Home Tour: Karen Pissarra from DESIGNK

11/01/2019

We haven’t done a home tour on the blog in quite some time, but this feature is coming back with a bang as our first peek inside a beautiful home is one that I am personally crazy about and have been dying to show you for ages. It belongs to fellow South African and Interiors colleague, Karen Pissarro of Design K. And it’s not the first time we’ve featured the living quarters of this talented creative on the…

Meadows Villa Makeover : The Living Room

19/03/2018

We’ve got another reveal for you this week as we continue our Meadows Villa Makeover Series. The next instalment is the the living room – an open plan area next to the kitchen of this family villa. If you haven’t seen the first feature on the TV lounge be sure not to miss that one. When we first saw this space in it’s previous state, my immediate thought was that it lacked a reflection of the warmth and…

Meadows Villa Makeover : The TV Lounge

14/03/2018

The days are long and the years are short, isn’t that the saying? How is it even possible that Easter is right around the corner – the days and months really do seem to be flying. With so many projects keeping us busy, we are terribly behind on a few room reveals for spaces completed last year – and with the end of the first quarter looming, we are determined to document these makeovers before the end of…

Apartment makeover with Natelee Cocks

29/10/2017

If the name Natelee Cocks seems familiar to you, it may be because you’ve seen it on my website and Instagram feed before. Quite often in fact. A fellow South African and widly talented photographer, Nat is a work colleague, who has become a dear friend – and my go-to girl for interior photography. Earlier this year Natelee and her hubby moved into a gorgeous duplex apartment in the Dubai Marina district and I was thrilled when she…

Home Tour: Petro Vivier from Monoshop

10/08/2017

It’s been a while since we had a home tour on the blog and this one comes all the way from the Western Cape in South Africa. A beautiful minimalistic home in the heart of Somerset West. The home owner is the lovely Petro from Monoshop, who’s no stranger to us. We’ve talked about her shop before and I’ve done a guest post for her blog too. Needless to say Monoshop is one of my favourite online home boutiques from ‘back home’. Amongst…

Styling with White Moss

09/02/2017

When Leanne Moss of the gorgeous online home store, White Moss, recently asked me if I could help her with styling her home, I jumped at the chance. It’s no surprise that I am a big White Moss fan – their natural materials and neutral colour pallet are right up my style alley – and Leanne is just lovely too. Leanne has recently made some changes at their home and I was eager to jump in and help with…

Home office makeover

07/06/2016

Over the past two weeks, I have shared mood boards on how to shop the IKEA Part Sale for your living room and bedroom. After sharing these tips with you all, I figured it was about time I put the sale to good use for myself. My home office has been in need of a change for some time and IKEA’s Part Sale presented a great opportunity to tick this one off the list. Whilst I loved the previous layout…

Home Tour: Downtown Dubai

13/01/2016

It’s been a while since I’ve had a home tour on the blog so when I saw a friend’s gorgeous Downtown Dubai apartment, I had to show you guys too. Welcome to the beautiful home of Karen Wandrag, fellow South African and founder of DESIGN K. I recently had the pleasure of working with Karen on a design project, but more on that in due course. For now, let’s focus on this beautiful space. A qualified engineer and talented artist, Karen has…

  • Did I mention I got a new floor? 🤪😂 #laminateflooring #waterresistant #wholenewworld #livingroom #flooring #homeinspo #houseofhawkeshq #finally #mydomaine #myhome #myhomevibe #dubaiinteriors
  • Yesterday I assisted at a @fronteriors installation at the beautiful home of @shoestova - she opted for our brand new slatted doors in grey with matte black handles and the combination is ace! We love seeing customers play with the options to achieve their individual vision.

  • There's nothing quite like that first night back in your own bed. #home
  • I can't quite explain how happy I was to open the front door and see our new flooring all finished when I got home this morning. Home sweet home just got sweeter. When I left last week, @floorworldllc were still working on the installation and they've done such a great job on the finishing touches. Feeling all the good feel this Monday morning. Now to attend to that to do list!

  • I'm on a quick trip to Portugal which turned into a very spontaneous girls catch-up when my cousin from Dubai joined me and a friend of ours flew in from England to meet us. We found such a cool little villa on @airbnb that overlooks the rice fields in Carvarhal, Portugal.  Enjoying the end-of-summer beautiful weather. Happy Friday! X
