Luxury Living from Ralph Lauren


The Heiress

A timeworn old world residence with a sense of history inspires a beautiful translation of bohemian romance. Artfully arranged rooms are filled with eclectic, gently disheveled furnishings and juxtapositions of rustic and refined.

It's Christmas time and make a wish!
I wish I could take a tour of Mademoiselle Chanel's apartment in Paris.
I wish I could stay in the Coco Chanel Suite at Hotel Ritz Paris for one night.
I wish I could have the Chinese antique screens in Coco's Apartment.
I wish I could have many many Chanel shoes.

From House to Home

After a whole day of arranging furnitures, moving them around, mixing and matching,
the best thing is sit down and relax in the garden and have our dinner together next to the pool 
in a warm Autumn evening.

Under Construction

Paint on the wall I selected the antique white from Dulux.

Darling ripped of the carpet to prepaired new timber floor install the next day.

While the house was under construction, darling & I went
to Sydney during a long weekend.

During the period of 3 days time we went to many places.
The Blue Mountains,Wollongong, country areas, Bondi, Double Bay...
It was crazy.
