Locanda di Doris

Imagine an old tumble-down stone barn near Todi in Umbria, Italy. Imagine it fully rebuilt, stylishly furnished and waiting for you to come visit. Two suites, "Love" and "Passion", private garden, pool, olive grove, slow tourism. Locanda di Doris is the beautiful B&B created by Doris Sochaczewski and Valentino Fialdini. She’s Brazilian with European soul and he’s half Italian half Brazilian. Both are artists, stylists, food and wine lovers and trend watchers. No wonder the inn is so fabulous. I'm ready to book my flight. Trouble is I don't think I'd want to leave.

Our Print Collection

I'm been a big fan of Aussie stylist Emma O'Meara. Her work has appeared in Inside Out, Real Living and House & Garden just to name a few. Now she has embarked on a new adventure with photographer Jason Furnari.  They have opened an online print store called Our Print Collection where they offer affordable photographic art for interiors - limited edition pieces, either unframed or framed. I love Jason's photographs and how Emma has styled the shots on the website. Now I just have to choose a favourite!

Stalking a style crush

I'm ruthless when I real estate stalk. I flick from property to property with nary a second thought. Yes, bookmark. No, move on. A stalking machine. But when I saw this Paddington, Sydney property I think I caught my breath. Stylist and author Sibella Court's old shop and home is for sale. I fell in love with this building the first time I walked through the door. I spent far too much time exploring all her treasures for sale. I bought a few trinkets, a couple of her books and a knitted rat dissection (!) and on returning home told everyone they had to go. Every time I was in Sydney I would visit, quietly, reverently like a overwhelmed child in a sweet shop. I even planned to stay there when it was listed on airbnb but perhaps I have left that too late. I need not worry about her shop though. The Society Inc has a new home not far across town in a warehouse in St Peters. I wish I had the money to buy Sibella's old home. Is it creepy to say that I'd keep it just the same way? The bijou time warp kitchen, the quirky bathroom, the walls and floors and all. It would be perfect for my ever expanding collections. The link to the listing is here while it lasts.

P.S. If Australians readers have not been watching Sibella's new TV series Restoration Australia you absolutely must! I'm hooked. You can catch up on the first two episodes here.

Inspiring spaces by Carlos Mota 

It appears that I have a serious crush on Carlos Mota (I have featured him a few times lately). The man's styling and interior portfolio is a plethora of awesomeness. And if you don't already have a crush on him too, you will by the end of this post.
