The Opening of the Noon Boutique Hotel Apartments- art, interiors and canapes

Even if I haven’t practiced anything related to architecture for more than 2 years now, my love for anything related to it has never diminished. When I got the invite for the opening of the first ever boutique hotel in Dubai, the little architect in me started making cartwheels. It was an opportunity for me to be surrounded by the stuff I love- art and beautiful interiors. Something that I have been subconsciously craving. My fellow blogger who is also an architect, Kenneth of, also got the invite so we both decided to go together (you can see his blog about the event here).

Noon boutique hotel boasts of being the first of its kind in the region. Three Arabic artists contributed to the concepts of the interiors each one bringing an element of their personal style. Although their designs were confined to only a few things in each room, the details are pretty much evident with what little they were allowed to work with. The hotel also boasts of a gallery on the mezzanine floor, which already houses a few paintings by the artists.

I love this wallpaper. I would use it on an accent wall in my own house.

Even the embroidery in the drapes showed the concept of the artists for the rooms they designed.

What I really appreciated that night were the artists working live in the lobby. It’s always inspiring to be around artistic people doing their craft.

We ended the evening with socializing at the gallery. There was a band that provided Arabic music for entertainment. And ofcourse, we munched on the overflowing trays of canapes.

This is the perfect place for artists and creatives to stay when visiting Dubai. The interiors and the gallery will surely provide you with inspiration to keep those creative juices flowing.
