Our Holiday Home Reveal Part 3 : Master bedroom and bathrooms

29/09/2018

Work has been so ridiculously busy the past two weeks that I haven’t been on the blog much. We are working on some great new projects which I look forward to sharing on here in the coming weeks but for now, I’m conscious that I still owe you guys more room reveals from our new holiday home. So whilst the family are chilling in the pool this weekend morning, I’ve started to type this post on my iPad…

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…

Palm Jumeirah townhouse

07/09/2018

My lovelies, I’m finally getting around to sharing this bright and airy open living space with you. This living area of a Palm Jumeirah townhouse was actually something that we finished up a while ago, but somehow my very busy summer got in the way of getting it up on the blog. Nonetheless, we are back in Dubai, routines are settling in, I am back at it and very excited to show you this lovely home. We designed…

Kaitlyn’s new desk mini makeover & GIVEAWAY

09/07/2018

This mini-makeover in my daughter’s room is a classic tale of ‘mom-guilt’. We all know it and I am sure many can relate. Kaitlyn has been patiently asking me for a desk in her room since before Christmas and I have repeatedly promised her that I will get around to it ‘soon’. And to be fair, I had every intention to do this for her as soon as I found the proverbial ‘gap’. But the year got super…

Bold Botanical toddler room

07/07/2018

We had so much fun decorating this room for the sweetest toddler. Her mum has incredible style and had already purchased almost all of the items in the room so she called on us to help her style it in their beautiful new home. We usually shy away from projects that require styling only as it’s difficult to put your stamp on a space when you have to work only with what already exists, but in this case…

Gorgeous Grey Bedroom Reveal

14/06/2018

If you have caught any of my Intsastories lately, you might have seen a sneak peak of one of our latest master bedroom designs. Our lovely clients, a South African couple who we first met when they reached out to us to design their baby boy’s nursery last year, were keen to upgrade their bedroom. After loving the look and feel of the nursery, they were keen to incorporate some grey into their master bedroom too. I’m not…

Floral Delight Makeover

05/06/2018

Following on from our recent post about the Boys Adventure Bedroom, we are excited to share the next makeover with you – a shared girls room. The floral wallpaper had us smitten from the moment we saw it and we knew there was no turning back. There is definite shift in my design style as the team and I are venturing towards some adventurous wallpapers and and bolder prints – and in a space like this, you can…

Boys Adventure Bedroom Makeover

26/05/2018

A little while ago we were asked to create two new rooms for four young siblings. The project had a tight timeline that presented several challenges, but we pulled off two rooms in excellent time – one for the boys and one for the girls. The project kicked off with the boys room makeover, followed closely their sisters’. This room was so much fun to design and install for a really lovely client and her adorable boy brood….

  • Who even knew a plywood cabinet could look so beautiful!? Or that there 2 IKEA besta frames hidden below those fronts, sides and top?? Its a @fronteriors magic trick! 🧙‍♂️🤭
  • Our second @fronteriors product shoot is happening in  two parts this week and we’re beyond excited to share this new batch of fronteriors products with you! You’ve all seen and loved the BILLY cabinet with cane doors, but now you get to meet his big brother – a wider, deeper and all round sexier cane cabinet made up of two BESTA frames supported on our custom metal leg frame. Two cane doors, two sides and one top complete the look of what is probably one of our personal favourite combinations. Stay tuned for more sneak peeks later on this this week.

  • Lazy Saturdays.... for some.
  • We've got double doggie trouble around here for a few days as Pep's sister, Jessie, is stay with us while her humans (also our humans) are in South Africa.
  • Waking up to music is a good way to start the day. Although Pepper's not still not sure what's happening in here when the beat drops... 😂 there's always a frantic little bark like someone's coming for her. Cray cray pup!

  • Around this time last year I was working on a secret makeover project for Kaitlyn's bedroom. She went to school with much resistance on the morning of her birthday and came home to a different room. The reaction was priceless! But seriously, where has a whole year gone?  #timeflies #kidspo
  • Loved seeing this room we designed last year featured over at @mintymagazine today. Despite it being a little over a year ago, it seems like a lifetime ago. Makes.you realise how much happens in a year and how quickly it goes.
  • That time we kitted all the @houseofhawkes smalls out in the cool new @piupiuchick collection from @martin_and_ella - I think it was one of the last mornings that you could be outdoors without actually melting, so I guess it was well timed. ☀️🔥🕶🤩
How many sleeps till school's out?? #summer2019 #hot #summer #itsgettinghotinhere #piupiuchick #houseofhawkesloves
  • Say hello to my new toy, the B&O M5 wireless speaker.  She’s busting out the tunes whilst ticking all the aesthetic and audio quality boxes, looking ever so pretty amidst this re-styled corner of my bedroom. She’s destined for our holiday home in South Africa this summer (we’ve been on the hunt for a good wireless speaker for some time), but in the meantime I’m really enjoying having music in our bedroom again. I think my last source of audio in the bedroom was a clock radio!! Er, who remembers those?

In other news, the hubster is at an event this evening and I’m about to pop my podcast cherry (true story!) and I’m looking for recommendations, please. I’m yet to download a single episode, if that’s even what we call them, but I’ve got the audio situation on fleek. Kids and neighbours may be listening in too! I’m a strong case for the term ‘all the gear and no idea’, so please indulge me with your suggestions with what’s good in the podcast arena. I want to get tonight’s party started.
