Style-Stalking: Caroline Issa

You may have noticed my Style-Stalking Board on Pinterest. Caroline Issa, Executive Fashion Director and Publisher of Tank, is often featured.
I love her sartorial style with a modern edge. Often found in a shirt and tailored trouser, she also mixes it up with flashes of colour, a bright lip or an amazing pair of shades.

When I got to meet Caroline, back in April, for a shoot in Shoreditch House, I was told she was lovely and she did not disappoint. Graceful, polite and unecessarily humble she was a pleasure to work with and much to my excitement, loved all the clothes I had selected for her to wear. She even wore the Zara shoes!
See Caroline in this month's Red magazine, along with  3 other successful women - showing us how they wear a Chanel jacket.

My World: Hallway

Having my own front door and hallway is still a novelty to me.
After a year, I really wanted to change the front door and make it my own. We've just finished painting it 'Manor House Grey' from Farrow & Ball -  my obssession with grey knows no bounds!

The number sticker above the door is from Brume - it was surprisingly easy to put in place and hides the ugly electricity box just behind the window!

Coat hooks, Not On The High Street
I have also got my eye on these:

£18.95, Not On The High Street

Our aim is to have a collage of pictures all the way up in different frames with different media. It's definitely an organic process...!

Our Inspiration via Abigail Ahern's book 'A Girl's Guide To Decorating':

Our attempt:

Frames have been mixed and matched from Next, Oxfam, Debenhams and Target.

Framed butterflies, £40, I Love Retro
Unframed print, £20 (was £40), Dandy Star

My magazines stacks will one day take over...
The table is part of a set of 3 from Matalan - surprisingly good homewares
