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…

  • So enjoying early walks and slow mornings with the kids - and ever conscious that there are so few mornings like this left before its back to school and work and busy routines. Savouring it all. We decided to go Dutch for brekkie this morning with some pancakes made from @woolworths_sa gluten free ready mix. They were delish!! Do yourself a favour and get some. Also, while you're spoiling yourself, find someone who looks at you like my kids look at pancakes.
  • So glad I went with dark lower cabinets in this kitchen. I realised this morning, as we were packing for a quick trip to Zuka, that I've posted barely any pics of #hawkesholidayhome since I've been here. Such a weirdo. Happy Saturday y'all! .

  • Impromptu sundowners this evening with @sweetsecrets.dubai and co. Beaut!
  • I arrived in South Africa with a laundry list of things I wanted to do / get done while I was here. Anyone want to attempt a guess on how many of those things I've actually accomplished? ... anyone?

  • This might just be the scene of an afternoon nap. Let's see...
  • So many beautiful and inspiring homes to see on my morning walk. I just love the pretty creeper on this wall. And I hope the owner doesn't find me super creepy for admiring it 🙈🤔😊
  • Quite possibly my favourite corner of #hawkesholidayhome
  • I can't believe we are already on the downward slide towards the end of summer. I've still got some time left in South Africa, but my head is back 'home' in Dubai as @liveloudgirl and I are in full planning mode for our next @fronteriors release. This is my favourite cabinet in the current collection - can you guess which IKEA frames are behind it? And do you have a favourite?

Ps: have a peek at the other looks for this frame on my stories
  • Treated myself to a little spa moment at @laura_channing_spa this morning. Still high-fiving myself for that smart decision. This little gem is a literal 3 minute walk from our front door and yet it always feels like I've escaped somewhere far away. The setting is so pretty and the service is amazing. It's an amazing perk to staying at #hawkesholidayhome
