“Like a vintage shop for plants”, Pre Loved Roots is a green oasis in the middle of Alexandria. They rescue unwanted plants, give them some love and then sell them out of a little greenhouse set over the canal. While I was there the girl was also propagating some succulents and caring for little vegetable seedlings. I’m about to move into a new place and I’m itching to splurge on new plants to add to my collection.

75-85 O’Riordan St, Alexandria Sydney. More details on their Facebook page.

The striking home of Italian home wares maker Maurizio Zucchi. The height of the ceilings and plants along with the flooding of natural light make this a very appealing space.

We are about to venture into the California desert but while I’m still sitting in a nice hotel in my robe in Las Vegas, I can post some pics from New York. As per usual we basically just ate our way through the city. We stayed in a beautiful apartment in Soho with giant palms, caught up with loads of friends, visited Union Square Park Market, went to a few shows at New York Fashion Week, partied on rooftops, and visited a bunch of little gardens.

My best mate and a bunch of her friends live in a beautiful old terrace in Redfern. Their house has three meandering levels, and the garden is surrounded by leaf covered brick walls. They’ve only been there less than a year but already it feels so homely.
