My friend Olivia has been asking me to write more blogs and reminding me that I've been slack in not doing so. So, I'm going to make a concerted effort to write weekly! I have a photo of a beautiful English manor as my screensaver and it got me thinking about where I'd live if I had the choice of anywhere in the world and unlimited money of course! A palazzo on the Grand Canal in Venice, a villa on Lake Como, a house overlooking the ocean anywhere really, an English countryside manor, a designer apartment in Copenhagen, a pied-a-terre on Paris's Left Bank? These are all places that hold great appeal to me.
I am currently a stay at home mum with my first baby - a beautiful girl, and career-wise I am a children's book editor. I am a travel aficionado and have been to around 30 countries in the past six or so years. I'm a keen photographer, history lover, and great fan of interiors and design - especially classic French and English styles. I live in a rambling old Federation-style house, which my husband and I are renovating. I live in the genteel town of Ballarat (Australia) where so many of the houses are Victorian era and were built beautifully with gold-rush money. Prior to moving to Ballarat, I lived in Melbourne for a year and in London for four years before that. This blog is to share my favourite homewares, photos, design inspiration, and also to share my love for travel. All photos on the blog were taken by me, unless otherwise specified.
