Hello fine folk,
I'm happy to inform you that we are jumping into a gorgeous new retail space here in the central city, Nelson.
Nook Design store is brimming with stylish home ware, art prints, accessories and jewellery. Nook has a definite Scandinavian palette with loads of white, charcoal, blush and some mint thrown in. There is a wonderful overlay of textures: natural woods, chunky knits, copper, leather, and our blonde plywood. Yum!
You can see our plywood cubes and have a play with your choice of design and colour on one of the sliding lids. You can mix & match and change them out according to decor. You can decide whether you need one or two beside the bed, in the children's room or the living space or hallway to store all those extra hats, shoes, books, bags... !
We love you, Mama!
And now that we are Mothers of our own wonderful, naughty broods - oh how we appreciate all that you did! Truly. Your patience, humour, encouragement, compassion, selfless energy and lots of love.
If you are looking for a little something to gift your Mama this Mother's Day (Sunday 8th May), we have some beautiful things to make that breakfast tray extra special. Or something beside the bed to rest the tray on! Of course, just a cup of tea and a cuddle is pretty special too.

We are chuffed to be mentioned in the latest edition of Your Home & Garden magazine.
Find our plywood cube on page 30 feature on stylish storage, 'Get Sorted'.
These cubes are super-handy almost anywhere in the house. We have a couple stacked bed-side for books, magazines, and a cup of tea and stash devices and charging cords inside to keep things looking clean. If you want to display smaller items or keep them out of reach of little fingers, try our wall-mounted shadow boxes.
For more ideas, jump onto the 'Ideas & Inspiration' page or browse the website.

The go-ahead people at The Bridge Street Collective have put together a fantastic pre-Christmas pop-up store in their cafe. They have a great selection of local designer goodies. Jewellery, artworks, environmentally-friendly textile bags and wraps from The Green Collective and Empire Eco Designs; and of course the Belle Hawk stable of plywood storage - shadow boxes, bedside cubes; paper prints and linen tea towels.
Stop in to see loads of beautifully made and affordable Christmas gift ideas. Shop Local! Hooray!
We are happy happy happy to announce that you can now find our Belle Hawk products in our first physical retail store. Ta daaa!
So if you would like to see our linens and our ply boxes in the 'flesh', call in to RED Gallery & Design Store in Nelson. Sarah and Caroline have a swoon-worthy array of art and design goodies in store, not to mention superb coffee! The artfully-edited range of local and NZ-made pieces, plus a few covetable items from overseas make it a very fine destination. We are pleased to be in such good company!
We will keep you posted as we expand our offering to some other fantastic retailers across the country - watch this space...
Thanks & wishes,

We've made it! A new range of linen cushions and tea towels, paper and ply prints are all available now on the site. We love the natural, light, Scandinavian look of the collection and the textural products we have added to our range. The new collection entitled 'Ink Fables' is inspired by children adventuring in the woods - imaginary games, dress-ups, cowboys & indians, maybe even the odd pixie hiding amongst the toadstools...
Our ply, linen and Kraft paper print are all hand-pulled screen prints, made with love by Georgie at home.
We hope you enjoy the new pieces in the range, and please feel free to contact us with any feedback, questions or comments. Follow us on Facebook, Instagram or Pinterest to get up to date Belle Hawk news and see what inspires us.
Happy Homes, everyone.

Belle Hawk is very proud of the fact that all our plywood products are not only NZ-made, but also made locally and made by hand.
Sometimes it's good to know the people behind the product; the hands that craft the goods. Introducing Will Slack of MAKE Furniture;
our plywood craftsman. Will and his small team here in Nelson are busy in their workshop crafting beautiful plywood furniture, putting together custom-made kitchens and of course turning out beautiful, quality storage boxes for Belle Hawk! We appreciate Mr (anything but) Slack for his keen eye and attention to detail, his thoughtful problem solving and his great knowledge of his craft and materials.
So when you receive a cube or a shadow box from us, know that it has been crafted by a pair of safe hands and sent with a good dollop of locally-made satisfaction. Happy week everyone.
We do like to celebrate - so why not start the week off with a bang?...
20% off all orders until the end of November.
Get some stylish designer NZ plywood in your home. It's the business.
