Leather seating

Tan leather sofas and couches

Well hello there, my lovelies. Apologies for the long lapse since my last blog post. Things have been busy around here.

Moving straight on to today’s topic, something that’s on my mind a lot lately. Leather seating. Of all kinds, including sofas, chairs and poufs. I can’t tell you quite how odd it is for me to find myself gravitating towards leather furniture because when it comes to fabric vs leather, I’ve always been formally placed in the textile camp. Despite the hide’s awesome aesthetic, I’ve stayed away from leather couches because I find them cold, slippery and uninviting during winter and too warm and sticky in the heat/humidity of summer. I am however becoming more open-minded in my… ahem… old age. I think I may be taking a leap towards some leather loveliness quite soon.

As you’ve no doubt gathered, it’s the tan, somewhat aged leather look that’s really caught my eye. It works so well with black, white and greys. For anyone else who’s on the lookout for some leather action, here’s a roundup of some of the goodies out there.

  • There's nothing quite like that first night back in your own bed. #home
  • I can't quite explain how happy I was to open the front door and see our new flooring all finished when I got home this morning. Home sweet home just got sweeter. When I left last week, @floorworldllc were still working on the installation and they've done such a great job on the finishing touches. Feeling all the good feel this Monday morning. Now to attend to that to do list!

  • Good morning from a bright &sunny Lisbon apartment. Last day here and we plan to make the most of it. And suggestions?
  • Our lunch spot in Lisbon @cafenochiado - came here in June and couldn't wait to get back. #lisbon #portugal #foodie #lunch #highlyrecommended
  • Tonight's sunset was on fire!
  • I'm on a quick trip to Portugal which turned into a very spontaneous girls catch-up when my cousin from Dubai joined me and a friend of ours flew in from England to meet us. We found such a cool little villa on @airbnb that overlooks the rice fields in Carvarhal, Portugal.  Enjoying the end-of-summer beautiful weather. Happy Friday! X
  • We installed a nursery today for a very special return client and it went so well, which was a relief in this otherwise crazy week. I sometimes worry that my design studio is firmly rooted in the kids rooms category and find myself longing for more work on grown up spaces. But then after a day like today, I'm reminded of just how much I love creating kids rooms, and how touched I am by the parents response to the space for their precious little ones. And I realise that I'm actually so lucky to be able to do this for people. I also have to commend my dream team on the hard work and effort they put in to all of our projects - I've watched them all grow and blossom in their roles and am so proud of them all. Thank you @dutchcaribbeancharly @marli_smithphotography and @brittany_design_uae for all the passion you bring to HOH. I'm so grateful! X
  • So I've barely come up for air since yesterday's @fronteriors launch event - which was amazing, even better than we had hoped for. Thank you to everyone who came - we are continuously grateful for all the love and support from all our friends, clients and colleagues. 
We're also super excited to announce that we have a pop-up exhibit of our products at @nasabdubai until 12 Oct, so if you've been waiting to get a closer look at the colours, textures and new additions to our range, now is your chance! If you'd like to drop by, pls email info@fronteriors.co for timings and directions. Also, we have a discount offer for our online shop for this month only - let me know if you need that code ๐Ÿ˜‰
