Inside Gigi Hadid’s eccentric New York apartment

DUBAI: Part-Palestinian model Gigi Hadid this week gave a rare glimpse into her New York home on Instagram. 

The pregnant Hadid, who is expecting her first child with former One Direction star Zayn Malik, posted a slideshow of ten images of her colorful abode on the social media platform, revealing her apartment underwent major decorative renovations just before quarantine.

Hadid, who has spent the last few months self-isolating at her mother Yolanda Hadid’s Pennsylvania farmhouse with her mom, sister Bella and Malik, shared that she spent the past year designing the space. 

“Spent all of last year designing and curating my passion project/dream spot,” she captioned the post. “Of course it all came together right before quarantining out of the city… but I’m excited for the time I’ll get to spend enjoying all the special corners that were made with a lil help from some of my favorite creatives who embraced my ideas and didn’t call me crazy (sic).”

Based on the images, the 25-year-old opted for an eclectic theme, complete with colorful patterns and textures. 

The mom-to-be showed off her eccentric living room, which boasts a sofa featuring cushions of different hues and textures, a Jean Paul Gaultier throw, a wooden coffee table and tons of crystals.

She also posted pictures of one of her bathrooms, which she covered with clippings of old New Yorker covers.

Another shot showcased the hallway that leads to the model’s dressing room, and is lit up with an array of Edison lights and decorated with a larger-than-life yellow ballpoint pen and a painting by artist Eamon Harrington.

Like her sofa, the Palestinian-Dutch catwalk star’s staircase was covered in vibrant carpet, with a different pattern for each step, that led to  a small brown bench and a blue painting from Austyn Weiner covered in abstract splotches.

She capped off the display with a breathtaking view of her master bathroom, complete with marble countertops, dark wood drawers and an all-marble room for the bathtub that overlooks the New York skyline. 

Hadid’s new home makeover comes just a couple of months before she is expected to give birth to her and Malik’s baby girl in September.

What We Are Eating Today: Cheese Taste

  • One of the best things about the shop is how well they treat their customers, offering to let them try different things while the visitor comes to a final decision

Looking at the Cheese Taste shop in Al-Safa district, Jeddah, I never expected the delicious treats that waited inside. It looks like a regular small-scale bakery, but stepping into the little shop and trying out their products was a new discovery.
Their pastries are of high quality and presented to visitors in two different sizes. The variety is mind-blowing — everything from plain chocolate cakes to carrot cakes.
Their carrot cakes are some of the best I have had. One of my other favorites is their strawberry tarts, which are a perfect combination of a crisp base, a creamy-smooth filling and glazed strawberries.

The prices are also very low — amazing because they don’t reflect the quality of the products.
