How Loaf.com can make your home look like this stunning Sydney bolthole of Collette Dinnigan

Back in October 2011, I featured Australian fashion designer Collette Dinnigan's home in Sydney as one of our Editor's Choices homes. It is still one of my favourite celebrity homes, capturing the essence of laid-back elegance and a comfy, lived-in feel in tune with nature.

Today I'll revisit her gorgeous home, with a few more photos thrown in for good measure and a special feature of using products from Loaf.com, formerly The Sleep Room, to recreate the look.

What a great spot to sit and while away the afternoon with a good book! 


The extra deep Crumpet Armchair has similar shape and velvety feel, described by Loaf.com as "the sort of armchair worthy of taking out for a cream tea on a rainy afternoon".



Collette Dinnigan's bedroom is a haven of calm, with French windows opening directly to the garden. 



For similar bed try the hand-made Piper bed, from £625. If you're inspired by Dinnigan's simple and chic bedding, check out valance by Loaf seamstresses in Derbyshire, from £125; and ultra-soft cotton Lil Softie bedlinen from £10 for a pillowcase.

Bright and airy, full of fresh flowers, decorated with a muted neutral scheme emphasizing the amazing shapes and sizes of selective touches, spacious green outdoors space, everything about Collette Dinnigan's house is impeccable.

For similar kitchen table, try the Plank table at Loaf.com, made from sustainably sourced solid oak.

A lesson of how to use strictly neutral and calm palette to great success is seen in the open plan living/dining room, glimpsed from the outdoor pool



Ok, so you may not be able to recreate this pool and palm tree at home in Blighty, but you'll still be in for a real treat when it comes to chic, elegant and timeless indoor furniture at Loaf.

Hope you're inspired by these images. Happy weekend from Topcelebrityhomes.

Inside Heidi Merrick's home: gorgeous rustic-chic house in Los Angeles

Fashion designer Heidi Merrick's home is exactly what I love my vacation home to look like: rustic, laid-back and very elegant.
Photos from The Glitter Guide, perhaps via C Magazine. (Though I'd say these images are far from glittery)
The living room of Heidi Merrick's house in LA is painted a brilliant white, with arch doors, simple furniture and tropical touches such as bougainvillea and banana tree. The whole effect is relaxed and fabulous

A glimpse from the dining area to the living room. The whole space merges into one


In Heidi Merrick's master bedroom, a vintage mirror has the glass removed to become a quirky picture board



Love the idea of arranging lotions and potions into a beautiful tray. Will try it myself

Isn't Heidi Merrick's living room so rustic-luxe?



The simply furnished kitchen looks warm and lived in

Only blue-spine books make it to the book shelf, a very edited approach

The coffee table is evocative of languid days



The book case looks comfortable in its skin


An ottoman serves as a day bed in the living room, made luxurious with a cow hide rug


A vintage corner



The bedroom of Hiver, Heidi Merrick's daughter. "Every girl should sleep in a canopy bed", said the fashion designer


The outdoor space of Heidi Merrick's house looks like that of a Mediterranean village home


The outdoor iron furniture is Heidi Merrick's most sentimental piece in the house. "I have two sets, each from a Grandmother. Both sets are over 50 years old. I unsentimentally painted them blue but I painted the blue of my dad’s shaping room — so that makes up for it."

Inside Florence Welch's home in London: vintage bohemian home from Florence & The Machine's lead singer

English singer-song-writer Florence Welch (born in 1986) rose to fame as the lead singer of rock band Florence and the Machine, lives in this bohemian home in London, a treasure trove full of vintage finds and family heirlooms.

Photos from Vogue.com

Florence Welch's kitchen has an English-country feel, with tongue and groove paneling, vintage furnishing and a relaxed vibe. Very un-rock star.

Florence Welch's bedroom is a mix of country & quirky, with a tapestry wall hanging, vintage drawings, and eiderdown and a pineapple lamp.



The bohemian living room could have come straight from a Bloomsbury set


Florence Welch's bathroom has the right mix of English country and glamor, with silver iridescent tiles, tapestry blind and a gilded chair. Even the toiletries are decanted into beautiful vintage cut glass bottles and jars.



More tapestry in the landing




The blooms on Florence Welch's book shelf look freshly-picked from the garden, whilst the shelf boast titles such as Fitzgerald's "The damned and the beautiful"


The dressing room resembles a vintage clothes shop
