Hooman Majd

Words Thomas Elliott

Hooman Majd was born in 1957 in Tehran, Iran. He lived abroad from infancy with his family, who were in the diplomatic service and attended boarding school in England and college in the United States,  staying in the U.S. after the Islamic Revolution of 1979. Majd had a long career in the entertainment business before devoting himself full-time to writing and journalism.

He has a wonderful blog House of Majd, which we lifted all the pictures from, some of the most eloquent words are on style:

“Style: an overused word these days, to be sure. Not all style is good, but all style expresses individuality, and these pages express mine. Style is not about impressing other people, it’s not about fashion or about wealth; it’s about how you live your life with what you can have. Here, you be the judge. ~Hooman Majd.
