Christmas table styling | shop the look

09/12/2018

In a recent post, we created a set of printable stationery for your Christmas gifts and table settings and to photograph the items, we set up a festive tablescape in my dining room. We really enjoyed the process and loved the outcome, so we thought it would be nice to share some of images with ideas for decorating the table and dining room for your own Christmas entertaining. We wanted to give the dining room a festive ambiance…

Printable Christmas Stationery Set 2018

04/12/2018

Designing a set of free printable Christmas gift tags for you, our lovely readers and social media followers, has become somewhat of a tradition around here. With the exception of last year (and I’m not even sure what happened there), I have put out a set from the very beginning in 2013 through 2014, 2015 and 2016. It’s quite interesting to look back at the style evolution over the years. As any reliable advent calendar will tell you, Christmas is just…

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 1 The kitchen

10/09/2018

Remember that holiday apartment we bought in South Africa earlier this year? Well, it’s all renovated, furnished and ready for it’s big reveal. If you follow me on Instagram, you no doubt feel like you’ve had the full tour already. Perhaps you caught all the ‘behind the scenes’, ‘under the scenes’ and ‘knee deep in renovation scenes’ too? In case you missed all of that action, you can see a good chunk of it on my Instagram story…

GOOP x CB2

07/09/2018

Goop, the modern lifestyle empire founded by actress Gwyneth Paltrow, has ventured into furniture and décor for the first time, creating pieces reflecting the aesthetic of her own California home. The collaborator? CB2, the younger, more accessible and millennial-focused sister of Crate and Barrel. The newly released line includes around 60 pieces, ranging from mid-century velvet sofas to leather firewood totes and ceramic match strikers. The price range is, well, quite a range, reaching up to around AED 22k,…

Holiday Home Bathroom Planning

30/05/2018

The renovation work at project Holiday Home is in full swing and as with any renovation project, we have had a few hiccups along the way, but for the past week or two all focus has been on the bathrooms. When presented with a blank canvas, or more accurately, bathrooms that have been stripped to their shell and core, it’s surprisingly tricky to decide on what your ideal space actually looks like. Not to mention all the finishes…

We bought a coastal holiday home in South Africa

14/04/2018

If you’ve seen my latest Instagram post, you may already have seen the news that we bought a holiday home in South Africa! And whilst that makes for a great headline, it’s really a holiday flat/apartment that’s a few kilometers from the beach. But close enough to leverage coastal vibes. To be more precise, it’s located in a beautiful and secure coastal forest estate in Salt Rock, on the north coast of KZN – the area that I…

  • 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 🙈🤔😊
  • 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
