Nosy Parker: NY socialite.

You've probably heard of her mum, she's a LITTLE author by the name of Danielle Steele. You have? Well that's great, 'cos here's her stylist-slash-model daughter, Vanessa Traina's New York city apartment.

Smell the money!

Love is in the air (again!)

We have another wedding today (for the record, this is the third one this year. Crazy, I know). To Anthony and Dee, this one's for you.

Better late than never.

I know last weekend seems like forever ago now, but I just had to share these pics with you. One of my best friends, Jess, tied the knot last Saturday in a sweet little place called Gerringong on the south coast of NSW. We made a long weekend of it and here are some shots of the ah-may-sing beach house we stayed at.

Pretty cute, huh?

The view from our side gate...

The view from the front door wasn't too bad either...

Now for the decorating...

Then, to top if off, we headed to the day spa at Bellachara for some pampering in the form of a Payot Facial. My it was divine.

The End.

It's Friday and I'm in love with: magazines starting with the letter A.

Since I stopped working full-time in magazines late last year, I've fallen head-over-heels in love all over again with print. I guess its because now I've got the time to devour every single page.

As a little end-of-the-week treat to moi, today, I subscribed to Anthology and Spanish 'every-day' interiors mag, Apartamento.

Really (Really) Affordable Art

I want to give the creators of this site, 20 x 200, a big fat hug. Seriously, where can you can pick up prints and photographs for around 20 bucks these days?

My order looks a little something like this...

There motto is this: (limited editions x low prices) + the internet = art for everyone.

"Every single print is delivered with a numbered certificate of authenticity that is signed by the artist, the artist's bio and statement, and instructions for caring for your print."

Try Something New Thursday: Embroidery Hoop Pin Boards

Throw out that daggy cork board, because embroidery hoops are in the house! I did a shoot like this last year, with a cluster of embroidery hoops covered in Liberty print as a wall feature, but I never in a million years would have thought to use them as a notice board. And the best bit? They cost near nothing to make. You can jump some hoops, here, for next to nothing.

Nosy Parker: Tamara Mellon

Dear Tamara,
Just like your shoes, your home looks terribly impracticable, but totally irresistible. Big fan of your shameless opulence,

Obsession for the week: Furbish Studio

To say I'm obsessed with this online store right now would be a total understatement. Here goes my wish list for the week, courtesy of Furbish Studio.

1. Spotty coasters, for just 18 big ones.

2. Owl Pitcher: right now, I have an owl living in the tree outside my bedroom window, and he could do with a friend...

3. Bar Table: I've always said, every good party house needs a wet bar and this timber/bronze/glass baby is The One.

Going to the chapel...

One of my nearest and dearest friends, Jess, married the love of her life yesterday. I wish them a lifetime of joy, adventures and a ton of happiness. Big love to you both.

Oh Celine, you get me every time!

In my wildest dreams, I wear Celine top-to-toe. Except, before I even had time to register the clothes and bags in these shots, the little frustrated interior decorator that lives inside my head said, "Forget about the handbags lady, this range could make the perfect room!"

And he's so right. Just imagine all that orange, pink and blue fabulousness in cushion form? Heaven!

How to 'dress-up' your home

Like wine and cheese, fashion and interiors go hand-in-hand. This blog, The Coveteur goes inside the wardrobes and homes of stylists, designers, publicists and fashion editors, to see what they're currently coveting.

Think ah-may-sing clothes, sky-high heels and fabulous flea market finds and you get the pretty picture.

So young. So cool. So stylish, it hurts.

Here's a sneak peak at the Parisian digs of actress, model, half-sister to Charlotte Gainsbourg, and daughter to Jane Birkin, Lou Doillon.

The girl eats style for breakfast.
