Favourite things roundup: One for the boys

favorite things for boys rooms

Wowzers, it cat believe its Friday – and basically the end of May too! Is anyone else completely stunned that we are almost half way through this year? Remember those days as a kid, when a year felt like a lifetime. Sigh….those really were the days.

So, on the subject of kids, my roundup for this month features some of my favorite pieces for little boys’ rooms.

I recently discovered an amazing Dubai-based company called POMME which produces a beautiful range of handmade kids furniture. Available in white and a range of signature pastels, the designs are simple, practical and stylish.

I love the idea of using this clothes rack to store my son’s extensive collection of superhero costumes. Not only will all the colorful costumes serve as a funky decorative accessory but it would keep him and his mates from ransacking his entire wardrobe every time duty calls…  which, let’s face it, is almost always.

This toy box is another item on the POMME must-have list. Is it not fabulous!?

My son has been after a gown for a long time… I found this number at Zara Home. So cute!

When it comes to children’s bedding, you can never go wrong at The White Company.

Another recent gem found in Dubai (there are so many that I need to share) is The Little Lala Co. ‘Mompreneur’ and owner, Catherine McEvoy, designs bespoke wall art made of cutouts backed by patterned papers or fabrics.  You can purchase her ready made options or have something made specifically to match your child’s room, using a paper or fabric of your choice.

Jamal the camel must be a best-seller with expats living in Dubai. What a great keepsake to take back home one day.

These canvas storage baskets from Pottery Barn Kids are a firm favorite in my kids’ rooms – they are so practical and easy to wash.

I just adore this tricolour rug from Zara Home.

  • 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.

  • So who's remembered that Father's Day is upon us? In case you're in the last minute dot com camp like us, we've rounded up some fab suggestions on the leg blog. You're welcome 😉 #fathersdaygifts #fathersday #dad #spoilingdad #giftideas
  • Manic mornings start like this.... it's so bright and hot at the moment, I feel like a need my sunnies inside! ☀️🕶
