Pink bliss ombre nursery

23/04/2019

A few months ago an expectant mum-to-be reached out to us to help design a nursery for her little one. After a few sneak peeks on my Instagram on the day of the installation, we had many requests for the reveal post. So here it is – better late than never. The design brief for this room was to create a space that was both elegant and a little more ‘grown up’ than your average nursery, whilst maintaining…

THE BOWERY COMPANY | GIVEAWAY

15/11/2018

One of my favourite aspects of our business is discovering exciting new brands and concepts to share with our clients and all of you.  One such company that we stumbled upon earlier this year at the Maison et Objet show in Paris was the Spanish label, Lorena Canals. We instantly fell in love with their collection of rugs that are as stylish as they are practical. These beauties are machine washable. At home. In your very own washing machine….

Wallpaper Wonder Nursery Reveal

12/11/2018

Last month we had the privilege of designing a nursery for the sweetest mum-to-be. Her vision was simple – nothing too over the top, a dash of dusty pink and something special for the walls. Other than that, she pretty much left it up to us. We had seen a few sneak peeks of the wallpaper collaboration project between Jimmy Cricket and well-renowned Swedish art duo, Mrs Mighetto on Instagram and were eager to have one particularly special paper…

Kaitlyn’s new desk mini makeover & GIVEAWAY

09/07/2018

This mini-makeover in my daughter’s room is a classic tale of ‘mom-guilt’. We all know it and I am sure many can relate. Kaitlyn has been patiently asking me for a desk in her room since before Christmas and I have repeatedly promised her that I will get around to it ‘soon’. And to be fair, I had every intention to do this for her as soon as I found the proverbial ‘gap’. But the year got super…

Bold Botanical toddler room

07/07/2018

We had so much fun decorating this room for the sweetest toddler. Her mum has incredible style and had already purchased almost all of the items in the room so she called on us to help her style it in their beautiful new home. We usually shy away from projects that require styling only as it’s difficult to put your stamp on a space when you have to work only with what already exists, but in this case…

West Elm x Pottery Barn Kids collaboration

07/06/2018

Have you heard the news of West Elm’s collaboration with Pottery barn Kids? The sister brands, owned by Williams Sonoma, have joined forces to create a baby & kids line of products, including furniture, bedding, wallpaper, décor and storage – seamlessly merging West Elm’s signature aesthetic with Pottery Barn Kids’ years of experience in the baby & child arena. We are big fans of West Elm at House of Hawkes and personally, I’ve always been quite disappointed at…

Floral Delight Makeover

05/06/2018

Following on from our recent post about the Boys Adventure Bedroom, we are excited to share the next makeover with you – a shared girls room. The floral wallpaper had us smitten from the moment we saw it and we knew there was no turning back. There is definite shift in my design style as the team and I are venturing towards some adventurous wallpapers and and bolder prints – and in a space like this, you can…

  • Mariam from @interiorflavor reached out to me and asked if I'd like to participate in her #monthofinspiration campain and offer a tip to everyone. Mine is a really simple one that has to do with something I'm asked all the time... how do I have white furniture with kids and a pet? The answer is really simple - removable covers, peeps. My white sofa has them and they're washed every few months. It's the very reason why I partnered with @helmiibeds to design a bed frame that has removable, washable covers! No fuss, no stress. #toptip #removablebedcover #removablesofacovers #loosecovers
  • Progress report in Ethan's room... I wasn't feeling the one third ratio of the colour block against the bed, so raised the line to two thirds and I'm so glad I did. Try to ignore the pile of mess just visible on the bed and marvel at the wonder of that colour. It's called Northern Mystic but I'd totally have named it forest green. Either way, I'm loving it!

  • We've got a full house this weekend with my niece and nephew here and all 4 kids are coughing and congested 😔 poor things.  We've had to pass on our usual Saturday activities with @pirates.surf in favour of a couch day. I caught little miss camera shy, aka Ava-licious, chilling hard with Peter Rabbit 🐰

  • New to the portfolio: a piano room. Take a tour of this moody and discerning space on houseofhawkes.com. image by @marli_smithphotography #houseofhawkes #pianoroom #yamahapiano #wallpaper #pianoman
  • I've put in an order for a new slip cover for my #helmiiXhouseofhawkes bed. It's for my guestroom makeover and I've opted for the off-white. I should have it by next week and I'll be sure to show you how quick and easy the change is! #bedslipcover guestroom #makeover #easypeasy
  • When @style____k (bless her for her patience) was trying to get a shot of us at the @fronteriors product shoot, but we were knee deep in hardware discussions. Again. 
Also, could you die for the plywood fronts and top for BESTA? And the cane doors for BILLY!!?? 😁😜🤭

  • Today was a biggie for @liveloudgirl and I. That little idea about making custom fronts, tops and accessories for IKEA frames became a big reality as we embarked on our inaugural shoot for the @fronteriors website with the first few items fresh off the production line. The full collection isn't yet ready but we've decided that rather than waiting for everything to be finsihed before we go live, we're going to make items available to purchase as and when they are ready. A decision based largely on our excitement induced impatience, but also because of the 'are we there yet' questions we are fielding on a daily basis. And we get it. At this point, theres already a great selection of options coming online, including the hotly anticipated cane doors for the BILLY bookcase. We're so excited to bring this concept to the local market! Keep on eye out for the announcement of our website going live! 
Big thanks to everyone who assisted us in pulling today together: @nordichomeworx for the dreamy flooring, @8thstreetstudios for the studio space, @style____k for getting me out of my ripped jeans, @marli_smithphotography for being behind the lens, @jleeksma for video  magic, @jotunpaintsarabia for always having our back... and our walls! @thebowerycompany for accessories, @valentina.p.design for amazing organisation 
#ittakesavillage #almostthere #fronteriors
  • Over at @fronteriors some of our first units are almost off the production line and we're prepping to shoot images for the website every soon. Epic excitement here as It's. All. Happening! Eeek. I'm so thrilled to be embarking on this big adventure with such a fabulous partner in design endeavours - @liveloudgirl ... afterall, someone's gotta look good around here! #funtimes #fronts #frontsquad #fronteriors #herewego
  • All eyes on Kate 👀 because some icons never go out of style.
