Conversation snippet from this week:
"If you were born a boy, you're name would be Charlie".
"Charlie?! Mmmh..... or Jibreel..... or Achmed!"
"Eh..... or Achmed....."
Almost 6 months we are living in Dubai now and our youngest daughter is talking about names we normally don't hear.
She even pronouns the 'ch' in Achmed with a perfect accent.
Amazing how fast adaption to a different environment can be.
Dubai is a city filled with contradictions.
Colours in interiors versus desert sand coloured houses.
Very rich and very poor people walking the same streets.
Bright lights, big city yet it maintains a small city feeling in so many neighbourhoods.
The list is long and divers and it makes this city a vibrant place to be.
I'm glad we are living here and soaking it all up!
Our apartment is still in need of some more decoration, so when I headed to the bookstore this weekend,
to by a present, I found a great book, full of inspiring photo's and texts.
And you know when I like something, I like to share it.
Marrakech by Design is filled with colours. But even a white interior lover like myself have to say,
I really like this book! It gave me great inspiration to combine with my white interior, so I bought it as well. It's filled with great decorating tips and how to's. I already changed some small things around here, that's how inspired I am. And the beautiful photo's give you a peek inside homes filled with Morrocan styles.
You can also go to Maryam's blog, My Marrakech, her online store Red Thread Souk,
or visit her boutique hotel in Marrakech if you always wanted to go there, Peacock Pavilions.
Yes, we are influenced already by some Arabian names, colours and styles.
And that's how we roll lately, mixing it all up.
Just the way I like it.
See you soon!
