what

we did

pull open those yarn-wrapped doors and step into the most whimsical bar and restaurant.

with walls covered in mexican kitsch wallpaper as well as gypsy blue, hot pink, mustard yellow and minty green paint, the circular bar is lined with handmade tiles, and styled with dia de los muertos masks and colombian pendant lights made of woven strips from plastic bottles. on one side there is a playful blow-up cactus garden, and on the other there is a wall adorned with old bicycle tires framing cowboy boots, as well as crates filled with dolls and toys straight from the street markets in mexico city. a cactus-lined path leads to the outdoor terrace, where one can choose to sit at colorful tables or in sunken lounge areas covered in handmade guatemalan fabrics. either way, customers are overlooking the glistening ocean and watching a stunning sunset.

attention to detail is key, with el pato cans and crocheted cacti as table décor, and dining chairs individually wrapped with colorful yarn. all the tables and booths are custom designed, and the large booth is surrounded overhead and on the sides with crates filled with more dolls, toys and colorful blankets. the entrance to the washrooms area is filled with handmade frida kahlo dolls, and the male and female washroom distinction is made with barbie and ken dolls dressed in latin american traditional outfits pinned up to the door. inside, the washroom walls are half-lined in sombrero-wearing skeleton wallpaper and white plaster. outside, a cactus-lined path leads to the outdoor terrace, where one can choose to sit at colorful tables or in sunken lounge areas covered in handmade guatemalan fabrics. everything about this restaurant is an example of our love for diy and creating an environment that transports people.

what

we did

they arrived to find themselves amidst a bohemian safari

upon arriving at smokin pineapple from within the island, the guests are transported through a shaded walkway made of simple traditional elements, only to find a beach lounge so far removed from the ordinary life they’ve escaped, where everything is wild and everyone roams free… they have a choice: grab a seat in the lounge area, where they can leave their drinks on a luggage trunk coffee table; or keep it low-key and chill in the sand or by the pool, where they can lie on large sun beds with tribal print fabrics, or on floor cushions and foldable beach chairs.

they can momentarily hide away from the sun and share a meal underneath a tipi, or they can sit on a swing at the bar and grab a drink underneath a shaded deck. those in the mood for some serious chilling can head over to the hammock jungle, where hammocks are tied from coconut tree to coconut tree. the toilets and changing rooms are tucked away in little white washed cabins, the music is blaring and the pizza is piping hot straight from the oven!

what

we did

disc's design resonates in the clinic's brand essence to promote an environment for healing.

the vision for disc was to design the environment to evoke the feeling for healing the moment a patient walks in. the challenge was to abide by dhcc rules and regulations for materials and finishes without compromising the design aesthetic. the holistic effect was achieved with neutral color palettes providing a complementary backdrop to the soothing greenery and scenic black-and-white photographs of california’s iconic palm trees manifested on the walls. the precise approach of designing the doors of the treatment rooms included the selection of every piece by grade and juxtaposing each plank side by side to create a coherent and artistic gradient.

our sustainable approach to design is demonstrated in the usage of reclaimed wood – repurposed from previous usage which is transposed across the clinic. the treatment rooms feature white-washed texturized wood embedded on the walls and are stylishly accessorized with books and human anatomy sculptures

we did

the boho navajo: earthy – organic – raw – serene – flowy – free spirited

due to the prefab nature of the building and the challenge this posed for designing the retail area with limited to no wall/ceiling support, we came up with a completely customized design solution in the shape of a free standing structure.

the idea was for this wooden structure to fill the entire wall and painted white to blend in with the walls, giving somewhat of an illusion that there are branches hanging from the ceiling. shelving and hanging space are also integrated in the design of the structure, including a ladder. the floor of the structure is lined with white wooden planks to place bolsters and baskets with sale items right under the clothes.

what

we did

making patients and clients feel immediately at peace – a kind of bohemian serenity.

the fit out was tastefully curated by the owner, and we were brought in to work on styling and décor. minimalist in design, with a hint of boho and mid-century style, the wooden, white and tan leather furniture complement the interior construction of the wellness center, while green plants bring a sense of tranquility.

the reception area had a small facelift with a white washed wooden bench and a large potted fiddle fig tree. we upgraded the waiting area to include a large hemp rug, upholstered swivel armchairs and leather chairs, arranged around a wooden coffee table with a large clear vase with leaves. this concept also carries through into the locker rooms, which were styled with small clear vases with leaves from the garden. outside the locker rooms, near the waiting area, we gave the retail section a makeover by designating a wall for a custom-made display. the space under the stairs was transformed into a boho-fied loose seating arrangement with layered thin rugs and floor cushions, and a mini cactus flower garden with pebbles. upstairs, the waiting area was created on the landing, with a beni ourain rug, leather sofa and custom designed coffee table and leather and wood armchairs. the consultation rooms were furnished with custom designed desks and cabinets, and accessorized with simple objects, books and plants. even the corridor to the consultation rooms was softened with a mini pebbles and plant garden.

there’s something celestial about it.

with floor-to-ceiling windows and views of the majestic sea, the spa treatment rooms look like they’re sitting on the edge of a cliff right atop the water. inspired by our celestial boho theme we used silver and metallic décor elements, from vases to trays and bowls. other accessories include glass boxes, black vases and semi-precious stones and crystals. we custom made fitted sheets with boho fringe skirting for the treatment beds, and draped a large wall hanging with an inspirational quote by the famous writer, henry david thoreau. bundles of white pillar candles sit on the shelf ledge underneath, as well as on the edge of the bathtub. bamboo beams shoot across the ceiling, with a moroccan chandelier adding that cosmic touch.

what

we did

everything about this space screams relax and have fun!

the challenge in this space was that everything was made of birch wood, and we had to find a way to break the mundanity of that material. we responded by introducing shibori patterns and the color blue in different hues - the idea was to create a southern california beachy vibe. we introduced creased throws, shibori and jute cushions, and dip dye wall hangings in the bedrooms. we added eclectic knobs to all the cabinets and closet doors, and placed books and small vases on the bedside tables.

we gave the mini bar area a small facelift, by adding a shibori patterned wallpaper inside the niche and an organic tree branch to the side from which we hung baskets filled with snacks. in the living room area, we added fun cushions on the sofa (“here comes the sun”) and placed custom designed iron wrought cactus plants. we restyled the shelves and counter in front of the gold mashrabiyya by adding books, seashell sculptures, vases and custom framed prints.

what

we did

boho-fying the décor while maintaining the feeling of luxury.

the color and material palette included white, brass, black and marble. In the entrance area, we created a custom hanging brass bar to hold throws and a large basket for beach-goers. opposite that, we styled the entryway table with tribal baskets and custom framed prints that read “inhale” and “exhale” – for us, it’s all about setting the tone upon entering!

inside the room, we dressed up the bed with cushions and a large throw, and added accessories such as wooden bowls, candles and books on the side tables. the mini bar display was revamped with a diy application of marble vinyl on the inner edges of the counter and creating pockets to store snacks. coffee, tea and other drinks are displayed on large agate crystal slabs. the seating area was rearranged and restyled, with cushions, shelfie décor above the tv console, a signature white peacock chair, and large potted plants on custom steel stands. the coffee table was changed from glass to marble, and accessorized with a tray filled with books and trinkets.

near the terrace door and daybed, we added a floor basket with rolled up pool towels. outside, a large wooden bucket is provided with water and a ladle to get the sand off one’s feet before entering the room. the pool bed and cushions were reupholstered to suit the colors of the room.

what

we did

it's a mix of island bohemian and a little bit of luxury, with an airy lightness to it.

as the gateway to the island, we created an organic flow through the welcome center, immediately transporting guests to a stress free zone and putting them in vacation mode. that's what the all-white interior is exuding, with white washed walls and dramatic sheer white curtains randomly hanging across the space. the mudbrick bar and the reception act as anchors on each end, with art installations behind them: panama and sun hats make one installation, and a row of cacti in pots makes another. perpendicular to these, from the entrance to the outdoor deck, we created a tiled pathway with mykonos lamps clustered overhead. in between, we have beautiful mix-and-match seating arrangements, with mostly white elements and some wood/rattan interspersed throughout.

some areas are accessorized with oversized mirrors framed in vintage boat wood, creating a hint of drama and grounded-ness at the same time. black and white graphic printed cushions, as well as straw sun hats and hanging throws are stylishly strewn around the space. outdoors, we accounted for large organic wooden communal tables with benches to carry the vibe through, with white pottery on the edge of the tables. the idea is that - through carefully selected elements - we bring a little bit of every other piece of the island to the welcome center.

what

we did

through the design, the idea is to position the caff brand to stand out in a world of copy-paste industrial, minimalistic and scandinavian influenced coffee shops

dark, trendy colors fuse together the old colonial style with an exclusive gentleman/s club feel. upon entering, the customer sees the bar counter with a steel structure overhead, as though a historic building is being restored to its former glory. the space is dressed in blue-grey paint, plush brown fabric and brown leather mixed with beautiful blue and white floor tiles and a funky exotic wallpaper. on one side the walls are adorned in mirrors for depth and a large mercury mirror with the menu written on it. opposite to that, the wall is a cement wash graffittied with old dubai postage stamps and a quirky quote that can be treated as an “instagrammable” feature.

the light fittings are a mix of classical wall sconces, long arm bulbs and brass pendant lights. aged leather strap booths and stools, as well as the upholstered bench and rustic chairs, provide a variety of seating. visitors can capture their visit on camera by photographing the art wall, which has a quirky stamped quote. the feeling here is one of calm, serenity and relaxation, with the aroma of coffee in the air and the sophistication of the interiors evoking the romance of the coffee days of old.
