Prepare your home and garden for summer '21 - Urban Nest

Ingeborg Bruinewoud |

We are actually already in the middle of the heat wave. You, like many expats, may be going back "home" or visiting family this summer. But not everyone can go home so easily, due to the coronavirus. This blog will be all about summer, to help you prepare and make the most of your summer, while coping with the heat of the sun.


Final Phase

The last weeks of the year can be particularly tough. Finishing everything, looking after yourself and your loved ones, taking care of presents, and all in these temperatures! Gifts for the teachers are a must, they deserve an extra compliment, especially during this time. But this year you don't have to spend hours looking for the perfect gift because we have put together the cutest ones for you.

          1. To be allowed to completely unwind: Gift Hamper – meditation

          2. 70s ceramics: Ristretto mugs

          3. Ceramic scented candle: casa fruits

          4. Ceramic flower vase

          5. Walk in the Park Bouquet

          6. And if you really don’t know; Give a gift card. That way, the person can order his/her favorite product(s). Did you know that there are four different gift cards you can give?

Are you going to visit your family or move back? Then take along an art print of your own neighborhood in Dubai for yourself or your closest ones! Because they are rolled up for you, they fit perfectly in your suitcase. And do you want to give the gift in such a way that they can be hung on the wall right away? Choose one of our frames and we will make sure that your gift is complete and safe to take home.

Another great and original gift is the Paper vases from Tiny Miracles. They are handmade by women from the Pardeshi community and will not only make your company happy but also these women and their families.

In the mornings and evenings, it can be wonderful to step outside and enjoy your garden. But during the day this is too warm. With our indoor/outdoor collection you can enjoy both places in a stylish way and you don't have to buy twice as much!

Take care of yourself and your loved ones and look for the shade, even if it's cloudy. These super happy and cheerful umbrella’s from Doris vintage are perfect for summer.

To totally immerse your home in the tropical atmosphere, you can combine the wallpapers with some furniture made out of wood, such as: Abaca/teak lounge chairs, our circle swing and a beautiful large plant. Bali vibes guaranteed!
