Dubai’s ‘big summer break’ is hurtling towards us like a freight train with a mere five weeks left before school’s out and the mass exodus begins. It’s seems such a unique lifestyle quirk the way so many families collectively leave town over the same period to travel to their home countries or other exotic destinations during July and August, essentially to escape two of the warmest months of the year here in the UAE. I know that we…

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…

our living room – a work in progress

29/12/2018

Hello lovelies! I hope you have all had a fabulously festive Christmas. I’ve have been taking some time off from work and the blog and have really been enjoying the down time with no deadlines. I’ve been spring-cleaning the house and getting myself ready to face the new year with a clean(ish) slate. That said, there is one post that is long overdue and that I wanted to publish on here before the year is through. We shot…

Christmas table styling | shop the look

09/12/2018

In a recent post, we created a set of printable stationery for your Christmas gifts and table settings and to photograph the items, we set up a festive tablescape in my dining room. We really enjoyed the process and loved the outcome, so we thought it would be nice to share some of images with ideas for decorating the table and dining room for your own Christmas entertaining. We wanted to give the dining room a festive ambiance…

EARTHBOUND ROUNDUP: PRODUCTS WE LOVE

22/11/2018

I think we all know that team House of Hawkes is not backing down from our love of neutrals any time soon. Personally, I’ve pretty much always been based in camp neutral. I have moments of bravery that allow me to make some bold colour moves every now and then, and frankly with no regrets so far, but I’ll always feel most at home surrounded by pared back tones and earthy textures. After a very busy few weeks…

IKEA favourite finds

12/04/2018

If you know me at all, then you probably know of my big love for Ikea. I love to mix affordable basics with investment pieces and the two don’t usually come from the same store. That said, IKEA is collaborating with some big name designers these days and on some levels, they’re threatening to occupying both camps! This week, while running around like a headless chicken for some installations (which you will be reading more about in the…

Fab finds at H&M Home

03/03/2018

While on a quick sourcing trip earlier this week we decided to pop into H&M Home and as always they didn’t disappoint. The new stock in-store is all kinds of gorgeous and we thought we would share some of the beauties we came across with you. Whilst I sure the hubster will disagree, I am great believer in the fact that there is no such thing as “too many cushions”. But why this obsession? Simply put, cushions are the…

  • 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
