W hen the weather outside is frightful, finding refuge in the comfort of your home is paramount. After you’ve spent your first summer in Dubai, you’ll come to realise just how much time is spent in the luxury of your living room compared to lounging by the pool.
So sprucing up your home for the summer might be pretty high up on your agenda, and if it is, a great place to start is O’de Rose in Umm Suqeim, where you’ll be instantly transported to an eclectic world of pop art designs and contemporary cool nuances to add to your side table.
This character-filled store is the brainchild of three friends from Beirut, London and New York, who wanted to start a project together in the Middle East that emotionally connected with all of them. While the name of the store comes from the French phrase “eau de rose”, meaning rose water, there is nothing French about what you’ll find in this boutique. Every cushion, couch, wall hanging, candle stand and vase is kissed with Arabian detailing.
The experience starts as you step inside, where you’ll be greeted with a signature rose water drink, the aroma of rose incense sticks and a modern Arabic playlist.
Meander through this colourful store to find a unique treasure for your dresser, or window shop to find inspiration in this Instagram-worthy space.
