Andrew Martin Pure Genius






The Andrew Martin range of fabrics have such a sense of drama. The styling of their advertising campaigns play up on this, creating theatrical magic. I have just ordered a bolt of the Celeste fabric for a job (last image) and I can't wait to get my hands on it.

Jasper Conran - Staircase Envy






I have staircase envy. The beautiful set that grace the entrance foyer of Jasper Conran's Flagship London store are my idea of "perfection". Stone treads, detailed ironwork balustrading and timber hand rail, who would have thought that a girl could get so excited about a set of stairs.

I have long been a fan of Jaspers dinnerware and I think it's great that he has added the more casual items to his range (as seen here in the last image). The stylist did a great job on this picture there is nothing contrived about it, they just kept it pure and simple.

Designers Guild Blanket Sale






With winter well and truly here in Sydney I'm contemplating purchasing a gorgeous Designers Guild blanket. I love the fact that they are reversible so really you are getting two blankets for the price of one, at least that's how I justify it to myself.

Stella, Stella!


The beautiful home of Zuster furniture designer Wilhelmina McCarroll. Her cluster wall speaks to my love of all things horse related.

The Stella table range created by Zuster designer Wilhelmina McCarrol would have to be my favourite table at the moment. There is something quite sensuous and womanly about the curved legs. I love it so much I'm specifying it for the Vaucluse project I'm currently working on.

Luxurious Leather




In what now seems like a past life I worked as the head designer and buyer for a national furniture retailer. During my time there I was lucky enough to visit some of the great design fairs, like Milan and collaborated with some world class manufacturing companies. One of my favorite quality leather suppliers is renowned Italian company Incanto.

Paddington Perfection

Now that I have finished renovating my Paddington home I'm starting to get itchy feet. I came across this ethereal living room in a house listed for sale in Paddington. The home was designed by award winning architect Ian Moore and Associates. The old farmhouse table adds a tactile warmth to the space and the patterns cast on the ceiling from the chandelier create a calming energy.

Asian Influence








I am off to Japan for a few days and I'm hoping to bring back lots of new images to give you all a bit of Asian inspiration. I can't wait to check out the new Ralph Lauren Mansion store opened in Tokyo (see above). I have been to the Milan and New York versions and was blown away by the level of detail in the merchandising of the homewares and furnishing range.
