Crate & Barrel Spring/Summer 2019 collection

09/04/2019

I was thrilled to be invited by home furnishing giant, Crate & Barrel to host a masterclass at their Mall of the Emirates store this morning. The topic was styling your living and dining rooms with their new Spring/Summer 2019 collection – a colourful affair. I thoroughly enjoyed sharing some of my top tips and tricks with the folks who came to the event, and getting to chat with everyone afterwards.

Crate & Barrel’s new collection for Spring/Summer showcases rich colours, bold patterns and unique pairings of textures. The product range also leans towards a more functional lifestyle by introducing products that not only support a smaller footprint, but function well in smaller spaces, in line with growing millennial trends. One of the topics I covered was the use of multi-functional furniture pieces and how they can add so much to a space. Take the multi-tasking Eclipse Sleeper for example, a piece I’m personally in love with – it’s a beautiful daybed that functions as a two-directional sofa (ideal for open plan living areas) by day and transforms into a bed with a cleverly disguised trundle mattress that pops into place for impromptu sleepovers or weekend guests. Extra sleep space aside, it’s just a beautiful piece of furniture. Storage ottomans are also a great way to save space and have your furniture multi-task for you because they can assist with extra seating when required and make great, child friendly coffee tables too.

The team and I really enjoyed being able to chat to everyone who came out to see us and learn some simple home styling tricks. There were fabulous mocktails being served up by mixologists from Go Bar – a name I’ll definitely be adding to my contact list!

Thank you to everyone who came out today and to Crate & Barrel for a great event!
PS: did you know that you can now buy online from Crate & Barrel in the region? My life just got a whole lot easier.

  • Sunset at the beach, not a bad end to Friday 😁 #mydubai #sunset #dubai #uae
  • These RÖNNINGE chairs are new at @ikeauae and we're wild about their elegant simplicity. In fact, therevare a few new items that have caught our eye there recently so we've rounded up some favourites on houseofhawkes.com. link in bio. #ikea #favourites
  • Can we call it a day yet? #home #evening #winetime
  • It started with a conversation over lunch that went something like this: 'so these custom doors and tops that we're forever making for clients, we should probably just make more and sell them because everyone always asks where we got them'... hmm, 'seems like a perfectly reasonable plan for two people already overwhelmed by their workload. Yalla, let's do it!' And then there was the #billyhack that accelerated our @fronteriors launch plans. Read all about my exciting new business venture with @liveloudgirl on the blog. Link in profile.
  • Walking our the door with a long to do list ahead of me, including a stop to pick up Ethan's new passport that I applied for early September 2018. Better late than never, eh!? In case you missed the news about my design collaboration with @helmiibeds there's a post on the blog with all the details - and it's available to shop online if you're in the market for an awesome new bed with a handy removable cover! 📷 by @marli_smithphotography #helmiiXhouseofhawkes #bedslipcover #removablebedcover #bedroomstyling #bedroomdecor #houseofhawkes
  • The kids and I escaped for RAK to join friends for an overnight getaway. Safe to say the smalls have had a blast!

  • I'm taling the kids on an overnight mini vacay to Ras Al Khaimah today, although they've talked it up to something substantially more glamorous... and now it's raining. Really, weather?! Anyhoo, how cute is this room? Our refreshed website is live and a tour of this space will be on there soon. But first, the mini-break. 📷 by @marli_smithphotography

  • Bed. That's where the party's at for me tonight. I can feel a cold coming at me like a freight train so I'm dosing myself and catching some early zzz's. This room though, and that afternoon light, from our styling sesh at casa @whitemossdecor is giving me good vibes. Night night insta family.
