After moving to Dubai, my mum and I spent lots of time finding new and interesting places to visit.  These usually included somewhere where they served a cup of coffee for my mum and a cute little shop for us to browse through.  It was during one of these excursions that we came across Little Luxuries….

If I said I was excited when I came across this photographer’s work, that would be an understatement.

I love this are attached to the kitchen.  One day I would love to be able to put a table and chairs in the kitchen.

For our second home tour, we headed off to a beautiful villa in the Green Community. We were lucky to capture the home before Jeanine and Mark began packing it up for their 15th move. Although the Holmes family have moved from one house to another, it is a priority to make each one feel…
