Mother’s Day Spoils

Mother’s Day can be confusing in the multi-cultural society that is the UAE – with such a vast number of nationalities in one place, many of which celebrate Mother’s Day at different times of the year, it all becomes a bit puzzling – especially for the dads. consider this your ‘heads up’ if you’re from the USA, Canada, most European countries, Australia, New Zealand, India, China, Japan, the Philippines or South Africa where Mother’s Day is celebrated on the second Sunday in May – that’s this coming Sunday, 12 May.

It’s time to get the gift ideas rolling. And let me tell you, this isn’t the day for flying blind, so if you have been on the slow side of things we are here to give you a last minute helping hand. We have put together a roundup of some of our favourite goodies for mums, grans, nans, big sisters, best friends or aunties (or pop them on your wish list and eliminate the guessing game for your nearest and dearest). Grab a cuppa, kick back and check out our Mother’s Day gift guide.

  • We started work on this shared sibling room just before the summer and after long delays with some of the items we ordered, we finally managed to apply the finishing touches last month. There's a full reveal on the blog. Link in profile.

  • @d3dubai is one of my favourite Dubai districts. I'll be back there this afternoon with @liveloudgirl to talk about building a business in the social media age and our @fronteriors journey thus far. We kick off at 6pm if you around and would like to join us.  #downtowndesign #ddw2019
  • Yesterday was our first day in the new studio.  Given the distinct lack of furniture, we unpacked all the crazy onto the one @andtradition sofa that we have. 😝 Thanks to @marli_smithphotography for capturing this hilarious moment, like the new age working mum that she is - with a baby on her hip. We were just missing our other brand new mummy. New chapter starts here. #studiofronteriors #girlgang
  • Dreamy terrazzo feels at the @nwt.newterracotta exhibit at @downtowndesignd #ddw2019 #terrazzo #downtowndesign
  • Aw, look at these little guys sky-rocketing the cuteness scale in yesterday's nursery installation. And as for that colour (Exhale) from @jotunpaintsarabia 2020 collection, I'm smitten!
  • @marli_smithphotography and I tried to shoot my kitchen makeover today but rain has ended play unexpectedly.... hey ho, you can't get me down though, I'm loving this new space too much!
  • A busy and exciting week lies ahead, peeps! Aside of an installation to complete for a lovely new client, I'm right on the cusp of a super exciting milestone. @liveloudgirl and I are moving into a shared studio space... because since the inception of @fronteriors we're basically married so getting a place together seems like the obvious next step 😂 But seriously though, we're becoming a blended tribe of sorts and we are really excited for this next chapter of creativity, with our respective teams working side by side while we steer the runaway train that is fronteriors. 
The new studio is a dreamy blank canvas of endless artistic possibilities. We've already treated it to some @jotunpaintsarabia magic on the walls, but I suspect that that the evolution of this workspace will be constantly in motion. Stay tuned.

  • Forever discovering treasures in mom's office only to be told they're for someone else's room. She'll tell you that's the story of her life. Wonder where she gets that sense of drama? 🤔 🙎🏼‍♀️ 🐳 @bigstuffed

  • On the blog this morning is a better-late-than-never edition of our popular 'scene & heard' series. It's a look back at some of the team's summer highlights, including dreamy Netherlands coastal vibes and some Dubai gems discovered my Marli and Mila who spent a large chunk of the break locally.
