Chalked up

Make sure that you always have somewhere to jot down your thoughts with this pretty magnetic chalkboard. It's meant for kids' rooms, but would look just as great in the kitchen with your shopping list sprawled all over it. Dh249, Indigo Living, Dubai

Heart felt

This might not be your most practical purchase ever, but on those odd days that the temperatures do drop in the UAE, be prepared with this adorable water bottle by Gisela Graham. Dh75, Indigo Living, Dubai

Shapely addition

Spice up your outdoor spaces with this oversized candle by Broste Copenhagen. The Danish company's products are all made from the purest raw materials, so this candle is guaranteed to maintain its shape while emitting minimal amounts of soot and smoke. Dh105, Bloomingdale's Home, Dubai Mall

Bowled over

New to Bloomingdale's Home and available outside of the US for the first time, Julia Knight's handcrafted serveware is something we're coveting. This oval bowl from the Peony collection comes in a range of colours but we particularly love the deliciously named Raspberry version. Dh300, Bloomingdale's Home

Handy extras

Give an old sofa new life with a smattering of these bright pink Hand of Fatima cushions. They'll ward off the evil eye - and keep you bang on-trend as well. Bargain! Dh575, Bloomingdale's Home

Wiped out

Brighten up a drab table setting with these hot pink napkins from Zara Home. Dh145 for four. Make sure to pair them with a plain white napkin holder for eye-catching contrast. Dh95 for four, Zara Home stores nationwide
