Peek Into Adele's Office

19.08.2014

The wordsmith behind Intrinsic, Adèle finds inspiration not only in the people who enter her life and the relationships formed, but also in the colours, shapes, scents and patterns with which she surrounds herself.

Step into Adèle's office, and you'll find a bunch of her favourite blooms (think tuberose, jasmine, violets, freesias and stocks) sitting pretty next to her Intrinsic Candles. Instead of wallpaper, Adèle opted for a row of hot pink journals to add that burst of solid colour and to avoid any overload of 'clinical' white space. Scan your eyes across the windowsill which overlooks Adelaide's beautiful Chesser St, and creative colours are substituted for the soul and spirit of her Buddha collection, Intuition Cards, and a backlog of Vogue Living and Entertaining issues.

This mixture of interiors within her office reflects Adèle's personality: a vibrant, colour-loving woman and self-confessed 'Phoebe' (for all the Friends fans out there), yet also a woman who loves nothing more than a Sunday spent reading Rumi, tuning into her intuition, and finding inspiration flicking through her favourite magazines.

 

The Quick Six with Adèle:

  • My favourite scent is: My inner boho gypsy loves loves loves Purple Patchouli by Tom Ford (discontinued but it's one of my favourite perfumes ever). My other love is La Chasse aux Papillons by L'artisan Parfumer - it means chasing butterflies which just suits me to a tee.
  • Right now I'm reading: Anatolian Days and Nights: A Love Affair with Turkey. It's an autobiographical write by Joy Stocke and Angie Brenner, two women brought together by a mutual friend, who document their ongoing travels all over Turkey. We are heading to Turkey in a few weeks and I'm already planning our next trip!
  • I'm looking forward to: I'm so looking forward to getting onboard our yacht in 19 days and sailing the gorgeous Amalifi Coast with two of our closest friends…followed by 2 weeks traversing Turkey…did I mention I'm excited?
  • My favourite Adelaide hangout: We've just renovated so home is a firm favourite, but right now I'm also loving The Market Shed on a Sunday morning, Nutrition Republic for delicious raw treats with my daughter, Press for dinner and sharing good wine with friends at The Cellar Door.
  • On my wish list is: More time with the people I love; a veggie patch.
  • My top 3 Good Things of the past 24 hours are: Cosying up by the fire, having a great sleep, making a cracker thai-inspired soup for the fam.
