Ikea 2018 Catalogue

28/08/2017

We’ve just got back to Dubai from a few weeks in South Africa and it feels like Christmas has come early with the launch of IKEA’S 2018 catalogue. This year’s theme, ‘make room for life’ encourages you to make room for the things you love, no matter the size of your home or your wallet. Having lived in our current home for exactly one year now, and still seeing too many blank walls and spaces around me (quite simply because…

Shop the Look | Safari Circus Nursery

22/05/2017

In my previous post, a full reveal of the Safari Circus nursery we designed and installed for Zahirah Marty, I promised to give you guys a more detailed break-down of the sourcing for this sweet nursery. Dubai entrepreneur, new blogger (at Meet Mrs Marty) and blossoming mum-to-be, Zahirah, has generously agreed to let me share all the details of her new nursery. So if you like what you saw in her baby’s new room, you’re in for a treat. Tribe Dubai…

Colour Crush: Blush and Green

10/04/2017

There is a new colour crush on the my horizon. Beautiful Blush and Green. And whilst there’s really nothing new about this magical partnership, it is all over my radar and Pinterest pages. The rosy, pinkish tint is somewhat of trending colour for the season. Maison & Objet, an interior design trade fair held in Paris, is the benchmark for interior style each year. The January 2017 show favoured blush in their colour palette, and you’re seeing it everywhere in both commercial and residential spaces….

Christmas Gift guide for Kids

11/12/2016

My lovelies, it’s here! After many hours of searching, sourcing and corresponding with some of our favourite retailers, we have our 2016 gift guides ready for you. First up – the smalls. Putting together the Christmas gift guide for the kiddos was so much fun. We have selected a wide range of adorable things including wooden toys and funky clothing and of course some decor items as well. Limiting this guide to only 12 gifts was a real challenge for us. Twelve days…

Ooh Yes for Ooh Noo

03/12/2016

A few weeks ago, I ordered some gorgeous bed linen for Ethan’s room and wanted to let you in on this awesome find! This room is a space in our new home which you probably haven’t seen much of yet. That’s because I’ve had a real decorating block with it. Yes, that happens. I don’t know why, but this room in particular has been a real struggle for me. The space is a lot smaller than his last bedroom, so…

Making room for guests

28/11/2016

It’s that time of year again, folks – the festive season. I can’t even believe that December is in our sights, let alone Christmas. For most expats living in the UAE, this is ‘visitor season’ and most of us are preparing our homes for the annual onslaught of house guests. With perfect weather and a city that continues amaze the world, who can blame family and friends for wanting to get a piece of the action. My smalls have been counting…

  • 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 ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜Š
  • 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
