Home of the Week: Address Downtown Dubai

2387-AR_1512_Home_Of_The_Week-4-thumb-400x600-2386.jpgIf you saw this weekend's edition of H&H, you can't have failed to have been impressed by the interior styling Pallavi Dean (right) and Angelita Alves did on this week's Home of the Week, an apartment in the Address Downtown Dubai. Sourcing pieces and furnishings exclusively from local shops and companies, and with a brief to appeal to the discerning, design-savvy client, the Dubai-based team created a scheme that was sophisticated yet quirky and ulitmately unique; sucecessfully marrying modern Scandinavian and classic European design with contemporary intepretations of traditional Arabic motifs.


We never have the space in the section to show all the photographs from our HOTW's shoot, and we think that these in particular deserve a comprehensive airing, so here's the full selection...


  1. 2403-HH07JA-HOTW05-thumb-400x600-2402.jpg1. The tables and shelving unit are by Muuto, available from Dubai's Kollektion & Co.

    2. Alarm clocks were mounted and used to create this quirky piece of wall art.

    The lettering was custom made.


3. The black Acapulco chair, available here from The One, is a 1950s design classic that still retains its cool, contemporary edge. The stool is by Nada Debs from O'de Rose and the wall ladder coat hook is from Bloomingdales Home, Dubai Mall.


4. Muuto's wooden anglepoise lamp and the inventive stationery storage area/wall decor made using wine racks bring a playful finishing touch to this compact work station. 

5. The face of the iconic Egyptian singer Umm Kulthum features on this striking yellow cushion from Dubai's O'de Rose boutique. The wall art is from Crate & Barrel, Mall of the Emirates.
