Baby BOY nursery bliss

01/12/2019

If you’ve been keeping a close eye on my Insta lately you might have seen some sneak peeks of a blissful boy nursery we just finished up. Our client was expecting her third little man, so this wasn’t mama’s first rodeo and the ‘bones’ of the nursery were already in place with some key pieces she already had – a crib and feeding chair that had been used in the nurseries of her two older boys. For both…

A Gender Neutral Room for Little Siblings

11/11/2019

Designing a shared gender neutral room can be daunting, but we never shy away from a challenge. So, when a mum of two reached out to us to assist with creating a space for her brood we accepted without hesitation. We had an generous blank canvas with a beautiful wooden floor to work from and the brief was fairly simple: double the kids meant double the volume of stuff, so enough storage for all their paraphernalia was a…

Britt’s BUDGET-FRIENDLY NURSERY

01/11/2019

A much anticipated new arrival to the House of Hawkes brood has us all hyped-up. We are on baby-watch as we speak – waiting, waiting to hear of the new little guy’s arrival. But unlike Mila’s nursery last year, which we literally threw together at the 11th hour – with awesome results I might add – we were a little more organised this time around in helping our dear colleague Britt get ready for baby’s arrival. It certainly…

Over the rainbow Nursery reveal

24/10/2019

We met this lovely mama last year when she approached us to help with the design and installation of a shared boys and a shared girls room. Although she gravitated towards the colour palette we used for Mila’s nursery, her brief was really sweet in the sense that there wasn’t much of a brief, but rather an acknowledgement of the fact that she completely trusted us to run wild with our our creativity in the design – and…

Apartment Living | The piano Room

16/05/2019

Some projects tend to lead to other projects, as was the case with this client. After the living room makeover in this same apartment, we were asked to assist with something quite unique and certainly new to our portfolio – a piano room. The space was already partially decorated when we stepped in to help – and since this particular client has a great eye for design and detail, he had accumulated a few key pieces that were…

Contemporary Apartment living

06/05/2019

We’ve recently completed some work for a stylish bachelor in his contemporary new apartment. To be honest when we first saw the home, we weren’t entirely sure why he had contacted us. Let’s just say we’ve been called in for spaces needing a lot more ‘help’ than this one. This client has excellent taste but was struggling with narrowing down his choices and sticking with a style. After a thorough consultation, we helped him hone his desired aesthetic…

Pink bliss ombre nursery

23/04/2019

A few months ago an expectant mum-to-be reached out to us to help design a nursery for her little one. After a few sneak peeks on my Instagram on the day of the installation, we had many requests for the reveal post. So here it is – better late than never. The design brief for this room was to create a space that was both elegant and a little more ‘grown up’ than your average nursery, whilst maintaining…

Ready, Steady, Style | White Moss Makeover

14/04/2019

When Leanne from White Moss asked us to join her and another interior design team for fun day of styling at her beautiful home, we were intrigued with the idea of some styling on the fly, so to speak, and immediately said yes. And not just as an excuse to visit Casa White Moss again, but also to enjoy an exclusive preview of the new collection that we would be showcasing. A random draw decided that the lovely…
