Our Holiday Home Reveal Part 3 : Master bedroom and bathrooms

29/09/2018

Work has been so ridiculously busy the past two weeks that I haven’t been on the blog much. We are working on some great new projects which I look forward to sharing on here in the coming weeks but for now, I’m conscious that I still owe you guys more room reveals from our new holiday home. So whilst the family are chilling in the pool this weekend morning, I’ve started to type this post on my iPad…

Our Holiday Home Reveal : Part 2 The living areas

19/09/2018

If you asked me what the best thing is about this apartment, it is without a doubt the two generous living spaces. One of the reasons we loved this property when we first saw pictures of it was it’s large outside patio area and the fact that the previous owners had installed custom sliding doors to enclose the space. Enclosing this area has pretty much doubled the living space of the apartment, allowing for a second lounge and…

Our Holiday Home reveal : Part 1 The kitchen

10/09/2018

Remember that holiday apartment we bought in South Africa earlier this year? Well, it’s all renovated, furnished and ready for it’s big reveal. If you follow me on Instagram, you no doubt feel like you’ve had the full tour already. Perhaps you caught all the ‘behind the scenes’, ‘under the scenes’ and ‘knee deep in renovation scenes’ too? In case you missed all of that action, you can see a good chunk of it on my Instagram story…

Holiday Home Bathroom Planning

30/05/2018

The renovation work at project Holiday Home is in full swing and as with any renovation project, we have had a few hiccups along the way, but for the past week or two all focus has been on the bathrooms. When presented with a blank canvas, or more accurately, bathrooms that have been stripped to their shell and core, it’s surprisingly tricky to decide on what your ideal space actually looks like. Not to mention all the finishes…

Holiday Home kitchen planning

15/05/2018

As you may know, I was back home in South Africa last week. The (rather ambitious) mission of my 5 day trip was to source and specify all the finishes for the #HawkesHolidayHome renovation project with our contractor, Jarrod, from Gator Projects (whose patience with me warrants a separate blog post). Given that helping people decorate and improve their homes is what I do, you’d think that this would be a walk in the park for me. At least, that’s…

We bought a coastal holiday home in South Africa

14/04/2018

If you’ve seen my latest Instagram post, you may already have seen the news that we bought a holiday home in South Africa! And whilst that makes for a great headline, it’s really a holiday flat/apartment that’s a few kilometers from the beach. But close enough to leverage coastal vibes. To be more precise, it’s located in a beautiful and secure coastal forest estate in Salt Rock, on the north coast of KZN – the area that I…
