These décor buys will instantly spruce up your living space
As the new seasons come and go, it isn’t just our wardrobe that requires updating, we’re also rebooting our living spaces with a few fresh finds and décor tricks.
The below interior buys are all available from either Mall of the Emirates, City Centre Mirdif or other City Centres across the Middle East.
The Hold-It-All Tray
Glass tray, Zara Home, visit Mall of the Emirates, City Centre Deira, City Centre Bahrain and City Centre Muscat
First port of call? Your coffee table. The easiest and perhaps most noticeable way to transform your living room is by updating your central table.
Bear in mind that this furniture piece usually sits in-between a sofa and television, so chances are you will use it a lot.
Less is often more, so rid the table of clutter and old magazines, replacing with a curated selection of books (pick tomes which best represent your tastes, be it fashion, cars or food for example) and use sleek trays to store and display stylish nik naks such as large scented candles, bowls and ornaments.
For extra impact, colour-coordinate your items. Start with a monochrome palette and add two colour tones such as grey and blue. This chic piece by Zara Home will instantly streamline the look, making everything appear neater and more cohesive.
The Velvet Pillow

Through different textures, prints and colours, pillows are a quick way to jazz up any room with minimal effort. This season, the trend-conscious can look to a variety of different themes to work with sofas, chairs and beds depending on your overall style.
Our standout interior trend of the season for the coming months is cosy velvet accents. Look out for plush cushions in deep, rich shades of emerald green, ruby red and dark ink blue paired with neutral classics such as white, cream or beige.
The Illuminating Lantern
Glass Lantern, Zara Home, visit Mall of the Emirates, City Centre Deira, City Centre Bahrain and City Centre Muscat
Lanterns jar candles and candelabras add instant warmth and style to a room. Whether you want to give off a rustic vibe with wicker and distressed wood or opt for a more glamorous feel by introducing elements of glass and metal, these interior accents can be dotted around your home or placed on a dining table in the garden for al fresco family meals.
