With the Gulf summer season in full swing we have been thinking of ways to occupy our forced hibernation over the next couple of months, and with all the gorgeous new finds just in at the Saffron Souk market, it’s the perfect time to go bold with decorating kids interiors!

We’re quite excited, because the great thing about decorating a child’s room is that you can take risks. It’s time to ditch the neutral colour palette and sprinkle a Saffron Souk magic. It’s the perfect excuse to forget about the rules of design, have some fun and do a little shopping, without (hopefully) breaking into a sweat!

A little girls room, inspired by finds from the Saffron Souk online market place…

Being stuck indoors 24 | 7 is not an ideal environment for kids, so it’s time to get inventive with your indoor space (for the sanity of all concerned!).
