Return of the Italian adventurer



A shrine near Lake Como.

My new favourite place in Italy - Lake Como.

It feels a little weird to be writing on this blog again. I haven't been here for three whole weeks, which is a virtual lifetime in the online world. Even typing feels strange. I've had the sort of holiday that my mind, body and soul was craving. Life felt like it was getting a little out of balance and I just needed to...

Hello... and welcome back!

Has it really been a month? How time flies when you're having fun, and busy with a stack of new and exciting projects.

Well, first of all, I want to say a huge THANK YOU to everyone who wrote in with comments and feedback about the site. I've taken them all on board and done a bit of window dressing to Daily Imprint- love to know what you think. There are a few more goodies I want to add but...

thanks for the inspiration!

Every day I'm inspired by not only the people who I get to interview for Daily Imprint but the comments from those who drop by and say a few words. It's always appreciated. And so to say thank you for your support this year I want to offer a lucky dip prize (from products that have been featured on these pages) to five readers who leave a comment over the holidays. I'm going to take a month off so...

(thank you.) apartment therapy

I was taking deep breaths to calm myself on Saturday morning as I learnt that Apartment Therapy had just featured my little Bondi flat (it's like the little apartment that could... just keeps chugging along, proving its worth). Here is the feature and here is the slideshow.

It's funny seeing the photos because since they were taken I've painted so many things - the bed is now Porter's Paints Rococc...

(thank you.) madison magazine

It's funny how things come about. Stephanie Darling, Madison magazine's beauty & living director, contacted me about my blog, and she had some questions. Of course, I was more than happy to help. After all, writing about decorating is something I do everyday for real living magazine. But afterwards I wasn't quite sure where these answers were going, so I asked. In the mag, it turns out. Oh. Wow....

and welcome back

Seeing as a new year has rolled around I thought it was time to tweak the blog slightly. Thank you to everyone who gave feedback. I want this blog to be a place where you can visit for inspiration. It's filled with things that inspire me - from design to film to art.

Previously I named some of the posts "bursts of inspiration" - but, really, everything that I featured inspired me in some way, so...

Ooops. I'm back again because...

I've been given the most exciting and amazing opportunity. A little over a week ago I was asked if I'd like to be a regular guest writer for the popular blog Babyccino. (It's had the likes of Cookie and Milkmagazines raving about the site.) The idea is that the girls behind babyccino - Esther from Amsterdam, Courtney from London, Michela from Milan and Emilie from...

happy holidays

I'm off to do some baking in preparation for Christmas. I won't be doing any more posts between now and the new year. And pretty much as soon as 2009 comes around I'll be back at work - no more maternity leave for me. I'm not sure how regularly I'll be able to post once I do start back at real livingso I'd rather upload the site with features that you really love. So, please, if you can spare a...
