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…

Fronteriors is open for business

26/05/2019

Last month I shared the exciting news about Fronteriors with you all. Remember that new business venture I am embarking on with my dear friend and fellow crazy, er, I mean stylist, Linda Dekkers (aka LiveLoudGirl)? Taking our collaborative creativity to the next level is proving to be rather a lot of work, particularly on top of the usual House of Hawkes project load, but thankfully neither of us are the type to back down from a personal…

Console Styling with The Bowery Company

25/05/2019

Something we’re asked all too often by clients is “how do I style a sideboard?” It’s actually a great question, and as stylists we sometimes forget that it doesn’t come naturally to everyone – yet it so important to have these surface spaces looking ‘pulled together’ in you home. With this in mind, we thought it might be helpful to share some console or sideboard styling ideas as a regular feature. So you can look forward to a…

25/04/2019

Using greenery to spruce up a room is like adding accessories to an outfit, without them you look fine, but throw on some clever additions and you look fabulous. In a world dominated by concrete and glass, indoor plants and fresh flowers offer a welcome change and giving your home a natural green tinge definitely has plenty of perks.

  • 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.

  • 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!

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
