I have a great personal reference library that I have been acquiring for many years. I have a genuine love of books, all books & reference them daily. I have had floor to ceiling shelves made to house this collection, which even has its own library ladder! Here is a list of the books I go back to time & time again, for inspiration and information. I never fail to find what I’m looking for, even if I’m not looking for anything at all.

The Stylist’s Guide to NYC by Sibella Court
My desk transforms with each different country I visit, reflecting the elements of where I am: from overlooking the Mediterranean to worn stone of the courtyard of a mosque to the modern tabletop of a groovy hotel. Each one is inspiring & beautiful in its own way.
My traveling office consists of: pencils sharpened with knives (I only write my notes with these), my paint palettes (110 colours which come in a full set swatch book- available at our shop), scissors, a special stapler with mini staples, notebooks, tape, eraser, iphone & laptop, Millenius video camera, Canon G11 & 5D.

I am coining a new phrase- well, re-working it to suit me and my style. I have been looking for this word and think lo-fi is the right fit for me!
The word lo-fi originates in the sound & music industry, however in my world it means low expense, with ease and casual abandon to achieve a relaxed, liveable space that reflects your personality & lifestyle.
