Perched discreetly to the side of The Courtyard’s back entrance is a single door and a narrow staircase. At the top, lies an expansive, warehouse style space, brimming with colors, textiles and objets d’art. Within the space are four individual brands which combined, are home to a truly one of its kind arts community, in the hub of Dubai’s creative district.
Color in the Street is a funky vibrant brand with a great collection of home accessories and gifts. Specialising in (wipe clean) table-cloths, with an amazing array of patterns, colors and designs, these cloths are a must-have for anyone with kids! Read more
Charlie is one of the friendliest dogs in the neighborhood! He loves people and children; however, his owner Tom was shocked and embarrassed when Charlie suddenly snapped at a friend who offered him a treat.
