Originals. The real deal. A statement piece. That is what sums up design for us.
Investing in design is something most people don’t do overnight. It is is a process.
You might fall in love with a piece of design furniture when you are young and save up for it to finally call it your own many years after your first encounter. Or maybe you inherit a statement piece from a family member because you were always eying it. Whatever the story is, it is about surrounding yourself with furniture that you will love for the rest of your life.
It has been a while since we styled a playroom. And this one is quite a special one as it’s more of a playground. It is one of the rooms that we designed for the villa on Zaya Nurai Island, a large and beautiful open space with natural light and an arched entrance. Kids with the ages between 0 to 11 will be playing here so we could not wait to get started.
We had a very good excuse to visit Paris this month. Maison & Objet had been on our wish list for some years and this time we made sure we would not miss it. A perfect reason to visit suppliers that we have been working with for a long time, find newbies to possibly collaborate with. More on our very favorites will soon be up on the blog.
This trip also gave us the possibility to visit influential Parisian places, inspirational stores and gastronomic restaurants. We re-visited some of the top tips from our Paris Escape list and also discovered some new gems.
The Dubai Design week 2017 were kicked off yesterday with the opportunity for bloggers to visit the trade fair before the crowds come in. Why? Well, we just love to get a good shot of some beautiful design without someone behind it that we otherwise would need to shop away. Anything for a perfect pic right?
This early bird special does get us in the mood for this week because this is the most inspirational time for design lovers like us in Dubai. Design, in any shape or form, is an essential part of our life. It is something genuine and interesting, and we love learning about it and being surprised by it’s functionality or creativity.
