Paris apartment by Frederic Berthier

This Paris apartment renovated by Frederic Berthier in 2011 is perfection. The herringbone floors, white walls and luxe marble surfaces - I love it all!

A winter hat

I want need a winter hat. Here's my justification - a winter hat will not only keep my head warm (I already have some cute beanies and hooded coats that do that), but it will also protect my pasty skin from the harsh Australian sun (yes, that's still shining in winter) and it will look great too.

This is my current shortlist.

I'm hesitating because I really like the Kookai fedora, but the quality doesn't seem great and the Rag & Bone hats aren't available in Australia which means if I ordered one I'd have to risk it not fitting or not suiting me and they're over $200 (Australian) each plus shipping.

I just watched Disney's frozen for the second time.  I love it!

Kitchens: white, grey and timber

Just a few kitchens I love and have recently pinned, all with a mix of white, grey and timber finishes.

I love the clever little storage panel in the picture below.

A hideaway coffee/breakfast/appliance nook will definitely feature in our new kitchen.

Outfit inspiration: autumn basics

We're over half way through autumn and it's still too warm in Sydney to dress for the season.  I wore cashmere stockings, a sweater and a sequinned mini out last night and I was boiling.  Despite this our shops are full of gorgeous autumn basics that I'd love to be wearing; lightweight coats, soft knits and ankle boots.  Autumn really is my favourite season for fashion.  I'd love to be able to head out in something like this outfit soon.

I'd add one of my statement necklaces and a staple black handbag (maybe with my black and white Céline scarf tied around the handles).
