Hello, 2011!

Bring it on, baby! Not sure about you, but I'm dubbing this one my official year of change. Big change. Huge change. Here's to good health, happiness, homewares and lots more. Peace out. x

Adding to the to do list...

Stylish and affordable, these DIY projects have rewarding-task-for-the-holidays written all over them...

1. Hessian headboard, anyone?

2. No ordinary coat hook...

3. Your own vintage-inspired print...

Pink, for grown ups.

Not sure how well the pink would go down with the man in your house, but I think it works a treat. Welcome to the pretty London home of wallpaper designer and once-wife of Noel Gallagher from Oasis, Meg Mathews. Enjoy.

Obsessions for the week

You might think you're all shopped out after Christmas, but wait til you see these babies.

1. Third Draw Down: A hub for quirky/unexpected gifts, bits and bobs for kids and homewares. My vote goes to this can't-believe-it's-not-a-lampshade pinata and artwork below.

2. Page Thirty Three: In my opinion, anyone who can make mundane goodies like a milk crate look this good, deserves my money. Great for storage, or upside down as a side table. Make sure you check out the cinematic light boxes while you're there.

3. Chip Chop! Their clothes and bags are the bomb diggity, and naturally, the pillowcases are too.

Sorry for banging on about Kate Spade twice in one week...

... But I just had to share these pics of its pop-up store adventure that was recently in London. The interior styling is so great, you barely notice the handbags. And that's saying something.

Cool space for a cool lady

The owner of this pretty place, Jacqui Lewis is a Jill Of All Trades. Amongst other things, she's a PR guru, blogger, entrepreneur, mother and all round great lady with impeccable taste. I shot her in her 'old' house last year, but recently discovered on her blog that she's moved digs. Here are some pics of the 'new' and 'old.'

The 'new' apartment has a very different vibe indeed which I'm more than loving...

The 'new':

... vs. the 'old':

Dear Ms Spade...

You are my hero. I love your home just as much as I do your punch-bright shoes and stationary. You rock, lady.

In the genes

P.S Frontliners' is the love child of writer, stylist and blogger, Natalie Walton and photographer Kata Varga.
