1. Style your Summer, Moroccan. Let’s linger here for a while. The green tiles matched with the outside greenery. And the wooden shutters. Love it! Need more…click here.

2. Boho Vibes. I had to share this dream shoot photographed by Francesco Vicentini for the December 2016 issue of L’Officiel Azerbaijan. It’s boho meets Studio 54. I absolutely love this look. See more here.

3.  Minty. If I ever had any doubts about mint green, they’ve all vanished. This apartment in Paris is paradise and so supremely pretty.

4. LudditeI am a huge fan of anything industrial. The darker. The moodier. The better. So, when I spotted this antique shop in Brooklyn, NYC – I had to add it to my bucket list.

5. Vintage Christmas. I’m not a huge fan of the whole getting-up-early-to-battle-other-shoppers-for-Christmas-stuff-at-the-mall. This week on our radio show, Dead People’s Stuff, we did a roundup of our local vintage haunts and played some anti-commercialism anthems, including this track by The Saints. It’s a kicker.

6. Baz Luhrmann Auction. This week treasures owned by filmmakers Baz Luhrmann and Catherine Martin went to Auction. CAN YOU IMAGINE! I had to console myself by devouring my old copy of Vogue Living Australia, featuring the homestead from their film ‘Australia’.

7. Room Envy. I am not sure who took this photo or where it’s from, but I love its dishevelled romance and how all the elements come together; from the sequined showgirl outfit to the Mary statue and the antique French crystal chandeliers. I LOVE IT. So very, very me.

8.  La Vie En Rose. Fascinators are my all-time favourite vintage accessory. And I’m forever buying long 50’s pink satin slips to swan about in during the day (worn with docs or converse). So I had to give myself over to this shoot from S Moda El Pais November 2016 issue by photographer Gorka Postigo. It captures both, beautifully.

9. Sheer Opulence. I’ll always have a soft spot for vintage velvet. Which is why this fairy tale shoot lensed by Lena Manakai for Elle Kazakhstan is so alluring.

10. More Industrial Love. Industrial style using shades of green is coming on stronger than ever and this room is a total dream. For more inspo…click here.
