Mirror House, Kuwait City

(4.3/5 based on 110+ reviews on the web)
Home of married artists Khalifa Qattan and Italian-born Lidia, Mirror House boasts radiant and colorful mosaics from inside out. The house exterior sharply contrasts with the suburban neighborhood, while its interior mosaics depict epic themes of earth, universe, sea, and knowledge. According to Lidia, she began creating the mosaics when her daughter broke a mirror while her husband was away. This practice, which her husband loved, turned into an obsession. Today, each room is covered with mosaics from floor to ceiling. An art gallery upstairs features works by both artists, some of which are for sale.
