Continuing my love for all things Italian this week, I visited the beautiful Rosa sisters of Sicilian heritage, Elana & Nadia. Both have crafted a unique niche in Perth’s fashion scene, Elana is the Buyer at Dilettante (the luxury fashion store) and Nadia’s about to launch a candle range. Here a first look at Elana’s incredibly tasteful home that she attributes to none other than her Nonna!
Cluster of candles, perfume, flowers, taxidermy, books & artworks.
Elana Rosa, who has been surrounded and influenced by many talented friends and family including Heath Ledger (her stepbrother), artist Matt Doust & Tane Andrews as well as the designers Nikolina Ergic & Daniel Romanin from One Fell Swoop.
Bone bird, Art Noveau sconces & Mexican Madonna artworks.
My beautiful sister, Nadia Rosa…who is about to launch an incredible candle label, Maison Damore.

Whilst keeping clear of the water on the West Coast, I did have time on my hands to discover some pioneering new friends in Perth!
LOVE the works of Perth Artist, Matt Doust. Matt was well received for having painted Gemma Ward for the Archibald Prize! This painting ‘The Movement’, hangs in newly made friend and “Perth know all” the gorgeous Elana Rosa, who is also one of the buyers at the store Dilettante.
