Obsessed about Elizabeth Cutler

Some people, like Elizabeth Cutler (founder of SoulCycle), really do have it all. A doting husband, two adorable children, a beautifully appointed apartment in the heart of Manhattan, a booming business that's opening it's 19th outlet, and a charming New American-style home in the Hamptons (East). It kills me, really.

But what I cannot have I shall shamelessly obsess and lust over and store up ideas for my own future potential far more humble abode. That wall paper in the kids' room. The cheery bright accents in the living area. The lovely, large and light drenched kitchen. What's not to love?

Obsessed About Tory Burch for Vogue

It's Christmas week - hurrah! - and we're gearing up for all the eating/entertaining activities. While scouring the web for some decor ideas (so many up recently on my favourite spaces like The Glitter Guide and The Every Girl and a festive playlist from Tory's Blog) this old article by Hamish Bowles on Tory's Estate came up on Vogue. Given that the chance of living in a manse as grand as this only exists in my dreams, I'm drawing on her porcelain-blue-on-white palette for a new year's shin dig (since my Christmas palette's been thoughtfully settled by The Paper Bunny).

Obsessed about Natalie Bloom for The Design Files

Some girls obsess about fashion. Others obsess about food. Still others obsess about beauty and the way they look. Me? I obsess about furniture and stalk (with great passion and zeal) anyone who lives in a beautiful space. Doesn't matter if they look like a troll so long as they have a kitchen counter I can make love to, or on.

Natalie Bloom is one woman with an island kitchen I could love for life. She's also fortunate to not look like a troll (far from it in fact), and helms a business that anyone would envy.

She's the head honcho behind Bloom Cosmetics (never heard of it? Then you're either male or a troll living under a bridge because it's one of the best beauty brands to have ever come out of Australia, and you need to get.some.now.), mother of two, wife to one, and all round super awesome human being who started a company from the most unexpected of beginnings....... and has a killer home. Did I mention the killer home? I'm obsessed about her home. It's just the right mix of classic and contemporary, with lush colours and luxe elements throughout.

Obsessed about Abby Larson for Domaine Home

Abby Larson can do no wrong, in my eyes anyway. Founder of the absolutely adorable wedding website Style Me Pretty, there's no doubt that this is one woman with a definite eye for style and taste. So when she started up Style Me Pretty Living in March this year, she had an immediate and forever devoted fan in me. 

If you like living well, entertaining at home, shaking up some cocktails and decorating your abode, you're gonna freak out over just about everything she features on SMP Living .

She did a short feature with Domaine Home recently and I loved all 10 tips so much I just had to share it over here.

Obsessed about Bella Koh for lilreddotfolks

I had the pleasure of finally meeting Bella in person (after months of insta-stalking her @catslavery for the longest time) last week at TP's ferociously fabulous birthday party, and trust me peeps, she's even chicer and sweeter in real life (I know, how can that be!?! Life is just like that sometimes - not fair) 

Anyhoos, I came across the amazing space she calls home over on lilreddotfolks (obviously her abode would be just as amazing as her incredible wardrobe and as impossibly irresistible as her delicious food pics she tempts me with daily) , and decided that it would be the perfect thing to share with everyone on this rather manic mid-week.

Is yours as impossibly chaotic as mine? Between Wedley, work, love and life, I find myself in a constant blur of motion, thoughts, action, and forever trying to catch up with my email --- I'm so so so sorry if I haven't replied you as yet! I'm trying to get through all of it. And just when I was getting into the gist of clearing everything my email server decided to fail me completely.

I know, what are the odds? But that's Murphy for you. Fucken up right when you need it the least.  So I'm stranded with a ton of emails to reply, and no way of doing so till the little minions that run the server get their act together. Boo. 

So I'm blogging. About something that calms me. Interiors of other peoples homes.  I loved Bella's so much that I went on a world wide internet trawl for more and stumbled upon her feature with Honeycombers - which is also excellent. You should check it out.
