Consider this the ultimate cheat sheet to knocking out your gift shopping for the year, so, credit card at the ready, let’s get stuck in… 1 / 2 / 3 /…

Scene & Heard | Summer holiday

04/11/2019

The summer holidays feel somewhat like a lifetime ago – what, with signs of Christmas already in stores and a hint of winter weather starting to make its way to Dubai – but we realised recently the the team hadn’t yet shared our ‘scene & heard’ snippets from our various summer adventures across South Africa & Europe. Well, you might have followed along for Kath’s South African adventures via Instagram or the post she published about her stay…

La Cotte Farm, Franschhoek, SOUTH AFRICA

One of the highlights of our summer break (which is indeed a winter break when you’re in South Africa) was a trip to the beautiful Cape region with friends who were visiting from London. I absolutely love everything about the Cape – from the picturesque landscapes to the beautiful wine farms and dramatic ocean views, it gives me all the holiday feels. And I don’t mind whether it’s summer or winter because it’s beautiful in all seasons. Since…

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…

Valentine’s inspired Rosemary & Blackberry Pink Drink

10/02/2019

Just like that, January is behind us and we are hurtling towards Valentine’s day – a bitter sweet one for me this year as my ‘baby boy’ turns ten!  With the romantic holiday literally a few days away, our clever Marli, who does a lot of the behind the scenes work here on the blog, came up with the brilliant idea to share a cocktail recipe that may just be the ideal bevvy to celebrate this fun ‘holiday’….

  • Snuggle down Dubai peeps, the chill is real! More so for some of us than others. Clearly. 🐶 ❄ 🥶
  • And so to bed... because I need an early(ish) night and I'll take any excuse to get under my duvet in this unusual Dubai chill. A scene from #hawkesholidayhome in Salt Rock, South Africa where I hear they're having quite the opposite weather conditions.
  • Sometimes even Dubai gets moody

  • When you're alone at the office and they all think you're working.... meanwhile you're chillin' like a villain. #guilty #office #studiof #nordichomeworx #canewebbing
  • Surpise delivery of flowers in our new office from our friends at @innerspaceme - so thoughtful and brightening things up considerably! Also, did you spot our @fronteriors cane doors for PAX wardrobes making a fabulous statement in the background there?

  • If you saw my stories about my visit to @chattelsandmore and was wondering what I came home with... that @kareuae gold number is looking shiny and new in it's new home!
  • Its that time of year when we're looking around at what's hot and what's not. And in the spirit of January, fresh starts and changes on the horizon, we've rounded up our take on trends for 2020 on houseofhawkes.com | sherpa upholstery is definitely on there!

  • Lazy messy bed kind of a day...

  • I spent a large chunk of my day at Dubai Design District and I have to say I love the vibe down there. It's really developed into something quite awesome. After a meeting, @liveloudgirl and I had lunch at @thelighthouse_ae - I hadn't been before and I loved it. Its so nice to be able to sit outside and enjoy the fabulous weather, not to mention the food! And what a bonus to discover their little retail collection inside.
