Micro trend: Round mirrors

31/08/2015

Have you spotted the little upward trend of using round mirrors – particularly the suspended variety, and often with leather straps? Don’t you love it? I’m already scheming about where I can install one of these retro beauties…. and I’ve spotted something similar on sale at The Bowery Co. this week! Have a good one. Images 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 

Rolf Benz & Hulsta

28/08/2015

I only recently discovered that renowned German brands, Rolf Benz and Hulsta have a gorgeous showroom in Dubai. I was no doubt a little late to that party but better late than never, I guess. Anyways, as part of the same family-owned group that Hacker kitchens belongs to, the showroom is located in the same building, but on the level above the kitchen showroom. Between them, these brands specialise in almost every aspect of interiors – from sofas and wardrobes to…

Tribe Homeware

23/08/2015

Tribe is one of the latest homeware boutiques to hit Dubai and I can assure you that it is about to start making some serious waves in the local interiors scene. Founder, Jo England, has garnered an impressive selection of decor pieces perfectly suited to a style that is best – and rather aptly – defined as ‘tribal chic’. Needless to say, I am already a huge fan! Tribe’s carefully curated collection of home decor, furniture and accessories features lots of natural textures and ethnic…

  • 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!

  • Good morning from a bright &sunny Lisbon apartment. Last day here and we plan to make the most of it. And suggestions?
  • Our lunch spot in Lisbon @cafenochiado - came here in June and couldn't wait to get back. #lisbon #portugal #foodie #lunch #highlyrecommended
  • Tonight's sunset was on fire!
  • 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
  • We installed a nursery today for a very special return client and it went so well, which was a relief in this otherwise crazy week. I sometimes worry that my design studio is firmly rooted in the kids rooms category and find myself longing for more work on grown up spaces. But then after a day like today, I'm reminded of just how much I love creating kids rooms, and how touched I am by the parents response to the space for their precious little ones. And I realise that I'm actually so lucky to be able to do this for people. I also have to commend my dream team on the hard work and effort they put in to all of our projects - I've watched them all grow and blossom in their roles and am so proud of them all. Thank you @dutchcaribbeancharly @marli_smithphotography and @brittany_design_uae for all the passion you bring to HOH. I'm so grateful! X
  • So I've barely come up for air since yesterday's @fronteriors launch event - which was amazing, even better than we had hoped for. Thank you to everyone who came - we are continuously grateful for all the love and support from all our friends, clients and colleagues. 
We're also super excited to announce that we have a pop-up exhibit of our products at @nasabdubai until 12 Oct, so if you've been waiting to get a closer look at the colours, textures and new additions to our range, now is your chance! If you'd like to drop by, pls email info@fronteriors.co for timings and directions. Also, we have a discount offer for our online shop for this month only - let me know if you need that code 😉
