Put some style in to your home with our hot list of handy design tips.
The hot list: Wall Street shuffle
1. Building blocks
Eco Wallpaper's new Street collection takes its inspiration from street life and everyday objects such as wooden planking, raw concrete and gold-plated candelabra. The collection is full of contrasts, dramatic patterns and rough textures, drawing on everything from building facades to building sites.
- Eco Wallpaper is available from Kollektion and Co, Dubai
2. A bright idea
Tavola stores in Dubai are now stocking the Aqua collection by Guzzini. The range is made out of a light, transparent acrylic, making it durable, dishwasher safe, BPA-free and bright and versatile enough to be used indoors and out.

3. Paper trail
Contrary to Kermit's claim, being green has become a whole lot easier since the opening of The Change Initiative in Al Barsha. New in the store are iPad, iPhone and Mac laptop sleeves by Papernomad. Made from toxin-free, biodegradable paper, wool and organic linen, they are the recipient of a prestigious Red Dot award.

4. Super ceramics
If you're looking for a cheap and cheerful way to spruce up your table this season, the Dot Com Gift Shop has a new range of Japanese- and French-inspired ceramic bowls that could do the trick. Bright, colourful and cute, they'd be perfect for all your post-summer parties.

5. Essential spoils
Neom Luxury Organics has launched Invigorate Home and Travel candles, which blend the scents of fresh grapefruit and bergamot with a touch of lime. The candles are made using only vegetable wax and pure essential oils. Each home candle has three wicks and burns for up to 55 hours - 30 per cent longer than standard premium candles - while the travel candles have a single wick and burn for about 20 hours.
