House of Hawkes turns six | reflecting & evolving

15/09/2019

After a busy summer spent in South Africa, and the madness of getting back into office mode, I realised yesterday that it’s House of Hawkes’ birthday month! I mark the month rather than an exact day because, frankly, I don’t recall the exact date I ‘went live’, at that point, the blog was a loose commitment at best, but it was in the midst of September 2013. In some respects, it feels like a lifetime ago. It’s been…

La Cotte Farm, Franschhoek, SOUTH AFRICA

23/08/2019

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…

11/06/2019

In yet another fine act in the art of of procrastination, we are a little late on ordering gifts for Father’s Day – approaching at a helluva speed. As a result of our panic, we’ve taken a load off your shoulders and whipped up a fresh batch of delightful gift ideas just for Dad. Getting creative when it comes to Father’s Day gifting is easier said than done, kudos to all of you who pre-emptively bought something knowing…

  • We started work on this shared sibling room just before the summer and after long delays with some of the items we ordered, we finally managed to apply the finishing touches last month. There's a full reveal on the blog. Link in profile.

  • @d3dubai is one of my favourite Dubai districts. I'll be back there this afternoon with @liveloudgirl to talk about building a business in the social media age and our @fronteriors journey thus far. We kick off at 6pm if you around and would like to join us.  #downtowndesign #ddw2019
  • Yesterday was our first day in the new studio.  Given the distinct lack of furniture, we unpacked all the crazy onto the one @andtradition sofa that we have. 😝 Thanks to @marli_smithphotography for capturing this hilarious moment, like the new age working mum that she is - with a baby on her hip. We were just missing our other brand new mummy. New chapter starts here. #studiofronteriors #girlgang
  • Dreamy terrazzo feels at the @nwt.newterracotta exhibit at @downtowndesignd #ddw2019 #terrazzo #downtowndesign
  • Aw, look at these little guys sky-rocketing the cuteness scale in yesterday's nursery installation. And as for that colour (Exhale) from @jotunpaintsarabia 2020 collection, I'm smitten!
  • @marli_smithphotography and I tried to shoot my kitchen makeover today but rain has ended play unexpectedly.... hey ho, you can't get me down though, I'm loving this new space too much!
  • A busy and exciting week lies ahead, peeps! Aside of an installation to complete for a lovely new client, I'm right on the cusp of a super exciting milestone. @liveloudgirl and I are moving into a shared studio space... because since the inception of @fronteriors we're basically married so getting a place together seems like the obvious next step 😂 But seriously though, we're becoming a blended tribe of sorts and we are really excited for this next chapter of creativity, with our respective teams working side by side while we steer the runaway train that is fronteriors. 
The new studio is a dreamy blank canvas of endless artistic possibilities. We've already treated it to some @jotunpaintsarabia magic on the walls, but I suspect that that the evolution of this workspace will be constantly in motion. Stay tuned.

  • Forever discovering treasures in mom's office only to be told they're for someone else's room. She'll tell you that's the story of her life. Wonder where she gets that sense of drama? 🤔 🙎🏼‍♀️ 🐳 @bigstuffed

  • On the blog this morning is a better-late-than-never edition of our popular 'scene & heard' series.
