Outdoor Living

Living in Dubai we are spoilt with the option to spend so much time outdoors, but most people don’t think further than a teak patio set with a sun umbrella through the hole in the middle of the table.

For me, outdoor living is about decorating the outside and bringing life to a garden, so you can in fact LIVE outdoors not just sit.

This is my lovely majlis, the cushions have changed over the years and although I would probably recommend outdoor fabrics that don’t fade in the sun, like Sunbrella, I would rather have indoor pillow which are softer, cheaper and I’ll throw them in the outside shed when I’m not using them. These were made with a sewing machine and a big pile of old saris and Indian silk offcuts from Meena Bazaar in Bur Dubai, and the curtains from a selection of 99.Aed per panel from Homecenter.
