I had the joy of meeting Samantha Wills a few years back when I styled her Sydney apartment for SHOP Til You Drop magazine. In a word, she's delightful and hands down one of the most talented, easy going creative folk I've ever met.
When she's not travelling the globe searching for inspiration for her upcoming collections, she splits her time between New York and Sydney.
Here are a few of Samantha's favourite things...
On the home front...
Flower: Peonies mixed with Hydrangeas.
Author: Sibella Court – a visual author, so inspiring!
Music: Everything from Fleetwood Mac to Ray LaMontague.
Perfume: Chanel Coco Mademoiselle, I am obsessed with this scent.
Skincare: La Mer because it nurtures naturally.
Makeup: Chanel for their blush palettes.
Haircare: Original & Mineral - it's exquisitely natural.
Jeans: J Brand – just amazingly constructed.
Evening wear: Halston Heritage because it’s the closest I will ever get to Studio 54 in the 1960s.

The accessories department...
Sunglasses: Sunday Somewhere “The Razzapello” because it reminds me of sunny Sundays.
Jewellery: If not SAMANTHA WILLS, then definitely YSL or vintage Chanel.
Handbag: LV tote because it just fits my life in it & withstands the beating I give it!
On a side note, may I suggest you high-tail it over to your iPhone and start following Wills on Instagram @SAMANTHA WILLS, stat. And make sure you bookmark her blog while you're at it.
