Gorgeous Melbourne home - Camilla d'Antoine of Mozi
I am feeling very refreshed after two whole days with no work - something that hasn't happened for over five weeks. I am very grateful to report that I have been really, really busy, doing all sorts of lovely styling and writing jobs. Here is one of them - the divine Melbourne home of Camilla d'Antoine, designer and co-owner of Mozi homewares (with her sister Olivia- how nice is that?)
Sometimes I find homes for this page through people's PR's, or through mutual friends, or through people I chat up in shops. Really, I do chat up people for their houses everywhere, but I need to work on my chat-up lines - "So.... what's your place like?" is so lame. I need to find something much cooler.
Anyway, I didn't actually find Camilla's home. Dougal, my 11 month old nut-case of a Golden retriever did. Well, he chatted up Super Ted, Camilla's cute as a button Cairn Terrier at our local dog park. I think Dougs has better lines than me. So I met Super Ted, then I met Camilla, found out who she was and what she did, and having been a Mozi fan for some time, it all sprang from there. Now my daughter Alex is chatting up Camilla's daughter, Aggie (aka the beautiful baby who never stops smiling) because she wants to be her babysitter in a few years time. And I think her lines are better that mine too!
