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.
