The boutique’s feminine interiors are styled with thoughtful consideration, reflecting the atelier’s approach to its jewels. A symphony of pastels in white, beige and blush is brought alive by architectural elements like floor accents and decorative plasterwork on the walls, creating an intuitive path for the discovery of Zoya’s many treasures. Signature chandeliers handcrafted from the sustainable pulp of banana leaves in white and blush weave their way through the store, adding a flowing feel to one’s journey through the boutique. Display windows are adorned with finely crafted paper art echoing the fables of inspiration behind each resplendent piece.
