Entry Description

The Boulter family residence located in Emirate Hills, Dubai spans 30,000 square feet with beautiful 360-degree views. The project was a combination of interior design and architecture that was completed in April 2011. It doesn't fit into one style; Melissa met with the family to discover their roots ultimately creating a design that they could call their own. With family heritage in South Africa and Hong Kong and travels regularly to Asia, the UK and the US, GDG incorporated the family's favorite tradition. Each guest room is themes with different national heritage. The various talking pieces that set off each room like that of the African art is the guest bedroom or the Union Jack mosaic in the bathroom creates a story that triggers memories of their past travels.
