WORK: Arent&Pyke’s Double Bay House. Sharp with a touch of blue, green and brass. Photography by Felix Fox.
MUSIC: Fleetwood Mac’s ‘Tango in the Night’ and the new Santigold.
ART: Alan Jones depicts images pertaining to identity, aiming to communicate to the viewer the intricacies of human connections and how his own roots subsequently influence his work.
READ: Grace Jones’ I’ll Never Write My Memoirs. Badly written, but too entertaining to put down.
DESIGN: Mimosa pendant with black structure by Areti. Not intended for any of our current projects, but I will keep it in my secret stash.
COLOUR: Bottle green executed like this in Guillermo Santoma’s Casa Horta in Barcelona.
EAT: Anthony Gill’s Ester restaurant in Chippendale, Sydney.
WEAR: I’m lusting over everything by Ellery, Isa Arfen, Rosie Assoulin and TOME. Colour all the way for summer, but as we head back into the cooler months, it’s all about black and white for me. I am loving this look from Celine 2016.
BEAUTY MV Rose Oil – I have been using this product for 7 years now….and have never wavered. It is simple and beautiful, and the best thing for sensitive skin.
DESIGN INSPIRATION: Anthony Gill
TRAVEL: India’s next on my hit list! Last time I was there was 15 years ago. It captured my heart and I am ready to be swept up in the love affair again… First stop: Udaipur.
