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….

Baby Mila’s nursery

21/09/2018

I am so excited to be sharing the result of our House of Hawkes team effort to help our colleague and friend, Marli, prepare of the arrival of her baby girl – Mila. Charly and I were just about as excited for baby’s arrival as the gorgeous mum-to-be was and we are happy to report that the little cherub has since arrived safely and is as cute as a button! We pulled together a gorgeous,budget-friendlyy nursery that doubles as…

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…

South African Interior Scene : Kipekee Studio

09/09/2018

If you’re a House of Hawkes regular, you’re probably aware of my recent trips to South Africa and my efforts in renovating and furnishing the #HawkesHolidayHome. Having lived outside of South Africa for more than 13 years now, I was somewhat daunted by the prospect of decor sourcing back home, but I delved deep and loved every moment of the mission that lead to the discovery of many interesting and new (to me) brands and makers. I was…

Urban Nest styled shoot

03/12/2017

I think we all know how much I love discovering a new interior store. And we are truly becoming spoilt for choice here in Dubai. Before the summer Urban Nest had caught my eye on Instagram but the new online retailer wasn’t yet up & running. So, I had to be patient but I kept them on my radar. And I wasn’t the only one, the new concept gained a lot of interest in the run-up to their…

IKEA Stockholm 2017 collection

24/03/2017

Ikea is about to launch the 2017 Stockholm collection and believe me when I say you want to see this. There are over 40 new items in the recurrent Stockholm series, including sofas, coffee tables, vases, pillows, rugs and lamps, but there are a few pieces in particular that have caught my eye. Let’s start with this rattan cabinet designed by Nike Karlsson, shall we? Is it just me, or is this also one of the hottest pieces you’ve ever seen…

White Moss Decor

25/11/2016

This post comes with a warning. It may be harmful to your wallet because when you see what I am about to show you, you’re going to want all the beautiful things. A few months ago, a friend told me about this exciting new concept called White Moss and I’ve been following their Instagram feed with anticipation ever since. What is White Moss, you ask? Well, its a brand new online home decor store and it’s all kinds of aaaaaah-mazing!…
