[I] Have discovered the ultimate therapy. An afternoon chatting with Alidad in his perfect Mayfair sitting room and I am completely restored!
H.D. guest from London
The most touching thing for me to see was the total openness of another human being and to be able to listen and learn from the journey of a timeless artist. Alidad is timeless and his home really is timeless.
Superb, superb, superb!

Today I had the great privilege of spending the day with Alidad. It was a day I will carry with me for a long time and I believe that this experience has even changed me a little – in a positive way. It’s about more than just inspiration. It also affects the philosophy of life.

Thank you dear Alidad for this wonderful moment from another era entirely.
It was an immense joy to be part of this out of time gathering filled with a voluptuous beauty so soothing to the soul […] beauty is indeed good for oneself.

The day shared attending At Home with Alidad, is a day I will not forget. It is rare, to find a kindred spirit who is so passionate and joyful about his vocation.
Alidad’s enthusiasm and generosity was evident in every detail from the custom booklets provided, the delicious lunch, to the engaging conversation throughout the event. The unique experience of being invited into such a beautiful private home was a privilege and it has left a deep impression upon me.
Thank you Alidad and to all the staff who made this day so special.

It was a wonderful day – and so interesting to hear about Alidad’s background and how he came to be in the interior design world from an informed previous career. Very insightful to hear how Alidad approaches the design process. Alidad revealed some of his golden design rules with regards to proportion, size and patterns etc. leaving one with some valuable nuggets to store and bear in mind when approaching a design project of one’s own.
Catriona Fletcher, guest from London
It was a wonderfully insightful and inspirational day. To see behind some of the projects and to understand the degree of knowledge, not just of interior design but of eclectic cultures past and present, and craftsmanship that goes into creating an Alidad Interior was eye-opening. And that was one of the biggest take-aways, the degree to which he walks through the world with his eyes open!
Griselda Roupell, guest from London
Most charismatic, entertaining and very instructive talk. Have learned a lot!
Isabelle Beresford-Peyman, guest from London

In the beautiful setting of Alidad’s incredible home, the day just passed in no time […] Alidad was extremely helpful, full of information and ideas […] it could not have been more enjoyable.
Jamie Sinai, guest from London
A day with Alidad is an absolutely delightful experience, which clearly speaks to all senses. It is not just about interior design, but the room fragrances, the light music in the background and the atmosphere. He leads through the day with great ease. Charming, professional and modest, which is a rare quality in this day and age! The event is perfectly organized, yet there is a nonchalant feeling to it. And the place! You feel incdredible comfortable in it right from the start, despite the amazing design. It is truly timeless!
Evelyn, guest from Germany
5 star treatment from beginning to end! I greatly enjoyed learning from Alidad’s wealth of experience and his design process. I must say it is a real honour to spend time in Alidad’s home, with every room meticulously planned and executed. It was amazing to learn that this fascinating apartment was Alidad’s very first project some 30 years ago, and it’s shining beauty is testament to the timelessness of his work. In my humble opinion the Dining Room and Red Room are amongst the most unique and interesting rooms I have ever encountered. Bravo and thank you!
