SHOP: In Sydney I always visit The Market New & Old Wares (Shop1 19/23 O’Brien street, Corner of Glenayr St. Bondi Beach) in Bondi and I also love shopping in Woollahra — Pigotts Store is always on my list in Sydney as well as David Met Nicole and I & B Perryman for the best rugs ever!!  

SHOP: In Melbourne, I visit Tarlo & Graham for fantastic vintage finds and Market Imports in Armadale is an oldie but a goodie!! I obviously love shopping!!

STAY: In London I love to stay at The Haymarket Hotel which is owned and was designed by Kit Kemp.  

STAY: In Hawaii I love to stay at either the Halekulani or the old style Westin Moana Surfrider — both of which are beachside. 

STAY: In LA I love the Viceroy in Santa Monica which was designed by Kelly Wearstler or Shutters on the Beach — a bit of old style Hamptons in LA!!
