So there I was in Naivas supermarket, making a quick dash to the cashew nuts section, when what do I happen to see past the corner of my eye……a pretty decent ombre carpet (PS: Ombré describes the gradual blending of one color to another).
I hear angels sing and a harp play in the background as I walk towards this unexpected piece of art.
For those who aren’t from these neck of the woods, i.e. Kenya, you must be wondering why I’m being so dramatic about it. Without being too blunt all I’ll say is that Naivas isn’t known for its brilliant design pieces. Okay, moving on swiftly…
I just couldn’t believe it! I’d been searching for an ombre carpet for a client who had a really tight budget and there it was staring right at me. Seeing that it was below my predicted cost (its retailing at 7,800/- Ksh) I was sure my client would be hearing those angels singing too.
