Lots happening at the moment Chez Caramel & Sun, the gorgeous little concept store at Mercato Mall on the Jumeirah Beach Road!
Have you visited yet? Run by two super fun French mums, Olivia and Magali, and also conceptualised by them jointly with dad-to-be Paul, it is crammed with the latest and trendiest children's room decor and accessories, brought straight from Europe and Australia - all hand-picked and lots of fun. It opened last September and by now they just seem to be the talk of town!
I love their reasoning behind the name: 'Caramel because it is as sweet as childhood, Sun because we live right under it…and what’s prettier than this golden morning sun shining gently through the curtains of the children’s room?'
Click through the gallery to see some of their quirky, high end pieces like the retro Roulotte bed from Laurette, the cabinets from This is Dutch, the animal wall head pieces from Wild & Soft, the teepees and cushions from Nobodinoz, the non-toxic stackable Playon Crayons, the gorgeous cloud lights from Fromage La Rue and more night lights and light boxes from A Little Lovely Company, that I am just obsessed with, among dozens of others that Caramel & Sun feature.
Their stock is limited so if you do like something, grab it before it's gone. But if you miss out on it, it will surely be replaced with something equally gorgeous and fun.
- Omy colouring placemats and Omy colouring wall atlas - with the indoor brunching season in full swing in Dubai and the Gulf now, colouring placemats just seem to be the perfect answer for dining out with the kids, and the atlas is an absolute must for the kids' playroom!
- La Tête Dans le Bocal lamps - as cool as lamps get!
- Barnabé Aime le Café musical cushions in Liberty's fabric - as the French say: 'J'adore!'
IN MY DIARY ALREADY:
- Caramel & Sun are hosting the Summer Kids Pop-Up Event at their offices on 2 June at their offices in the LPG warehouse in Al Quoz 3, the trendy and artistic hub of Dubai at the moment. Some of my favourite mummy and kids brands like Keenbags, Twins, Little Farasha, POMME, Dumye Dolls, and Mitera Collection will all there from 10am to 5pm. A real treat not to be missed!
You will also be able to find them until the end of the season at my beloved Marina Souq, at the Fishing Harbour in Umm Suqeim 2, and every Saturday during the summer at the Ripe market in Times Square.
