Styling with White Moss

09/02/2017

When Leanne Moss of the gorgeous online home store, White Moss, recently asked me if I could help her with styling her home, I jumped at the chance. It’s no surprise that I am a big White Moss fan – their natural materials and neutral colour pallet are right up my style alley – and Leanne is just lovely too.

Leanne has recently made some changes at their home and I was eager to jump in and help with styling a new look, particularly in their living room, which is a beautifully tranquil space. It was great fun being able to raid the White Moss warehouse for items to complete the look.

We installed two Raffia Island Pendant Lights in the living and dining area for an earthy contrast to the ample white palette. The White Sun Tribal Plate fills a large wall that was otherwise stark and empty, and the Farmhouse Folding Stool was also a new addition to this area.

The lake view garden to this home boasts an enviable selection of cacti and I made sure that some of these beauties took up residence indoors. The live greenery adds a vibrant pop of colour, and is always a good idea. If you’re not blessed with green fingers, or a back garden full of cacti – or if you need to avoid the real cacti in order to preserve curious little fingers, be sure to check out the Rattan Cactus Pot. It would tick the same box and is simply adorable.

The subtle use of greenery is echoed by two green frames in the gallery and the upholstered  benches at the dining table. Subtle yet highly effective. We placed a Sunburst Rattan Mirror above the console and it makes for a perfect match.  This piece is handmade using woven rattan techniques and partners well the Bali Bowl Chairs.

All in all, the living room got a pretty cool makeover – helped immensely by the installation of white laminate flooring.

Upstairs, the master bedroom and nursery (baby White Moss is expected this summer!) share similar tonal values and textures. We used another tribal plate, this time the Monochrome Tribal (these babies are so versatile), above the existing pallet headboard and added even more texture to this ethereal room with pieces like the Phoenix Macrame Wall Hanging, the Fisherman Pendant lights, Belly Basket and Raffia Pouf at the foot of the bed.

Hold your breath for the The Alice of Wonder Stool! This fluffy bunny chair is a unique, magical and whimsical piece that has been deliberately designed for children and is an absolute favourite of mine. Your smalls will love this bunny with it’s soft, faux fur seat and natural wood finish, complete with white socks. Suffice to sat that the Bonnie Baby Crib is equally as dreamy.

    • 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.
