice. When I moved in I repainted the wall gray and mounted this flashy bright mirror on the wall,” she explained.
The Kitchen is an open setting one with white cabinets and a marble top island table. The gold and white theme extends to this space with a mosaic wall near the sink.
“The kitchen initially had brown cabinets. We took the tiles out, the cabinets and changed the wall painting. Everything was done from scratch to fit my preferences,” she said.
The kitchen has an inbuilt oven, a modern microwave and fancy utensils including magnificent glass cups and plates.
The Master Bedroom is situated in the upstairs of the mansion. On the way to the ensuite bedroom is an aquarium with golden fish sourced from Zanzibar. Immediately you step in the master bedroom, the gypsum ceiling and the golden chandeliers catch your eye. There is a huge magnificent bed where according to her she ‘sleeps, cries, relaxes and prays from.’ The room has huge sliding glass doors that allow natural air in making it look more spacious. She has a walk-in closet equipped with her traveling hats, handbags and designer perfumes.
