Something wonderful is happening around here. Autumn has arrived and as of the last week or so, you can actually feel it. This is BIG news for us desert dwellers. The UAE summer is (very, very) long and sweltering and when the rest of the Northern hemisphere start to move indoors as winter draws nearer, we do the exact opposite. Leaving the comfort of our air-conditioned surroundings, we start to venture outside for more than 10 minutes at a time.
It’s officially time to dust off the patio furniture and embrace Dubai’s golden months. Yes, please!
These moderate temperatures, which by the way are still well into the mid-30s (degrees C), have got me thinking about outdoor living and there’s a particular trend that’s got my full attention. Enter the wood table and white chair combination.
I’ve seen a lot of this look indoors, and I love that too, but it’s time to take this one outside.
Thought you might appreciate some tips on how to get a similar look for your outdoor space.
IKEA table and chairs set // acrylic glasses // IKEA outdoor umbrella // tropical pillow // grey pillow // Armadillo outdoor rug // IKEA outdoor trolley // IKEA outdoor armchair // IKEA outdoor tray table
You can pick up almost all of these items at your local IKEA store, making it even easier to take things outside in the next few weeks.
Since I’m celebrating my blog’s two year anniversary this month, and because the folks at IKEA UAE are just really nice like that, they’ve given me a Dhs 500 gift voucher to give away to one lucky House of Hawkes reader!
