This two-bed­room apart­ment, lo­cated on the sixth floor in the heart of Burj Da­man, is a per­fect home for the host due to it’s lo­ca­tion, ar­chi­tec­ture, con­ve­nience and luxury value. The house is de­signed keep­ing in mind time­less taste and el­e­gance. It is a unique and re­fined take on metropoli­tan liv­ing, with the de­sign ex­ces­sively ap­peal­ing with all the trap­pings of a mod­ern day en­vi­ron­ment.

Both the liv­ing and the din­ing spa­ces are con­nected and have an open­ing to the kitchen. The so­phis­ti­cated ur­ban liv­ing area has a warm and neu­tral palette ac­cented by green and cop­per.

bal­ance be­tween wood and metal and the cus­tomised chan­de­lier adds a play­ful note. The bronze mir­ror adds depth to the space, and all the walls have a layer of Vescom wall cov­er­ing. The art­work that you wit­ness in the home was com­mis­sioned to an artist - Sara Men­des de Almeida, and it cre­ates the per­fect per­spec­tive as you walk within the precincts of the space.

The bal­cony is an in­stru­men­tal space priv­i­leged with a fan­tas­tic view. The de­sign­ers cre­ated pock­ets of ar­eas with a dif­fer­ent char­ac­ter for out­door din­ing and liv­ing so that the own­ers can make the most of the good weather months in Dubai. The tiles are of a lighter colour, and the fur­ni­ture is durable, yet stylish. Kartell Master chairs by Philippe Starck, the cus­tomised ta­ble with con­crete top ef­fect and the wicker loung­ing chairs add to the al­lur­ing charm.

The guest bed­room lives up to its name, with one head­board con­nect­ing both the beds. The Flos floor lights on each side of the beds are func­tional and aes­thetic; and the swal­lows placed on the head­board

wall add a sculp­tural fea­ture to it. The colour scheme is joy­ful with a per­fect bal­ance of blues, white and yel­low, giv­ing the room a fresh and vi­brant am­biance. The fab­rics are from De­signer’s Guild, and the rug has a graphic pat­tern adding har­mony to the com­po­si­tion.

The master bed­room is the ul­ti­mate - the gen­er­ous pro­por­tion al­lowed the de­sign­ers to have an in­ter­est­ing flow and cre­ate a seat­ing area with two chaise lounges up­hol­stered in Dedar fab­rics. Casamance wall­cov­er­ings add soft­ness, and the cur­tains are airy and fresh to op­ti­mise the day light. The seven me­ters wide rug is botan­i­cal silk, and the fab­rics are tex­tured with an in­ter­est­ing com­bi­na­tion of pat­terns and colours. Fi­nally, as the lo­ca­tion and the view are un­beat­able, with walk­ing dis­tance to the best ho­tels, restau­rants and re­tail out­lets in the city; along with prox­im­ity to Sheikh Zayed Road and the iconic Burj Khal­ifa and Dubai Mall be­ing just min­utes away - this pri­vate home is noth­ing short of a land­mark supreme ad­dress.
