More travels



I'm lucky with my job that I get to do a bit of travelling. Tomorrow I'm off to Cairns for a few days! Cairns, for those who aren't familiar is up north in Queensland. It's a tropical tourist destination and it's hot and humid {my hair will look great - not!}

Here's some "tropically" {well kind of} inspiring images...












Hopefully I will be able to do some blogging while I'm there but just in case, I'll say au revoir for now xx

A Fashionable Wednesday - Christine Centenera

Another of my very favourite style icons is Christine Centenera. As the Fashion Editor for Harper's Bazaar, this is one chick who knows what her style is and she pulls it all off effortlessly.











Isn't she just cool?

Welcome, come on in...

I love an entrance way to the home. Some people are fortunate to have beautiful big entrances with wide, long hallways and some you just open the door and ta da, you're straight into the living room {like moi}. Your entrance is really an important part of the home as it sets the ambience of your environment.


Really liking the huge front door




Yummy white floors for Johnathon Adler


Little bit more gorgeously rustic! Beautiful brick floor and just needs a horse to pop it's head through the top half of the front door.




More modern and clean but still welcoming

PS I haven't forgotten about my bedrooms lamps, they are ordered I'm just waiting!!

Fashion House - Tamara Mellon take 2

You may remember not so long ago I posted here about the London home of Tamara Mellon. Well she's moved on and is now residing in New York.

Her apartment in New York was designed again by Martin Laurence-Bullard and we can see alot of the same pieces from her London apartment have been incorporated into her new space. Let's have a look around...


Tamara and her daughter, Minty


The same beautiful tapestry behind the bed is used, but I think I prefer her London bedroom


Hello freakin Jimmy Choo... I don't think it's big enough!!!


Love these chairs


Great space, sophisticated yet comfy. Looks like the rug previously used in the bedroom.


I love a tufted sofa, but perhaps not this one! And the snake pics, great art but they're not something I would be able to live with!

What do you think?
