Give Your Home a Makeover

What makes a house a home is how you decorate the interiors. Yes, each room in your home needs to serve its purpose. But it should also be welcoming to the people living in it and for their guests. When you do up your interiors, every piece of furniture and accessory plays an important role. We find out the latest trends to give your home a new look for the new season.

It’s all about prints
From graphics and geometrics, ikats and kilims to plaids and paisleys, prints are making a comeback in home furnishings and fabrics this season. Combined with a muted or a neutral background, these colourful prints can add a special touch to every room in your house.

Walk into Crate & Barrel at the Mall of the Emirates, Dubai for bright, contemporary furnishings to brighten up your indoors.

Understated luxury
Dubai has always loved luxury. Now people have moved away from expensive labels and over-the-top décor. There is a growing trend towards real craftsmanship and understated luxury. Instead of highly glossy and crystal studded features and fittings with a lot of glitter and bling, it’s all about adding subtle touches with materials like brass, silver and mother of pearl. Now you can make a muted statement in your home with Marina Home’s collections, available at the Mall of the Emirates, Dubai. Marina’s selection will create a visual harmony in your homes. With products sourced from more than 20 countries across 4 continents, Marina’s designs combine the classic and the contemporary, modern with the rustic and the avant garde with the exotic.

Go all white
A pristine, all white decor is inviting, serene and romantic. You can easily get this look from White Company at the Mall of the Emirates. Their collection of stylish and beautifully designed products speaks of quality and yet remains affordable. The attention to detail is seen in everything from the hand-stitching on a luxurious high thread-count pillowcase to the clean lines of their furniture.

Traditional makes a comeback
Traditional handicrafts get some well-deserved attention this year as one of the most trending home designs. Crafts from all around the world can add an elegant touch to your home. Walk into Persian Carpet House at the Mall of the Emirates to shop for authentic hand-tufted carpets, handicrafts and antiques from the region. They are one of the biggest retailers and wholesalers of rugs and carpets in the Emirates.

The latest trend in the home design scene has the vintage combining with the contemporary, with old family heirlooms finding a place alongside your new buys. The other places where you can get great buys for your home are Zara Home, Home Sweet Home, Home Center, Grand Home, ID Design, Al Jaber Gallery, MOOD, Tanagra, The Red Carpet, The One and Villeroy & Boch.
It will be exciting to see how every homemaker interprets these trends to create a new look for their living spaces for this new season.
