Having been lucky enough to spend quite a lot of time in Dubai recently, and working with Jo at Tribe Dubai (tribedubai.com) I’ve learned that interior trends are a little different to those here in the UK. Coastal cool is the name of the game, and it’s easy to see why….this is what works best in a country where everyone needs a retreat from the heat of the desert sun.
White walls, cool floor tiles and neutral coloured furniture and accessories just seem to be the best fit for the climate. Beni Ouarain rugs with their neutral colour palettes and simple designs complement perfectly this look, but adding a limited amount of colour can look stunning too. A white or neutral backdrop is great to display a colourful Boucherouite rug, either on the floor or as a wall hanging. The predominantly ‘grey’ light that we have in the UK can dull colours a little, but in the bright white light of the Middle East, the colours in these rugs look amazing. Go along and see Jo at Tribe for advice about buying a Beni rug, we have lots of stock on the ground in Morocco in addition to our custom made service. Or be bold and take a look at our collection of colourful vintage Moroccan rugs! We have some stock already in Dubai, but your choice isn’t limited to these, we can ship worldwide from either the UK or Morocco. https://marbleandmint.co.uk/product-category/dubai-collection/
