Crate & Barrel Spring/Summer 2019 collection

09/04/2019

I was thrilled to be invited by home furnishing giant, Crate & Barrel to host a masterclass at their Mall of the Emirates store this morning. The topic was styling your living and dining rooms with their new Spring/Summer 2019 collection – a colourful affair. I thoroughly enjoyed sharing some of my top tips and tricks with the folks who came to the event, and getting to chat with everyone afterwards. Crate & Barrel’s new collection for Spring/Summer…

H&M Home launches new concept stores

28/01/2019

I’ve been watching (on Instagram) with great envy as H&M Home have been opening their new standalone concept stores across Europe since September of last year, with the latest one set to open its doors in Regent Street, London in the Spring. These new concept stores, already operational in Denmark, Sweden, Norway Germany and the UK, are so exciting because they expand the existing homewares range to include furniture and lighting, essentially making them a fully-fledged home store. From…

Favourite Finds: Dubai Shopping Festival

14/01/2019

For those of you who are based in Dubai, you no doubt know that the Dubai Shopping Festival is in full swing. The incredible six week annual sale event features some 700+ brands participating across 3,200 outlets and lasts until 2 February.  One of the highlights of DSF is the the Market Outside The Box (OTB), a cool outdoor pop-up that plays host to some of Dubai’s smaller, home-grown concept stores. I think it’s in its sixth year already…

South African Interior Scene : Victoria Verbaan

19/12/2018

I’m sure it comes as no surprise that I’m somewhat obsessed with the work of Durban-based artist and designer, Victoria Verbaan. Since I was introduced to her work by a fellow South African client earlier this year, I have incorporated it in many designs for clients as well as my own home. I used some of my favourites in the master bedroom and bathroom at our new holiday home in South Africa and she’s released many more gorgeous pieces…

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…

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….

Our Holiday Home Reveal : Part 2 The living areas

19/09/2018

If you asked me what the best thing is about this apartment, it is without a doubt the two generous living spaces. One of the reasons we loved this property when we first saw pictures of it was it’s large outside patio area and the fact that the previous owners had installed custom sliding doors to enclose the space. Enclosing this area has pretty much doubled the living space of the apartment, allowing for a second lounge and…

  • 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 πŸ™ˆπŸ€”πŸ˜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
